Trigger Warning: This article contains disturbing statistics about rape

Part 1…Horny Frat Boys…Touch the Monkey…Fear the Rape Culture
Horny American men are to blame for a very dark reality: 1 in 4 women will be raped on college campuses this year.
These statistics come from he Association of American Universities released in 2007 regarding sexual assault on campus.
The definition of sexual assault has expanded from unwanted penetration to a broad sweep of incidents:
Kissing…any and all physical contact, which can include touching through clothes…suggestive speech that encourages sex…intimidation or pressure to perform sexual acts…situations where consent has been given but under conditions of intoxication…making someone sexually vulnerable and otherwise uncomfortable.
The AAU’s broad definition of sexual assault, along with the victim mindset from campus gender studies departments has stimulated a biased statistic – 1 in 4 women will be sexually assaulted – but the real danger with the 1 in 4 statistic is that it breeds an environment of Guilty until proven innocent, which social justice warriors seem to have little regard for the dangers that false allegations have on the lives of the accused.
In order to set the record straight about rape statistics on college campuses, I have included the unbiased numbers below compliments of the United States Department of Justice and the National Crime and Victimization Data (NCVD).
Below is an excerpt from a report on the Justice Department findings by the American Enterprise Institute:
Over the 1995-2013 period, the rate of rape and sexual assault victimization was almost 25% higher for non-students ages 18-24 (7.6 cases per 1,000 females) compared to students enrolled in a post-secondary institution in that age group (6.1 cases per 1,000 females), see chart above.
Despite all of the media attention on campus sexual assault, women enrolled in colleges and universities are actually much safer compared to women in that age group who are not attending a postsecondary institution.
Over the 1995-2013 period, the rate of rape and sexual assault victimization for both students and non-students has been falling (see chart). For women attending college, the rate of rape/sexual assault has fallen by more than 50%, from 9.2 incidents per 1,000 women in 1997 to 4.4 cases per 1,000 in 2013. According to the media, politicians and gender activists, there is supposed to be a college “rape epidemic” when in fact, the rate of college female victimization has been trending downward for the last two decades.
National Crime and Victimization data shows that only about 1 in 41 women were victims of rape or sexual assault (threatened, completed and attempted; and reported and unreported) while in college for four years during the entire period investigated from 1995 to 2013:
6.1 women per 1,000 = “1 in 163.9 women” per year, and over four years attending college would then be = “1 in 41 women” while in college.
18 to 24 year old women attending college are 25% less likely to get raped than their non-collegiate counterparts…Since 1997 sexual assault has declined by 50%…Over the past 4 years 1 in 52 college women were raped or sexually assaulted.
While fanatical feminists conceal facts under the guise of victim-hood. Men must now preemptively defend themselves against rape accusations. To mitigate the threat that women pose, many college men have set up recording equipment to capture proof of consent during sexual encounters in the event that a female cries rape in the early hours of a post blackout hangover.
