  •  This survey rings true to me (7+ / 0-)

    that a small percentage of men commit the overwhelming majority of rapes.  I once unknowingly worked with a guy who was later convicted of several rapes.

    His attitude towards women, and what he said, was so hateful that you knew he was off kilter, way past the average half-educated, once-divorced redneck worker's antagonism towards women that was more typical in the warehouse.

    I'd like to think that rapists are distinctly evil people, not just teenagers who got carried away.

    If so, the educational efforts this diary discusses should be tuned more to educating typical boys and men to prevent rapes by the deviants among us.

    It sounds like there were a bunch of kids at the Stubenville party, any one of whom could have prevented those rapes.

    •  It is the morality or lack thereof (1+ / 0-)

      that I think needs teaching/correcting in our society. As you point out it sounds like there were any number of people that could have put a stop to the evenings events had they the fortitude of their beliefs in proper behavior to do so.
