Dear Anxious Amber,

It is assumed that sexual assault victims are only women but this is a myth. Sexual assault can effect anyone despite their race, religion, gender, etc. However, women are statistically targeted more. 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime while 1 out of 33 men has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in his lifetime.

Signed,
Two and A Half
