Our thanks to ctguitarguy, who I don’t think we’ve encountered before, for comments he’s posted in response to the video on our YouTube channel of my Sunday Morning Live appearance two days ago:
I don’t believe a land whale like Dawn Foster, who has to be one of the most unattractive creatures I have ever seen has been “sexually harassed”. She wishes.
Love your work Mike. Thought I would add to the discussion because the data shows it’s even worse for males than even you stated. In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control added a new category of to its definition of sexual assault and called it “being made to penetrate.” The new definition included being forced to perform intercourse without one’s consent as well as either giving or even receiving oral sex against one’s will.
This is still a narrow definition compared to the famous Campus Sexual Assault Study that alleges one in five college women will be raped, because “rape” according to their definition includes not-quite-full-blown-rapey things such as “forced kissing.”
With the new expanded definition of rape, it suddenly became clear that men were victims of female sexual assault far more than had previously been imagined:
• A 2010 CDC study revealed that men and women were being “made to penetrate” at nearly identical levels – here.
• Bureau of Justice stats from 2013 reveal that according to the FBI’s new definition of rape and sexual violence, a shocking 38% of victims were male – here.
• In 2013, a study published in the JAMA Pediatrics claimed that when “sexual violence” is defined similarly to how the famous campus study framed it—i.e., forced kissing and the like—an astounding 52% of males and 48% of females over age 18 had committed sexual violence at least once in their lives – here.
• A 2008-2009 CDC report revealed that in American juvenile facilities, more than 95% of staff members who molested incarcerated minors were females – here.
• A study going all the way back to 1988 claims that 62.7% of men had experienced “unwanted sexual intercourse” in their lives as compared to 46.3% of women – here.
