Opinion "Stop Rape"

Dublin Core

Title

Opinion "Stop Rape"

Description

An opinion piece written by the incoming Collegian editorial page editor, Strite Potter. Potter notes that he had not been aware rape occurs so often at the University of Richmond, and that "people usually equate rape with seedy people in seedy areas, not responsible people in a somewhat moral environment." Potter addresses "not the aggressors, but the victims." He states it is wrong to be afraid of the repercussions and stigma of pressing charges on the rapist. He says that people will believe them and stand behind victims. He ends the piece by noting: "Realize that you have more friends to lean on for support than you know of...You are not alone. You are not in the wrong, and should not feel guilty. You are the victim."
