The following post is an educational post and due to including what reactions deter specific types of rapists the most, I encourage everyone to reblog this. While creating a consent culture that replaces a rape culture involves educating boys and men about respecting women (our space, our boundaries, our value as human beings) we currently live in a world with men who already don’t respect women and who demonstrate that through acting out violently against us. This post gives a brief, jot-note style summary of the different types of rapists, the level of violence and language involved in their rapes and what you can do if you’re able to identify what type of rapists you’re dealing with. Remember, even if they do not stop it is not your fault. They should not have assaulted you in the first place. This is based on information from the College of Saint Benedict & Saint John’s University. With references from: Holmes, R. M., & Holmes, S. T. (2002). Psychological profiling and rape. In R. M.

[Note: Please do not derail this post by stating that they are female rapists too. Yes they are, but the psychopathologies and typologies of a female rapist is different from that of a male rapist. This post is SPECIFICALLY and EXCLUSIVELY the profiles of men who rape women].
