Date Rape and the Media by Jennifer Green With the rise of feminism in the last few decades there has been a newfound sexual freedom among both men and women However this freedom is costly forcing those involved in any sexual relationship to have definite boundaries On occasion misread signals between two people can result in a situation known as date rape Date rape also referred to as acquaintance rape can be defined as a situation where a person is subjected to unwanted sexual intercourse or oral sex Camille Paglias Its a Jungle Out There and Susan Jacobys Common Decency have written their opinions on date rape Though Paglia feels that Rape is an outrage that cannot be tolerated in civilized society Paglia 538 she speaks differently to Jacobys Common Decency that men should understand the word no A woman should not rub off a situation as if it never happened be accused of sexual games or believe that feminism is the only way of erasing a date rape situation I agree with Susan Jacobys argument because no matter what excuses of mixed signals a simple no can be the thin line between being and not being date raped Camille Paglia believes that women have the solitude right to take care of themselves which take awareness and self-control She explains that Hunt pursuit and capture are biologically programmed into male sexuality Paglia 539 With this in mind it is the duty of a woman to take care of herself She feels that women must be aware of male biology and to stay away from situations that may lead to date rape With obvious situations like a college party Paglia feels that it is an open door to a rape situation But even with the fact that a woman is aware of the situation why should she take extra precaution when going to a party Even though Paglia feels that rape is a terrible thing
