69. Sexual assaults have been HALVED since 1993!
How? Well, no one can say for sure, but making the legal system tougher on rapists and getting the word out, via laws and schools and colleges, that it's NOT OKAY to rape women seems to have done some good.

Men are not "bad," but they are biologically prone to be more violent. Personally, I don't want to change the biology of men (I love men as they are) BUT we can adapt our society to simply NOT permit certain behaviors.

Call me an idealist, but I think that some social problems can be solved via legislation and education.
