And I'm not ranting I'm explaining the made up language used to make people feel like victims and make women feel every man wants to rape them.

But feminism has the same problem the civil rights groups do, most of the really big issues have all been fought for and mostly won. No one says there aren't lingering issues. Heck, the video I posted says the actual rape stat is likely closer to 1 in 52 which is still higher than anyone likes to think about, but when third wave feminists go on their 1 in 5 rants and start making ridiculous arguments like all sex is rape, even consensual ... they begin to get ridiculous.

We see the same thing in the race side of things. People upset over the term brown bag and the like as an expression of racism.


You do know the U.S.A. is #3 in worldwide rape stats? And the stats I am reading basically stay at 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men - reported - now crunch the numbers of unreported, which is like 90%. Where are the LGBT stats?

Just how far-fetched is their rant?

I've heard this argument before but I need to know where you're getting your information so I can see if the stats are credible or inflated.

I wish it was zero for men and women

Do your own research as I have already done - start with WHO - but be sure to remember that 90% of rapes are unreported due to what? Stigma and shame? Where does that come from? Is it culture-based?

I do my own research I wanna know where you get your statistics... please educate me....

Yes some rapes do go unreported but how can you say 90% if they aren't reported?

Rape is universally rejected in the western world where is it ever celebrated?

That stat is discredited. It was based on a an anonymous survey with ambiguous statements that had to be interpreted by the researchers who later admitted that their one study should not be used as any kind of definitive finding about the commonality of rape.

Also, does your statistics take into account false rape claims.

I don't know about 1 in 5 but I know and have met plenty of women that have been sexually assaulted, fought off an attempted assault or were molested at a young age...very few of them ever reported it and some that did never saw it go anywhere. It's quite alarming to think about it. I'm not entirely sure 1 in 5 is a huge stretch.

I do think times and attitudes have changed somewhat and there's less stigma attached towards coming forward but it's a common enough occurance that we should be collectively ashamed as a society that it still goes on.

Yes, refer to the previous link. Educating yourself starts with reading.

You didn't link anything and I already know those stats are bogus stats already discredited.

Used as propaganda by feminists to spew rape culture rhetoric

I too have been shocked at the number of women that I have met (almost all) that were raped as children by their father or brother or someone they knew - then more abuse after, perhaps due to mental disability or low self-esteem or buying into that mindset - and the people studying this are saying it is an epidemic now.

OK, so the 1 in 5 is what we know about but 90% are unreported?

Do the math. Those numbers are impossible. If you are assuming that 1 in 5 women are raped, but they are only the ones who report the rape, but there is another pool of over 90% of rapes are unreported.

Let's say you have 100 women in your population. 1 in 5 are raped, so 20 of them, but those are only the ones who admit to being raped. 90% of rapes are never reported. Let's just assume that 20 is the 10% that are reported. In order to make your 90% number work with that, you would need a total population of 200 women, twice as many as the 100 we start with.

So, you're now saying that not only is rape that prevalent, but women are raped multiple times? But if you have at least 20 women reporting, why aren't they reporting the multiple rapes instead of just reporting they were raped? Or how does anyone know to count that they might have been raped more than once to get your 90% number?

Your math is flawed because you don't have the true numbers.

Because logic isn't involved in modern feminists arguments

The true number and horrible reality lies within the posts of the women on this thread.

The same could be said for you but for a different reason.
