True False 11. Only young, beautiful, sexy women are raped. True False Answers: 1. C; 2. False; 3. A; 4. True; 5. A; 6. False; 7. C; 8. False; 9. C; I0. False; 1 I. False When we talk about rape these are the facts: I. Rape is an act of violence and power. It is not caused by being sexually starved. Rapists are not crazy according to psy- chological tests. 2. Rapists are more likely to use tricks, threats or physical force than guns or knives when committing a rape. 3. More than one-half of all rapes occur in the home. The next most common place for rapes to occur is in a car. 4. Males can be raped. Men are raped in the same kinds of situations as women. Men are usually raped by heterosexual men and not homosexual men. Men are less likely than women to talk about or report cases of rapes than women. 5. Most rapists are known by their victim. They are either a friend, neighbor, relative or a casual acquaintance. 6. Rape Is not just a big city problem. Rape is a problem eve- rywhere. 7. No one asks to be raped. Rape Is a violent act committed by violent people. Once a rapist has selected his victim and the time to commit the rape, it doesn't matter how the victim is dressed or whether the victim is hitchhiking, at the park or at the beach. Rapists who say they raped someone because the vic- tim was dressed a certain way are saying that to save their necks. In addition, most teenage victim of rape were wearing jeans when the rape took place. 8. You cannot tell a rapist from a normal person. Rapists look like everyone else. They come from all races, religions, occupations, social classes and are both men and women. Again, men are usually raped by other men. 9. Most rapists are between 15 and 35 years old. i0. Statistics show there are no more false reports of rape than there are for any other crime. Most rape victims do not report the crime. II. Rape victims are of all races, colors, creeds, religions, social and economic back- grounds, and of all ages. Rape can happen to anyone, at any time and at any place. Statistics on rape show: 36% of rapes take place in the home. 75% of rapes are committed by people who know each other. 78% of white victims were raped by a white man. 70% of black victims were raped by a black man. 52% of convicted rapists will be arrested again within three years. 20% of single-offender rapes (gang rapes) are committed by rapists who are under 21. 62% of multiple offender rapes are committed by rapists who are under 21. 30% of rapes are committed by someone using a weapon: of that 30% guns were used 25% of the time and knives were used 44% of the time. Rape is not a crime of sex. Rape is a crime of violence. I've heard people say that rape is a sick act committed by sane people. This may be true. In the United States, the rate at which rape is committed is four times higher than Germany, 13 times higher than England, and 20 times higher than Japan Also in the U. S., rape has increased four times faster than the overall crime rate over the last ten years. Three out of four women will be the targets of at least one violent crime during their lives. By the time you finish reading this article, one woman or young girl will have been raped. Rape happens every six minutes somewhere in this country, maybe even next door.
