In all these quoted statistics, I find it so harmful and misleading to not acknowledge the uncertainties. There's what we think is true, what we know is true, and what we can prove is true. Very different things. There's a whole lot we don't "know", and very little we can prove. Yet, lots of statistics get thrown around, often chosen with an agenda.
We deserve better. YOU deserve better.
On prison rape and sexual violence: www.justdetention.org
has links to a lot of studies but it's weird how there is huge variations from less than 1% to over 20% victimized. On rates, We can prove nothing except it does happen. We "know" nothing and think about it almost not at all. That's 2.4 million people, 90% men, 70% non-white, so a huge racial bias.
I've read quite a lot about ASA of males, and I don't believe any statistics have much credibility. So let's be honest about it. We are simply guessing. We don't know a thing. Sad and upsetting to me.
My opinions I guess.
