    Sexual Assault Rate Reported at Duke Five Times as High as Most Dangerous City in US

    Sexual Assault Rate Reported at Duke Five Times as High as Most Dangerous City in US

    “But 88% of Women Feel Safe.”

    If this is true, why would anyone send their daughter to Duke University?

    KC Johnson reports at Minding the Campus:

    Duke Reports a Sexual Assault Rate 5 X as High as Our Most Dangerous City

    Over the last few years, we have become all but immune to what, under any other circumstances, would be a fantastic claim—that one in five female undergraduates will be victims of sexual assault. This rate would translate to several hundreds of thousands of violent crime victims (with almost all of the incidents unnoticed) annually, and, as Emily Yoffe has pointed out, implies that about the same percentage of female college students are sexually assaulted as women in the Congo where rape was used as a war crime in the nation’s civil war.

    Even within this environment of pie-in-the-sky statistics, a recent survey from Duke stands out. According to the survey, 40 percent of Duke’s female undergraduates (and 10 percent of Duke’s male undergraduates) describe themselves as victims of sexual assault. This data would mean that each year, a female undergraduate at Duke is 5.5 times more likely to be a victim of violent crime than a resident of St. Louis, which FBI statistics listed as the nation’s most dangerous city in 2016. And yet, incredibly, parents still spend around $280,000 to send their daughters into this den of crime for four years.

    But 88% of Women Feel Safe.

    This is not surprising at all. In the current “perpetual victim” mentality on campus, you need some kind of victim status to have any credibility at all. At the top are the minority Lesbian paraplegics who have been sexually assaulted. At the bottom are the straight, non-minority boys, who have to pretend to be part Indian like Elizabeth Warren, or else pretend to be gay or sexually assaulted.
    The girls can easily make themselves think they have been sexually assaulted, which is much easier than pretending to be gay. Besides, with the current campus definition of “Regret equals Rape”, every girl can easily feel she’s been raped. This attitude dilutes the harm of REAL rapes, and probably makes real rapes less likely to be reported.

    [sarcasm]
    Sexual assault at Duke is 5.5 times higher than that of the most dangerous city in the U.S.? I believe it. There has been at least a decade of proven sexual assault/rape cases at Duke, so this is easy to believe. Remember back in ’06 when DA Mike Nifong proved beyond doubt that the Duke Lacrosse team viciously gang-raped that stripper?

    These surveys mean nothing. If a person was really sexually assaulted there should be a police report. If it was not reported then it didn’t happen.
