"Rape Culture" Is A Made-up Concept Concocted By Someone Sick

What kind of person would make up a lie like this?  "Rape culture"?  Just the thought of it is sick, and it takes a sick mind to entertain that it's real.
The Washington Post has helpfully compiled a table, using Clery Act statistics, of allegations of campus sexual assaults in 2012 (the last year for which figures are available, including all schools with 1000 or more students). To put it mildly, the data do not substantiate White House claims of a virtually unprecedented violent crime wave on today’s college campuses. The data also, as Reason has observed, suggest that reports of sexual assault are on the decline, further calling into question the “rape culture” panic that has emerged since the 2011“Dear Colleague” letter.
If it were real I'd suggest that most high school counselors are accessories to rape, seeing as how they push kids to go to college.

Anyway, it's amazing what you can uncover when you actually seek out the data and apply some of that skepticism that journalists used to be known for.

As someone pointed out: rape culture is what's happening in Iraq, not Iowa State.
