Well this is absolute bullshit to the highest degree. Completely ignoring statistics much. SMH!!! Obviously not all men are rapists, but a good 98% of rapists are men.
99% OF PEOPLE WHO RAPE ARE MEN (Greenfeld, L. A. Sex Offenses and Offenders: An Analysis of Data on Rape and Sexual Assault, Washington, D. C.: U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics), (Excerpt from page 1).
no no no
This is not okay.
"A good 98% of rapists are men" this isn’t right. Even if the ‘statistics’ say so (which they wouldn’t, because then they’re basically saying men are 100% rapists; the government can’t say something is 100% or they could get sued so they put it down a percentage or two so they wont get in trouble), it’s still, it’s not.. no.
I’m not very good at wording my arguments, but you’re criticizing a gender for something that they shouldn’t be criticized for.
It’s like saying “all feminists are crazy” or “all vegans will force their pets to eat a vegan diet” or whatever, or even saying “a majority of feminists are crazy” is still ridiculous.
This is why people often fight about things. WOMEN do rape as well, it does happen and it’s often ignored because people are just focused on the men from silly posts like these.
I’m so sick of people “defending” women, but not men. I don’t care if the “majority of the gender” does something or not, it’s not nice to target a specific gender for something, especially something like this.
I completely agree with the picture, Men do not rape people, rapists rape people.
That includes men and women and everything inbetween.
Thank you and have a good night. (Sorry for tagging fandoms, but this point needs to get across because I am just so sick of it. And I haven’t got that many followers.)
I’m pretty sure nobody knows how those statistics were actually collected.
Spoiler alert: the rapes were *reported*
So only 2% of female rapists are reported, convicted and recorded within this particular statistic.
There’s a thing about men, it isn’t socially acceptable if we report rape. Woman-on-woman rape actually suffers the same stigma, too.
It’s also not as easy to prove a blackmail-based rape ever occurred and it’s almost impossible to keep the investigation covert. It happened to me, and I was specifically told there’s no point in reporting it by the police.
Call me crazy, but I’d say female rapists are more like 8%-10%. If you’re still convinced 98% of rapists are men, maybe 98 men should prove you right.
