Girl Rapes Girl at US College

It must be rare but here it is...


Co-ed is charged with raping her female roommate after they drank alcohol and smoked marijuana at Susquehanna University, Pennsylvania

The pair consumed marijuana and alcohol prior to the alleged rape, according to a police report obtained by multiple media outlets.

After falling asleep, the accuser says she woke up with Thakur - who hails from The Bronx- straddling her...

...According to The New York Post, the arrested affidavit reads: 'Victim reports trying to wiggle from being underneath Thakur, and Thakur stated, 'What did you say? You want me to suck your nipple?' 'Thakur then lifted victim's sports bra and bit her nipple.'...

...The alleged assailant is also accused of forcefully putting her fingers inside the accuser's vagina...

...The accuser reported the incident to college officials 13 days later, on May 29. She went to the police on June 6...

"It must be rare."

Interesting, but I am not so sure about it being rare. I believe that there is a great deal of college-dorm behavior that we don't hear about often.

Used to see this kind of thing all the time in Penthouse Letters, but it always had a cooperative ending.

It's rare, but not very rare. Male on male rape is reported at such a shockingly low rate that many people also think it doesn't really exist.

Nor was it usually written by regular people - A hardbound (blue dust jacket) book on various money making writing porn for lettercols , short stories and novels covered that topic very well. Unfortunately I can't remember the title and my books number 10,000 plus.

Don't know if it is rare, maybe females are just better at getting away with it, so it's not reported.

Women are capable of committing rape (although it might not be formally recognized as such according to the law) and lesbian/bisexual women are sexually attracted to other women. The logical conclusion is that women can rape women, although it should be stressed that a lack of sexual attraction is not a prerequisite for someone committing rape.

Whether or not it's rare is a question of whether the prelevence is proportional to women's rate of committing rape and the smaller population of lesbian/bisexual women.

Purely speculative you could wonder whether same-sex rape and sexual abuse among lesbian/bisexual females is more common than it should be, based on the impression that they have a tendency to be somewhat more masculine than females in general. At least that's the impression I got from hearing about how female athletes and sportswomen behave in private.

Sometimes it's spun as something else. College fraternity and high school/college sports team hazing occasionally includes elements of blatant sexual assault that it seems is only lately being acknowledged as such.

It was something like How to Write Erotica. I probably wrote about 4000 of those silly letters.

And worse, it's a popular punchline to stupid jokes. Including on these forums.

Not exactly the same, but rates of domestic violence in lesbian relationships is notoriously high. Rates for gay men are relatively low (lower than heterosexual couples).

Just a short correction, since this is a little misleading. I don't have the stats handy, but I did post them in another thread on this subject a number of years ago, so they're there somewhere.

Lesbian couples have a rate of reported domestic violence that is slightly but significantly higher than for heterosexual couples; while gay men have a rate of reported DV that is substantially lower than heterosexual couples.

However... Lesbian couples also have an estimated reporting rate that is substantially higher than for either of those groups, while the estimated reporting rate for gay men is way below that of heterosexual couples. Estimations are based on (often anonymous) polling regarding DV complaints and reports.

So it would likely be accurate to say that all types of couples have roughly equivalent rates of domestic violence, with gay men possibly being lower than either lesbians or heterosexual couples; but that lesbians are much better about reporting DV, while gay men are least likely to report. IIRC, gay men have a reporting rate similar to heterosexual men who are victims of DV, so the under-reporting is very likely due to similar stigmatization of domestic violence in western culture. (In heterosexual couples, men are just as likely to be victims as women, but are much less likely to be physically injured, due to the physical discrepancies. Women are more likely than men to use weapons, however.)
