The arrest rate is 25% and the conviction rate on arrest is around 58%. So a very small number of cases actually end in conviction.

91% of rape victims are female and 99% of rapists are male.

Do you mind giving a source for these claims? Because from where I'm standing it seems that when it comes to rape women are 44% of the perpetrators. The data is from 2010, in United States.

http://www.cdc.gov/ViolencePrevention/pdf/NISVS_Report2010-a.pdf

Quote from the data:

We find through the above statistics that 1 003 464 males and 1 245 870 females were the victims of rape or attempted rape by the opposite sex over the 12-month period previous to this study. We can conclude that over 44% of the perpetrators of rape or attempted rape during the 12 month period previous to this study were FEMALE

When it comes to domestic violence the data is not clear, but it strongly suggests the violence between male and female are more or less the same:

http://www.dailyfinance.com/2010/01/30/a-hidden-crime-domestic-violence-against-men-is-a-growing-probl/

And yet, more than 200 survey-based studies show that domestic violence is just as likely to strike men as women. In fact, the overwhelming mass of evidence indicates that half of all domestic violence cases involve an exchange of blows and the remaining 50% is evenly split between men and women who are brutalized by their partners.

As you can see, it's not as clear as you make it out to be.

Also if you want to talk about Taxi Drivers not being believed - check out the case of John Warboys - a rapist who drove a taxi in my home town. He raped over a 100 women from the back of his cab but police refused to be believe he could be guilty because of his proffession.

And that gives the women right to falsely report rape how exactly? If the man hadn't recorded the video he would have been rotting in prison, instead he has to prove his innocence, he's not innocent until proven, but the other way around.

Also the reason that book isn't sexist when it is a man on the cover is because men, unlike women, haven't spent centuries being treated as possesions, and aren't regulaly compared to dogs to demean them. Who gets called bitch and dog all the time? Its not men.

Huh? So if people from Asia weren't that much enslaved throughout the centuries it would be alright to make a book called "How to treat 'em yellow folks right- rice collecting 101"? What kind of backward logic is that?

I really like these articles alot! , in my opinion the artcles such as 1reasonwhy and the dead island statue dont really fit with the core giantbomb audience , i know you feel strongly about these things patrick but in my opinion it just doesnt fit

No one cares. Start your own website if you want to be protected from stories that require a little maturity.

Stories from a man that is proud of the fact he smuggles beers into cinemas like an asshole and makes sure to mention it on every possible occasion.

Dat ad hominem.

As if bko's comment wasn't? If these stories require maturity they shouldn't be written by Patrick. Bringing beers to a movie makes you as mature as a 14-year-old, sorry. And for Zero Dark Thirty of all movies!

I'm glad sexism is being discussed over, over, and over again. Same for racism, violence, and tons of other things that we may be sick of hearing about. All of these issues actually still exist and there can never be enough open discussion about it.

If you are alleging that men are seriously discriminated against based on their sex in ANY society ever, I'd love to hear your evidence, if only for a good laugh.

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=18c_1242448918 - A veteran Edmonton taxi driver is speaking publicly about a civil lawsuit he filed last year against four young women who falsely accused him of sexual assault after travelling in his car three years ago. Fortunely he had RECORDED THE VIDEO INSIDE HIS CAB, otherwise he would have been rotting in prison just because women claimed they were raped, without any proof whatsoever.

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=182_1346689914- Without the video, he's in jail for 20 years, allegations of rape plus witnesses. Such is the power of the testimony of a woman in a rape case - no matter how neurotic she is. Thank God, or rather, thank technology, for video cameras.

http://www.redding.com/news/2012/jun/29/burney-woman-pleads-no-contest-in-teen-sex-case/ - A 24-year-old Burney woman pleaded no contest Thursday in Shasta County Superior Court to having sex with a 15-year-old boy. In exchange for her plea, Shell Amelia Harper agreed to a sentence of 180 days in jail and three years' probation. She won't be required to register as a sex offender, but will face four years in prison if she violates the terms of her probation, her defense attorney said Friday.

Now imagine what would happen if it was a 24-year-old guy with a 15 years old girl?

A group of 3 girls strip an 11-year-old boy on the street, laugh at him, post the video on the internet. The mother doesn't want to press charges, because it was "a prank".

The boy is crying and screaming during the whole thing, and during one moment his throat is held by a girl's knee to stop him from screaming.

Imagine an opposite situation.

Imagine an 11 year old girl striped naked in public by three boys, video posted online by one of the boys.

In what fantasy world would this be considered a prank? Who can even picture them not being charged with sexual assault, attempted rape, probably put down as pedophiles dealing in child pornography, etc.

When a boy is humiliated, sexually assaulted and traumatized it's bullying, when a girl has her feelings hurt it's a sign of the patriarchal system that all women have to live with each day.

Fuck. That.

Anyone who sees something like this and isn't furious should be shown for the horrid person they are. The girls should be tried with sexual assault (at least) the mother should be tried with neglect for not pressing charges after seeing this and the 1) boy 2) girls 3) mother should get some kind of help with their respective problems.

How is this not sexual assault? There shouldn't be an option when it comes to pressing charges or not. A crime was committed and they need to see the consequences for their actions. I am so utterly disgusted and disappointed by the mother.

Imagine if "man" was replaced by "woman" on the cover.

Is that enough?
