When was the last time Gbaji provided a cite? His sources are usually that he claims to know someone whose roomate's aunt took a class in college about it, thus granting he, Gbaji, intimate knowledge and understanding of the topic at hand.

I am both laughing and cringing. I realized all this a couple months ago, and is why I vowed never to respond to a Gbaji post again. It's hard to kick the habit at first, but once you do you'll be much happier.


Edit: I used to keep responding to him because I felt it was my duty to dissolve any notion that he might be correct, and prevent him from swaying fence-sitters to his position. But after this, that's no longer a worry. Smiley: laugh

This pretty much gets to the heart of it for me. I feel like, if I leave his bulls[i][/i]hit out there unanswered, then somehow it might be interpretted as credible. But this...this is just beyond the pale. This is more like the sort of trolling varrus does.

I remember a friend back in high school that was got ****** at her boyfriend that she claimed that he raped her. Her parents got involved and he was charged with sexual assault and battery. Nothing came of it and the case was dropped, but the aftermath of it was horrendous. No parent ever let their daughter around this guy because "you never know" and he ended up going to a college across the country after we graduated.

But after reading Gbaji's post, I think his date rape reasoning is somewhere along the lines of "when a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

No. She really didn't. I haven't been online since then.

Her scenarios are nice, and they do illustrate her point, but they don't disprove mine either.

First off, the first scenario is incredibly incredibly rare. I don't think I have *ever* heard of that happening. A man sneaking in quietly, hearding the woman in to a back room with a gun, threatening to kill her children if she doesn't have *** with him? Find me a single example of that happening. It's the kind of thing you might see on a movie of the week, but doesn't happen in real life. Maybe one in a thousand rapes happen that way, and I'm being generous.

The second senario is *not* rape. She made a choice. She was offered the choice of calling a cab, or having *** with someone. That's not rape. It's not incredibly nice of the guy, but that's a far cry from rape. She was not forced. She was given a choice. Can you seriously tell me that walking home is worse then being raped? I'm sorry, but no woman would make that choice if she really thought that was rape. That's unfair pressure, to be sure. But that's *not* rape! I can't even believe anyone bought that one.

The vast majority of rapes are exactly as I described. They are violent. Women are grabbed, tossed around, beaten, and then raped. While I certainly can accept the possiblity of someone being raped without a mark being left, it's going to be the exception and not the rule.



Exactly how many people do you know of who've been raped, where they actually had *no* choice about it (ie: not your bogus second example), and they weren't beaten or bruised or hurt in any other way?


My point is that we can come up with example after example of women abusing the broadness of our current definition and legal approach to rape. The OP is just one. It's hardly the first, and not even close to likely to be the last. Show me that the rate of women raped with no physical signs of it is greater then the rate of men unfairly accused of rape as happened in the OP. If you can't, then how can we justify a system that punishes men randomly so that an incredibly small number of woman can press charges when they might not have been able to otherwise. Doubly silly since legally you'll have a **** of a time proving rape without any physical signs anyway, right? Are we helping those rare cases at all with this? I don't think so. But we are doing a heck of a lot of harm...

And we call one another on it as well. Gbaji is the master at making up stuff and then proclaiming it to be fact and basing his entire argument off of his own fantasies. No reason to waste time chipping away at details when you can show the entire foundation to be a dream.

Reading comp is your friend. You've got nothing, so now you are making up sh[/i]it. "Calling a cab" was never an option. She was out in the middle of nowhere in the example. Unless she had a cell phone (which, hard is it may be to believe, not everyone does) then she had no choice.

As for the first option being rare, I can think of at least three different cases I've heard of where variations on that theme came into play (in one case, it was a carjacker who told the woman if she didn't cooperate, he would kill her baby who was in the back seat. In another case, someone followed a woman into her home when she left the door open while bringing in groceries--try watching [i]America's Most Wanted
sometime.)

So no, it's NOT extremely rare. You are talking out your *** on a subject you know absolutely nothing about, trying to justify letting bona fide rapists go scot-free. Just stop. You're completely full of sh[b][/b]it and everyone here sees that except for you (and Virus, and, I mean really, the fact that Virus is the only one backing you up should tell you something about the supportability of your claim.)

