  •  and that's a valid point (0+ / 0-)

    but it's also true that what the other diary was talking is much more complicated then that.

    •  But rape isn't complicated. (1+ / 0-)

      Forging a relationship with another person is complicated.

      The conversation that the sex ed class should be addressing is how to talk about sex... not how to talk about sex so that you don't get raped.

      The young women in that class are learning that if they do one day get raped, it will be their fault because they were poor communicators or because they communicated something they didn't intend. And the defense attorney for the rapist will ask the young woman if she talked about sex with the accused before the event took place and if she did, it will be a sign that she was interested in sex at some point in time, therefore how in the hell could she be raped in the first place when she was actually asking for it?

      That teacher is setting these girls up in ways he doesn't even understand and that is what makes me so very angry.
