216. Of course
Logically, all rapists view porn does not support all watchers of porn = rapists. However, even correlations can give us a starting point for issues to address.

Again, we're not talking about looking at one perpetrator and identifying the issues discovered there as a means to label an entire problem. We're (well, I'm) just looking to see if there are patterns so we can address underlying causes rather than just punish offending individuals after the fact. The idea is to protect rather than simply punish. Causation and correlation garnered from the answers to the questions asked can then be studied and, if found valid, acted upon - positively, not punatively.

(Just to be clear, I am also using a hypothetical to address your point. I'm not sure, and highly doubt, that all rapists watch porn. Again, rape is an act of power, not sex therefore it stands to reason that not all those who commit acts in an attempt to demostrate their power necessarily even equate it with sex never mind porn.)
