It’s a real problem folks. So what are you doing to fix it ? Christ commanded us to love one another as one’s self. With these stats, I’d say folks don’t like themselves very much. I recommend folks to MAKE TIME to read their Bibles. It will change your life and for the better. What say you ?
Sexual assault is a general term that includes any forced or unwanted sexual activity, including rape, incest, sexual abuse, and molestation. Sexual assault includes any forced or unwanted touching of an intimate part of the body, such as breasts, buttocks, or genitals.
Rape, a specific type of sexual assault, involves any forced, manipulated, or coerced penetration of the vagina, anus, or mouth, by a penis or other object. Sexual assault/rape is not a crime of passion but a crime of violence, using sex as a weapon to overpower and to degrade the victim. A rapist can be a stranger or someone the victim knows including a spouse, date, or family member.
