Because 25% of Men Are Douchebags

A UC Davis professor conducted a study to find an explanation for the fact that, stastically, 25% of women in college are sexually assaulted.

The professor chalks it up to "faulty male introspection": that men decide how to interpret what women say based on what they, the men, would mean saying the same thing. For example, if a girl tells a guy "It's getting late" and the guy interprets that as "Let's speed this up" because that's what he would mean if he said it, then she might just get date raped. Oops.

According to Jezebel, one of the professor's "main conclusions is that women need to be as direct as possible when communicating sexual wants."

One of my main conclusions is that it takes a COLOSSAL douchebag to try to find scientific backing for "She was asking for it."
