Probably nobody has complained because all of those crimes are... wait for it... violent!
about one-quarter of female undergraduates said they had experienced nonconsensual sex or touching since entering college,
So, they lumped in rape victims with women that had their ass grabbed by a drunk frat guy. How am I suppose to take this "one-quarter" stat seriously?
