Food For Thought:

This episode of Grays Anatomy, episode 19 should be watched: https://www.vulture.com/2019/03/greys-anatomy-recap-season-15-episode-19.html

“It’s not normal for men to commit sexual violence. It is normal for women to experience it.”

This attitude also demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of what constitutes sexual violence, and a willingness to believe that it’s standard behavior among rowdy young men. In reality, it is not typical behavior: though far too many women experience sexual violence, most men are not sexual criminals.
