The response has been predictable: shock, horror, revulsion, fear, incredulity and blame.
The fact is teenage girls are being sexually assaulted every weekend at parties, according to drug and alcohol campaigner Paul Dillon.
“It literally happens every single weekend and the saddest part is that girls very rarely report it because they think it’s part of the alcohol experience,” he told me this week.
“I can’t tell you the number of girls who’ve told me they’ve blacked out and only found out there’s been a guy on top of them or having sex with them when they’ve been shown a photograph.”
Dillon advises making it as “bloody difficult as humanly possible” for teens to drink. If you won’t supply alcohol or let them drink at home and they threaten to go and drink in the park, don’t cave. As he says, most won’t.
Increasing the Minimum Drinking Age MLDA to 21 and better enforcement of secondary supply laws will help reduce these appalling incidences!
