*Funny story- Two weeks ago, I had typed an entire introduction to my new research study on what influences a negative sex culture, on my phone, straight on the 'post' category on this website (Not a well thought out decision) as opposed to having a copy on my google doc. Then, only until a few days ago I noticed my post never actually went through, (by that I mean, I probably got distracted by a notification and left the page without realizing that I didn't actually click 'publish') So, I will begin again.
With the rise of awareness and activism focused on sexual assault, I became curious as to why some people still find justification in sexual abuse, and what are some of the key factors that influence a negative and/or toxic sex culture, and how it can inevitably lead to harmful extremes. In my research so far, I have narrowed down some of the key factors into four categories, and the connections they have to the rates of sexual abuse.
- Religion/Gender Roles
- Law Involvement
Scientific studies and research on these four subjects individually have produced lots of statistics and data to draw information from, and many of which create connections and conclusions between more than one category, which makes it easier to represent my inquiry in visuals, such as graphs and diagrams as opposed to written explanations in posts. So as well, I am interested in speaking with professionals that work with victims, or perhaps staff in schools, to hear their opinion on factors and patterns they have noticed, on a more personal, local level.