The "vast majority" of rapes are NOT violent assaults. If you spent even a week working a rape crisis line you would know that.

Quote:

Well, let's see...

My mother lost her virginity at 14 to a guy who threatened her with a pocket knife if she didn't put out. Her "choice" was submitting to ***, or getting stabbed. Are you going to say she wasn't raped because she was given a "choice"?

I was the first one on the scene, the one who called the cops, when my sister's husband got drunk at a wedding reception and pinned her down on the bed and forced himself inside her. She never had any bruises either. As I said, some women don't bruise easily even when there is physical force.

I really have to wonder about the mental stability of someone who is bending over backwards to justify rape. You seem to be about the percentages, well the percentage of girls who abuse existing rape laws to make false allegations is miniscule compared to the number of actual rapists who would go free if bruises and signs of physical struggle were our criteria for determining if someone was actually raped.

Quote:

In 1995, 354,670 women were the victims of a rape or sexual assault. (NationalCrime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice, 1996.)

<snip>

Approximately 28% of victims are raped by husbands or boyfriends, 35% by acquaintances, and 5% by other relatives. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994)

<snip other stuff>

According to the U.S. Department of Justice: (All statistics are taken from: Violenceagainst Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

One of every four rapes take place in a public area or in a parking garage.

31% of female victims reported that the offender was a stranger.

68% of rapes occur between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.

At least 45% of rapists were under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

In 29% of rapes, the offender used a weapon.

In 47% of rapes, the victim sustained injuries other than rape injuries.

75% of female rape victims require medical care after the attack.


So, if 29% of rape is "acquaintance rape" that means that according to Gbaji's logic, over 100,000 women just "made a bad choice."

53% of women who are raped have no other injuries (i.e. bruises, or that all-important "sign of a struggle") that means that 187,975 women would not be able to "prove" rape. Nearly 200,000 rapists would walk free if Gbaji had his way.

Getting an accurate number of how many rape allegations are deemed false is difficult, because there's propagandizing both on the part of ultrafeminists and the radical anti-feminist movement. According to an article about those wildly diverging statistics concerning how many rape allegations are actually false in the Columbia Journalism Review we get this statistic from the FBI:

Quote:
the FBI has been saying since 1991 that the annual rate for the false reporting of forcible sexual assault across the country has been a consistent 8 percent (through 1995, the most recent year available) ... The agency's guidelines define a report as false when an investigation determines that no offense occurred. A complainant's failure or refusal to cooperate in the investigation does not, by itself, lead to a finding of false report.


Assuming that the FBIs statistic is the closest to being accurate as we are going to come, then that means 28,373 men are falsely accused.

Let's see...187,975 actual rapists walking free if Gabji's criteria were adopted by law enforcement, or 28,373 men whose lives are inconvenienced by a miscarriage of justice. Looks like a gimme to me.

I feel awful for the men who are falsely accused. I think there should be extremely stiff penalties handed down for women who are proven to have filed false rape allegations. Reparations to their victim, jail time, community service, public humiliation...I'm fine with that. But the idea of letting potentially 200,000 rapists walk free just because they didn't manage to injure their victim is insupportable. Gbaji needs to be deeply ashamed of himself.

So should I assume when you say something is rare, you're just making sh[i][/i]it up to suit your arguments?


Aside from Ambrya (who I'll respond to), no one else has put any numbers out there either.

However, anecdotally, since the OP was about a case of *exactly* that happening, I'd say that the fact that women *do* claim rape for a variety of reasons without a rape actually occuring. I don't have to cite numbers since we're talking about that scenario occuring. I need only point to the article in the OP.

It would seem to me that the burden is on others to show that my argument is invalid. I'm saying that our rape laws make it too easy for the situation in the OP to occur. I'm saying that this is largely due to the reclassification of "date rape", and the host of ambiguities that brings to the entire issue.


Is that wrong? I'm pretty sure that if our standard for rape was that it had to be provably forcible sexual assualt, then this case would never have gotten past a basic physical examination of the victim.

