i wonder how many people i’m in the “i’d be down if you asked” zone with

who has ever thought this ever
Don’t let your children drink water it might make them think drinking other clear liquids is okay do you want your child drinking bleach
don’t let your children walk, it might make them think its okay to walk away from home
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure not even people who use heroin believe it is beneficial.
Don’t let your child breathe air. Studies have shown thatin the event of a fire, children who breathe in air are much more likely to breathe in smoke than children who’ve never breathed air.
Don’t have a child. 100% of children grow up and die. You’re literally condemning your own children to die.
i either read for 4 hours straight or dont read for 4 months there is no in between
Rape Culture? What is this “Rape Culture” you speak of?
Seriously though, this is terrifying. God forbid I wear a skirt outside — I’m just ASKING to be raped if I do that.
The 58% statistic actually terrifies me more than any other. Suddenly change the word and you don’t care?
No one will ever be able to convince me that words hold no power.
this makes me sick to my stomach with anger and fear
I’m waiting for to see: “It’s only 83.5%, not all men are like that”
Wait, so only 16.5% of men know that rape is wrong and that no one ever deserves to be raped?
THAT is terrifying.

I don’t understand the hysteria people are indulging in without thinking these statistics through, or, to be more specific, the complete lack of context.
First, these statistics come from a book written in 1999, mentioned in the bottom of the graphic. As such, I don’t have access to the complete context of these statistics (though anyone willing to give us access to the book would be appreciated). From the start, these statistics are outdated, since they existed more than 20 years ago and could be older still, depending on where the book sources them from. These statistics don’t reflect on the present in any way, so there’s no use getting worked up about them as if they apply to now.
Second, there are too many questions about the survey itself. Where was it conducted? How many people were asked? How did they ask the questions? How were the questions phrased? Was there someone available to clarify the meaning of questions? Were the questions at all leading? Could the percentages have been skewed or rounded up at all?
All of these questions need to be answered before the value of these statistics can be determined. At the moment, they might as well be invented off the top of someone’s head. They are meaningless until context can be given for them so that they can be fully assessed.
In other words, relax. These statistics don’t indicate anything worth worrying about, so chill out about it. You’re not in any more danger than you were before you read them.
This image is a great example of why Tumblr is so effective for spreading fake information. There is absolutely no proof that any of this is true, except a small citation at the bottom that is unprovable unless, god forbid, you pic up the book yourself and read it. This tumblr blog post explains the ridiculousness of this post pretty well
How many ‘college men’ were in the study? What percentage of colleges were polled? Was there a control group? How was the data collected? Was the study done in America or the UK? India? China? What year? Who would walk into a focus group and say “I would like to rape people”? There has to be a PDF of the experiment data around here somewhere. You can’t publish without showing your research, right? 83.5 is incredibly close to 100%. It’s 8 out of 10. Do you really believe that 8 out of 10 men think “Some women look like they are asking to be raped”?
Of course you do. You read an ifographic [sic] on Tumblr so it must be true.
