There are several misconceptions about rape that we need to clear to prevent further wrongful thinking on the subject. Let’s break it down below by showing you:

  • Myth: You can know a rapist by the way he or she looks or acts.
  • Fact: Actually, there is no sure way to know a rapist. Too many of them appear healthy, friendly, and charming.
  • Myth: If you didn’t fight back, you enjoyed it.
  • Fact: That is a complete absurdity because this is very far away from the truth. The fact is that, during rape, it is prevalent for the victim to freeze entirely since it is very typical for the brain or body to shut down in shock. 
  • Myth: People who are raped asked for it with their indecent dressing.
  • Fact: False. Rape victims are chosen based on their vulnerability, not how scantily dressed they are. By the way, 2-year-olds get raped too nowadays. Do they dress wrongly?
  • Myth: Date rape is a misunderstanding.
  • Fact: Date rapists mostly defend their wrong act by blaming it on the drink or miscommunication. However, research shows that a lot of them are repeat offenders. Therefore, it was not a misunderstanding; it was most likely premeditated.
  • Myth: It’s not raping if you’ve had intercourse with the person before.
  • Fact: Because you have slept with the guy or lady before does not give him or her any right whatsoever to force you sexually. Consent is always vital every single time intercourse is about to take place.
