“A survey of 11-to-14 year-olds found: ·
- 51% of the boys and 41% of the girls said forced sex was acceptable if the boy, “spent a lot of money” on the girl;
- 31% of the boys and 32% of the girls said it was acceptable for a man to rape a woman with past sexual experience;
- 87% of boys and 79% of girls said sexual assault was acceptable if the man and the woman were married;
- 65% of the boys and 47% of the girls said it was acceptable for a boy to rape a girl if they had been dating for more than six months.”
This is fucking scary, and it shows that we do live in a “rape culture” in which abusers and rapists have little idea that they are doing something wrong. My abuser didn’t….
In which we despair for the universe…
There are so many of these horrible survey results, and everyone should know them and then tell me there’s no such thing as misogyny and rape culture.
These stats need to be reblogged all the fucking time because SHIT
What the fuck.
I am kinda sitting here in shock at these 87%/79% levels of support for sexual assault within marriage…
I mean the rest of it is depressing, too. But the percentages for that particular one are way higher than even my pessimistic self would expect. wtf happened.
