The rules regarding how women are expected to act sexually are more strict than for men, which has the effect that women more often feel ashamed. The positions victim and perpetrator have negative qualities connected to them, which makes it hard to identify with them. The authors renegotiate the positions victim
and perpetrator when they write stories that do not fulfil the expectations. Many of the authors use age as a way to talk about experiences from their youth as something that happened when they were young and did not understand better, a strategy I criticise for being contraproductive because it is hiding the structural problems mentioned above.
