The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, September 20, 1990 5B The Greenbrier Youth Task Force, with Seneca Men- gave a Back to ~Jner Party at Island Park. One of attending the party Allder from the Fam- Center in Lewisburg. me some informa- which I would on to you. woman went to a her boyfriend. They together for a :was a pretty serious After the movie to be alone. They car and went to a they could talk and While they began to get in- kissing and glrl liked kissing Want to go any fur- told her boyfriend to Wouldn't. They had the girl was e by her boyfriend. woman was the Rape. Date Rape Sexual intercourse. the young couple had a relation- enjoyed kissing was rape. When her boyfriend to man should Even ff the young to hurt his girl- like he couldn't What he was doing, it for him to force his have sex with him. Is a rapist. Something like this guys think girls to be in charge. really want guys they know what go for it. They girls want to have to be pushed a girls think they're let the guys be in feel guys like to in a relation- afraid guys won't they don't give in to wants. This think- Date Rape. Young women best from Date need to set limits. Decide what you want, what you're willing to do physi- cally and tell your boyfriend or person you are dating how far is enough or how far is too much. Next the young woman needs to be assertive. Say what you mean and continue to say it over and over again. Let your body give messages also. When you feel uncomfortable in a situation, move away. Young women need to trust their feelings. If your boyfriend is pushing you to do something you don't want to do, don't let him. If he won't take no for an answer, find another boy- friend. Finally, young women need to be aware of their boyfriend's actions. Pay atten- tion to behavior that isn't re- spectful of you -- even simple things like your boyfriend trying to show you he's stronger than you are. It might seem like teas- ing, but it could also mean he's not going to listen to you at other times. Remember, even good girls get raped. If you don't succeed in getting out of a date rape situation, it's not your fault. Please let someone know, either your parents, teachers, police or a counselor. Young men need to forget the male macho attitudes that "women want sex but sometimes men have to take it" and "women may be saying no but their bod- ies are saying yes." These atti- tudes belong in cave man times. If your girlfriend tells you to stop, then stop. If your girlfriend tells you to stop and makes fun of you for stopping, then find another girlfriend. You don't need a girlfriend who is going to play a bunch of silly games. No one wants to be accused of rape and no one wants to be raped. The problem with Date Rape is it happens much too of- ten. Many cases of Date Rape can be prevented. Once again, if you or a friend is the victim of this crime, please let somebody know as quickly as possible.
