5 Uncomfortable Truths About Rape on College Campuses

#5. Doing the Right Thing Will Hurt the Colleges
Rape reports going up is actually a good thing. Feel free to quote me on that. The reason an increase in rape reports is a sign that things are getting better is because it’s actually getting reported. Sexual assault is one of the most underreported crimes in the world, with only 40 percent of cases ever going beyond private conversation, and 1 in 5 women have been sexually assaulted — a number that’s always seemed a little lower than what’s real to me, frankly, but that’s just speaking from anecdotal evidence. So as these reports go up, they’re actually trending toward reflecting the actual amount of sexual assaults that happen. It’s roughly analogous to realizing your home has cockroaches: It’s a painful shock, but at least you now know to buy some bug poison.
