I hope everyone reading is well. Before I begin I would like to make a few things clear; I am not a doctor of any kind, I have never experienced sexual assault myself, however I often come across certain things promoted by our society which make me seriously question the unhealthy attitudes western society has towards sex and sexuality and how this can affect members of that society.
A few nights ago I was watching the Big Bang Theory, it was an early season. There was an episode in which an intoxicated and upset Penny shows up at Leonard’s door basically demanding sex. Leonard then pretty much runs to the bedroom with her in his excitement. At this point I raised my eyebrows; there was something wrong with the picture in front of me but I wasn’t quite sure what it was. It made me uncomfortable. I continued to think about it over the course of a few days, I discussed the scene with my housemates and my older sister. I then realised what it was that had made me so uncomfortable.
