In other percentage news, I hate 100% of this group. To be fair, holy fuck, they are asking for it.

And one in eight thought a victim who dances in a provocative manner on a night out is also to blame for any consequences.

Okay, neat.  Gotta go shoot myself in the face now.  Girl power!!! (This is why we can’t have nice things, not get raped, etc).  Fucking. People.

You make me want to live in bed.  I’m disgusted and sad and angry.  That’s interesting though.  I vaguely bet the other 46-or-so% HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN RAPED. Because it happens all the time.  Which is horrifying.  But this attitude is somehow even worse to me at this second.  It’s turning my stomach.

Fuck you people.

Sidenote: it’s not like their methods were scientific, so I’m not going to pretend that really half of all women could think this, BUT STILL.
