Rapists Everywhere (1-in-5)

Barb Wire

St. Mary’s College of California is a private school where annual tuition is $41,380, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Of the 3,055 students who attend Saint Mary’s, 41% are male and 59% are female. As an exercise in understanding the “campus rape epidemic” that feminists assure us is a nationwide scourge, let’s apply the notorious 1-in-5 statistic to Saint Mary’s.

By my calculation (59% of 3,055) there are 1,802 females enrolled at Saint Mary’s. The 1-in-5 number means that 20% of these (360) will have been raped by a fellow student before they graduate.

This in turn would mean that, if we suppose that about a quarter of the female students graduate each year, then there are approximately 450 females in the senior class, of whom 90 are rape victims.

Could this be true?

Well, in September 2011, police investigated two separate rapes reported by Saint Mary’s students in the span of two weeks. The college’s Student Coalition Against Rape (“a peer education and outreach team that is dedicated to ending gender based violence”) clearly have their work cut out for them, battling the pro-rape coalition on campus.

Women students at Saint Mary’s who are victimized by male student predators can call a 24-hour Campus Assault Resources and Empowerment (CARE) telephone hotline.

About 10 victims a month or two a week during a nine-month school year because, of course: 1-in-5.

It seems shocking that parents would spend more than $40,000 a year to send their daughters to a place where rape is so common.

However, I guess the parents who spend more than $40,000 a year to send their sons to Saint Mary’s must figure that’s just one of the benefits provided by this Catholic private school.
