Our thanks to Nicholas for the following email, copied in full with his permission. It was of course predictable that in an article with feminist lies, Laura Bates – twice a “Lying Feminist of the Month” award winner, and Guardian contributor – would seek to exploit Ms Topping’s lies for her own ends.
Sadly, I write to express my displeasure at reading the headline “Almost all young women in the UK have been sexually harassed, survey finds” (which I originally found on RT.com).
Apparently, 97% of women aged 18-24 had been sexually harassed, according to the “professional journalists” at Teh Grauniad. No links are given to the research they apparently cite.
I’m always wary of such unbelievable statistics, so I dug into it. It comes from YouGov.co.uk, and I found their article here: https://yougov.co.uk/topics/relationships/articles-reports/2021/03/08/eurotrack-two-thirds-women-sweden-and-half-britain
The article DOES NOT claim anything of the sort, and luckily they included their source document as a link at the end, found ere: https://docs.cdn.yougov.com/qepiqi9xaf/YouGov%20Sexual%20harassment.pdf
… which only mentions 97% twice in the context of UK women – 1) IF a man you didn’t know were to expose his genitalia to you, would you consider that inappropriate? 97% YES, and 2) IF a man were to try to take a picture up your skirt, would you consider that inappropriate? 97% YES.
