The word “rape” is often thrown around when talking about sexual assault and rape, but what exactly is it?
How should we define it and what should we do when a victim feels violated?
What if a woman feels violated when a man touches her vagina?
What should we say?
Here are the answers to those questions.
What is Rape?
Rape is a form of sexual assault, often perpetrated by a man.
Rape is not the same as sexual assault by a woman.
It can also include sexual abuse, physical violence and unwanted touching.
It’s important to understand what rape is, and why it is a crime.
Rape does not involve a forced act.
The accused does not force the victim to do something against her will.
Instead, the perpetrator uses her consent to have sex with her.
It happens when a person consents to sexual activity, and then the accused uses that consent to force the act upon her.
This type of sexual contact is known as “rape by verbal, non-penetrative penetration.”
When a man or woman is verbally coerced into having sex with a woman, he or she can be charged with rape.
A person can also be charged as a “victim” of rape if she or he is the victim of an act of forcible sex, or if the perpetrator was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
When a person is a victim of forcious sex, it’s called rape by rape, and the victim can be called a victim.
Rapes committed by men can be very difficult to prove.
They may not have been victims of physical or emotional abuse, and they may not be able to establish that they were forced to have sexual contact.
If a victim is not able to prove that she was raped, it can be difficult to prosecute a man for rape.
Rates of sexual violence are similar to those of sexual abuse.
But unlike rape, sexual violence is often committed by a person known to the victim.
It is usually not uncommon for victims of rape to be sexually abused by someone they know.
What to doIf a victim wants to talk about her experience of sexual harassment or assault, she or she should talk to someone who has experienced it.
The best way to start is by talking to a friend or loved one.
Talk to a trusted confidant or trusted confidante.
If the conversation is uncomfortable or difficult for you, it may be best to stop.
But it’s important that you don’t let it go.
You need to be there to listen and to be able in the future to talk to your friends or loved ones.
When you talk to a family member, ask him or her to watch over the conversation.
The family member can help make sure you’re talking honestly and that the victim is listening to you and understands you.
If you’re unsure of how to approach a problem or question, call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-4673.
You may also want to talk with a lawyer, family member or friend of yours.
Your lawyer may be able help you develop a plan to address the issue.
What can I do if I feel uncomfortable or scared about a potential investigation?
If you feel uncomfortable about being investigated, you should not hesitate to speak with a friend, relative or trusted adult.
You can also contact your state’s Attorney General’s Office, which will take action against the person who sexually assaulted you.
You may also wish to contact your local police department.
You don’t have to tell them about the alleged incident, but you should speak with them to ensure you’re being heard.
If a friend of mine has been a victim, I can also report the crime to the police.
If you’re feeling unsafe or worried, you can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
You will be connected to other survivors and have support to talk through your feelings.
What happens next depends on the seriousness of the alleged crime.
You can report sexual harassment to the office of the National Coordinator for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
You can report other types of sexual crime to NCMEC’s hotline at 1-(800)-656-7463.
What do I do about a possible court case?
If a criminal complaint is filed, the accused is charged with a crime and can be sentenced to prison.
However, if you or your loved one were sexually assaulted, there is a chance the accused may be charged and convicted.
There are different options for getting a court to charge an accused with a criminal offense.
If your loved person is the accused, you may have a right to legal representation.
You should call the local attorney general’s office or contact the NCCMEC to learn about your options.
If the accused has been convicted of a crime, there’s a chance he or he could be sentenced.
However and if you are still a victim after the criminal trial, you have a chance to file a civil claim for damages
