Female Sexual Predators

I will be appearing today on this segment on female sex predators on Huffington Post Live at 5pm Eastern on Mike Sacks’ show. Feel free to tune in. If you miss it live I am given to understand that the link will still work to see the recorded session afterward.

*Update*: Some links people may find useful:

Cenk Uygur & The Young Turks pat a victim on the back, says the victim was asking for it.

A victim who wasn’t believed, a common trait, since most victims of female sex predators are not believed, even though female sexual predators are acknowledged to be at least 25% of the sex predator population and due to under-reporting 25% is almost certainly a low figure.

How sexual predation is considered a bonus when a boy is the victim of a woman. The case of Amie Lou Neely.

Also see how female predators groom their victims.

A survey of multiple studies on the growth of female pedophaelia (note: much reason to believe that this “growth” isn’t growth at all, just somebody finally deciding to start taking it seriously and really looking for it.)

A site that seeks to increase awareness of female sex predators.

The cultural siege on men which says that sexual predation is a predominantly male trait is continually eroding. And that’s with good reason: because it’s sexist rubbish.

*Update 2*: How could I forget to mention the men paying child support to their rapists?

  1. Dean,

    I am one of those who have never understood this “issue,” just as I don’t understand many other sexual “phenomena.”

    However, after watching the HuffPost segment, and even though I may still not understand everything about it, I will no longer outright dismiss it or downplay it.

    Thanks for your efforts in bringing about such understanding and sorry for what you have experienced.

  2. It is a horrid thing for any child to be sexually abused… From being a professional in this field and from doing lots of research i do strongly believe that the numbers you are going by are heavily skewed… They just do not add up with reliable statistics…

  3. Dean this is something that i have questioned often with your reports… and would kindly appreciate how you come up with the stats… once before on rape i questioned and went to the FBI stats and found little correlation which what you share.

    This evening went to CDC NISVS REPORT for 2010 and they do correlate with the FBI stats..

    Here is an example;

    Sex of Perpetrator in Lifetime Reports of Sexual Violence
    Most perpetrators of all forms of sexual violence against women were male. For female rape victims, 98.1% reported only male perpetrators. Additionally, 92.5% of female victims of sexual violence other than rape reported only male perpetrators.

    For male victims, the sex of the perpetrator varied by the type of sexual violence experienced. The majority of male rape victims (93.3%) reported only male perpetrators. For three of the other forms of sexual violence, a majority of male victims reported only female perpetrators: being made to penetrate (79.2%), sexual coercion (83.6%), and unwanted sexual contact (53.1%). For non-contact unwanted sexual experiences, approximately half of male victims (49.0%) reported only male perpetrators and more than one-third (37.7%) reported only female perpetrators (data not shown).

    I have hesitated to get in this discussion from the beginning for i do not want to minimize anyone’s experience… but i think it serves advocacy to make sure the data is accurate… for when the numbers are skewed high it opens the door to lack of reliability for the very thing that needs to be brought out of the dark..

    If i am not seeing this correctly would kindly appreciate what i am not seeing…when i have checked with the FBI and CDC stats they do seem to validate my own experience in working with survivors of sexual assault… I just dont know how anyone can come up with a 25 percent figure?
