An online survey of US college students has found that the majority of American male athletes admitted to “sexually coercing” or raping a female companion. The survey report titled "Sexual Coercion Practices Among Undergraduate Male Recreational Athletes, Intercollegiate Athletes, and Non-Athletes," followed up on another research study published in 1995, showing that male college athletes were more likely to commit sexual violence on women than their other male college peers. Sexually coercing meets the legal definition of rape, according to the researchers who conducted the study as cited in a Friday report by the UK-based daily Independent.

Among the “sexually coercive” behaviors, were making a partner engage in sexual activity without protection as well as using physical force or threats to commit rape. Sexual assault on campuses – and in society more generally is a serious problem that needs to be addressed.

The only surprise is that they admitted it.

Now let's get the coaches and schools that cover it all up to admit it.

It would be nice if the article explained whether the result they are publicizing was the 159 recreational athletes or the 29 intercollegiate athletes.

Here is a link to the actual survey which I had to go and locate myself as the article does not provide a link . . .
Sexual Coercion Practices Among Undergraduate Male Recreational Athletes, Intercollegiate Athletes, and Non-Athletes

You need to set up an account with sagepub ( SAGE PUBLICATIONS ) to read it.

I can sign in with my university account, however copy and pasting the information is against T&C so I suppose everyone is S.O.L. in regards to learning what was actually asked in the survey or what the methodology was.



From what I am reading through my university pass, this survey seems like a waste of time. The questions are (of course) purposely obtuse in such a manner to easily be misinterpreted by the survey taker. The wording is steeped in language which has entirely different meaning to the common public understanding.

Shame really.

Yeah, I'm not buying it!! Do you really think with all that is going on with judicial system and innocent people being locked up all the time that these athletes are going to admit this???!! Not hardly!! They are not going to come out and admit raping a woman when there is so much to lose! Mainly, their life!!

Not only that, but the ignorant person who wrote this article has the balls to call coercing RAPE?!! Give me a flipping break!

Rape is forcibly taking someone AGAINST THEIR WILL and/ OR WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT! NOT begging, pleading, using different pitches to try and get someone to have sex with you that idea is ludicrous!

So then ask yourself, what is really the hidden agenda here in damning so many young men? What freedom are we about to lose!!

It does not add up and i am quite certain there is a hidden agenda!

Here ya go!

Let me start out by saying that i am not talking about the technical definition of coercion (to "persuade (an unwilling person) to do something by using force or threats."), but the way it has been being used by feminists to define pretty much any suggestion of sexual acts without an immediate "YES!" EDIT: Blackmail is obviously rape, i am not talking about situations where someone says something like "Have sex with me or i will send your nudes to the entire office!!", i am talking about how people consider sex after pressuring for it after the initial "No" to be rape.


Perhaps its the ultra Feminists run amock!


Recently the idea has been getting popularized that if you ask someone to have sex and they say no, then proceed to say something such as "Ohh come on" and then they agree, its rape.


As the article goes on to question, who gets to decide what is coercive rape? Because if we follow the rules of the article in the OP then it as the same as saying ...A wife wants sex, the husband doesn't, the husband finally caves cause the wife is pouting so they have sex....Was this man just raped by his wife?? According to the OP article HE WAS!! This is absurd!!

At some point we need to inject some common sense into our thoughts.

So if I ask a woman "do you want to go on a date" and they say no, if I ask them again and they later agree to it did I just date rape this woman?

Here is the original published article on this survey:
More than half of university sportsmen admit to raping or sexually assaulting women, study finds

Here is another article about the survey:
54% of US college athletes admit to raping their partners – survey

There are others, but they are all carbon copies of each other, so likely shared throughout the network . . . .

Here is the original which all the others have shared or plagiarized from:
Sexual Coercion Among Athletes


And sexual coercion, which is defined as “any unwanted oral, vaginal or anal penetration as a result of verbal or physical pressure, including rape,” is not just prevalent among big-time basketball and football players. The athletes included in the study were mostly those who play recreational, not intercollegiate, sports.


So I can confirm the study does base their number of athlete violators from both the recreational and intercollegiate populations.

oh wait . . . this story is a republishing of this article:
Study: Attitudes Toward Women Key In Higher Rates of Sexual Assault By Athletes


Non-athletes were much less likely to believe in rape myths, such as that if a woman is drunk or doesn’t fight back, it isn’t rape. And non-athletes were less likely to harbor more traditional, and frequently negative, beliefs about women, such as that “Women should worry less about their rights and more about becoming good wives and mothers.”

In addition, the researchers found that there was no difference between recreational and intercollegiate athletes in regard to their views toward women, belief in rape myths or sexual behavior.


The language I was talking about before is in bold above is exactly what I was referencing earlier in regards to language. If a woman is drunk she can NOT consent and therefore ALL drunk sex is considered rape. This is why I said the survey was a shame.

They draw a black and white picture of intoxicated interactions (while only holding one party accountable) as well as consider any "maintenance" relations to be rape. These are two areas which are very grey outside of certain "academic" circles.

I personally think with your "Over The Top" interest in this topic you have something to hide.....Yes?

They didn't admit rape in a traditional sense.

The liberal left has redefined rape to be something as simple as looking at a woman funny. The left has a supply side problem to create their faux outrage regarding rape culture so they had to move the bar to a ridiculous point to create the illusion of troubling statistics to remain relevant.

Don't fall for this BS.

Speaking from the perspective of someone who was a college athlete in track and field where a lot of stuff was more or less co-ed ... I call shenanigans on this. If most of the guys were rapey, then someone would have been raped over the course of the four years were all traveled together and roomed together as there was little supervision.

No one was.

I will admit to having the head trainer manhandle my buttock once as an object lesson to all the student trainers in the room as teachable moment. Perhaps that counts?

Some of the comments here illustrate precisely why there needs to be more education.

Lots of women say they were raped or sexually assaulted, lots of men jump in to say 'LIBERAL HOGWASH!' 'They don't know what they're talking about!' 'It wasn't really rape anyway!'



Meanwhile hundreds of threads exist on this forum about the horrible evils of trans-gendered women using women's bathrooms and that's the end of the fricking world. Meanwhile heaven knows how many thousands of women are being raped, and that's cause to post 'jokes' about glasses being raped.

Disgusting.

I am a woman.

This is stupid. I spent an inordinate amount of four years of my life in the company of male college athletes from a few sports. Are you saying I do not know what I am talking about?

I didn't realize it was a rule that women had to have feminine avatars. I pick and choose random ones based on my sense of humor not my sex or gender.



A sampling of others I have used.

i played college football. I never did anything remotely like this. At all. But my coach was a highly principled man who would dismiss players for drinking, so we were all exceptionally "clean".

But players who do steroids? Yeah...i can see it. And players at that level are doing steroids. I'd bet at least 70%, if im being kind.

Our culture is Roman. The "West" is Roman. We still act Roman.

To make sure we are clear, i am not a gorilla. Im a human male.

I think Rule 16 helps clarify this whole misunderstanding.
