88. Oooooh, I miswrote the stat in my response, therefore, it's not something you'll comment on
The statistic remains the same. Less than one percent of rapists are successfully convicted and serve time behind bars. Sixty percent of rapes are not even reported.

>Third, I reject the idea that it is bad form to object to frequent coverup of the rape of boys.<

What is your point?

>Is an eyewitness to a child rape more or less likely to report it to police if the victim is a boy? The answer is definitely, demonstrably and obviously less.<

Oh, I see. In other words, you believe that what happened at Penn State can be extrapolated to the entire country.

News for you: Rape is rape. SIXTY PERCENT go unreported in this country because of the re-victimization of the victim via the court system. I cited ONE link after a one-minute Google search. I can cite plenty more, but you are too busy pushing your own agenda to acknowledge your bias.

I'd also like to echo other posters on this thread: Get some help.
