Bbc says some rape not really rape

Recommended Posts

Curiously when they were so keen on saying how rape is rape when it applies to white guys with embassy residences, but not when it applies to place with a high immigration level.

 

Tldr? Fairly sensible account of why the sex crime stats in Sweden look so much higher than elsewhere.  Sadly only published so they can try to say it's not the immigration at fault.

Yeah I actually heard a snippet from some BBC reporter a few weeks ago explaining away the high rape stats in Sweden - "it's the way they categorise rape".  The implication is that the categorisation is too loose and so some rapes are not rapes as we would describe them.  It's interesting when feminist policy (widening definition of rape) clashes with views on immigration.  Then you have the feminist Swedish cabinet wearing hijabs to show solidarity for a foreign patriarchy.  The idiocracy is in full swing.

Whoopi Goldberg would like that. She has a definition "Rape Rape" - which is proper rape. So an actor, who say, drugs a 14 year old and rapes her, well that's not Rape Rape. Interesting the feminazis of the Guardian support her view.

Indeed.

 

EDIT: That BBC piece looks more like a crib sheet for those who already have a certain view but need help in formulating arguments defending their position.

I've noticed they do similar stuff with Brexit...like "of course economic armageddon hasn't happened because Brexit hasn't happened yet".  Ignoring all the official and unofficial proclamations of imminent doom due to uncertainty and capital flight etc.  

That is uncharacteristically unfair, assuming the article is accurate. Sure, ethnicity of the accused is not published, and it is not clear that, say, a large immigrant population immediately become aware of and start following the laws of their new country (ie perhaps there's a question about how much is reported by victims from within recent immigrant groups).

But as the OP says it certainly provides a believable explanation of the recent trend. Similar to measles in some way, in the nation's couscous was vaccination saved the day but it seems it was largely dealt with prior to the start of vaccination(not an argument against vaccination!).

Is there any socially worse unjustified tag for a male to be tarred with..? Give these guys a break.

If you explicitly wanted to hide trends then the best way to do it is bugger about with the way the stats are measured and classified and then ensure there is no way to unpick them and cross compare like for like with previous measurement metrics. There are some worrying issues with censorship - for example state employees effectively look to have a mass gagging order on them in some countries to prevent them speaking out, so not beyond belief that other measures of censorship via stats is going on also.

I think the BBC makes some fair points on the matter.

However no such rigorous distinctions are made when journalists & politicians make comparisons between nations about anything else.

What does 'average' mean, for example, in average house price comparisons between countries?

What is considered 'employment' in different countries?

etc., etc.

"Is Sweden really the grenade attack capital of Europe?" (yes - presumably as there is no record of the race of perpetrators, the native Swedes must have found a sudden interest in chucking explosives around. Coming next week on BBC Fact Check(TM) hopefully).

 

Funnily enough, I've just spoken with someone who works at the Beeb. Here are some upcoming "BBC Fact Check" (TM) stories over the next few weeks:

"Does the BBC really imprison thousands of people every year for not paying the Telly Tax?"

"Does the BBC advertise almost exclusively for vacancies in the Guardian?"

"Did the BBC knowingly cover up child abuse for 3 decades?
