Not to mention those statistics are just fake. Also I didn't realize there were only three colleges in the US.

plus taking the numbers from just three collages, averaging them together and calling it proof...  These are the strongest of shennanigans   
getting the hell out of dodge before feminists or anti feminists devour my soul

the essence of the message is not the number of rapes, it's about a post being banned because they do not meet community standards... well whose ******* community? they're questioning a highly doubtful statistic, why is that so ******* wrong? and if we stop questioning then we are doomed to a ******* life of conformism

50 percent, right? still not close to 1 in 4
#468 to #27 - jjholt (06/14/2013) [-]
Relax guys, I'm not agreeing with the feminists here. 1 out of 4 is obviously a way over exaggerated statistic. But I'm just saying 1 in 3,700 is also skewed due to non-reports.

Then how in the ever frozen hell do feminists know the "true" statistics, they would have to use the same statistics or............. lie

And not all reported rapes are rape.

In that same sense, you can't say "1 in 4 women get raped before they finish college". That's also assuming that the number of REPORTED accounts of rape to the number of women is truly 1 in 4.

For all we know, it's 2 in 4, or 3 in 4, or even all women getting raped before they finish college. After all, not all cases of rape are reported.

Truth is, whatever statistic we draw our population upon always have a nonresponse sort of bias to them. Regardless, considering all factors, the actual statistics we get should be as true as we possible can get them.

If feminists say "well my friend was raped by she didn't report it", then there's also a bias towards the fact that she could have been lying or exageratting.

TL;DR: statistics about our population are most true when they are driven on legitimately acknowledged observations, therefore the statistics we actually draw from research and surveys are the most true.

You are so right. Obviously 1 in 4 women getting raped is 100% true fact.
#260 to #27 - anon (06/13/2013) [-]
then they deserve to feel completely used then. if they dont report a rape, might as well call it consensual.
#215 to #27 - anon (06/13/2013) [-]
ya but its not 1 in 4, and besides anything can be considered rape nowadays, just a man casually speaking to a woman can be considered assault or harassment. Those retards would call anything rape
#201 to #27 - anon (06/13/2013) [-]
Fair. Then where would these statistics of 1 in 4 coming from, if not from the same metrics of data? The ones where they aren't "all reported".
#148 to #27 - anon (06/13/2013) [-]
Even if only one in twenty rapes is reported then still only 1 in 94 women are raped. Not condoning this, but the 1 in 4 seems extremely unlikely to the point of ******** . For the 1 in 4 to be correct that would mean only one out of every 450 women that get raped report it.

Seems like a stretch to me.

sorry but i have to point out the joke is that its no way near the reported "1 in 4" are raped. unless you think there have been thousands and thousands of unreported rapes in these 3 schools.
User avatar #76 to #27 - bothemastaofall (06/13/2013) [-]
Yes. People numbering enough to equate 1/4 women didn't report their rape.
User avatar #35 to #27 - mads (06/13/2013) [-]
And not all reported cases are true
#41 to #35 - anon (06/13/2013) [-]
and his statistic is about college rape.

The 1 in 4 women is before they finish college not IN college (i.e. the statistic that op provided can't be used to draw conclusion on the assertion that 1 in 4 women will be raped before she is 22-26 years old )
#220 to #41 - anon (06/13/2013) [-]
What the **** ? How are people thumbing him down? This is exactly what is meant by "before they finish college". When you're ******* born you haven't finished college yet. You don't need to start to to have not finished it.

multiply each of the numbers, lets say by 8 times, to get a number for a woman getting her doctorate's chances of being raped during her college years. I think you'll find that number is incredibly far from 1 in 4, especially if you take into account shifting population from people leaving/arriving at the colleges each year.

you don't really need maths to know its ******** though,
User avatar #130 to #124 - teranin (06/13/2013) [-]
Yeah but the nice thing about math is it's Boolean nature, numbers are either true or untrue and as such are an excellent way of dismantling ******** .
