- Think critically:
(a) After reading our textbook (Barto! & Bartol, 2017, p. 358-359) provide good definitions for
“instrumental sexual aggression” and for “expressive sexual aggression”? Justify your response.
(b) Were the perpetrators of “date rape” in the videos assigned for this week acting “instrumentally” or
“expressively” against their victims? Please provide examples from three of the assigned videos.
- Dr. Lawrence Gerard (Larry) Nassar was an osteopathic physician at Michigan State University who was
the USA National Gymnastics Team doctor. In 2017 he pled guilty to federal charges of child pornography
and subsequently pled guilty to seven counts of state charges of sexual assault of minors.
(a) Think critically: How could Dr. Nassar have been able to sexually assault at least 250 young female
athletes between 1992 and 2017?
(b) Could you propose a possible trajectory for Dr. Nassar’s crimes that would begin with state-of-the art
sports medicine and descend to criminal activity?
- Were you aware of the “Clery Act” and/or the “Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASA)” before
reading about them in Chapter 12? After completing the Course Activities for “Date and Acquaintance
Rape,” do you get the sense that most college-aged students are aware of these pieces of legislation and
can discuss ther intelligently? Why?/ Why not?
