The majority of responses to this are just sickening!!!!
Ive worked with womens refuges that offer counseling to victims of rape and many if not most do go unreported.
Im not sure if the graph represents America or the world, if it represents America it may be a bit exaggerated if it represents the world it is
I say exaggerated but not by much.
In many non western countries rape isnt reported due to either the stigma, police corruption, not being able to identify attackers or even in some
cases the women themselves being charged with crimes.
In western countries there are many more sexual assualts than are reported.
Prostitutes working over a year can expect to be raped 3 times as a minimum, not just guys not paying but actually being raped, they generally arent
reported due to the fact its so hard to get a conviction once its known they are sex workers.
Assualts against non pros that go unreported are also disgustingly high and are not reported mainly because the victim knows the perpetrator and is
either scared or "unbelievably" doesnt want them to go to jail or get in trouble. Brothers, Fathers other family or family friends and employers are
the main offenders.
Another HUGE factor of why so many are not reported is even when a report is initially wanted to be made the victims are warned that if it does go to
a court their entire sexual history is going to be paraded before a room of strangers and become a matter of public record, can you imagine how
embarrassing it would be not only to have everyone thinking of you as a victim and feeling sorry for you but to have everyone including your parents
know how many men youve slept with, if youve had anal sex, 3somes etc etc
Many women when they find out this will be asked by the prosecution pull out and retract any charges.
Rape isnt just boogey men in alleys and by far the highest number of rapes are done by Boyfriends and Husbands. Doesnt matter if its a GF, Wife,
colleague, family friend, or sickeningly family member if 1 party says no even halfway through, even if you only need 10 seconds to finish as soon as
someone says no and you keep going your a rapist full stop!!!!!!!!
The figures are accurate or close enough that it makes no difference
EDIT: those using these figures as a justification for guns, sorry but thats just BS. Boogey men type rapists dont announce their intentions and by
the time you know whats happening you have no chance to get a gun. In other cases where you know the attacker you normally dont have any reason to
The best defence is to learn close range self defence techniques and vulnerable points. Eyes, throat, groin
Im Male and not a feminist BTW
