U.S. Government’s new definition of rape…everyone’s a rapist. Very inclusive.

Did I do that– really?

NOTE: If you are not aware of the Administration’s new definition of rape you should be. So, here it is, right from the Office of the Attorney General. As written, if you think it through, everyone in the United States that has ever had, or every will have sex with another person may be guilty of rape. However, considering the current Administration’s blatant disregard for males, it’s extremely doubtful any effort will be made to include women in the new definition, not even women in same sex relationships. How convenient. It appears rape will soon be on the rise, including false accusations, to help fuel the ever expanding Women Industries. What do you think?

Attorney General Eric Holder Announces Revisions to the Uniform Crime Report’s Definition of Rape
Data Reported on Rape Will Better Reflect State Criminal Codes, Victim Experiences

U.S. Department of Justice January 06, 2012
  • Office of Public Affairs (202) 514-2007/TDD (202)514-1888

WASHINGTON—Attorney General Eric Holder today announced revisions to the Uniform Crime Report’s (UCR) definition of rape, which will lead to a more comprehensive statistical reporting of rape nationwide. The new definition is more inclusive, better reflects state criminal codes and focuses on the various forms of sexual penetration understood to be rape. The new definition of rape is: “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.” The definition is used by the FBI to collect information from local law enforcement agencies about reported rapes.

“Rape is a devastating crime and we can’t solve it unless we know the full extent of it,” said Vice President Biden, a leader in the effort to end violence against women for over 20 years and author of the landmark Violence Against Women Act. “This long-awaited change to the definition of rape is a victory for women and men across the country whose suffering has gone unaccounted for over 80 years.”

“These long overdue updates to the definition of rape will help ensure justice for those whose lives have been devastated by sexual violence and reflect the Department of Justice’s commitment to standing with rape victims,” Attorney General Holder said. “This new, more inclusive definition will provide us with a more accurate understanding of the scope and volume of these crimes.”

“The FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Advisory Policy Board recently recommended the adoption of a revised definition of rape within the Summary Reporting System of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program,” said David Cuthbertson, FBI Assistant Director, CJIS Division. “This definitional change was recently approved by FBI Director Robert S. Mueller. This change will give law enforcement the ability to report more complete rape offense data, as the new definition reflects the vast majority of state rape statutes. As we implement this change, the FBI is confident that the number of victims of this heinous crime will be more accurately reflected in national crime statistics.”

The revised definition includes any gender of victim or perpetrator, and includes instances in which the victim is incapable of giving consent because of temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity, including due to the influence of drugs or alcohol or because of age. The ability of the victim to give consent must be determined in accordance with state statute. Physical resistance from the victim is not required to demonstrate lack of consent. The new definition does not change federal or state criminal codes or impact charging and prosecution on the local level.

“The revised definition of rape sends an important message to the broad range of rape victims that they are supported and to perpetrators that they will be held accountable,” said Justice Department Director of the Office on Violence Against Women Susan B. Carbon. “We are grateful for the dedicated work of all those involved in making and implementing the changes that reflect more accurately the devastating crime of rape.”

The longstanding, narrow definition of forcible rape, first established in 1927, is “the carnal knowledge of a female, forcibly and against her will.” It thus included only forcible male penile penetration of a female vagina and excluded oral and anal penetration; rape of males; penetration of the vagina and anus with an object or body part other than the penis; rape of females by females; and non-forcible rape.

Police departments submit data on reported crimes and arrests to the UCR. The UCR data are reported nationally and used to measure and understand crime trends. In addition, the UCR program will also collect data based on the historical definition of rape, enabling law enforcement to track consistent trend data until the statistical differences between the old and new definitions are more fully understood.

The revised definition of rape is within FBI’s UCR Summary Reporting System Program. The new definition is supported by leading law enforcement agencies and advocates and reflects the work of the FBI’s CJIS Advisory Policy Board.

    It oHow does a “flirtatious” grab end up penetrating someone? How does harmless contact (that is left up to “creative interpretation” and concluded as rape) penetrate someone? Is that just an accident? Penetration is a deliberate action. There were times when my husband would flirtatiously grab me in between the legs and no matter how rough he was being he would not penetrate me.

