At the end of the day, everyone is accountable for their actions. No one asks to be raped. If a man has sex with a woman without her full and knowing permission, he may face jail time and his future is destroyed. If a woman is raped, she faces a long road to emotional recovery…and thinking “if only I had done x-y-z, I could have avoided this” makes recovery that much harder. Each side should protect themselves and encourage responsible behavior among their peers.
