I was pointing out that she specified cis men, not all men. I'm just wondering if she actually means what your saying you think she means.

As far as i can guess the problem is she specifically said cis men couldn't and wouldn't be able to understand the fear she feels.

Right but can you really argue that? I mean it's no doubt that the fear of rape isn't engraved into the male psyche like it is for women. This is partly because such a high percentage of women are sexually assaulted within their lifetime.

Well yea, women are more at risk. Still, i don't really like how they mashed attempted and completed rapes together to make the number higher, and they don't define what attempted or completed mean. If you look at how they got their stats at the bottom they admit that sexual violence is extremely hard to measure and that their primary source (ncvs) estimates their crime stats (to include how much crime they think isn't reported to the police). Also, most of the stats of your source are pretty old, the 1 in 6 women one is from 1998. RAINN's stats on rape come from a CDC survey, and the CDC is known for having misleading stats.

Yeah that's fair enough and I appreciate you taking the time to do the research. I took a second glance at the source myself and found that the study was actually conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice. You can see for yourself through this link www.911rape.org/facts-quotes/statistics . They also define rape as "forced intercourse" within this study. Albeit, these facts are slightly outdated and luckily, the number of sexual assault's in the U.S. has dropped about 75% since this study. However, it is important to not that another more recent study conducted again by the DOJ found that 90% of sexual assaults are targeted at women.

I'm really just trying to express to everyone here what this women was actually trying to say. We need to keep an open mind and understand that this women in particular comes from a place where there are sexual assaults everyday and they fear they may be next. Yes, a refugee may want to start a fight with you and you may even get beat up in the process, but imagine being beat up and then being raped. It would be an even scarier world to live in.

says page is not found. also, what exactly constituted as sexaul assault in that study? physical sexual assault or was verbal sexual assault added as well?
#113 - peterisbest (12/02/2016) [-]
My bad, just delete the period at the end of the link. As you'll see on that page, it states, "Victims of attempted or completed rape". I mean honestly, you can't argue that women aren't more at risk of being raped. I know two close lady friends that have both been the victims because of it. Talk to any girl, even you mom or sister, and they'll tell you the same thing. Being a women automatically puts you into a passive, and thus threatened, state of mind when it comes to some men. I'm an anti-feminist, but the facts still remain.

Men are objects of desire also
Just a different kind of desire, a more mundane "do the thing no I dont care if youre at risk" desire

But no less objectified

He never said "no man" - but it´s common knowledge that getting raped in the streets is far more common for women then it is for men.

Look, I'm not saying no man has been sexually assaulted, I mean shit even I have been, but the point is that women are the objects of desire in society. The fact is, 1 in 6 women are sexually assaulted in their life-times versus 1 in 33 men being sexually assaulted www.rainn.org/statistics/victims-sexual-violence. What makes it worse is that the average female, due to their body structure, are defenseless when compared to the average male which makes it all the more easy to become a victim. Disagree all you want the the facts remain, you may not like the truth but women can and will be sexually assaulted while you most likely won't be in your lifetime.
