CDC's new rape study is out. Survey of thousands and thousands of people, statistically significant. Responses are anonymised, no one shows up at the door, no reason not to believe it's accurate. Their numbers: 19.1% of American women have been raped at one time or another during their lives; 1.7% o...

Yes. Yes it does imply that you are going to pay. You ask for the date. You pay for the date. It doesn't have to be an expensive date. It is simply not the same social context as going with your mate to the pub. You take the RISK of carrying the whole cost of the date. If she offers to pay her shar...

Sez you, kk, you're not the one raising the kid. I've seen what some parents go through and there are days when, as hard as my grind is, I'm deeply, deeply grateful not to be in their situation. OP: Yes, there is a greater risk for you than for the general population. Autism is not, however, rare at...

Jono...I understand what you're saying, but unfortunately it misses the point that exists. The OP asked whether people with AS find relationships. I'm showing that the answer seems to be yes, many do, but that there are problems in sustaining the relationships. The question is not "what is just", bu...

jono, I don't know if you realize it, but you've managed to underscore every point the NT spouses are making. You're standing there saying "this is not a problem" or "this isn't anything about AS" or "it's the right way to be" without at all addressing the fact that they're seriously problematic be...

The other thing is this. If you're that worried about being falsely accused, then perhaps you'd better start working to educate people on consent, how not to rape, and how to intervene when a situation looks bad. One of the biggest problems in rape/DV education is that guys shrug and think it's not ...

Just out of curiosity, how many times do we have to do the "in fact nearly all rape charges are substantiated, no, it's not about vengeful women just trying to f**k men over" show? I always wonder what other tinfoil-hat conspiracies the people who bring this stuff up get exercised about, and why th...

my guess is that somebody like the perp with his history of rape, should have been DNA tested to match the rape kit. If that's going to be the standard, there'll have to be provisions for actually making sure the rape kits get analyzed timely. There are cases all over the country of rape kits just ...

It's a problem at all the universities. They're all desperate for money (admittedly their idea of 'desperate' is different from most people's) and top students/faculty, so they've started spending gargantuan sums on PR and advertising. Rape, bad PR. They also have to report sexual assaults, and many...

You?ve already made it abundantly clear that, in order to be marginally safe, a man has to assume ?no? means ?no?, ?yes? means ?no?, too, and any kind of close contact with a woman means ?watch out, because, from now on, I can choose to ruin your life any time I want to by claiming you took advanta...

Everyone has problems. In my experience, modern society is sufficiently complex to cause information overload and social anxiety in the vast majority of NTs as well; people can be impulsive and crazy but it's healthier to keep in mind that people will just be people and we can always negotiate thro...
