Rape culture doesn’t exist in the United States on any significant, meaningful level.
Sorry to disappoint you.
remember when you said you didn’t think it was criminal for someone to rape a drunk woman
683,000 adult American women are forcibly raped each year. This equals 56,916 per month; 1,871 per day; 78 per hour; and 1.3 per minute. [X]
Sorry guys, because rape culture doesn’t affect this one dude means its not important at all.
"I think the thing that baffles me the most about the “1 in 4” myth that the feminist movement perpetuates is their inability to do basic math.
Like do you realize how many women that is? Do you realize how many women would have to be raped every single year to make that statistic true?
You are saying that 25% of women in the United States are raped in their lifetime. I hope you realize that this means you are saying that that number is 39,650,000 women (there are 158.6 million women in the US). There were around 75,000 rapes in 2010. Even if all of these rapes were women, it would take528 1/2 years for that number to reach your 39.6 million women.
To reach your statistic of “39.6 million women are raped,” you’d have to have a rape incidence rate of 396,500 women per year(using 100 years, a very generous estimate as the “lifetime occurrence” baseline). You realize that’s more than the UN report covering incidence rate of rape in 65 different countries, right?
You’re saying that in the US, almost 400,000 women are raped every year, more than the TOTAL of the 65 countries included in that UN report. Yeah forgive me if I’m skeptical. Jesus Christ learn basic math people. This is just ridiculous.”
So because the number of people affected by something is higher than a country’s population, it’s too high to be believable? Rather than being the REASON that movements like feminism are necessary in the first place?
