Although I see your point, There is the fact that many women do not report rape. Rape victims fear a trial, they feel humiliated having to explain everything that happened, having to relive every humiliating second of the most helpless she has ever felt in her life.  So some would rather just try to forget.The statistics you chose are  only three colleges in a country filled with to the brim with them.  Also, you have the right to not be persecuted in the law. Private companies like facebook act in the public's interest. The public interest, unfortunately for you, is that rape culture does exist, and its an awful thing that must be stopped. And, you forgot, (as well as I , but I'm breaking it deliberately) the number one rule of the internet.   
   
Never post unpopular opinions. Especially on sites like facebook, where girls and women of all ages can see this.   
   
I respect your opinion, I respect your right to have an opinion, but I think you're wrong.

The main thing about society and rape that irks me (besides rape itself of course, because that is entirely horrendous) is that if an underaged girl is raped and gets pregnant from that rape, the pregnant underaged rape victim is tormented by people in her town and called a whore even when her much older rapist is in jail for serial child molestation/rape. And the people know how she got pregnant because that is a pretty big news topic for towns but they still graffiti the girl's houses and spit on them for something they had no control over. This happens mostly in the parts of the country where they are pro-life, then they go and punish the young victims for following what they've been told all their lives and keeping the babies. Society irks me a lot sometimes.

Let us say 95% don't report it. That means the actual number is 20 times what is show above. Guess what: that is still a far cry from 1/4. The number is higher than it should be yes. Any number is too high for a thing like rape unless that number is 0. It isn't about rape culture, it is about limiting what people can say because one group doesn't like it. That picture above doesn't even show anything offending. Why should it not be allowed on facebook?


Rule #1 is that you do not talk about /b/.

You make fair points. I'll give you that. And yeah, in the end, it's just bad things about bad things.
