Please, Pass it on!

Unfortunately, a nice, normal man can turn into a date rapist. However, there are some men who are more likely to be sexually aggressive than others. Watch out for:

*men who do not listen to you, ignore what you say, talk over you or pretend not to hear you. Such men generally have little respect for women and would be more likely to hear "no" as meaning "convince me."
*men who ignore your personal space boundaries.
*men who express anger or aggression towards women as individuals or in general. Hostile feelings can easily be translated into hostile acts. Such *men often get hostile when a woman says "no."
*men who do what they want regardless of what you want. If a man does this in little ways--for example, if he makes all the decisions about what to do and where to go without asking your opinion--then he may also be likely to make the decision about whether you are ready to have sex with him.
*men who try to make you feel guilty, or accuse you of being "uptight" if you resist their sexual overtures.
*men who act excessively jealous or possessive.
*men who have wrong or unrealistic ideas about women (for example, "women are meant to serve men"). Such men are not likely to take your objections to sex seriously.
men who drink heavily. A "mean drunk" can often get sexually aggressive, angry, or violent if he is rejected.
