This is my Rape Whistle --1,000,000 Patriots....Colorado Liberal Democrat State Rep Joe Salazar, Give Women Whistles Not Guns; You May Not Actually be at Risk of Rape

Townhall During a discussion on FOX News The Five about concealed carry on college campuses, liberal co-host Bob Beckel demonstrated his complete ignorance regarding the sexual violence that Women face particularly on campuses saying, “When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?”

Just because each and every rape on/off college campuses does not receive widespread spread media attention does not mean its not happening. Here are just a few statistics from NYU’s Student Health Center Mr. Beckel may want to familiarize himself with:

  • 1 in 4 College aged Women report experiences that meet the legal definition of rape or attempted rape;
  • 1 in 5 Women are raped during their college years;
  • Most survivors of sexual assaults are full-time students, approximately 1/3 of them are first year students between the ages of 17 and 19 years old;
  • 81% of Women who were stalked by a current or former partner were also physically assaulted by that same partner;
  • 80 to 90% of sexual assaults are perpetrated by an individual known by the survivor;
  • 1 in 12 college aged men admitted committing acts that met the legal definition of rape;
  • 35% of men report some likelihood that they would rape if they could be assured they wouldn’t be caught or punished;
  • Fewer than 5% of attempted or committed rapes are reported to law enforcement.

Also disturbing, was the fact that serial misogynist Bob Beckel seemed to downplay a Women’s right to self-defense in cases of date rape. Regardless of who is attempting to rape a Woman on a college campus, or anywhere, she should be entitled to defend herself and university policies ought to reflect as much. As Townhall’s Katie Pavlich reported here on Wednesday, an emergency call box and safe zones do nothing to help victims of rape.
