I just ran across this tidbit and found it fascinating..also had no idea what forum it fits in.. so here goes.

www.dailymail.co.uk...

Appearently in the United States about 90,000 women are raped each year, but more that 200,000 men are?!?!



Well that is the opposite from the mainstream narrative...

Now I'm not making any deeper conclusions to that, such as "women shouldn't be afraid of being raped", just that I can't imagaine many people know this.


It is an especially crazy stat when considering the college campus safe space trend... and the claim that one out of 4 or 5 women are raped in college.

There is no real movement to stop men from being raped in prison.. in fact it is a running joke in all forms of media.

I heard someone make a really good quote one time..

"People hear about a rapist being raped in prison and think "awesome!! Good 1 vs Evil 1! Everything is even!!!"

But in reality it is "rape 2, humanity 0..."

Here is the story if you insist on posting early.


Makes sense statistically. There are far more men incarcerated than women.

Your thread title is clickbait for stars and flags, so don't get snotty about any replies you get.

I hadn't thought of stats from prison but that does make sense. Either way, men are doing most of the raping (the title made me think men were being raped by women, but that's not typically the case)

Maybe adding something about "in prisons" would clarify.

Unless you prefer the clickbait title.

Here is the original article title.



More men are raped in US than women, figures on prison assaults reveal.

It's not OP's thread title, it's the title of the article itself.

It's from Daily Fail though so go figure.

More rapes happen in prison than outside of prison, so yes, it does make sense that more men are raped than woman (while including rapes that happen in prisons*).

* that part was left out of the articles title

I posted that because I have placed a place holder thread before and watched 2 pages pop up with people just ranting about me using a placeholder post.. which is the most common of internet hints..

Imho your reply was far more "snotty" than my placeholder..

People know prisons are in America, they just don't think about including those stats..

They are all still rapes that take place in the US..

I see, it's beat the next poster to the news.

You should have used "prison" in your thread title. That would be accurate.

Not everything has to be a competition.

Prison rape is a huge issue in the United States. Bone up on PREA.

Daily Fail clickbait.


But I agree with others, it's probably not untrue when one factors in prison rape.

Just it's yet another very misleading story from the Fail.

I swear to God the original headline didn't have the last sentence.

I need some food and coffee in me methinks

A)I don't think this is a new story

B) actually I dropped my phone after making the title and some how hit send.

The link was a courtesy after the last time that happened the thread was derailed by all the early posters.

Hello, why would you keep 16 and 17 year old boys with rapist who are adults?!?

How is the last sentence relevant??

Are men in prison not Americans, or not in America??

Are they any less raped..

I'm sorry if y'all jumped the gun and ASSUMED this meant women raping men outside of prison..

The headline absolutely doesn't say that either..

It says that more men are paper than men in the US.. which is true..

Anything else you applied to the title was you implying it, not me.

Because people don't care what happens to people in jail.. even when you can be put there for little to nothing.

A quick reading of the article suggests it not true anyway even including prison population, as it is comparing to completely different figures. An estimate of sexual assault and reported rapes.
