This touchy subject is one that shouldn’t be avoided. The extreme feminists have been putting out statistics saying that 1 in 5 female university students are sexually assaulted. This study is based on only 2 large public universities, and the study included questions that said “sexual battery could have included “sexual touching,” such as forced kissing or fondling. Even then, the study’s conclusion- 13.7% of freshman, sophomores, and juniors- was lower than the “1 in 5” stat (it was more like “1 in 7”).
Patriot News Daily writes that The Department of Justice conducted a new study that proved that that statistic is simply bogus. The new study found out that the actual rate of campus victimization is 6.1 in 1,000, which is not even close to the “1 in 5” stat. Furthermore, at 7.6 in 1,000 the rate of sexual assault among non-students is 1.2 times higher. The study also concluded that sexual assault rates are falling, which of course is non-existent to the angry feminists.
Obama said at the beginning of 2014 that we needed to crack down on campus rape by “changing a culture of passivity and tolerance in this country, which too often allows this type of violence to persist.” Which is actually the heart of the problem. The new wave of radical feminism has succeeded in making us believe in this “rape culture” myth, blindly claiming that our society approves of sexual assault. This gives them the ability to go out and claim that “only men can stop rape.” Many women have even claimed that they were falsely raped, which greatly messes up the impact that real rape stories should have on society. These women have pointed fingers at innocent men who get in major trouble and have their reputation completely tarnished because of these ridiculous claims.
Conservatives – doubtlessly corrupted by “white male privilege” – aren’t the only ones who think these radical feminists are insane. RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) was every bit as harsh on this idiotic special-interest group, calling the whole “rape culture” movement an “unfortunate trend.” RAINN said, “Rape is caused not by cultural factors but by the conscious decisions, of a small percentage of the community, to commit a violent crime.”
No one supports rape. It is a crime, it is severely punished, no one should get away with it or get out of prison because of it, and it shall remain that way. We want a world where there aren’t any rapes, both on high school and college campuses and anywhere else, but women have to take responsibility as well and make sure they have an escape plan in tact and are making good decisions. A good plan may include always having a friend, carrying a legal defense mechanism of some sort (ie. pepper spray), not getting wildly drunk at parties, not staying up until the early morning hours, and not walking through dark allies at midnight. But radical feminists don’t want to stop rape; they want to dramatically change the way men behave in American society. By demonizing fraternities, sports, colleges, comedians, and anyone who would dare question a rape accusation, they can open the door to their version of utopia. What that might entail is anyone’s guess, but it probably won’t be pretty.
