RAPE by Glory Eteng
Rape is the act of forcing someone(opposite sex) to have sexual intercourse with him or her.
*Types Of Rape
This is when the ones performing the act are more than one. I.e. when a group of people force to have sexual intercourse with one person.
*Causes Of Gang Rape
1.Dressing (Indecent dressing): As a girl the way you dress speaks a lot about you. Some girls just want to attract people, get guys attention; they want to be one of the happening babes in town. Listen! The fact that you want to look beautiful, cute doesn't necessarily mean you should expose your body. Guys tend to do a follow-upon you when they see you're always dressing indecently. There are lots of clothes styles out there that aren’t body exposing and still look beautiful. You even look cuter on them. You don't need to open your body to show that you're beautiful.God fearfully and wonderfully makes you. Now guys on the other hand, the fact that a girl wears clothes that shows her body doesn't necessarily mean you should start putting your eyes on her. Parents (mothers) should teach their sons how to caution themselves. She's putting on something shot but she' didn't customize your names on it. Did she?? So take your eyes off.
2.Body Language: A girl that is too saucy, harsh, Abusive can fall victim. When you're too abusive, you easily release fowl languages, too forward. Look! Some guys tend to punish you for your words & attitude. You should be careful of the words you speak to people, how you speak those and when you speak them, because 55% of the sentence you make contains your body language, 38% -The tone of your voice (how you say the words) and 7%_The words you say. You can see that only 7% contains the words you. The rest contains your body language and how you say them. The attitude you put on while talking to people really matters.
3.Indiscipline: Some girls are just too indiscipline. They just walk and move with different guys and still feel comfortable. They feel they can be with any guy they want to be with, rock with just anybody. It doesn't work that way dear.
When the husband forces to have sexual activity with his wife.
This occurs between people that know each other. A person can be raped by either boyfriend, close friend etc. It's called Date rape. The fact that you are really close to somebody doesn't guarantee your safety to the extent of not being raped.
Don't stay in secret places with opposite sex.
You're dressing matters too..
