Would Your Rape Be Counted?

Print version 

Ms. Magazine exposed the extensive implications of the FBIs forcible rape definition.

At least 1 in 6 women in the U.S. will be raped in their lifetime. An estimated 1 in 10 rape victims are male, and studies have suggested that 1 in 2 transgender people will be sexually assaulted. But unless a rape fits the FBIs 82-year-old definition, The carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will, it will never be counted in the FBIs annual Uniform Crime Report (UCR). That includes rapes of men and transgender people, as well as those involving forced anal sex, oral sex, vaginal or anal fisting, rape with a finger or an object (even if serious injuries result), and other injurious and degrading sexual assaults.
