Teen sexual assault is a real life problem. Mostly older people are at fault of attacking teens with sexual intents. This can harm the teenagers in many ways. In the first slide of the comic strip, the teenager greets the predator. They've known each other for a while and are comfortable around each other. This is usually the first step taken by a predator which will later let his/her plan to execute more smoothly. Usually the teens meet up with these types of people if they feel comfortable around them, they're able to rely on them, a beneficial purpose, or for any means that they feel help them.
In slide 2, the predator makes the statement, "we should try something new." This is usually a step that a predator would take after he/she is ready to initiate their assault.Actions like these aren't likely the case. Occasionally the predator would just begin their assault if they feel that they are able to control the situation and overpower the victim.
In slide 3, the victim agrees, which is normal since they've known each other for a while, and she has some sort of trust in the predator. This leaves the victim very susceptible to any sort of assault, or any sexual actions.
Here in slide 4, the predator makes his first assault by putting his arm onto the victim. She is confused on why she is being touched, and begins to feel uncomfortable. From time to time though, some teens just let the action happen because they don't know what to do, or they believe that it is the only way to get what they want.
In slide 5, the predator does something that causes the teen victim to be in shock, horror, and panic. She is obviously now well aware of the situation and tells the victim off. Usually these actions can leave and teen victim with trust issues, disorientation, shock, fear, sense of vulnerability, self-blame/guilt for allowing the crime to happen or having it occurred, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, future trauma, and much more. These actions by any predator whether by adult or teen, or anyone leaves any victim with a scar to burden.
In slide 6, the victim makes her escape, the actions depicted in the story usually don't happen but she announces that she will never see him again, nor will they have any future interactions. Most of the time teen victims don't have any way to escape. The actions usually occur in an isolated area, or a place they are trapped in. Other methods used by predators are drugging, use of alcohol, lethal force leaving them unconscious, etc.
