Impact of Sexual aggression or Rape:

The person who commits the crime of sexual aggression or rape is the one who has lost his control over his senses. After the crime the maximum number of such criminals feels like they did not intend to do so or it’s just sex. But they don’t think of the conditions that the victim has gone through. The victim faces big loss of sex respect due to sexual aggression or rape. The victim’s conscious and thoughts are both battered by such an incident, which disturbs the normal life of the person for a very long period.

2.

The result may be that the victim may feel unable to look in to the eyes of relatives, spouse, friends and even society members. This is like getting a sentence without any mistake or a mistake of another person. Can a person face such problem in a normal sex?

Social outlook towards sexual harassment and rape:

People do fully stand against such crime. They even demonstrate and condemn in many cases whenever a crime of sexual harassment or rape occurs. Still some of the people may take it leniently. Some of us even read the full story of new paper with interest whenever we find a story of sexual harassment and rape. Why this happens?

Actually the reason is that we forget the main principle of holy bible. Like Do to others what you want others to do to you. Similarly if you take the mis-happenings on other leniently, others will also take it leniently. When people read or hear the news of sexual harassment and rape they try to learn every single information. But what if one of their family member fall victim? Will the same person be able to stand, read and hear the whole story of rape or sexual assault on his child, spouse, parent’s etc?

Law and the rapist family:

The law also condemns the person doing such crime. But the same person is left after some fine or jail for a short period. But what the law cannot by any way consolidate the victim who will have to face the fear of that condition living in the thoughts of the person for a long time.

Family members of the Rapist, most of the time claims the deed to be driven by the victim and there is no fault of their family member. This kind of approach for saving the family member from a big crime is not recommendable and unappreciated job. They at such time forget the condition of the victim who has suffered and will suffer more in many ways in the future. Helping a rapist will mean encouraging the person to do the same act in future. And this time it may be the turn of some near and dear one.

Causes of an increase in such offences:

A number of causes have been figured out that has resulted in an increase in such offence. The first and foremost is the Pornography.

3.

Actually watching pornography may not be harmful in many cases, but mostly young ones who are not aware of the real life becomes the victim of such movies. Actually these movies consists mostly of the one sided relations between man and woman. They show that the man or a number of men are the using the woman the way they like it. The woman is shown doing the service of the man or men without any hesitation or with full interest.

But the fact that these young people forget that both of them are hired people, whom they see in the movies. They work according to the predetermined script. Not only that, young people do not know that the shooting of movies takes place between so many people like the camera person, light person, director etc. So its more like an acting than pleasure for the performers. They are paid and the young people get inspired. Result is the misdeed of sexual harassment and rape happens.

Various forms of sexual harassment has been registered from the past few decades. These include the followings.

Child abuse:

From the last few decades the story about child sexual abuse is also on the rise. People not on the young ones but the good old age people are also found guilty of child abuse. The reason behind is the degrading ethical values in our society. The moral values, which our ancestors left for us, have been on the decline since the start of the 20th century. The children are the easy targets of such criminals because they are easy to make victim by such criminals. But the child victim loses faith in life and moral values due to such a mis-happening.

Actually people have earned so much money and there are a number of facilities available that we do not feel like remembering god for any reason. Thus our values goes on a decline. The result is misdeed happenings in the society, like the child abuse. The middle age or old age criminal committing such crimes forgets for a while the faces of there own children’s. And after doing that crime will have to forget the face of their children as they will leave the criminal forever.

White people taking on black people:

Many cases has been registered in the past few years which include the white people especially the white man taking on the black people especially the black woman.

The reason behind can be the pornography showing the black woman serving the white man in all the ways to make him feel good. Moreover some white people look upon the black people as lower to them so they feel like using them for their own benefit.

But at the same time they forget the black woman whom they think of making a victim after getting inspiration from various sources is a mother, sister and daughter, just like the white people have. So if they don’t like there own mother, own sister and own daughter to become victim of such a crime then why do black woman becomes the sufferer.

Rape on Campus:

Education institutions are the places where young people go to make their future. But some young people may come under inspiration from the pornography or other friends talking etc and commits the crime of rape on campus. The result is the endless suffering and feeling of shame develops in the victim resulting in ending the career of the victim.

Not only that the career of a rapist also faces problems in future. After all who take a rapist as a Manager, Chartered account or any other higher place in the organization. Not only that the friend circle of such criminal person will end and a new kind of disgraced people will become new friends of that person. Thus ending the career and friend circle of the criminal.

Marital rape:

Marital rapes are also on the increase these days. Actually men who have watched pornography and heard sex stories of friends etc are very eager to make sex after marriage. They even forget that their spouse would need a little time to make herself comfortable at the new place. After all, she needs sex. But the eagerness on the part of man becomes an obstacle to bring about an understanding between the new marriage relations.

The result is that the woman starts objecting, while the man start becoming more violent. The end result is the marital rape. The occurrence of marital rapes declines the faith and respect between both man and woman. And on one day the relation breaks.

Sexual assault on females:

Men gets easily inspired by watching Bay watch and other television serials, sex movies or even normal one consisting of the display of the woman body and no rejection by woman to man for any reason. This brings about a change in the thinking of men. They start considering women as their playing toys. And under the impact of such movies and television serials makes sexual assault on the females. They may do this in disco parties, theatres, office, roads etc, wherever they go, taking with them their inspired sick misbelieve.
