The problem of unisex bathrooms and male perverts

first_imgThe Federalist 9 February 2017Voyeurism is an enormous monster that lives in the shadows of our culture, continually nourished by advancing technology, pervasive pornography, and increasing opportunity.It Happens More Than You ThinkInherent in the question “How can we get men to stop doing this?” is the question of prevalence. Is voyeurism widespread, or limited to a few scattered predators? A look at the literature and studies on voyeurism reveals surprisingly little. In a day and age where every topic has seemingly been studied in minute detail, there is a glaring paucity of good information on the subject.But the data that does exist is eye-opening. Templeman (1991) found that no less than 42 percent of college men in a rural sample reported that they had engaged in voyeurism. Bradford et al. (1992) reported that “of 443 adult males studied, 115 admitted to voyeurism” (cited from Krueger, 2016). Rye & Meaney (2007) found that 61 percent of the men in their university sample would engage in voyeurism if the likelihood of getting caught was 25 percent (cited from Krueger, 2016).These enormous percentages suggest that voyeurism is far more prevalent than commonly thought. It’s not only because of the amount of men who are voyeurs or express voyeuristic desire, but also because of the amount of acts committed by those who are recognized as paraphilic (anomalous or deviant in their sexual behavior). Langstrom & Seto (2006) cite a 1988 study of sexual deviants by Abel, “Exhibitionistic and voyeuristic acts occurred up to 150 times more often than official police arrest statistics indicated.”We see this not only in the literature, but also in the news. In May 2016, David Walker (archived) was convicted of voyeuristic activities, including filming “hundreds of women in swimming pool changing rooms,” most of which probably occurred in unisex facilities, a common layout in public pools in the United Kingdom.In December 2015, George Thomas was convicted of voyeurism after police found personally filmed voyeuristic videos of more than 3,500 people in his possession. Yes, that number is correct. These were recorded over a six-year period. Thomas was finally discovered when a female colleague found a recording device in the unisex staff shower room.Voyeurism Seems to Be On the RiseSome of these cases have had high visibility, but are incidents actually on the rise? As Krueger explains in “Noncontact Paraphilic Sexual Offenses” (2016), it has been difficult to track historically because of how it is criminally categorized in different countries, including the United States. In Great Britain, however, they do have a criminal offense for voyeurism.We did a search at The Law Pages, and found a significant rise in voyeurism convictions. In the years 2006-2009 there were only 2.25 convictions per year. A significant rise was noted in 2010-2012 where the average rose to six convictions per year. However, over the last four years, 2013-2016, this number has exploded even higher, up to an average of 16 convictions per year.These scary statistics on voyeurism prevalence, incidents per perpetrator, and the exponential rise of convictions have a significant bearing on “bathroom bills” and allowing access of biologic males into women’s safe spaces. At WOMAN Means Something, we oppose trans-advocacy policies and bills like Canada’s Bill C-16 which, although well-intentioned, put many women at risk of sexual violence.On January 14, 2017 we released a set of data, with original sources, that documents no fewer than 140 incidents in North America and the United Kingdom of sexual violence to women by biologic males in safe spaces like washrooms and change-rooms. Seventy-six of these recorded incidents took place in 2015 and 2016. To our knowledge this is the most comprehensive database on these kinds of incidents available. The vast majority of these were of non-transgender males who took advantage of unisex spaces to perpetrate voyeuristic activities against women.Given the statistics found in the literature, it is highly likely that these incidents represent the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Policy makers and politicians need to understand that the push to open women’s spaces is taking place in the middle of a voyeurism epidemic. Rights and freedoms don’t live in a vacuum. In this case the rights of one group (trans individuals) dramatically affects the rights of another (females).STATISTICS: http://womanmeanssomething.com/violencedatabase/http://thefederalist.com/2017/02/09/data-suggests-unisex-bathrooms-bonanza-male-perverts/?utm_source=The+Federalist+List&utm_campaign=1f5a3d1bb2-RSS_The_Federalist_Daily_Updates_w_Transom&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_cfcb868ceb-1f5a3d1bb2-83919629last_img read more

Science minister says hes watching out for postBrexit discrimination against UK researchers

first_imgJohnson is the brother of former London mayor Boris Johnson, a fellow Conservative Party member who was tipped to succeed David Cameron as prime minister, but unexpectedly pulled out of the party’s leadership race today. Boris staunchly campaigned to leave the European Union, whereas Jo was in favor of staying in.Scientists for EU, a group that campaigned for the United Kingdom to remain in the European Union, is also collecting evidence of an early impact of the vote on U.K. science. “We have already heard anecdotal stories of the Brexit vote causing immediate disruption to career plans, investments, and roles in new consortia that are forming,” the group says on its website. “We need to move from rumours to a set of case studies to help inform what we need to monitor and fix.”In Brussels, the official line matches Johnson’s: All ongoing contracts will be honored, and U.K. scientists can still apply for Horizon 2020 grants as they have done until now. Johnson said that he had “preemptively” alerted Carlos Moedas, the European Commission’s research chief, to his concerns. Moedas “has assured me of his support,” Johnson stated. A member of Moedas’s cabinet confirms that the research commissioner spoke with Johnson on the phone today. The United Kingdom “remains a Member State with all the rights and obligations that derive from this,” he told ScienceInsider in an email.At a commission event in Brussels on Tuesday, an attendee suggested that funding review panels might also be biased against grant proposals that include U.K. participants. A commission official responded that evaluators would receive “additional briefings” to avoid such bias.But Johnson did not lay out a long-term future for U.K. science post-Brexit today, and said nothing to alleviate universities’ worries that they will eventually lose European funding or talented researchers. The minister admitted that talks to define the new relationship between the United Kingdom and the bloc will be “a complex piece of work.” It will be hard in particular to reconcile promises to curtail the free movement of people—one of the basic tenets of the European Union, which universities want to maintain but Leave campaigners promised to curtail—with access to the European Union’s single market and other benefits. Although it’s important that the country remains open to the brightest people, “I can’t commit to any particular definition of freedom of movement for you,” Johnson said.

Country Email Just a week after the United Kingdom’s vote to exit the European Union rocked the continent, the country’s science minister says he’s “vigilant” about discrimination against U.K. scientists in European research programs. But his words appear insufficient to quell scientists’ anxieties for the long term.As long as the United Kingdom hasn’t left the European Union, it is “business as usual” for Horizon 2020, the European Union’s giant 7-year research program, Jo Johnson assured scientists in a speech at the Wellcome Trust in London today. Among other types of projects, Horizon 2020 provides funding for collaborative research projects, involving so-called “consortia” of scientists in several E.U. member states. There have been anecdotal reports that researchers in other countries have become reticent to include U.K. colleagues in new grant proposals because they worry that such partnerships won’t endure when the divorce becomes final. “I’ve asked the Horizon 2020 team in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to look out for signs that discrimination is starting to take place,” said Johnson, the minister of state for universities and science. He called on scientists to alert him if they were aware of such cases.