Would that leave some legitimate rape victims out in the cold? Maybe. But my argument is that we're not talking about a very large number. By Ambrya's own stats, 75% of rape victims required medical attention. We have to assume that a higher percentage had marks/bruises/etc that were sufficient to establish a rape had occured, but didn't actually require medical attention, right?


I'm simply suggesting that the scenarios being created to justify the "no evidence" rape charge are pretty darn rare, but our current rape laws go to the exception rather then the rule, and IMO end up causing more pain then they resolve. You're not going to have any greater chance of a conviction in a rape case with no evidence regardless of how "seriously" the police are required to treat it. However, you will end up with situations exactly like the OP, where someone uses a charge of rape either to get back at someone, or just to avoid an unpleasant situation.

Umm... no

The onus is on you to support your arguments, not on us to accept your "facts" out of hand. When your "facts" are questioned, you don't try to turn it around by saying "prove I'm wrong!". Get some cites and numbers to support your "facts" or else admit you're making them up.

To wit:
Gbaji wrote:
What "date rape" is, is when a woman has *** with someone but says she didn't really want to. There's no way to tell if a woman had *** with the guy because she felt she had no choice at the time, or if she had it consentually and later felt bad about it and claimed he made her do it. Look at the documented cases of date rape out there. They are *not* what many people think. It's really not about women raped by people they date. It's women getting themselves into situations where they feel pressure to have *** with someone, but instead of refusing go along with it, and then after the fact feel they've been taken advantage of.


Find a credible site that supports this claim yet? 'Cause that's not what I read when I looked for info on date rape. Or did you just decide you'll redefine the term and act as if you have some credibility in doing so? 'Cause so far, your argument has been "This is what it is 'cause I said so! Prove me wrong!"

Huh!? I'm pointing to a case where a woman was able to make a claim of rape with no evidence other then her word. I'm stating that the changes in our rape laws that allow women to make such claims without any evidence is the reason we're seeing such things.

How do I have to "prove" this? If we didn't allow it, then the OP would never have happened. It's that simple. What is there to prove? Clearly, it's possible for a woman to charge a man with rape with out any rape have occured. I'm simply arguing that this happens because we have lowered the burden of proof in cases like that. Isn't that obvious?

I can only assume you're being intentionally obtuse to avoid having to make any actual cites. I quoted the portion I had been questioning all along and asked you to defend your imaginary definition of date rape.

I could rape my girlfriend without leaving a mark. She is tineh.

I mostly just wanted to chime in and say that Gbaji is a piece of sh[b][/b]it though. That is all.



Edit: Unless of course, Gbaji proves me wrong...

I'm making it easy for Gabji to understand what I'm questioning by adding it to my sig.

gbaji - nice troll. Even varus couldn't convince us he's as dumb as the arguments you posted here.

Bravo.

Look guys. I'm make it really simple for you. We can argue about statistics all day long. We can also argue about the definition of date rape all day long as well.

I remember all the debates over this back in the day. You have to remember that the definitions you're looking up and finding are the redefinitions after the fact. Before then, a women raped by an acquaintance was "raped". No one made a distinction. We knew that statistically many women were raped by someone they knew, but no one tried to make a new term for it.

Date rape includes rapes commited by someone the victim knows, but they didn't stop there. They added in "rapes" in which the coersion was non-physical. When I talk about "date rape", that's specifically the portion I'm talking about. Those which match the traditional definition of rape are "rape" whether commited by someone the victim knows or not. Those more like the case Ambrya brought up (she's given a choice of having *** with him or walking home), are *not* rape in the traditional sense.

That's what changed. That's what I'm ******** about. And the legal changes that came along with the creaction of the date rape classification are largely what is responsible for false claims like the one in the OP. Why is this such a hard concept to grasp? If you change your laws to allow for less evidence to be required for a charge of rape, you're obviously going to get some women who'll realize that they can claim rape and have a better chance of ******** over some poor guys life.


