    It's not an unreasonable proposition, nor impossible given the nature of the data, when you consider that the OP's primary contention is:

    "people on here think rape is something that is only done by ethnic minority men"
    I think the issue is firstly that you are taking the words to be absolutely literal, which I think most people can see is not that case, and secondly that you seem to think that OP would actually want to quote and shame individuals.

    Are you trying to debate whether her impressions of some people on TSR are valid, or whether migrants are actaully more likely to rape? Becuase debating both at the same time is not going to work well, in all likelihood.

    Provide evidence or no-one will take your thread seriously

    You'd know that how? Because of some pro-Saudi mainstream media reports about them allowing a few women to vote? :holmes:

    "Footage of the boy and six others, the oldest aged 25, dancing, laughing and singing in Arabic around their victim who was lying passed out. The men then pulled down her underwear, pushed her legs apart, and groped and raped her"

    "One is said to have told investigators:'She has nothing to complain about. Women must obey men'"

    "Another said that gang rape was the most natural thing in the world"
    How exactly? This is an issue I am addressing which I've come across whilst interacting with people. I'm not just pulling this **** out of thin air honey

    I'm middle eastern sweet cheeks,grew up in the culture,speak the language. I'm pretty sure I know it very well. I'm not talking about Saudia Arabia. I'm talking about the rest of the Middle East. If it was full of rapists and misogynists,I would've been raped and killed for showing some skin a long time ago.

    So what if they were singing in Arabic? If a black man or a group of black guy or Asian guys start taping a girl,does it mean it's acceptable in their culture? No! It just means they deserve to die for being evil

    If the OP didn't mean what she actually wrote then methinks she could be expected to have corrected herself when challenged on the contention, as written, as hers was demonstrably pretty categorical statement

    that you seem to think that OP would actually want to quote and shame individuals
    I expect anyone making such a bold, and controversial proposition, in relation to contributors to this site, to be prepared to actually cite examples, from said site, aye. Not an unreasonable expectation, as many would have it

    Provide quotes that are demonstrative of, or at the very least indicative of, your primary contention

    If it was full of rapists and misogynists, I would've been raped and killed for showing some skin a long time ago
    Please quote me where I proposed that the Middle East is "full of rapists and misogynists"

    So what if they were singing in Arabic?
    See each of the excerpt quotes, in combination, for a clue as to the cultural-ideological undertones (normalisation of rape e.g. 'rape culture'). You're smart enough to connect the dots, and intellectually honest enough to acknowledge them as well as the fact that they present an issue for these types of cultures (as you have done, explicitly, in the past)

    It just means they deserve to die for being evil
    Those don't sound like the words of a Christian

    I don't know why some people on here think rape is something that is only done by ethnic minority men( in the recent migrant crisis situation) and that it's only exclusive to ethnic cultures. So,did rapes not occur before there was any mixing of cultures in Britain and Europe as a whole? Rape is NOT exclusive to any culture. Or acceptable in middle eastern culture as some of you know think you're an expert on because of what you read in the news and any other cultures.

    Rant over
    A bit off-topic, but if we are going to talk about rape and culture, I think it is an issue that needs addressing. So, I wished to ask your opinion on the issue of marital rape. If we look at a list of countries where marital rape is illegal, one would notice that there is a substantial lack of representation of Middle Eastern countries. Why do you think this is so?

    Why are you being so difficult about this issue?

    It was more of a rhetorical question actually. I wanted you to think about your answer.

    Oh what does it sound like? I am a Christian as hard as it may be for you to believe that.

    There was no question posed, it was a statement of fact, plain and simple. Backtracking now will not win you any intellectual credibility I'm afraid, better to either come up with the proof or else accept that this contention is interpretive and as yet unsubstantiated opine

    I'm not backing down because I feel deeply about this. I had to address the issue.

    Why do I feel like you have something to say about me being a Christian? Coz if you do you might as well go and say it right now

    Again this comes down to what I said initially - perhaps you require clear evidence that TSR has a reasonably-sized minority that spout anti-migrant rhetoric, many wouldn't.

    I'm still surprised that you want clear evidence before the good name of a minority of people on an internet forum can be called into question, yet you're happy to use anecdotal accounts to cast aspersions on a fairly significant portion of the entire human race.

    You didn't have to address the issue of trolls.

    In fact by going on a rant about them they have succeeded in their primary goal, to rustle jimmies. And your jimmies have been severely rustled.

    They don't care about rape or the victims, they only care that the rapist is a non-European. If a white man raped someone they wouldn't care.

    But these guys are a small number of people who keep posting the same thing constantly.
