In order to tackle sexual violence, we need tangible societal change. That starts with dismantling misogyny and addressing male sexual entitlement.
That Guy is a powerful new campaign from Police Scotland that aims to have frank conversations with men about the issue.

The video explains how rape culture and sexual entitlement manifests itself in men’s behaviour and actions, from sending non-consensual explicit photos (aka cyberflashing), to expecting sex after paying for drinks or dinner, to coercing and pressuring women into sex.
