It is rape if:

  • She says no
  • She says stop
  • She fights back
  • She is asleep
  • She is passed out
  • She is too drunk to say no
  • She is too high to say no
  • She is disabled and physically unable to say no
  • She is under the age of consent
  • She is pressured into sex with threats, both physical and verbal

It is also rape if:

  • He says no
  • He says stop
  • He fights back
  • He is asleep
  • He is passed out
  • He is too drunk to say yes
  • He is too high to say yes
  • He is disabled and physically unable to say no
  • He is under the age of consent
  • He is pressured into sex with threats, both physical and verbal

It is not a victim’s responsibility to avoid rape, and our emphasis in sexual education should not be teaching our children how to not get raped. Instead, we should teach our children that full consent is the most important sexual ethic of all.

Still, I am filled with regret for what I believe is the biggest mistake of my life: I never once talked with my son about the risks of sexual assault, defending himself against it, or what to do if he ever was assaulted.
