Sexual predating statistics
As she sees it, feminism has fought long and hard to fight rape myths—that if a woman gets raped it’s somehow her fault, that she welcomed it in some way. Taken as a whole, the reports we examine document surprisingly significant prevalence of female-perpetrated sexual victimization, mostly against men and occasionally against women.”Those conclusions are grounded in striking numbers.But the same conversation needs to happen for men.”This awareness-raising need not come at the expense of women victimized by sexual violence, Stemple emphasized to Rosin, because “compassion is not a finite resource.” She also began to wonder, if men were victims of sexual violence far more often than was previously known by researchers, who were the perpetrators? The authors first present what they learned from the The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, an ongoing, nationally representative survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that measures both lifetime victimization and victimization within the 12 months prior to questioning.and the availability of technology and access to these sites for a majority of children.This chapter will give brief insight into the real numbers of online predation attempts, kidnappings, and cyberbullying cases, as well as some information about new and upcoming dangers that children may be susceptible to.This statistic goes hand in hand with educating your kids about online safety, as"65% of online sex offenders used the victim’s social networking site to gain home and school information, [and] 26% of [the] offenders used the [the sites] to gain information about the victim’s whereabouts at a specific time." Due to these staggering statistics, it is crucial that children are informed about the dangers of using social networking sites and posting personal information that can harm them.
“Stemple is a longtime feminist who fully understands that men have historically used sexual violence to subjugate women and that in most countries they still do. “We therefore believe that this article provides more definitive estimates about the prevalence of female sexual perpetration than has been provided in the literature to date.
Perception of Internet danger has been heightened thanks to the TV show "To Catch a Predator" and inaccurate reports stating that "one in five children have been sexually solicited by a predator." That statistic is a misquote from a 2000 study by the Crimes Against Children Research Center.
The data (which, based on a 2005 follow-up study, was revised to one in seven) is based on a survey that asked teens if they had in the last year received an unwanted sexual solicitation.
"Almost all youth handled the solicitations easily and effectively" and "extremely few youth (two out of 1,500 interviewed) were actually sexually victimized by someone they met online," reported the authors of the study.
Other studies have shown that "the stereotype of the Internet child molester who uses trickery and violence to assault children is largely inaccurate" (Wolak, Finkelhor & Mitchell, 2004).
