You seem like an educated person, which is why I am dumbfounded by some of your comments. You have cited the NISVS Report, specifically the tables 2.1 and 2.2 found on page 18 and 19 of the report.
However, you ASSUME that the same number of women who were raped by men is the same number of men who were raped by women. No where does it say that 1,267,000 men were raped by women. You labeled the table yourself without thinking that maybe some if not most of the rapes were MALE ON MALE. Consider this, the US Crime Victimization Survey of 2005 found that 99% of rapes were committed by men. Did you get that? 99% (Sure, it's a 7 year old study. But trends have not changed in the past 7 years. In fact, trends have not changed for over 25 years based on the statistics from government organizations.) That means that in no way is it possible that women raped men as often as men raped women.
If I have offended you, I understand. You probably have offended some people reading your comments. But please be more careful when citing a scholarly literature review.