    You hit a woman in between the legs and it’s sexual assault. Do the same to a man , and we call it comedy

    I should caution, however, from jumping to conclusions that this “new definition” is somehow the “new law” now. I should at least clarify my post above, which may be interpreted in this vein. It is not new criminal law. It seeks first and foremost to boost the false statistics of rape by being overbroad and all inclusive. If this new definition were the guide, all TSA agents would be rapists. By boosting the stats of what now will be reported as “rape”, the federal government seems to be seeking a justification for the burgeoning federal bureaucracy of VAWA and other “offices on women”, advancing special interests. Secondly, it seeks to influence state criminal (penal) statutes. It has not propagated into the governing criminal laws, but it is aiming to get there. Take heed.

    So forced copulation of a male by a female (maybe he’s asleep or at gunpoint) is not rape?

  5. Eric Ross, PhD on August 23, 2012 at 10:40 AM

    Let’s parse the old and the new definitions. The new definition has a silver lining – inclusion of males as victims of rape, but the black cloud of opening a flood-gate to false accusations is ominous, indeed. So it is a bit of good news, but mostly – a lot of terrible news.

    Rape was previously defined as the “carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will,” thus excluding male victims of rape, despite the obvious fact that rape of a male is oftentimes savage and brutal.

    The new definition, according to the FBI’s website, is:

    “penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”

    It is inclusive of males, thankfully. But that’s where the silver lining ends, and the horror stories begin:

    What is highly circumspect in the new definition, is the language “no matter how slight”. It invites “creative interpretations” of what may have been nothing more than a flirtatious “grab” as “rape” and as such, is a horrendous overreach, deliberately created in order to have a very broad, very vague definition of “rape”, which makes any physical contact a potential rape, and indeed, anyone – a rapist.

    The new definition was primarily influenced by the input from feminists organizations, such as “Rape is Rape” foundation, which bombarded the FBI with tens of thousands of emails, all urging to change rape’s definition, and the Obama administration’s election strategy to pander to the radical feminists’ special interests in hope to woo women’s votes.

    It is the result of politicizing criminology to the extend of making it absurd. But make no mistake about it: it creates new cash flows for the Lawyers, Inc. in defending the falsely accused, and it creates a major trump card for the enterprising females to declare almost any physical contact, which she may have at some point initiated, deem undesirable any time later and thus – a rape. A nice lever for those seeking fat settlement.

    It is also another victory for the feminist jurisprudence. One of the founding mothers of this regime, Catharin A. MacKinnon is the most-widely cited lawyer in the US, thanks to the sycophantic feminists born into the lives of leisure and privilege, like MacKinnon was, seeking to perpetuate their elitist lifestyles. She makes many a lengthy argument that in a male-dominated society, women do not know their “true” sexuality and unwittingly assume sexuality, which is “hoisted” upon them by men. For some, such as MacKinnon, lesbian fisting or power-dildoing, blowing the fuses in the house, is the only acceptable form of sexual intercourse.

    In their hatred of men, in their malignant penis envy taken to the unbelievable pseudo-intellectual heights of unprecedented mental pathology, they attempt to speak on behalf of all women. In their opinion, women “cannot make an informed decision” when they “consent” to sex, thus any sexual intercourse is rape, even if both (heterosexual) parties think they “consented” to it, and the woman initiated it.

    That’s the crux of the argument by the frigid professor of lesbo-sciences, considered a hopeless, deranged prude even by the majority of the “sisterhood.” Instead of being treated by sexopathologists and psychiatrists, they strive to re-educate the rest of the world, but above all — all men. As a deafening chorus of rabid feminists screams, “all men are rapists,” and as the craziest among them shriek, “men are rapists of their children,” the screamers in the rank and file make fat salaries on this racket, which men unwittingly shrug-off as inevitable crazy-making, though “innocent” it is not. Expect rape cases galore, and our sons as cannon fodder for “the best judicial system in the world.”

    Under the “new” wording (which reinstates the flagging common law requirement of penetration), if a male brutally attacks a female sex organ with a knife, it is rape, but if a female brutally attacks a male sex organ with a knife, it is not.

    To truly gender-neutralize rape laws, it would be necessary to redefine sex crimes in terms of the harm actually done. Many states have been moving in this direction already, replacing the sexist common-law “penetration” definition with statutory crimes like “sexual battery” or “criminal sexual conduct.” It is discouraging that the federal government is actively trying to reinstate the sexism of the common law.
