    My understanding is they interviewed about 10 peeps that were alleged witnesses, people that were said to have been there etc, including Mark Judge and Ford's alleged eye witness Leyland Keyser. That's all I really know about it at the moment.

    I think the problem is your arguing it doesn't exist over the semantics of what the word "culture" means.

    Note, I do not necessarily mean "you".

    All the culture I've known in my life has been anti-rape, idk maybe it's how some of you were raised?

    I’ve investigated hundreds of rapes and sexual assault cases over several years. I can count on one hand the amount of times an accusation was completely fabricated.

    Can you give a ballpark for the amount of cases that dont make it to trial or sentencing?

    Do you believe Prison rape and child rape should be included in your definition of rape culture?

    Hmm

    If only there were some common medium we all shared where for decades rape and sexual assault was presented as either a joke or a precursor to consensual sex. Some kind of... I'm not sure, popular expression of culture, I suppose? Something that was built to reflect society and hundreds of millions of people would be exposed to that repeatedly enforced the notion that rape was just part of life.

    Can't think of what that could be though so I guess that guy is right.

    I can tell you about 60% don’t even go reported.


    Wilson, LC, Miller, KE. Meta-analysis of the prevalence of unacknowledged rape. Trauma Violence Abuse. 2015; 1-11.

    I mean, if 20% of the US were werewolves, we’d consider that a culture. 20% of women are raped in their lifetime. Not a culture? Ok.

    Probably about 70ish%? I would say. Another thing people need to understand, a sexual assault or rape case not going to trial doesn’t imply innocence at all. More often than not prosecutors just don’t want to touch it because there’s just not enough there to get beyond the reasonable doubt threshold. Whether certain aspects are purely circumstantial, lack of physical evidence, or victims not wanting to testify. Everything can scream guilty, but if you can’t get that smoking gun confession or damning physical evidence it probably won’t go to court unless you got a prosecutor with balls.

    I’m kinda busy right now but that’s the gist of it in a nutshell.

    I dont think anyone's deciding Rs will still say it a corrupt institution working with the shadow government to take down the President even though they got this one right and Ds will say they're an important investigative organization even if the current WH leans on them in ways they shouldn't.
