While writing my previous paper on art, I took a look around at TheCut. Man, every article there is bald propaganda, and reads like it comes straight out of the dungeons at Langley. [Of course that could be said about all other mainstream sources online and off, but we are here today.] I didn’t read one article that wasn’t stinking with heavy spin and layers of lies. A large percentage seem to be written by young women—or at least that is what the bylines would have you believe. Maybe that is why the site is called The Cut. I guess it was that or The Gash. Or to be even more on the nose, we could name it “The Intel Front that is trying very hard to be vagina friendly, but that is really lethal to genitals of all kinds”.
Well, if they are going to be TheCut here, I will be TheSword. My guess is I can slash through to some truth, no matter how deeply they bury it.
We will start with the article at the link above, entitled “Heirs to the Sexual Revolution”. It is supposed to be about the sexual climate in colleges. Laura Kern and Noreen Malone are shoveling the propaganda here, and they get to the punchline very fast. Paragraph two begins:
The apparent rise of rape on campus is more recent and more disconcerting. A new generation of activists has raised awareness of what appears to be a crisis: Studies show that as many as 25percent of college women report having been raped, and college administrations have been repeatedly criticized for their anemic responses to alleged assaults.
Even if you haven’t studied this question at all, you should already be on the alert. Study the curious wording there. The “apparent” rise. What “appears to be” a crisis. “Studies show”. “As many as25%”. “Women report”. “Anemic responses” to “alleged assaults”. If these ladies were reporting on an actual crisis, the wording would be completely different. It would be something like this:
The rise of rape on campus is more recent and more disconcerting. Convictions in court show a terrible and pressing crisis: exactly 25 percent of college women have been raped, and college administrations are being sued in class-action all over the country for their immoral and illegal lack of response to these assaults.
Let’s just go through the original quote from the beginning. We are told that a new generation of activists has raised awareness of this crisis. Which activists? Who, for instance? We need to know so that we can check their data. We aren’t told, of course. All we get is “activists”. I checked the data of the old generation of activists who were doing exactly the same thing—under the exact same cover of imprecise and misleading language—back in the 1990s. It turns out they were just making it up. That’s when this 1 in 4 claim first raised its head. It had been growing for decades: it was 1 in 7, then 1 in 6,then 1 in 5, and finally 1 in 4. Or did it hit 1 in 3 for a while after that? Seems like it did, but they backed off that, since they were getting too close to 1 in 1. They can’t claim every single women is reporting being raped, can they? Someone might get suspicious. Like those women that hadn’t been raped. Anyway, at that time I was writing letters to the editor, but they refused to print anything by aman on the subject. Fortunately for me, some women were saying the same thing, and actually publishing the research. Camille Paglia was outspoken at the time, and Katie Roiphe, but Christina Hoff Sommers* took the cake. She proved many of these women activists were simply lying.
For myself, I researched it because it didn’t make any sense. I was in my late 20s at the time and still spent some time on campus (University of Texas, Austin). I was still dating college-age girls then, andI knew a lot of people that age in the area. If 1 in 4 girls were getting raped, there would have been a huge uprising on campus by boyfriends and brothers and fathers and mothers. Instead, there was nothing. I didn’t talk to a single girl who claimed to have been raped, and heard nothing serious through the grapevine. Once I started studying the question, I did ask a lot of women I knew about it,but I only got vague responses, like “well, I know this girl who knows someone who claimed she was raped”. Sorry girls, that isn’t good enough for me. I need something solid. The form of the response led me to conclude these girls were just reading the propaganda and believing it.
Now, I’m not saying no rapes are happening. I’m not saying no boys are applying undue pressure. I’m saying that police reports and rape trials don’t support the 1 in 4 claim. Not even close. I ran the numbers then, and it was something less than 1 in 200, if that. And that included all claims: not just rape, but attempted rape, undue pressure, and regret.
Another reason I researched it is that I could see the fake statistics were creating a lot of unnecessary fear. As a man, I was feeling the propaganda directly, since all trust had gone out the window. Yes, in the 80s, there was a good deal of sexual freedom. The kind of openness they talk about now actually existed back then, to a certain extent. AIDS had already been imported to scare us, but that wasn’t working except on gays. Many straights had wasted time and money getting tested, but none of us were positive, so the whole thing sort of died on the vine. They had to come up with something else.Later they would come up with the phony genital warts scare in the mid-90s, but in the early 90s they were already promoting these faked rape statistics. I guess they decided to hit it hard from the female end, since the males weren’t scaring. And the females bought it. I guess most of them really thought25% of their pals were getting raped. I could be mean and say girls aren’t too good at math, but few people—women or men—are good at math at that age, or any age. That’s why fake statistics work on most people. And few men or women are good at questioning the propaganda. It never occurs to them that they are being lied to.
But they are: all the time about everything.
Also notice that I have shown the first sentence is an outright lie. The authors claim the rise of rape on campus is recent, which is why it is a crisis. But that isn’t true. According to these fake rape statistics,1 in 4 women on campus have been reporting being raped since the early 1990s. I know, I was there. I have written about it. So there is no rise, and it isn’t recent. It has been holding steady for at least 30 years. And yet the university administrators don’t seem to care? Thirty years of ¼ of coeds getting raped, and universities don’t care? You would think that might cut down on their rates of female matriculation, wouldn’t you? If high school girls really believed their chances of getting raped in college were 1 in 4 going in, do you think the universities would remain open? No, they would go bankrupt, the lot of them. Those are terrible odds. If you went to the pool and there was a sign posted outside telling you 1 in 4 people who went swimming there drowned, you wouldn’t pay your money and dive right in, would you? You would look for another pool.
