Rape, By The Numbers.
everyone needs to see this graphic
I linked this to my guy friends who always use the excuse of “What about the false reports? It’s not fair that innocent men are accused of a crime they didn’t commit”
2 out of 1000. 0.02% Of all rapes are false.
Imma have to shut this down.
Ninety-six percent of the reported perpetrators of rape are white, eighty percent of the men in prison for rape are black.
Rape is only against the law because white men wanted a way to persecute and prosecute black men who slept with white women.
Thats right, rape is only a crime in the US to put black men who had consensual sex with white women in jail.
You want to talk about rape culture?
Lets talk about the fact that these statistics in the pic are used by radical feminists to accuse transgender women of rape by simply existing. Go look and find any notable trans advocate who is a trans woman, some radfem is out there accusing them of some kind of sexual offence, and that trans women are stereotyped as rapists.
To create an environment of fear against transgender women and black men.
Lets talk about how these statistics only really apply to cis men vs cis women
Lets talk about the fact that most of the men exonerated of rape charges by DNA testing after they have already been convicted are black.
You want to help end rape culture? End white cis supremacy. White cis women are in on this too you know.
Every single fucking time a white cis guy is accused of something everyone rushes to defend him, including people who know these statistics. Every. Single. Time.
Yet if a trans woman is accused *on the internet* by anonymous people its torches and pitchforks time.
See you look at these statistics and they erase race, gender identity, age and other important factors so you only see numbers. And after that your biases fill in the blanks, that’s deliberate.
Yeah one in 6 cis women have been raped and thats terrible but 67 motherfucking percent of trans women have been raped or sexually assaulted, most of them trans women of color.
So before you go rush off to fight rape culture the white cis woman way, remember who pays for it.
Remember who is being erased.
Power dynamics matter even in rape culture.
Transmisogyny matters and white supremacy matters. This is just another branch of the tree of white cis supremacy.
