25% Of Asian Men Are Not Rapists
So 1/10 men in asia has had sex with a woman when he knew she didn’t really want to, and they are counting that as rape. 1/4 men if you count things they did with their wives and girlfriends.
One of the questions, which they were brave enough to admit, was as follows:
“Have you ever had sex with your partner when you knew she didn’t want to but you thought she should agree because she’s your wife/ partner?”
That is an absurd thing to count as rape. That question does not ask about consent; that question asks about her desire to have sex, rather than anything related to consent. If she agrees to the sex but doesn’t really feel like having sex, then they are counting that as a rape. Dislike of what you got is not grounds for a rape charge. Discomfort with the situation you agreed to is not grounds for a rape charge.
Frankly I’m surprised the number is as low as 25% for that activity. Plenty of people get pressured into sex for reasons other than ‘really horney’; money for prostuites (sometimes wives), filial duty, desire to impress the man, desire for a baby, peer pressure, being afraid of dying a virgin, or as little as not really caring. To count those things as ‘rape’ is to demean the word rape and all the women and men out there who suffer from real rape.
This 1/4 number is exactly the same problem with the RAINN 1/4 women and 1/6 males statistic. Everything under the sun is counted as rape, even when it’s not rape according to any commonly used definition. 17 year old with her 18 y-o boyfriend? RAPE! Smoke a joint before getting it on? RAPE!
I’m sorry, that stuff just isn’t rapey enough to be real rape in my book.
