On a number of the Rape Tropes and Abuse Tropes, we have a link/phone number for a support resource at the bottom of the page. Would it be alright for me to add a link to Pandora's Project, a message board, information source, etc. for survivors of rape and sexual assault/abuse? The site is open to anyone, though one must be >16 to register on the fora.

In Scion, would a god or scion in scion with really high social attributes be considered to be date rapeing mortals that they seduce? They can have so much power over people that their partner would not be able to make an intelligent decision.

Very debatable, since that also raises questions of whether various other fictional figures should be considered rapists. Many fictional portrayals of vampires give off this vibe, (even if they are not explicitly using hypnosis or even having sex), as would any case where pheromones are used to enhance attractiveness/cloud judgement (Prince Xizor, Oceans13 etc.) Taking this argument to its furthest extreme, you could argue that anyone who is so attractive that the victim/partner finds it difficult to think totally logically is raping them, which would lead to quite a lot of people (fictional and real life) being labelled rapists. I'm not saying you're wrong, I just think it would be difficult to know where to draw the line.
