The Bat Part 5

So in college I remember getting this email about how 1 in 5 women will be raped in her lifetime or already has been. It was not great science or math, because they had a very broad definition of rape including getting drunk, having relations and then deciding it had been a bad idea in the morning. However regardless of that, even if it's true, I think it's important to remember that this does not mean all men are evil, as the person sending this email around campus tried to claim. It means that 80% of women won't be molested in their lifetimes and if you taken into account that, like divorce, you have certain people doing the same thing to multiple others, this puts your evil male percentage at 10% at worst, probably a lot less and the whole thing just proves that most people, male and female, are actually decent, kind human beings. I'm not always a cup half full person, but I find that often talk on inflammatory topics chooses to frame things in the most distressing light possible.
