Surfing through the web, I often come across ignorant statements on topics that require relevancy and context, rather than broad strokes of dim intellect. For example, I recently made a blog post about a group of people on Instagram who think putting a curfew on all 3.5 billion men on the planet is the best way to go, because they think 96% of all men on the planet are guilty of murder and 99% of all men are guilty of rape. What their ignorance didn’t realize, was that the 96% male rate for murder was based on 436,621 homicides over 3 years from 2009 to 2012. That 99% male rate for rape is based on reported cases of rape per a population of 100,000 people per year. Of course, this discounted the fact that most rapes aren’t reported
