Quote Of The Day

“Maxwell invokes dire statistics: “Is 1 in 5 American women surviving rape or attempted rape a cultural norm?” That 1-in-5 figure is based on Centers for Disease Control surveys in 2010 and 2011 loaded with leading questions so shoddily worded that they elided the distinction between rape and consensual drunk sex. Indeed, in response to similar questions, men in the survey reported being “forced to penetrate” a woman during the past year with a frequency similar to women’s reports of rape. Either the CDC numbers greatly inflate sexual violence, or “rape culture” is a two-way street.” — Commentary Mag
