The College Rape Myth that Won’t Die

The general consensus among feminists is the UVA scandal and Lena Dunham’s lies set back the movement like, a LOT. Now, they say, when women have legitimate complaints, everyone will assume it’s just another Jackie crying wolf. This totally misses the point. We’re not dealing with two random clowns who have now sullied an otherwise pure movement. We are dealing with two perfect examples of a movement that was flushed down the toilet long ago. Lena and Jackie are not anecdotal. They are indicative of a much bigger feminist catastrophe that’s been going since 1987.

That was the year Ms. Magazine claimed 1 in 4 women will experience some form of rape during their college years. The claim should shock anyone who has lived on earth and met any human men. 25% of women are getting raped in that short period of time in that one tiny area? As Heather McDonald points out in her brilliant article The Campus Rape Myth, “No crime, much less one as serious as rape, has a victimization rate remotely approaching 20 or 25 percent, even over many years.” The worst things get is maybe a tenth of that. Public Health professor Mary Koss conducted the survey and appeared to be disappointed with the results. If rape isn’t an epidemic, the feminist movement is out of a job. So, Koss decided to take her paltry results and fluff them into a much larger figure. One way she did this was to include drunk sex.

Apparently being inebriated and saying yes means no.
