as a 33 year old man he was unaware that rape was wrong
If “Boys Will Be Boys” Why Don’t We Kill Boys?
Lauren Parker

As a 33-year-old, white, hetero, cisgender MAN, I can definitively say that I’m AT LEAST 20 years past realizing that rape is wrong. These “boys” are not “men” because they lack the mental maturity to get past the spoiled child’s idea that, “If I can get away with it, it’s not actually wrong.” Sadly, they seem to be in the majority, and those of us who call them out are chastised and ridiculed with aggressive displays of chest thumping and derisive grunts.
