There are allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, and there are watercooler conversations about sexual violence. Unfortunately I have heard so much inaccurate information, I feel compelled to point out a few facts about sexual violence -
Coercion can encompass:
• varying degrees of force;
• psychological intimidation;
• blackmail; or
• threats (of physical harm or of not obtaining a job/grade etc.).
In addition, sexual violence may also take place when someone is not able to give consent – for instance, while intoxicated, drugged, asleep or mentally incapacitated (World Health Organization (WHO))”
