Idiots or trained monkeys, more talk about abused women, no mention of abused men.

December 14, 2011

abused menHere we go again with another round of woe is women forget the abused men. Here, discrimination by omission equals Women Industry propaganda…

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) 2010 report (released Nov. 2011) says: “More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.”  See executive summary at .

Mike Stobbe of the Associated Press reported 1 in 4 women were victims of intimate partner violence (IVP) and 1 in 5 women have been “raped.”

Stobbe opines, “It’s a startling number: 1 in 4 women surveyed by the government say they were violently attacked by their husbands or boyfriends” though the Press Democrat headline reads “Survey: 1 in 5 U.S. women victims of sexual assault.” Apparently Stobbe is a baby reporter and doesn’t know this is old news propaganda re packed and wrapped as a caring gift for the Holidays.

A few minutes ago when I Googled “Mike Stobbe Associated Press and rape” there were 59,200 results, two minutes later there were 59,400 results.

One man who sent me an email re this old information repackaged as new wrote,

“And ‘rape’ was defined to include ‘completed forced penetration, attempted forced penetration, or alcohol/drug facilitated completed penetration.’  See executive summary, page 11.  Alcohol/drug facilitated completed penetration is NOT necessarily rape.  Otherwise, I’ve been raped NUMEROUS times by my girlfriends, throughout my life.”    

It seems the rape of men by ignorant or ideologically driven reporters continues too. They just don’t seem able to extend any sympathy or recognition to men who suffer similar if not worse treatment than women, especially if the treatment was at the hands of a female abuser.

Idiots or trained monkeys, take your pick.

    I heard the selective facts doled out by NPR today am outraged. Absolutely no mention of the violence men face whatsoever. I am convinced the media is just plain bigoted when it comes to reporting on this subject.

    Something about this survey's rape section is bothering me. It appears they do not identify a male being forced to penetrate as being rape. Under Key Findings, they identify 1 in 5 women being raped, but only 1 in 71 men. They then go on to identify 1 in 21 (much larger number than 1 in 71) as having been forced to penetrate… Is being forced to penetrate not rape, given it is forced? I also find it hard to believe that only 1 in 71 men have ever had sex while drunk of high. They seem to carry this through to the 12 month section, were not a single man was raped apparently.

    I also find it disheartening that being fearful of harmed or killed be required to include stalking. Men tend to be less fearful of women (deservedly or not), but do suffer a great deal of property damage or reputation damage from vindictive ex's stalking them (there are dozens of songs, by women, promoting such behavior), does this not count?

    They then go on to include rape and stalking into their intimate partner violence numbers. This takes that 1 in 5/ 1 in 71 number for rape, and uses it to skew these results, and despite that, men still come in close, just 5% less victimization rate. How many more men than women need to be suffering intimate partner violence to make up the difference seen in the rape figure? Is that why they needed to include rape into this figure, just so men wouldn't be the primary victims?

    Impact on violence defines "impact" as including the use of services men don't generally have access to.

    They also suddenly lose access to their numbers when describing perpetrators, with such inaccurate results as "majority" and "predominantly" , "mostly" and "nearly half". What's majority? 51% is technically a majority (it is in government)?
