These stats are from a 2 college survey, and a very questionable one at that. The evidence shows the number is somewhere between 1/5 and 1/40, and that includes questionable reports of borderline date rape cases where many times there are some gray areas. I'm not defending anyone's actions here, but these numbers are often inflated for someone's agenda. 1 in 3 girls? 1 in 5 boys? Sorry, no way is that close to reality. Pick 10 of your closest friends and you're unlikely to find 1 that's been sexually abused. This is just utter fricking hysterical nonsense. I don't want to down play true criminals and their victims of these situations, but c'mon, use your head and sniff the BS here. If I actually thought that number was true, I wouldn't allow my daughter, or my son for that matter attend college. Absoulte BS.


Speaking of gray areas, it's no coincidence that the looser the definition of the term sexual assault, the higher the incidence. Some "sexual assaults" do not involve criminal acts and, as the National Institute of Justice states concerning its own study (which was based on two anonymous low-response online surveys for which participants received $10 gift cards from Amazon):

"The most commonly reported response — offered by more than half the students — was that they did not think the incident was serious enough to report. More than 35 percent said they did not report the incident because they were unclear as to whether a crime was committed or that harm was intended."

The online survey also asked participants about "events that you think (but are not certain) happened."

That is the source from which we get the fabled "one in five" meme.

>>>I don't want to down play true criminals and their victims…

Nor do I. That's one reason I object to the weasel wording, sloppy statistics, and obviously inflated numbers.

>>>…Use your head and sniff the BS here.

Some people like that particular odor.
