"Men are well versed in the sexual dance as women are, and when they are fully aware that women are expected to say no even when they mean yes, men are less likely to hear “no” and accept it at face value… the “boys will be boys” sexual stereotype makes it much easier for date rapists to victimize women and simply argue that they didn’t know they were raping someone - sure, she said no, but it’s awfully easy for men to convince other men (and lots of women) that “no” is just part of the game."