So maybe my definition of date rape doesn't match the textbook definition. But that's because I'm only including the deltas. What was "added" to the rape classification to make it "date rape". Since the simplistic "raped while on a date" fell under the catagory of rape before they came up with the date rape classification, that's *not* what I'm talking about. That's not what *changed* in the law with regards to date rape. What changed was that non-physical forms of coersion were considered "force" for the purposes of rape. The result is cases like that of the OP, and people like Abrya today coming up with a scenario like the woman in the woods and comfortably calling that rape.


Again. I don't buy those changes. They're bogus. The really sad thing is that they don't even help women or the cause of women's equality either. They hurt them. The inherent assumption in Ambrya's scenario is that the women had no choice because the woman is just a weak female who can't figure out how to manage to get home without a man to take care of her. Clearly, she's reliant for him to "save her" from the mean evil nightime. She clearly can't find a phone, or walk a couple miles on her own, so we must charge the man with a crime because she'd rather submit to *** then have to do things that any normal sane person would have no problem doing.

Yeah. Score one for women's rights on that one...

Is this your way of admitting there's no way in **** you'll find a credible source to agree with your asinine notions of what rape is?

Or that of any sane person. Just admit that you're full of misogynistic sh[/i]it. It's not as if anyone will be suprised.

Oh, of course. Your definitions don't match because yours are the advanced version, not the plebian version of date rape the rest of us commoners use Smiley: rolleyes

There are (almost) no laws specific to date rape. There's just rape laws. None that I know of anyway; feel free to prove me wrong with cites. My own searches only turned up the phrase "date rape" in conjunction with "date rape drug" and laws against their use*. I'd be tempted to say there are NO laws specific to date rape vs. 'traditional' rape except one source said "Most jurisdictions, however, make no legal distinction between date rape and rape that is committed by strangers." That would imply someone out there does, even if the laws are rare enough that I can't find them. On the other hand, at least one other legal site says "Date rape is a [i]nonlegal
term for forcible sexual activity between people who know one another during a social engagement." (Emphasis mine) In short, your ***** that "date rape laws" have changed things is either based on your imagination and/or complete crap.

"Date rape" is a term used by groups to focus on a particular subset of rape: that by people you know as opposed to random violence. Namely to remind females that rape isn't just something that happens in dark alleys. You'll note that said groups don't claim date rape is a woman having *** and then regretting it later.

*As well as some BBC story from '02 which I've no idea how it turned out and was about a potential law, not existing US law

I've got to support your points Jophiel.

I do, however, think I get what gbaji is driving at.

Basically he doesn't like the words we're using.

He wants different deffinitions for the words. This is basically the same reasoning that lead to the creation of PC and the term Date Rape in the first place I'll wager.

This tactic is fairly weak minded.

Imagine a biiiiig circle. This big circle is Rape. This circle has many circles inside it. They are labeled:
Forced - Physically holding the victim in place
Under Duress - Psychological/situational stress
By Aquaintance
By Stranger
Violent - Physical/Physiological stress, punishment by application for non-compliance.

These are not mutually exclusive, except Stranger/Aquaintance. Well I guess afterwords you know the person, in a particular sense... but thats more there than here. Also every one of the inner circles must actually be a part of the Aquaintance or Stranger circle. I'm sure most of you in a Stats or Math Modeling class have seen the graph I'm talking about. Even a Discreat Math course. Someone could probably whip it up in a program real quick. Of course we can't use the stats from before except loosely. They didn't give us a quite complete picture... which gbaji tried to capitalize on earlier.

I think what you want to do is remove the "Under Duress" outside of the circle and into a "Bad Sexual Descision" circle... except for the parts where it intersects with Violent or Forced as those would fit your definition of "Rape".

I think that what you fail to address though is the most critical element of most rape cases. Consent. Consent must be given and if it comes down to a case where it must be implied... you're fuc[u][/u]ked.

If you're with your wife, you both get wasted, go home, and have *** you're okay if she wanted to. But if she never said "yes" or otherwise gave verbal consent... then even she, your loving wife, could have a case. ***** could: does.

This is the problem I have with current Rape law. I'd discuss it with anyone who has the time or the compunction.

If none of that is what you're thinking gbaji then I guess you're a moron.

Again, Cheers.
