Leigh Beeson, ‘Narcissism linked to sexual assault perpetration in college, study finds’, http://news.uga.edu/releases/article/narcissism-linked-to-sexual-assault-perpetration-in-college-0316/, UGA Today, The University of Georgia (March 29, 2016).

Rationalize aggressive behaviors

The study found a strong connection between pathological narcissism and sexual assault perpetration. (…) Vulnerable narcissists express high levels of self-esteem but are actually very insecure. (…) Narcissists feel a sense of entitlement to anything they want, something that makes it easier for them to rationalize their aggressive (…) behaviors. (…) The percentage of college men who committed sexual assaults is unsettling.
