[December 11, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,557 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • South Africa has the highest rates of rape in the world. Interpol estimates that more than a million rapes are committed annually in South Africa.
    • An estimated 200,000 children, some under the age of one year,  are raped in SA each year.
  • United States. “Officials estimate that, in reality, as many as 2 million women are raped each year, with the majority of them not reporting this violent crime because of the stigma that society still imposes on the victim.”
    • 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed rape; 2.8% attempted rape).
    • 15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12.
    • “Most statutes currently define rape as nonconsensual oral, anal, or vaginal penetration of the victim by body parts or objects using force, threats of bodily harm, or by taking advantage of a victim who is incapacitated or otherwise incapable of giving consent.”
    • About 27.5% of college women in the United States “reported experiences that met the legal criteria for rape.”
      • Some 44% of rape victims are under age 18.
      • 80% are under age 30.
    • At least 84 % of sexual assaults are not reported to the police.
    • About 3% of American men — or 1 in 33 — have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.
      • In 2003, 1 in every ten rape victims were male.2
      • 2.78 million men in the U.S. have been victims of sexual assault or rape.
    • “Estimates of the proportion of rapes reported to authorities vary — from less than 3 per cent in South Africa to about 16 per cent in the United States.”
    • “Rape victims are especially at risk of infection. Up to 30 per cent of women raped in the United States every year, for instance, develop an STD as a result.”
  • Global. “Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or abused in some other way — most often by someone she knows, including by her husband or another male family member; one woman in four has been abused during pregnancy.”
    • “At least 60 million girls who would otherwise be expected to be alive are “missing” from various populations, mostly in Asia, as a result of sex-selective abortions, infanticide or neglect.”
    • “Molestation of young girls is another profoundly disturbing aspect of this problem. A study in Zaria, Nigeria, for example, found that 16 per cent of hospital patients with sexually transmitted infections were under age 5.At the Genito-Urinary Centre in Harare, Zimbabwe, doctors discovered that more than 900 children under age 12 had been treated for an STD in 1990 alone.”
    • Globally, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10-20 men report being sexually abused as children. WHO Child maltreatment Fact sheet N°150 August 2010.
