I've heard stories about the University of Cincinnati. And these stories corroborate this statistic of 1 in 4. The RA's are trained on how to help rape victims.

I'd like to point out that rape has been confirmed.

Bigfoot has not.

(But when they discover bigfoot, you should tell me.)

Rape culture isn't ******** . Most of these "feminists" are hated by actually feminists because they hurt all civil causes. Rape culture isn't just about rape, it's about how people (men and women) continue to make bodies objects and possessions and not human beings.
Bring on the red thumbs.

It says 1/4 women will be raped by the time they finish college, not 1/4 women will be raped while in college. I'm not saying their study wasn't skewed, but taking that perspective and citing only 3 college is a little silly.

just some real stats from a credible source
An estimated 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will experience a sexual assault in their lifetime {National Crime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice, 2000.} (sexual assault not rape)
According to The National Women's Study, 683,000 forcible rapes occur every year; which equals 56,916 per month; 1,871 per day; 78 per hour; and 1.3 per minute {National Crime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice, 2000.}

Actually, colleges encourage students not to report crimes. It makes the college look bad.

Now I am not saying rape doesn't happen in college, but I don't think girls getting passed out drunk at a party becoming vulnerable should be treated the same as a girl who was drugged or forced raped. Just my opinion.

People know that rape is very widely unreported, I believe it is too.

How do you know though? It isn't reported.

A lot of rapes don't actually get reported... so those statistics are probably off

A lot of reported rapes didn't actually happen... so yeah, stats are off. But not to the degree that 1 in 4 would be even remotely viable

All I gotta say is: If a women is drunk she cannot say no, she also can't say yes. That's rape. If a woman says no to your advances, move the **** on. Not that hard. No woman deserves to be raped. Or any man. Men get raped too. No woman or man "had it coming." No woman was asking to be forced upon because she was wearing something skimpy.
User avatar #33 to #26 - teranin ONLINE (06/13/2013) [-]
If the man and woman are both drunk, and the woman says yes but later decides no, why is the man the one accused of rape? think about it.

I go to Duquesne, for those of you that don't know, all these schools are literally down the street from each other. I know for a fact at Pitt those rapes happened at a Frat house. and a few of these were serial rapists...just adding to the rape culture ********

A lot of raped are not reported but a lot of reported ones are also a false accusation. Unreported ones are probably higher but the statistic is still probably not that far off
+1

Unfortunately many, if not most, people don't do their research to support their claim.
#267 - kittenslayerr (06/13/2013) [-]
But I think they're saying in their lifetime, not who was raped in college. The stats arent clear about the reported assaults- when they happened.
I agree 1 in 4 is a lot, but this does not reaally prove anything either except the amount of girls assaulted in college. 3 colleges.

Need more info OP

Statistics like this are useless anyway.

You can't say 1 in 4 women *will* be raped.

There could be an area where rape is extremely high which causes a statistical anomaly. That would completely skew the results.

Also as a sidenote, that 1 in 4 number isn't even about rape, it's about sexual harassment. Those are two completely different things.
Sexual harassment includes shouting "hey sexy" or even looking at a woman's breasts. This is not rape and pretending it is is just ******* stupid.

Yeah, but at Penn State, every girl gets raped two or three times, so that's why we got 1 in 4, and that's not including the kids.
User avatar #217 - BraindeadBuddha (06/13/2013) [-]
Obviously the number isn't that high. Still, rape occurs and is a serious issue. Also, unfortunately a lot of victims remain silent, a lot of studies find that it's actually the majority that remains silent. It's a serious issue, no matter how high or low the numbers.
