Blog #10

Abstract: My research question and paper are about how entitlement cause athletes to become perpetrators of sexual assault. My research show that entitlement is a component of narcissism and athletes possess this characterisitic often think that their needs are more important than the needs of others. I found that rape among athletes is strongly correlated with aggressive behavior and entitlement. The second part of my research question is how atheletic departments enhance this rape culture. I found that most athletes often rape more than once when they realize that there will not be any consquences because athletic departments overlook this issues. My paper shows that athletes and entitlement are highly correlated and why it is important to stop this entitlement at all costs.
