He is the person that everyone heading out on an online date fears – that person who doesn’t see you as strong and beautiful but instead wants to use you and will leave behind scars that might never heal. This design is about raising awareness and fighting back against sexual violence and date rape, because more people are sexually assaulted by someone they know than by strangers.
This design by Jordan Bouma is a startling reminder that 1 in 4 college women will experience some form of sexual violence while they are at school. 3% of college men also report being raped. This is something that needs to stop. So many people suffer in silence and never are able to fully deal with what happened to know. Some even believe that it was their fault. This design is meant to start an important conversation about changing how we think about sexual assault and its victims.
