And people say rape culture isn’t real.
Since Tumblr is infamous for reblogging shit all over the place that is completely false, I decided to snoop around for info on the original poll.
The website listed at the bottom is not a promising start…
More digging shows that, apparently, she did release a study on this… back in the 70s.
Other than the two citations above, I have found literally nothing about this poll.
Considering that, in my search, I have come across close to no information about the poll (other than what’s listed here), I’m really not inclined to believe these numbers.
There’s also the matter of how many high school students were polled. If it was just a small group (say, a few hundred), these numbers really don’t prove anything on a large scale.
Context would be nice.
The fact that they interview 14 year olds and expect them to have any understanding of what they’re answering and/or how the data is being used just screams bias.
