Partially True Information About Rape

The statistics are true, but the advice/analysis is bad.

44% of rape victims are under 18, and 80% are under 30. So, to prevent rape, wear clothes that make you look old, maybe even walk with a limp and a cane.

73% of rapes are perpetrated by someone the victim recognizes. Your best defense, then, might be unpopularity or a poor memory for faces.

43% of rapes occur between the hours of 6pm and midnight, while only 24% occur between midnight and 6am. If you’re going to walk home alone through a bad neighborhood, wait until after midnight (which is safer than broad daylight, from 6am to 6pm, accounting for 33%).

15 out of 16 rapists never spend a day in jail for their crime, but I think the 1 out of 16 rapists who do spend a day in jail can never control their bowels again.

  2. Thank you for not thinking I'm a monster for trying to use [bad] humor to bring up something that is uncomfortable to talk about for most people.
