i don't buy these numbers at all.

here's a little something from the bureau of justice statistics on crime rates. seems like TOTAL violent crime rates fall around 470 per 100,000. this includes rape, assault, murder, and robbery. rape accounts for about 35 of the 470.

this study simply couldn't refer to 20% raped. even if you added all "sexual assault" (something as tame as a smack on the ass, or groping. pretty much all of which is unreported), it would still be far fetched.

Quit bringing facts into play Bob. This thread has no place for real, tangible numbers. It needs to keep its steam based on the obscure sampled percentages. Men are bad and to blame and we're all mostly guilty, geez why can't you understand that?

Now can we discuss the root cause of such a high level of violence, and potential means of countering it?

the Billmeister


Try an increasingly psychopathic society which also believes it should have what it wants when it wants.
Try a diet of mainly violent video games
Try (this certainly goes for UK) all the 'harmless' girly magazines on display which portray women as meat.
Try a change in society's norms - it's OK to drop your pants on a whim. Just look at problem pages and the responses to young people who post that they don't feel ready. They are so often accused of being dysfunctional!
There was a programme on UK TV last night - 'The joy of teenage sex'. 'Nuff said.
Try females themselves who (in the UK anyway) don't see a problem with falling around the streets half dressed and drunk on a Saturday night.

Heuston we have a problem.


Look at you. Wow. Your as bad as a global warmist. You latch onto this to support initiatives that you support anyway and try to claim a faux moral justification. Really sickening and illustrates how much anti-male hatred exists in the west. And you also come across as a total misogynist at the end. Because even though the system is messed up, they are STILL HUMAN BEINGS TOO! You sound like a Ferengi.

Rape does happen. It is a horrible thing. But it doesn't happen to just women. And I find it amusing that the same women who cry they where raped, and the same men who scream OMG INJUSTICE HAS HAPPENED! Still laugh and think prison rape is "justice" and "funny".

And all the white knights who jump to defend gal's at the drop of the hat come out with outlandish justifications whenever a little boy was raped by a grown woman. Saying "he should be lucky". So by that token you find rape of girls and women as a bad thing because they are nothing more then property?

I doubt it matters to many, but most men who rape women, where themselves raped as little boy's by grown women. And a lot of guy's who are promiscuous had sex way to early. seriously gal's, you know the guy's in your life who sleep around. Casually ask them when their first time was. All my friends(friends that are male) that are promiscuous have in common is they had sex at a way young age(8-11).

My guess is it has to do with the persons neurological type. A more sociopath to normal person would become more prone to being promiscuous, a psychopath could easily become a rapist, an empath.. Probably drive them to suicide(pure hypothesis).

And sometimes there is a grey area between consent and non-consent. And that grey area is just as painful, but it is not the same thing. But it is not rape and shouldn't be treated as rape. Nor should the person be belittled, they should be helped. Society ought to be more understanding.










You have to understand that feminist's are trying to eventually outlaw heterosexuality(technically all heterosexual sex is rape if you follow a strict interpretation of the US Constitution[the interpretation that say's you don't have the ability to surrender or waive your rights(As sex leads to children, children leads to Child Support, child support is a form of peonage and violates the 13 Amendment. Since Child Support is almost unanimously forced onto men[no women in jail for not paying only men, and women are often not required to pay it at all] it is a system of enslaving men. As such men cannot consent to becoming slaves/peons, cannot consent to giving up the right's as describe in the 13th Amendment, thus cannot give consent to sex and every woman who engages in heterosexual sex is a rapist)]. But that is a radical interpretation).

Are you kidding me? If rape, in this case, is defined as penetration - this cannot be true. The survey is very inaccurate and clearly biased.


The FBI changed the meaning of the legal term "Rape".

I'm not sure. If we assume that women and men are 50/50 population wise, and say the number of women raped is 20%... then at the very most 20% of men would be rapists. Rapists are generally repeat offenders though so the actual % of men that rape/have raped is probably WAY lower than 20%. Assuming that a woman is raped by only one person that is.

