Over a 20-year period, asking some 2,000 men in college questions like this: “Have you ever had sexual intercourse with someone, even though they did not want to, because they were too intoxicated [on alcohol or drugs] to resist your sexual advances?”, or “Have you ever had sexual intercourse with an adult when they didn’t want to because you used physical force [twisting their arm, holding them down, etc.] if they didn’t cooperate?”
About 1 in 16 men answered “yes” to these or similar questions.
1 in sixteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen are you kidding me
if we got 1 in 16 motherfuckers admitting to raping women on college campuses and are “very forthcoming. In fact, they are eager to talk about their experience”, you better fucking believe tossing out your short skirt and staying in at night isn’t going to keep you safe.
In a survey of 11-14 year-old boys…
…aaand in a survey of college males…
…and in another…

reblogging for commentary
And these numbers are based on the guys who are WILLING to admit their sexual misconduct. How many are there that wouldn’t? (via ikuta-ameh)
I’m going to throw up.
fuck. this is not okay.
I just want to say I really love the fact people are angry about this, and understandably so.
These numbers are soul crushing.
