The term aggressor comes from the Latin word aggressor. It's about a adjective which refers to who makes a aggression : an attack, either physical or symbolic. For example: “The aggressor has already been identified thanks to the security cameras”, "The police are behind the trail of a sex offender", "The club's regulations state that the aggressor of an athlete or an authority must be punished with expulsion.".
The aggressor is a subject who has a tendency towards hostility . For psychological or socio-cultural reasons, a person can develop behaviors that are linked to the aggressiveness , causing damage to third parties. Suppose a man goes to a bank to apply for a loan. The bank employee, when analyzing the individual's financial history and the documents he presents, is forced to refuse the order. Faced with this decision, the man becomes enraged and attacks the worker. In this case, the subject becomes an aggressor when he cannot handle the frustration he experiences in the face of the rejection of the credit he requested.
It is common for aggressions to arise in the field of sport . The emotional state caused by game actions in athletes and spectators often lead to violent behaviors . A young man, driven mad by the defeat of his favorite football team, can become an aggressor of rival players, throwing stones and bottles on the field of play with the intention of hurting the opponents.
Looking at the definition of the term aggression, we note that it is an act that arises independently of the actions of those around the aggressor, or that at least does not usually appear in spontaneous response to a form of abuse . On the contrary, the most appropriate use of this word focuses on those signs of violence, physical or verbal, that directly aim to cause a hurt .
In the example of the subject who goes to a bank to request a credit, we can say that the people present at the scene did not expect the explosion of violence, since everything seemed to unfold normally until the employee rejected the request. In other words, given that in these procedures no entity guarantees its clients 100% admission, refusing to grant a loan does not represent a attack and, therefore, is not worthy of an act of aggressiveness.
Returning to the situation in which the young man reacts aggressively to the victory of the opponents, we can once again point out that this does not represent any form of violence against him or his favorite team: it is one of the normal possibilities of any sports confrontation, and no one should be enraged at a defeat , especially if you have not participated directly in the competition.
A sex offender Finally, it is the one that violates the sexual freedom of another individual through the use of violence Physical or threat. Unlike what many people believe, the sex offender can be a man or a woman and, likewise, attack men or women, adults or children. His goal, however, is always the same: to dominate his victim in a sexual way.
In this context, there are two types of sexual assault that have certain similarities:
* sexual abuse , any sexual activity that is carried out without the consent of all parties, in which practices are carried out that involve the victims directly or indirectly (that the aggressor touches them, penetrates them or forces them to witness other people's sexual scenes );
* rape , an assault in which the victim has sex without giving his consent , either due to mental incapacity, for having lost consciousness or for being subjected to certain manipulation techniques by its aggressor.
