A survey of 11-to-14 year-olds found:
· 51% of the boys and 41% of the girls said forced sex was acceptable if the boy, “spent a lot of money” on the girl;
· 31% of the boys and 32% of the girls said it was acceptable for a man to rape a woman with past sexual experience;
· 87% of boys and 79% of girls said sexual assault was acceptable if the man and the woman were married;
· 65% of the boys and 47% of the girls said it was acceptable for a boy to rape a girl if they had been dating for more than six months.

Societal Attitudes Supporting Rape (via searchingforavila)

UDPATE from SAFER: Thanks for all of the thoughts and comments on this post. To answer some of your questions, the study itself is dated back to 1991. (White, Jacqueline W. and John A. Humphrey. “Young People’s Attitudes Toward Acquaintance Rape.” Acquaintance Rape: The Hidden crime.” John Wiley and Sons, 1991.) While it is likely that attitudes are not completely dissimilar to those of 1991, it is worth noting that this research is dated and to be taken with a grain of salt. If you have any other particular questions, please feel free to email us at contact@safercampus.org. Thanks!
