Are Sexual Assaults on the rise in University’s? If you were to listen to the special interests groups then it’s a resounding yes. But do the facts stand up to this meme? Well according to nearly all the leading advocacy groups 1-4 college women will be assaulted in their university careers. Damn! That sounds bad. Why would women continue to go to schools where this happens?
One of the leading reports often sighted is the BoJ report “The Sexual Victimization of College Women”. Yet notice how the research was conducted.
Exhibit 3 reports the extent of rape found in the NCWSV study. As shown, 2.8 percent of the sample had experienced either a completed rape (1.7 percent) or an attempted rape incident (1.1 percent). The victimization rate was 27.7 rapes per 1,000 female students.
Some scholars believe that the failure of women to define a victimization as a rape calls into question whether researchers have truly measured the crime of rape. Others suggest, however, that the true prevalence of rape is best measured by carefully worded questions on victimization surveys, such as NCWSV.
Women may not define a victimization as a rape for many reasons (such as embarrassment, not clearly understanding the legal definition of the term, or not wanting to define someone they know who victimized them as a rapist) or because others blame them for their sexual assault.
Are they suggesting women too dumb to know what rape is?
You see folks it’s not about actual crime but how questions are worded.
But here’s a concept. What if we made schools a place for learning and not social experimentation. What if rules were enforced and males and females had separated dorms and strict rules on being in the other’s dorm rooms. Obviously if we believe the latest studies women are at risk among men in college. So, why do we continue to allow them to live with (COED rooms and COED floors) and around men?
When actual sexual assault is encountered like a real rape conviction then the student ( s ) should be expelled and never allowed to return. Of course that is after a prison sentence. You see actual sexual assault is a crime.
College today is ranked by students more for the party’s than academics. The left has encouraged this exact behavior for decades now. Free love folks, it has a price. Drunkenness has a price. Civilized people don’t behave as many college student today act. Not that they are alone in this. American society in general continues to throw off the rules of civilized society and it shows everywhere.
Of course it’s all in the wording and definition of sexual assault.
Men here this, if you plan on college remember you are the enemy and will be targeted. They will set you up with an atmosphere that promotes sexual misconduct and then attack you. Only you (men) are capable of being the responsible one in a sexual encounter. Well unless your on the football team or the professor.
The Obama administration has gotten into the act by creating a Task Force to protect Students from sexual assault. How? Well it’s a task force damn it. That’s how.
Obama planned to sign a presidential memorandum Wednesday creating a task force to protect students from sexual assault, with a new White House report declaring that no one in America is more at risk of being raped or assaulted than college women. The report, “Rape and Sexual Assault: A Renewed Call to Action,” says that 1 in 5 women have been sexually assaulted at college but that only 12 percent of student victims report the assault.
I don’t support rape which is a crime that deserves severe consequences or men acting as asses. In fact I think social manners need to be re-introduced to our country. It’s been the radical feminist (among other leftist groups) and their enablers that have created much of the environment we see today that promotes rude and dangerous behavior. Young men have no idea how to act.
I don’t believe these studies, yet, I do see a problem in colleges and university’s where students are required to study little and party lots. Have you taken a college course lately? They are not very difficult (ok maybe engineering courses are a bit tougher). I believe this is by design.
