The first survey examining sexual violence by male UK students has shone a light on misogyny at universities, with scores admitting to rape, sexual assault and other forcible acts.
Of the 554 male students surveyed, 63 reported that they had committed 251 sexual assaults, rapes and other coercive and unwanted incidents in the past two years, according to researchers at the University of Kent.
Sigh. Motte and bailey. The wider definition includes sexual aggression, unwanted sexual contact. So, propositions that are not well taken. This is then used to equate with rape. When questioned everyone would say “No, it’s rape plus sexual aggression” but they’ll not correct those who say “rape”.
The finding ends up as 20% of women at British universities get raped. Which is the American result and so that’s right then, isn’t it?
This hitting that rather firm barrier that if going to uni led to a one in 5 chance of being raped then parents wouldn’t be sending their daughters, would they? One in five getting an unwanted pass though…..
