Rapists The Next Generation -- Boys

There is a real opportunity to change what boys learn to reduce the number of them who make the decision to rape.

Rape is not biological. Rape is a learned behavior. One way to help prevent new rapists is to teach boys who aren't at risk how and when to intercede safely. Another way is to teach boys what to do if they are pressured to do whatever it takes to score or to participate in a potential gang rape.

We need to be sure that rapists are not seen as people who are successful when it comes to sex.

Peer pressure is often seen as a negative, but peer pressure can be positive when it supports respectful treatment of others and when it opposes disrespectful treatment of others.
