The third #uworedzone Myth or Fact was .... FACT!From the CDC:Risk factors are linked to a greater likelihood of sexual violence (SV) perpetration. They are contributing factors and might not be direct causes. Not everyone who is identified as at risk becomes a perpetrator of violence. A combination of individual, relational, community, and societal factors contribute to the risk of becoming a perpetrator of SV. Understanding these factors can help identify various opportunities for prevention. Individual Risk Factors -Alcohol and drug use -Delinquency -Lack of concern for others -Aggressive behaviors and acceptance of violent behaviors -Early sexual initiation -Coercive sexual fantasies -Preference for impersonal sex and sexual-risk taking -Exposure to sexually explicit media -Hostility towards women -Adherence to traditional gender role norms -Hyper-masculinity -Suicidal behavior -Prior sexual victimization or perpetration Learn more here: www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/sexualviolence/riskprotectivefactors.html ...
