Bulletin Board v238

Campus Health does not offer equal support for male survivors — The University knows it can’t provide identical services for male and female survivors of sexual violence. But instead of providing equal resources for both groups, Counseling and Psychological Services has largely pushed the needs of male survivors off campus. There is only enough interest to run one sexual assault survivor group on campus, which is open to female-identified survivors.

The CDC’s Rape Numbers Are Misleading — “CDC: Nearly 1 in 5 Women Raped.” “One in Five U.S. Women Has Been Raped: CDC Survey.” These alarming headlines were typical of the coverage of last week’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report on sexual and intimate violence in the United States. The CDC study—the second in two years—seems to support a radical feminist narrative that has been gaining mainstream attention recently: that modern America is a “rape culture” saturated with misogynistic violence.

Men’s helpline gets 25,000 calls over four months — SIF, the mobile app launched five months ago for the protection of men’s rights, has received a mega response in the last four months. The app, launched by Save India Family Foundation NGO, has received 25,000 calls in the last four-five months. It was launched to help men at the receiving end of domestic violence or slapped with false rape cases with a dedicated helpline “08882498498”.

There’s No Ignoring New Prison Rape Statistics — While the U.K. government says sexual assault happens to fewer than 200 prisoners each year, a new report shows that figure is actually in the thousands. Britain’s Ministry of Justice was left scrambling Monday following the release of a new report revealing the extent of sexual abuse in its correctional facilities.

Three detail alleged sexual abuse by former Morris Boy Scout leader — In often graphic testimony Monday, three men offered detailed accounts alleging they were sexually abused by a former Morris County Boy Scout leader when they were teenagers during the 1990s. The three former Scouts testified during a pretrial hearing in Superior Court in Morristown in which the prosecution is seeking permission to allow testimony that would show the circumstances and other activities related to the alleged sexual assaults committed by Stephen Corcoran, now 46, of Morris Plains, a former longtime leader of Parsippany-based Troop 173.

Woman As Aggressor: The Unspoken Truth Of Domestic Violence — I approach this writing with some trepidation because it will run counter in some areas to the current debate regarding domestic violence. When wading in these highly volatile and controversial waters, one finds that disclaimers – like life jackets – must be affixed to the body of the argument.

Woman Sentenced To Prison For Phony Rape Complaint Against Former Boyfriend — A woman who accused her former boyfriend of raping her, causing him to be arrested and jailed for more than a month before she recanted, was sentenced Friday to 45 days in jail. Pansie Saddler, 53, pleaded no contest earlier to falsely reporting an incident and making a false statement to police. Her sentence was two years in prison, suspended after 45 days, and two years of probation.

  1. That “Women as aggressors” article got at least one statistics very wrong:

    In 2011, an estimated 19,000 rapes and sexual assaults — overwhelmingly against women — took place in the military.

    The fact is that in 2011 a bit more than half of the rapes and sexual assaults which took place in the military were against men.
