With the subdued public release of the error-riddled “documentary” The Hunting Ground, Title IX activists, opportunistic politicians, and the lockstep media repeated the assertion that college campuses are places where testosterone-raged young men prey on poor, unsuspecting young women.
However, especially when it comes to progressives, there’s usually a side of the story not headlined because it would poke a huge hole in their cause.
A former Virginia Tech student has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for the 2014 murder of another female student, who she brutally strangled after the victim wrote their lesbian fling off as an ‘experiment.’
This is NOT an isolated, freak incident and women aren’t always these frail Bambis, unexpectedly pounced upon and torn apart by vicious male wolves.
Statistics have shown that lesbian people experience domestic violence at a very similar rate to that of heterosexual women (Waldner-Haygrud, 1997; AVP, 1992). It has been estimated that between 17-45% of lesbians have been the victim of at least one act of violence perpetrated by a female partner (Burke et al, 1999; Lie et al, 1991), and that 30% of lesbians have reported sexual assault / rape by another woman (Renzetti, 1992).
Taking the percentage fluctuation into account, those numbers are much higher than the embellished 1-in-5 stat tossed around by the Title IX exploiters, and the federal government has even taken notice.
Many incidents of intimate partner violence include some form of sexual assault. According to the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, “bisexual women experienced significantly higher lifetime prevalence of rape and other sexual violence by an intimate partner when compared to heterosexual women” and “significantly higher lifetime prevalence of rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner when compared to lesbian and heterosexual women.” Some studies indicate that between 20 and 35 percent of LGBTQ couples experience domestic violence.
Of course, this is not to diminish ACTUAL sexual assault incidents when they happen, but it’s also clear gay domestic violence appears to not only be at a higher rate than that of the male-on-female, “campus rape culture” epidemic, but it’s consciously under-reported by activists and their media because “victimization” is a big money business and something as irrelevant as LGBTQ “intimate partner” violence will not be allowed to turn off that (cash and sympathy) spigot.
This is our first public discussion, a discussion that we agreed is necessary to illustrate the pervasive nature of the “culture of rape” and the need for the entire LGBTQ community to be allies to all survivors.
Nowhere in that advocacy Huffington Post piece is the issue of LGBTQ domestic violence even inferred.
We expect lies and deception from the activist left. Be prepared to be called on it.
