Other important notes from that article:
The majority of sexual offences in Canada are of a
less severe nature. Victimization data indicate that
most sexual assaults involved unwanted sexual
touching (81%) rather than more severe sexual
attacks (19%). Among the incidents that came to t
he attention of police in 2007, the large majority
(86%) were level 1, the least se
rious form of sexual assault.
The 2004 GSS showed that sexual victimization ra
tes were dramatically higher among those aged 15
to 24, compared to those 55 and over. Additionally, ov
er half of the sexual assault victims reported to
police in 2007 were children and youth under the age of 18.
When asked why they did not tell the police about the
sexual assault, a majority of victims (58%) said
that they did not report the incident because it was not important enough.
Unfortunately the best I can come up with as a statistic is to extrapolate from those numbers
Anything more concrete I have would only be from police data
which just isn't what we're looking for
So what I'd suggest is 20% of that 2 in 100 yearly sexual assault are of a severe nature beyond touching
And that the yearly number should be multiplied by ~15 or so to get a lifetime rate since it drops off by age
which leaves us at 1 in 20 or so
But that has quite the error margin since it is more back of napkin stuff than anything scientific. And my assumption that I use to jump from yearly to lifetime is woefully poor.
But as far as I can tell, lifetime data in Canada is simply not available
At least for stuff that isn't based on police reports
I think that teacher's claim is quite extraordinary
@everyone we have a new Men Are Human Article!
Site has been slightly redesigned. Sorry for any hassles with it. You can't really redo a site like this offline.
Excellent article and content nonetheless.
Thanks a lot.
If you have a story or an article of your own, let me know. It can be in private, if you prefer to be anonymous. I don't mind.
I've always liked the one on our subreddit, Short and sweet, gets the message across, easy to draw,
@goodmod It is quite good, and has some recognition already. Maybe we should use it. Personally I wanted to get the female symbol involved too, but maybe we can draw it as a tail?
But without the extra arrow
Personally I'm not a fan of using the female symbol. Whereas we don't oppose *actual* rights for women (not privileges), we don't advocate for them either
The idea kinda is to bring the male and female together into an equal movement.
Well, we tend to be egalitarian, I think especially Men Are Human tends that way
the website I mean
@asparkofpyrokravte I was about to say just that, but didn't. Lol
That does entail some advocacy for women when warranted
At very least agreeing with certain things put forth by others
Absolutely. In fact, I always discribe my view as being about equally - but add that we focus on men currently because they are the ones with the problems.
I would like equality, I'm defiantly not here to be subservient to men xD
I have a book review coming up soon that will deconstruct an anti-female mra text too.
@Abbysol I wouldn't have made you a mod if this was about subservience. XD
you where a fool for giving power to waman! now my goal to take over the world is one step closer! xD
I'm sure most people would just call me token women to that, lol
The logo we have is simpler and on point
