The Latest Fake Rape Statistic: 1 In 16 Women Reports Her First Sexual Experience As Rape

Activists make up these kinds of ridiculous statistics to push an agenda and next thing you know, it starts getting repeated endlessly in the media despite the fact it’s obviously exaggerated. Look at this garbage being pushed by USA Today,

The first experience with sexual intercourse for more than 3 million U.S. women, many in their teens, was forced or coerced, according to a study published Monday.

Those women faced more long-term health consequences compared with peers who had a voluntary first experience, according to the study in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Researchers based their analysis on an annual survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which asked women ages 18 to 44 if they chose to have sex for the first time. Of the respondents who answered no, sometimes reporting multiple types of coercion, about 56% described being verbally pressured, 46% said they were held down and 25% said they were physically harmed.

“Any sexual encounter (with penetration) that occurs against somebody’s will is rape. If somebody is verbally pressured into having sex, it’s just as much rape,” said lead author Laura Hawks, an internist and Harvard Medical School researcher.

In other words, to come up with that number, they changed the definition of rape to come up with these numbers.

First of all, “threatening to end the relationship” without sex, which was also categorized as rape in the study, obviously isn’t rape (which is probably why USA Today left that embarrassing detail out). To the contrary, it’s perfectly legitimate for EITHER PERSON to say, “I don’t want to continue on in this relationship if we’re not having sex.”

Along similar lines, verbally pressuring someone to have sex isn’t rape unless it crosses the line into say, threats or blackmail. There are two people in a relationship and if one of them wants sex while the other is reluctant, that person has a right to convince the other person to change his or her mind.

Just because “lead researcher” Laura Hawks is some kind of feminist wacko with an oddball way to looking at rape doesn’t mean that everyone else has to go along with it. Treating this obviously flawed study like it’s legitimate is just another example of how much modern journalism has become little more than far Left-wing activism under another name.
