We found the submission categories very limiting and were very pleased to have seen your name on the program committee. We know well of your interest in sexual assault and victims. It would have been useful to have had a category to that effect given the amount of important work in that area that should be incorporated together into panels. Anyway, this paper has to do with the context in which rape and victimization take place. However, these are legalistic words. It is important to understand people's attitudes, their inter-relationships, and their sexuality in high-risk populations where rape and violence are commonplace. This paper speaks to that growing literature. We trust you will find a good home for it in the 2002 session.
