    Rape is not taken seriously in UK. It is hardly covered in the UK by media or other organisations. Most people were not aware of these stats which proves that it is being brushed aside. It has become normal for women in UK to be raped or sexually assaulted. They are terrified to walk alone at night.

    I do, it is just that poor attempts at it are hard to distinguish, especially when all you have to go on is just a line of text.

    Approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales alone every year; that's roughly 11 rapes (of adults alone) every hour

    Nearly half a million adults are sexually assaulted in England and Wales each year 1 in 5 women aged 16 - 59 has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 16

    Only around 15% of those who experience sexual violence choose to report to the police

    Approximately 90% of those who are raped know the perpetrator prior to the offence


    http://rapecrisis.org.uk/statistics.php


    Why is rape and sexual assaults rampant in the u.k?

    Also why is this not being adressed properly? Media and organisations are not highlighting it or doing anything much to tackle these shockingly high amounts of rape and sexual assaults. No one in UK protests about it which shows they are totally fine with it.

    Is it because it's so normal that it's just how things are and that its just part of British culture?

    No wonder that women in the u.k are petrified to walk alone at night.
    Well if you left wingers stopped blocking a return of the death penalty for things like rape it would drastically reduce the number but oh I forgot in your world the rights of the offender > the victim's rights

    I'm not saying it's perfect but you can't seriously say women are afraid of walking in the night ..

    Rape cases against women are almost always highlighted . I'm dubious of that 1 in 5 figure.

    a rape culture is a culture in which rape is considered normal and accepted. The UK is not a rape culture because rape is illegal and people are sent to prison for raping, and can have their lives ruined simply for being accused of rape.

    also, having high rape statistics doesn't necessarily mean that there is a rape culture. The rape issue may be a serious problem, but that doesn't mean that it's accepted culturally. The only thing that could prove the UK to be a rape culture would be a scientific survey of people's views on rape.

    So you're wrong.

    The point is that he uk has shockingly high amounts of rape and sexual assaults which is not being taken seriously, which means it will continue to be like this and probably even increase constantly.

    Most of the rape is done by someone known to the victim. 90% of it is so that theory is wrong.

    Look at the reoffending rates for UK prisons; they are such soft touches. If someone is guilty of rape make them have a proper sentence rather than a few years which they can cut in half for good behaviour.

    leftie liberal claptrap where the criminals are also victims-victims of poverty, blah blah blah.

    You want to stop rape, drugs, etc etc? Give proper sentences. That will a) deter people or b) if it doesn't deter them it will keep them off the streets in any case.

    Take away all the false accusations from the total number and the real value will be less than a half of that. Also, it is not that bad if you look at the statistics in India.

    then you should take "rape culture" out of the title and OP, because it's incorrect and misleading.

    anyway, what makes you think that it isn't being taken seriously? are you saying that the justice system is failing in this department?

    UK stats are much worse, uk official rate of rape is 28 per 100,000, india is 2 per 100,000.
