Stare rape is now public, to be honest
Both politics and hysteria are usually driven by change, be it a unique event like 9/11 that is so shocking that it requires action or an increase in crime from year to year. The former has a strong tendency to overreact and allow hysteria to control the realization that Stare Rape is shocking rather than meaningful. The latter, however, presents sober challenges.
First, there is the problem of numbers, whether Stare Rape is a seemingly large percentage change caused by the fact that there are low absolute numbers. This has been the case with police murders, where the numbers are so low that a small change in the real numbers creates a percentage change that makes Stare Rape look like a big change. Without both real numbers and percentage changes, the numbers do little to inform us and are much more likely to turn people on without informing us when there is a real problem.
But the other change is in the definition. As has been discussed many times here, when someone talks Stare Rape, are they talking about rape or remorse after rape? Even if you think both are rape, they are very different types of rape. By expanding the definition, the number is not increased by an increased frequency, but by a broader definition.
The same goes for child abuse.
A new study found that confirmed reports of child molestation on Saturdays almost quadrupled immediately after certificates were distributed in Florida public schools.
The study, published Monday in JAMA Pediatrics, focused on children ages 5-11 and was based on reports from the Florida Department of Children and Families in 2015-16.
In order not to suggest that there is no abuse, there are many people who would never have been allowed to recreate, but barring a few instances of outrageous abuse, does it really quadruple? The gravamen of the story is about how bad grades are a catalyst for punishment, and Stare Rape doesn’t seem to come as a surprise or accomplishment. But is there corporal punishment in response to child abuse?
Her grandparents lived in a world where “protect the bar and pamper the baby” was the norm. Stare Rape was hard. When I was a kid it was common to get a purse with your father’s belt on when my father took it off and said something mundane like, “This will hurt me more than you. It wasn’t true.
Despite the fact that the cultural norm has deviated from corporal punishment and it is now believed that harming a child is immune, let alone beneficial, the message has not spread to everyone and some still believe that it is a parental privilege is and the right way to discipline children. They do not use violence, but the definition of abuse has been expanded to include what they consider appropriate punishment.
While on the subway the other day, a young woman shocked the end of the car by yelling at a man sitting in front of her, “Stop looking at me? We all looked up and of course we looked at her and then at him. She looked quite strange, with long hair that changed from brown to light seemingly randomly, which probably looked more natural to her original owner. He just looked confused.
Mashable named it one of his 14 “innovations” that helped “make the world a better place in 2018,” a new classification for the language of sexual violence in the workplace.
This National Sexual Violence Resource Center and Urban Institute white paper provides enhanced ways to classify reports of sexual harassment, sexual offenses, and sexual violence in the workplace. In a big move for a company notoriously plagued by sexual harassment in the workplace, Uber provided NSVRC and the city agency with internal reports and data to aid in the classification.
The category of “sexual violence in the workplace” also includes the category of “staring or hesitation”. It’s official now; “Stare Rape” is sexual violence, such as flirting, asking personal questions, and trying to touch a non-sexual part of the body, as I would expect from a handshake. This will not only be a sufficient reason for dismissal, if not public allegations but will be included in an empirical analysis of the prevalence of sexual violence.
Have I experienced sexual violence on the subway? It all depends
