Rape, By The Numbers.
everyone needs to see this graphic
I linked this to my guy friends who always use the excuse of “What about the false reports? It’s not fair that innocent men are accused of a crime they didn’t commit”
2 out of 1000. 0.02% Of all rapes are false.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MAD I AM RIGHT NOW.
That math is wrong. 2/1000=0.2%
This whole thing is wrong.
- The “falsely accused” should be in the “reported” category”, as it is a subset. Of the “reported but not accused”, and “faced trial but not jailed”, at least some of those should also be included in the “falsely accused” group.
This is like the recent problem in my stats class, where 200 adults were surveyed, and 110 drank coffee, 50 drank tea, and 90 drank cola. The key is that there’s overlap in the groups, and this chart doesn’t represent that.
- Claiming that huge number as the number of rapists is purely speculation. If only so many are reported, then what supports the claim that there are something like eight times that number that actually happen?
- The overall design of the chart is bad. Since the category represented uses two units, and all other categories are divisible by two, it visually inflates the numbers, where a more accurate representation would show smaller groups. Not factually wrong, but it plays off people’s perceptions, and show that the purpose of this is emotional influence rather than objective reporting.
Also, though the debunking states the false claims to be from 2-8%, there are a lot of studies showing it to be anywhere from 2-28%
leave it to tumblr to spread false bullshit while actual factual posts get little to no notes

I BEG OF YOU TO READ THIS ENTIRE THING THROUGH. I KNOW IT’S LONG, BUT I PUT A LOT OF WORK INTO IT AND I ASSURE YOU THAT IT’LL BLOW YOUR MIND.
After seeing Maritova’s post (thank you!) that pointed out a familiar figure in the background of the newest episode, Dreamscaperers, I decided to, yet again, make a theory post.
The theory in question is the famous (amongst Fallers) Stan twin theory. At first, I didn’t really put too much faith in it, since it surfaced during the earlier days of GF.
But now I’ve seen enough evidence to convince me that Yes: Stan did have a twin. And I use the past tense ‘did’ for a reason. ;)
Anyways, I’ll look in depth into all of the evidence, stack it up, relate it to Dipper and Mabel’s twin relationship, and then apply the theory to other parts of the show (namely the symbols on Bill’s Summoning Wheel).
WARNING! There are spoilers for both Dreamscaperers and that super-spoiler screenshot that leaked earlier in the year. If you haven’t seen either of them, I beg of you: DO NOT READ MY POST. ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LEAKED SCREENSHOT. IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY, DON’T GO LOOKING FOR IT OR I’LL SIC BUFFALOS UPON YOU.
