15 Parallelism between switches and bisexuals: Breaking Binary Boundaries

16 There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

17  “Among male college students, 51% indicated that they would rape a woman if they thought they could get away with it”

18  Men read a rape scenario and then indicated whether they were likely to behave as the rapist did if assured that they would not be punished.  Scale: 1 (0%) to 5 (100%)

20  “Among male college students, 51% indicated that they would rape a woman if they thought they could get away with it”

21

22  146 respondents  53% female, 47% male  Ages  Slavery relationship 3 weeks to 22 years

23 “Mundane behaviors such as being able to go out alone, when and what to eat, where to sit, and what to wear … become tinged with SM undertones by virtue of the continuing dynamic among participants.”

24  74% “had engaged in behavior that had seemed inconceivable at the start of the relationship”

25

26  88% satisfied or completely satisfied with the relationship

27 “There is no reason to believe that these ‘slaves’ need saving or freeing. There is no indication that they are more likely to be abused than in other relationships. It would appear that some of the shock from disclosing participation in this type of relationship relates to the terms used to describe the relationship, rather than the actual behavior within the relationship.”
