    Which men are the rapists. Rapists tend to do quite well at blending in, at looking innocent. That's how they manage to keep doing it.

    That being said,  I did not recommend because of the poor wording.

      That might be what you thought it meant, but that is NOT what the commenter said.

      F'ing outrageous.

        How do  you know it isn't true?  If one out of three women has been sexually assaulted, you think that's just a handful of bad apples?  All you can say is you wouldn't rape. If you're a guy, ask some of your buddies, but without telling them what you want to hear.  Many will admit to the one time, when there was an opportunity.  They'll later be sorry.  But the woman will have been raped.  

        If there is no opportunity, they won't manufacture one, but if there is?  

        if you find it f'ing outrageous, how do you think the woman feels.  

        or better, ask you female friends, who raped or tried to rape them and what were the circumstances.

          Just, fuck you, you horrible wretched person.

          Go ahead, get anyone you can to come HR this comment, but you deserve it.

          Fuck you.

          You're wrong, and you're spreading vile fucking lies.

          Fuck you.

            and neither do you. Not enough solid data either way. In any case, your opinion of her opinion doesn't justify your comment. HR'd

            At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

              There isn't enough evidence to disprove the statement that almost all men are rapists at heart and only don't rape from fear of being caught?

              Yeah.  Fuck you too.

                (and my belief, though not my knowledge, is that most men aren't under most circumstances), don't you think you might want to find words that don't undercut your point?

                Aren't you saying "Although I'm ready to use these words against you this way, trust me that I won't follow them up with actions because I'm just not that kind of a guy. I'm just saying fuck you because it's such a great way to end an argument, not because I'd ever mean anything by it."?

                Think about it.

                •  Right. (0+ / 0-)

                  Because every guy I've flipped the bird at or said 'fuck you' to was a threat of rape.

                  How pathetic, like accusing all men of being rapists at heart isn't enough, you want to play pedantic and dishonest games with generic insults?  

                  Done with speaking to you, for sure.

            Seriously, why are you reacting so strongly?

            Is there some personal issue involving this that you are thinking about?

            They idea is to get people thinking about things, and how it is from the point of view of others.

        •  According to the Numbers Posted Above by Kyril (0+ / 0-)

          4% of the men in the study were serial rapists with an average of 7 offenses.  Collectively this accounts for assaults against 28% of women, or close to the one in three that you cite.

          So that one man in twenty five is the problem.  Is that "just a handful of bad apples?"  Of course not, especially as that phrase is generally used to sweep the problem under the rug.  It does, however, caution against tarring all men as potential rapists.
