How Social Media Causes Rape

One cause of rape, which can easily be prevented, is miscommunication. Today women, more or less flirt with the sense of “no” means yes. At times, it is very hard for a man to understand what a women wants. In the article,”A True Story of Date Rape: The Katie Koestner Story”, by Brenna McGinn, Koestner explains,” Different people think the most extraordinarily different things when you invite them over.” However, in todays society of social media being so influential on young adults, invitations into a woman or mans room is almost always seen as being sexual. Therefore, Miscommunication can be seen as a leading cause of rape.
According to McGinn, she hears news of ten new rape cases everyday, but there is a always a lack of the cause to show for. When starting college, Koestner talked about a “stunning Male Specimen,” who she aggressively went after to try to date. She accomplished her goal and went on a dinner date with this man, Peter. Peter eventually, after weeks of just hanging out, took her on a fancy date to a french restaurant and ordered champagne. Katie took two sips because she felt she would make Peter uncomfortable if she did not drink. 
Further along the dinner, Peter mentions he has a house in Greece and that the two should go on a family trip to this house. Per koestner, she remembers that Peter suggested that she must have sex with him whenever she was called to do so. But she chose to laugh it off. Later, Peter decided they should go to a frat party, but koestner thought the two were over dressed for such an event. Because of this, koestner thought it would be a better idea to invite Peter over to her dorm, so they can dance under the constellations on her ceiling. Thus allowing Peter to assume he had an open invitation for anything to occur. Once the two arrive at the dorm, they dance for some time until, ”Katies arms were held above her head by only one of his arms, while being kissed aggressively.” But what seems very unclear and raises some speculation is how the story abruptly goes from them Peter forcing himself upon her, to peter sleeping in her bed. Then, in the middle of the night, Koestner finally decides to join him and get some shut eye. Eventually, she is woken up by Peter holding her arms against her chest with no let up. Peter says,” Thank you very much. I’ll see you at breakfast,” insinuating that everything was fine. What could have led to this insinuation is miscommunication between the two.
Social media is all about communicating. Sometimes the communications are great and other times people miscommunicate. A prime example of this miscommunication is shown through Instagram. Instagram is a platform to where anyone can post about nearly anything and because of this, promiscuity is tolerated and eventually encouraged by the perks of doing so. These perks can show up in forms of a rapidly growing fanbase, recognition and sometimes money. The incentives of showing yourself off on social media is what drives females to post these pictures. For example, According to the article,” Instagram model: I make more money from posting a single selfie than doing four days’ work,” by Ross Logan, Gabrielle Epstein makes,“more from posting a single selfie than she would working four days as a regular model.” This makes it easy for a women to think showing off her body gives her recognition in a good way, while also letting men to assume it is acceptable.
In the article, “Gendered Media: The Influence of Media on Views of Gender”
By, Julia T. Wood, themes in media support unrealistic, stereotypical, and limiting perceptions, while also portraying men as sexually aggressive and dominant and women as passive, unaware and dumb. Other than just social media presenting women as a sexual object, more examples arise in the making of music videos, movies, etc. According to Wood, “females are shown dancing provocatively in scant and/or revealing clothing as they try to gain men’s attention.” This is exemplified in music videos shown on MTV, as well as other platforms. Also, abuse is condoned in many films and T.V. shows today. For example, in the widely renowned netflix series,13 Reasons Why, a highschool student named Hannah Baker was sexually abused by many players on the football. And because of the football players being deemed untouchable, she saw no justice for their crimes. It is as if it never happened. Examples in movies, T.V. shows, music videos, and instagram allow men to assume rape is ok or that women crave attention and dominance.
