College Rape Game Day

Sexual assualt on campus has been a popular topic of conversation – especially this year, when it’s become more prevalent (or at least more publicized) – and new research reveals some alarming information: college boys are most likely to rape someone on game day.

According to Think Progress, “the study found that on any game day at Division 1 colleges, the number of rapes reported by victims between the ages of 17 and 24 spiked 28 percent in the local policing area. The reports grew to 41 percent on home games.”

Montana State University’s Isaac Swensen elaborates saying, Division 1 football games “offer a clear instance [when] partying is intensified.”

This makes sense, considering the amount of college students there are pre gaming into oblivion before a big game, but alcohol should never be used as an excuse – for anything.

The report also found that home games are the most dangerous venues.

For home games, reports of rape by an unknown offenders increased 61 percent, while reports of attacks by known offenders grew 28 percent.

In simpler terms, this report insinuates that football games are responsible for 253 and 770 additional rapes every year in the areas of 128 Division 1 schools.

So how should this be solved? Should alcohol be banned from sporting events? Sound off in the comments below.