Your forgetting about lesbian rapist's(yeah it happens a lot more then Feminist's will admit, it is actually causing a split between feminist's and lesbians to a certain degree).

seriously. even if you added up every case of inappropriate groping as full blown rape, you would barely get these numbers.

men aren't as sexually perverse as we're made out to be. i've never cheated on any girl, but i've had girls cheat on me before. i've never made a sexual move towards a girl when she wasn't literally asking for it, but girls have done that to me. i don't use my body to get things, or lead people on for attention, though that seems to be standard for girls nowadays. i haven't lied about how many people i've been with, but two girls i know have. i've had a girl literally beg me to rape her. she wanted to be forced down, smacked around, and choked.

i don't understand where the myth of males being perverted, and girls being perfect angels came from, but it has caused a lot of damage in the world.

Wow. Just wow. I came out of stasis for this thread. I guess it shouldn't shock and appall me as much as it has, that some on this thread consider the statistics anything from a flat out lie to the old chestnut of a 'war on men from those durned feminazis' (I particularly enjoyed the creative line of thought that connected invisible dots from sex to child support...bravo!) Can often tell who's had unhealthy relationships...

Shocked and appalled that most of the women on this thread are outing themselves as victims of rape, and talking about the rapes of their friends and family members...yet they are either silenced or ignored, for the most part.

Really...what would it take for the men to really *get* what women are saying? Do you really think that we're talking out of our a***s? Looking for attention? Pretty shallow view of women. Then you wonder why we all go off in a huddle and get angry about things. Hmmmmm.

I worked the crisis lines for a while. I am a female. I believe the number is higher than 20%...way higher. I applaud Billmeister for bringing this up in an obviously male dominated forum and attempted to start a constructive dialogue. Men like you...and several others...really give me hope. Talk to other men, because many obviously disregard women.

Hey - how's this for the conspiracy theorists? D'ya think that the media over-sexualization of women and glorification of violence has anything to do with diversionary tactics? Kinda like sports? Keep your brains all distracted with nonsense and talking about imaginary 'gender wars'?

Gah....women who have shared: you are so brave to do this in shark infested waters. I wish you healing, peace and justice.

Namaste!

Don't know what to think on this thread, but the adage of "why do they put in the joke ones, with the real ones" comes to mind, not saying the number is exaggerated just that this whole thing is leaving out way more then it's putting in.

If anything it misconstrues the real cases of rape, and really It's kind of hard to believe females when they seem to...Well lets say not look for such situation, but at the very least they seem to gravitate toward such situations and dudes. If anything actions speaks louder then words and that in itself say's more then any statistic can.

But the situations are limitless and so to would be the differences were rape would occur, but one thing seems to be true and that is that it is done by those they have a trust in, more so then the typical stalking and preying rape cases. And if that is so then it seems more along the lines of your not so typical relationship problems were people are not on the same page...at all....Were as the stalking and preying/drugging seems to be a pretty clear cut definition of rape in most peoples books. Just to name a few situations but probably the most common.


But I will give it the benefit of the doubt and believe that there are a lot of cases of rape going on, which knowing some dudes that I have known and seen. I can believe that to some extent, but if anything they and the females they get with seem to deserve eachother for at the very least they seem to gravitate toward eachother.

Also what the f*** is up with all you females saying "oh we keep silent about it, so the number is likely way more" forget that # if you got raped and are silent then not only are you inhibiting this behavior but your in a way perpetrating it with your silence. And if it is real then you best make some noise about it, because all in all I have seen more joke ones and manipulative goings on then the real deals......And its kind of hard to take somebody serious when they cry wolf all the time, because one of these days it will be real and no one will believe you.

Lets just say i am cynical on some of these numbers, but whatever...I will believe them till they prove themselves otherwise that is.

Oh and from the link.



An estimated one in 71 men has been raped at some point in their lives, the study finds.

Almost 53% of male victims experienced some form of intimate partner violence for the first time before the age of 25. Some 25% of male rape victims were first raped when they were 10 years old or younger, the findings show.

That seems to be a lot of males raped, and I dont think they are counting prison. If anything I think that to is exaggerated a bit...Or at the very least I know of no dudes who has been raped...Not saying it does not happened, just that something is not right with this poll.

Right, because people don't lie. Read through all of them, funny how one of those great gals in the same page number engages in anti-male chauvinism, then sexual harassment type joke aimed at men, then a sob story that can't be proven(then again feminists never do anything for "dramatic effect"/sarcasm). And even the the sob story she had to add a super male hating element that fits in with Radical Feminist 70's rhetoric.

