I have noticed these stories emerging on Fox News--I'm not sure if this is an increase in campus rape and sexual assault, or just an increase in these cases being reported:

This is an article about an event that occurred at a Catholic school, of all things. That is a bit surprising--or is it?

Is this an example of going to far in the other direction? While some campuses don't take these accusations seriously, are there others who act on accusations with too little proof? I'd like people to weigh in.

Continuing this series about rape prevention--I previously wrote about power reassurance rapists, their MO, and methods of avoidance, and escape. I'm writing about these types in order of danger, from the least violent, the power reassurance type, to the most dangerous--Anger Excitation-Sadist. In this post, I'm going to describe the power assertive type, more dangerous than the power reassurance type of my last post.

Methods of Avoidance

§         Will tend to terminate the rape if victim resists

§         Most likely of all rapists to be dissuaded if scream, cry, plead, or fight

§         Could be dealing with power assertive rapist starting off with softer approach – do not want to upset that rapist type

§         Start off with nonviolent tactics – crying, pleading, praying aloud – if he becomes verbally abusive, you do not have a power reassurance rapist

§         If you can attack his conscience, or his weak point, the better luck for avoiding the rape

§         Do not attempt to “talk him out of it” – he will interpret that as your enjoying it, like in a relationship – you must use more angry and shocking tactics

§         With this type of rapist, fight; although he will occasionally have a weapon, it is generally an empty threat and he will not want to deal with an overly resistant victim

Rapist Types and Methods of Avoidance

Power reassurance rapists

These are the most common types of rapists on college campuses. When rapes happen on dates, or at frat parties, they are most likely to be committed by this type of rapists. They are not wanting to harm their victim, while they may plan it ahead of time, more likely it is a crime of opportunity. Add to this the lack of good judgment and loss of inhibition that results from drinking lots of alcohol, and there you have the one of the scenarios for on campus rape.

 That is only one scenario, though. Other times the attack might be preplanned by the offender. Here is a break-down of the behavior aspects of the power reassurance rapist:

This is a very difficult topic, for many reasons. Some of the things that make it difficult is while it is clear that there is a problem, there does not seem to be consensus on the best ways to solve it. How much of the responsibility falls of the women to protect themselves? How much falls on the campuses to protect them? Adding to the difficulty is the cultural tendency, in both law enforcement and administration, to blame the victim, more than the perpetrator. I understand the reasoning, to a point--they don't want to falsely imprison a person who is innocent, and may be the victim of a vindictive lie--but at the same time, that is a weak straw man argument. Understand another viewpoint, and agreeing with it are mutually exclusive.
