I THINK WE SHOULD CALL THIS SORT OF BOGUS RESEARCH “HATE SCHOLARSHIP.” Ashe Schow: No, we did not just learn 1 in 3 college men would rape if they could get away with it. “The biggest problem with that study is that the researchers surveyed just 86 men (who received extra credit for their participation) at a single university in North Dakota. And the answers of just 73 men were used for analysis because the researchers discounted missing data and one man whose answers confused them. . . . The study is further tainted because it begins with a false premise — the often-repeated but thoroughly debunked statistic that one in five women will be raped during their college years.” If the researcher, Sarah Edwards, had done similarly shoddy and result-oriented scholarship about race she’d be drummed out of the academy. But shoddy research that makes men look like rapists is stylish now.