The gender war isn't "imaginary", it is a very real war and it is very far from being over(just because us guy's are fighting back for the first time in 40 years you can't throw up your arms and declare it over in order to keep your privilege and the female supremacist system intact).

Your own sexist shaming language proves how real the gender war is. Look at this thread and the sheer level of hatred and chauvinism aimed at males. Heck in day to day life(even at a private school) gal's routinely engage in "women are superior" rhetoric, and other chauvinistic hateful things.

Look how you ignored everything except the statements that would allow you to say things a radical, male hating feminist would want to say regardless.

P.S
Who watches the over sexualized Media?
Women. Guy's don't watch TV as much anymore. But I am guessing your talking about adult entertainment etc.

Which goes to show your real angle. Only interested in oppressing and controlling men(via control of male sexuality). No women's rights movement ever fought for the right to just be a human being. Every single one fought for the right to control both male sexuality and the fruits of male labor.

At this point anti-male chauvinist's need solid data or you won't be taken seriously. Because EVERY SINGLE feminist statistic has proven to be fraudulent for "dramatic effect".

Take the pervasive 1/3 statistic. Did you know that the researcher admitted she made it up to increase her departments federal funding? She resigned a year ahead of review because the University would of been legally responsible to turn her over to the authorities for Felony fraud.

Why didn't you tell them to go to the cops? It is easy to make these claims online with nothing to back them up. Even if it is true, it just means that your attracted to gal's who have emotional problems(as being raped would mess some one up).

It is like a person that for some reason veers towards abusive people. They would think everyone is abusive.

See what i mean about male haters being attracted to this? It is like white supremacists flying to a topic about welfare or inner city violence. This is nothing more then propaganda to justify the total elimination of human rights(first they will come for men and then they will come for women). Heck in Australia they are working on laws so men accused of rape won't be entitled to a Jury trial. instead they want to use "Special Tribunals".

And female supremacist's(Feminist;s and Traditionalist's) go along with it because they view males as nothing more then beasts of burden and see nothing wrong with our enslavement. Truly sickening times.

I think it's funny that the men in this thread don't seem to buy it, while the women in this thread think the numbers are higher. I'll tel you what, I have spent enough time taking to my female friends and to know it's most likely under reported. I have had to call 911 on at least one occasion when my neighbor in the apartments I was living at at the time was being raped. I know another person who was raped on 3 different by 3 different men occasions as a teenager due to the types of people her father kept as friends. Another friend of mine raised the child of her rapist spending his entire childhood trying to keep the secret from her. There are other stories I won't even mention here because I am sworn to secrecy even though this is an anonymous website.

How do you know they didn't go to the cops? And honestly after sitting by my neighbors side during the rape kit and police interrogation, I can honestly understand why no woman would ever go to the police.

Hence why no one believes you. And if they did go to the cops it would show up in the statistics. The reason why I don't believe this is because this rhetoric will be readily used to further dehumanize me, and disenfranchise me because of my gender. The laws are in place to deal with rape crimes, want a cookie?

Look at the feminist movement of the 60's and 70's. One giant big arse lie. Women("white") as a collective whole lied about being "oppressed", when no group has been more privileged then white women in human history!

And most of the people making these claims demand pity in one breathe and then engage in male hating rhetoric in the next. No. I believe all these claims like a rational person would of believed all the claims from the Women's Klu Klux Klan in the early 1900's about all those black rapist's.

Once people develop a bigoted mentality towards a group based upon either gender, race, religion, or even sexual orientation they will lie through their teeth, suspend reality to justify their hate rhetoric. I have seen this happen many times before in the many history books I have read. I will not allow this to happen to me.

Because that is what all this chauvinism is leading up to.

Wow sucks to be Australian and a male then. And here I thought it was all fun out on the bush and wearing cool hats and going around saying..."That ain't a knife mate, this is a knife"...Note to self stay away from Australian women if ever in Australia to avoid the "Special Tribunals" .

There we go problem solved.

Super duper secret no talking of rape pact...OK, that sure as hell makes sense, such stories have a few holes in them, and it does makes one questions things. That is to say! a few holes like Swiss cheese has a few holes in it.

I hate to break it to you, the guy's and gals who are rapist's are probably psychopaths. Psychopaths are Psychopaths because they lack a conscience.

P.S
Most child rape/sexual molestation is done by women. In 80% of the time it is reported to the Police they REFUSE to take action.

But then again when did facts get in the way of a hate rant?
