    date rape

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether the phrase in bold is common in your area? In my opinion the phrase in question is very ambiguous.

    We’ve all heard the words, date rape and sexual harassment. We’ve talked about some of these things a week ago.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
