Sexual Assault Redefined as a Hate crime
Sexual Assault is a serious social and public issues that is common in the society for a long time. Women are usually the victims to such hateful crimes that is motivated because of their gender and appearance. Violence against women can be expressed in many ways ranging from sexist language to acts of assault, rape and murder. Sexual assault as a subset category of hate crime that expresses many forms of gender-based violence. Hate crime is defined in the idealized way as a criminal offender that select their victims based on race, color, sexual orientation and disability (Faulkner, 2016). It is persecuted at a greater penalty when hate crime is defined in the court cases. Sexual assault cases should be persecuted at a greater penalty to demand the justice of the crime for the victims that had dealt with the unfairness of going to trail and those who had to heal in private.

Therefore, if enhanced penalty for hate crimes are warranted, the crimes must be motivated by hatred to be enacted to the perpetrators motivation. Hate crimes are a result of target hate rather than target lust to another individual. There is no sympathy when sexual assault is acted upon, only instillation of fear, aloneness and abuse of power. Sexual assault is an act of power and that women are submissive object of the male power and dominance. To instill hate and assault on an individual, there is no regards or caring for the victims. The perpetrator treats them as they are not worthy which translate to intense dislike of the individual to have no regards over them. Overall sexual assault should be taken more seriously by those in law enforcement, there should be protocoled put in place to handle cases in a timely manner and more cases prosecuted accordingly.
