Males Are Victims Of Sexual Predators Too

Although most people think otherwise, men are also victims of sexual predators.  And is case you are thinking male predators, although that happens as well, I am talking about female predators.  

We are so ingrained into thinking that only men can be predators that it warps our reality.  

Woman can be violent as well. In fact, at least half of all violence committed in relationships is committed by women against men.  

The overall data showed 70.7% of non-reciprocal intimate partner violence cases were perpetrated by women only (74.9% when reported by men; 67.7% when reported by women) and 29.3% were perpetrated by men only (25.1% when reported by men; 32.3% when reported by women)

In the media, or even on commercials, if a woman hits a man it is funny, if a man hits a woman it is sexual violence. Violence is wrong no matter who perpetrator is. 

A similar situation used to, and sometimes still does, exist with race. If a white man tells a white girl she looks pretty, it is a compliment. If a black man says the same thing, it is a terrible offence. He could be lynched for such an offence. 

There is a good Reddit discussion on the issue

Change happens slowly.
