By the “not all men” logic, Russian Roulette is a perfectly safe game to play. Sure, one of the chambers has a bullet in it…
but not all chambers
Are you saying one in six men are rapists, criminals, etc.?
This makes me so angry. YES, 98% of rapists (both male & female victims) are men. This does NOT mean that 98% of men are rapists. In fact, it’s estimated that only 6% of the male population are rapists. An estimated 25-30% of the female population have been raped. An estimated 10% of all rape victims are men.
So no, not all men. Nowhere near all men. A perpetrator is more likely to be male, but that has nothing to do with the male population. Studies show that the average rapist has around 6 victims. So it’s not men you need to be worried about.
However, the statement, “yes all women,” is true. With 1/3 of us being raped, it’s definitely a problem. But you can’t place the blame on men when 1/10 rape victims are men and only 3/50 men are rapists.
okay, so I’m not sure how you think percentages work, but 6% of the male population having committed rape is not a small amount of people.
I live in a city with a population of just over 4 million people. lets assume 50% of the population is male (this is just easier for maths, I’m not ignoring intersex people, non binary people, etc.)
approximately 18% of the population is under the age of 15, for the sake of argument, lets assume none of these males have ever committed rape (I know people under 15 can commit rape, but be kind, this makes the maths easier)
That means there are about 1,642,000 men over the age of 15 in my city.
If 6% of the male population are rapists (I don’t know if this statistic is true, I am quoting the above poster) that is 98,400 rapists in my city alone.
Thats almost one hundred thousand rapists. How is that a small amount of men? How is that something that something that is bad to criticise or highlight?
