So which game has crazier update notes? Dwarf Fortress or The Sims?
As an experiment
I’ve read many times on my dash as of late that males that have glasses are more attractive then those that do not. To test this
and as an excuse to torture you with my visage I have taken 2 selfies 1 with and 1 without glasses.
Questions, comments, and/or concerns?
Because not enough people see this.
You know, it’s hard to tell for certain the actual numbers because rape is one of the most underreported crimes and is difficult to get an exact number. The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) — an annual crime report conducted through household surveys by the U.S. Census Bureau for the Bureau of Justice Statistics — counted 188,380 victims of rape and sexual assault in 2010. Data from the FBI, which gathers its statistics on rape or attempted rape reported as a crime by local law enforcement, counted only 85,593 in 2010. Either someone’s not counting properly, or there seems to be a problem with the methods of collecting and analyzing data about rapes.
Either way, the “1 in 3 women will be raped or sexually assaulted in her lifetime” just simply can’t be accurate because the numbers just do not add up. Like do you realize how many women would have to be raped for that to be true? If they are saying 33% of women in the United States are raped in their lifetime, that number is 52,866,666 women (there are 158.6 million women in the US). If there were around 85,593 rapes reported by the FBI in 2010, even if all of these rapes were women, then it would take over 600 years for that number to reach 52.86 million women. To reach the statistic of “52.86 million women have been raped,” you’d have to have a rape incidence rate of 528,666 women per year (using 100 years, a very generous estimate as the “lifetime occurrence” baseline). That’s more than the UN report covering incidence rate of rape in 65 different countries.
Rape is a major problem and very serious crime that needs to be dealt with, and it’s unfortunate that we can’t ever give completely accurate statistics on how prevalent it is. But spreading false statistics and sensationalizing the idea that all women should be living in constant fear is not going to help deal with the problem.
