Todays sadly growing trend in America is date rape We hear about date rape on the news in classrooms and through school rumors almost daily Fortunately in recent years the occurrences of violent rapes those that are committed by unidentified men who forcibly attack women and then proceed to rape them are slowly decreasing Unfortunately date rapes which were virtually unknown a generation ago have now become a common place Unlike a violent rape a date rape is committed by someone known to the victim In these types of situations the rapist can sometimes be even the victims best friend A date rape can leave emotional scars much deeper than those that are left from a violent rape because the crime is committed by someone whom the victim has an attachment to Because of this many times the victim goes into denial and refuses to accept the fact that she has been raped But the question on everyones mind is who do we put the blame on or whose fault was it in the first place I dont agree with Camille Paglias view saying that date rape is usually the girls fault and I cant really say I agree with Susan Jacobys notion that date rape is caused by miscommunication between the two sexes Date rape is caused by societys lack of awareness and prevention of this vastly growing trend Date rape is an epidemic that is slowly plaguing our entire nation and unless some drastic action is taken immediately this epidemic may never be cured The bottom line is that rape is rape no matter what word you put in front of it Camille Paglia believes that it is almost always the girls fault for being raped due to her own lack of basic street smarts Paglias argument displays a gender that is nave to the surrounding world and its dangers She states Rape is an outrage that cannot be tolerated
