My teacher brought it up in psych class. I'm genuinely concerned I tried looking it because I'm highly concerned. Are there other factors. Someone explain and help

No. There were some surveys in the 70s and 80s which indicated that around half of the surveyed women have had "forced seduction" fantasies at some point in their lives, or something to that effect.

Heterosexual women don't have fantasies about being raped by a disgusting man they have no attraction to, which is what men want to believe. Heterosexual women fantasize about men they're attracted to "pushing" them to have sex so they can mentally assuage the guilt of having sexual desires by thinking they were made to do it

It's nothing but misogyny and males refusing to understand anything about women and how women are systematically shamed out of having sexual desires to the point where they feel too uncomfortable to admit them

I don’t think it’s just this. Women are socialised to think that a man who pursues us forcefully, really really cares about us. The never ending messages about how a boy who is mean to a girl is being mean because he really likes her, and so on. So women are conditioned from a young age to view men’s desire for us, as love.

Which is bullshit.

And that if they love us we owe them something in return.

Which is more bullshit.
