Men and women can both be victims of sexual violence

Caroline Traylor

In the March 29-April 5 issue of The Paisano, the “Ending Rape on Campus”  article did not mention male victims of sexual assault. According to 2015 data from  the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, one in 16 men are sexually assaulted  while in college. Additionally, the report found that men comprise nine percent of  sexual assault survivors in the U.S. The omission of men in the story was an  oversight. The Paisano appreciates readers like Emily Ehling, who wrote a  letter to the editor (published in the April 12-19 issue) pointing out this omission in the story . As the independent student newspaper for the UTSA community, The Paisano values all student voices as they ensure a more thoughtful conversation.
