In light of the recent events surrounding Brock Turner, the Stanford University swimmer who raped an unconscious girl, it’s time to examine the real cause of rape: rapists. Some people, such as Leslie Rasmussen, Turner’s childhood friend, will blame the victim for being raped saying the assault was caused by alcohol. She found it wrong to “to base the fate of the next ten + years of [Turner’s] life on the decision of a girl who doesn’t remember anything.” But what she doesn’t understand is that non-rapists help people who are passed out at parties. Rapists do not.

Brock Turner himself seemed a bit confused over the real cause of rape as well. In a written statement to the judge in the case, Turner blamed his sexual assault on “drinking,” the college “party culture,” and his desire to “fit in.” For non-rapists, none of those are compelling reasons to sexually assault anyone. Nothing can or will ever justify rape. 

For those that have a difficult time understanding the pie chart, here are some rape prevention tips:
