I linked this to my guy friends who always use the excuse of “What about the false reports? It’s not fair that innocent men are accused of a crime they didn’t commit”
2 out of 1000. 0.02% Of all rapes are false.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MAD I AM RIGHT NOW.

That math is wrong. 2/1000=0.2%

This whole thing is wrong.  
The “falsely accused” should be in the “reported” category”, as it is a subset. Of the “reported but not accused”, and “faced trial but not jailed”, at least some of those should also be included in the “falsely accused” group. This is like the recent problem in my stats class, where 200 adults were surveyed, and 110 drank coffee, 50 drank tea, and 90 drank cola.  The key is that there’s overlap in the groups, and this chart doesn’t represent that. 
Claiming that huge number as the number of rapists is purely speculation.  If only so many are reported, then what supports the claim that there are something like eight times that number that actually happen? 
The overall design of the chart is bad.  Since the category represented uses two units, and all other categories are divisible by two, it visually inflates the numbers, where a more accurate representation would show smaller groups.  Not factually wrong, but it plays off people’s perceptions, and show that the purpose of this is emotional influence rather than objective reporting.

Also, though the debunking states the false claims to be from 2-8%, there are a lot of studies showing it to be anywhere from 2-28%

"Good Morning"
“How was your day?”
“Be careful”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“Sweet dreams”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Good night”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“You’re beautiful”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”

You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.

Hello Everyone, my name is Danny, I am Katelyn’s boyfriend. Late last night Katelyn was taken back into hospital from an overdose she had taken last week, her organs were shutting down slowly, yesterday, the hospital let her out, thinking everything was okay, but didn’t know she was in severe pain, Katelyn didn’t say anything, it was her ‘back-up plan’ to suicide. So shes drifting slowly, and the doctors said she will not make it. She will be missed, and I can’t cope without her here. I miss her so much already, and love her with every little bit of my heart. When she goes I don’t know what I will do, she is my perfect, sweet, loving girlfriend.
This photo was taken the day she came out of hospital. 

I don’t care what fucking blog you have, you have to reblog this right now. 

if you have a pink “rosy” blog, whatever, REBLOG THIS!
