Youth Media Podcast: Rape, Social Media, and Sex Education." Youth Radio. Soundcloud, 2013. web. 4 Apr 2014.
In Ohio 2013, future football stars were indicted on rape charges due to a leaked picture of a female tied up. The photo went viral on social media and the news because the boys said that it was a staged photo. It was very disturbing to read up on how these males took control and promoted violence openly for the world to see. There is always a connection between sexual information because it should include how to be in a healthy relationship and to respect one another. “This kind of thing happens far more than we think about. At the root of sex education are issues of gender” (6:12). This is a great claim because boys are stereotyped to be the superior group when learning about sex education. Females are quick to get labeled as a whore or being promiscuous. Learning the difference earlier in life could help in justifying the attributions of both male and females in a relationship involving sex. It gives children time to actually comprehend everything about each body and gradually make better decisions. If these boys had sex education in their grade school years, maybe this could have been prevented and they could be on their way to play college ball. Sadly, they were found guilty and sentenced to many years in prison for this crime.
