    I don't mean to make it sound as if sexual assault is inevitable, because I believe it can be stopped. What I meant is that sexual assault and rape are not limited to any geographic, class, religious, or cultural boundaries.

    It's not about sex, Mr. Dosis, sexual assault is about dominance, humiliation, and abuse.

    Ms. Proper, rape and sexual assault happens everywhere there are human beings. It may seem counter-intuitive, but increased reporting means that survivors are being supported and believed enough that they feel comfortable enough to report the crimes done to them.

    The same can be said of any rape. It's truly sad that this kind of thing happens in our society. And it's incredible that I read reports like this coming out of Fayetteville frequently.
