One In Three Men Would Rape If They Could Get Away With It



I've certainly nagged (and begged!) several women into having sex with me, but force??? RAPE??? Jesus!

1. You might want to view

"The Bro Code," a documentary that addresses this issue on a larger scale.

4. That can't be right

If that were true, the number of rape victims would have to be higher than one in six (which is already too many). Just statistically, it doesn't pass the smell test. I seem to remember a survey of college guys that put the stat at one in six men. While horrific, that's more believable.

5. That is very sad, if true. Good reason for tough law enforcement and better treatment of victims.

6. A small .25 cal wouldn't add much weight to the purse.

9. To survey 72

 

college kids, assume they all answered truthfully, and then say that 1/3 of all men would rape women based upon their responses is absolutely absurd.

10. More like an opinion piece than "research"

 


" we felt that a convenience sample of college males was a good place to start"

The Fox News-worthy headline is perhaps more harmful than helpful.

It's here: http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/pdf/10.1089/vio.2014.0022

14. The amazing thing is that any PhD would sign their name to it, much less 2

It's like saying since I said I would steal 1 million dollars if I knew beforehand I could get away with it, I must "endorse" theft.

11. Not to mention

This survey addresses potential criminal activity. Thoughts as crimes. How about : would you rob a million dollars from Jamie Dimon if you Knew you could get away, scott-free? Also a thought crime.

13. 9 guys said they would act on "“intentions to rape a woman” if they knew they could get away with it

Keep in mind those who did participate got "extra credit" for doing so regardless of their answers. When you consider two almost identical questions produced two radically different results, the best you can conclude from this study is that many (if not most) of the participants didn't even read the questions.
