Surveyors baffled when students don't see themselves as sex assault victims


Activists rightly claim that sexual assault is one of the worst things a victim can go through. So why would anyone want to put someone through that?

Several months ago, the University of Michigan released a flawed survey claiming 22.5 percent of undergrad women at the university had been sexually assaulted. That's not actually the case — the study, like others, offered a broad definition of sexual assault guaranteed to elicit a high response.

Now, the researcher behind that survey is saying he was surprised that the number one write-in response from students as to why they didn't report the alleged sexual assault to an official was because "it was no big deal."
