When Lara Stemple, a researcher at UCLA looked at the latest National Crime Victimization Survey, she was shocked to see that men experienced rape and sexual assault almost as frequently as women, and that women were often the perpetrators. Once the definition of rape was expanded to include more than just penetration, it became clear that men and women were equally likely to be raped, and more importantly, equally likely to be rapists. Researchers from the University of Missouri got the same results, finding that “43% of high school boys and young college men reported they had an unwanted sexual experience and of those, 95% said a female acquaintance was the aggressor.”The difference, of course, is that while men may regret being sexually assaulted by a sub-par woman, they don't press charges, they just expect to be mocked by their friends. And rightly so.
Sexual assault on college campuses and how that is handled has been all over the news lately, with even the President taking time to address the issue. But almost without exception, all the cases given as examples involve women as victims and men as perpetrators. Yet the survey and the confirmation from independent researchers indicates that men are often the victims and women the perpetrators.
Like those 43 percent of young men, I am a victim of rape by a female aggressor. Do try to keep that in mind before you attempt to criticize me for anything. It should be interesting to see how the women who elevate rape victims to secular sainthoood will twist-and-shout to distinguish female-rape from rape-rape.
Why do these female rapists need to be educated? It seems to me they need to be jailed.
