Sex Statistics...

There are a lot of surveys and studies that agree with  the "2/3 of rapes and assaults are unreported."

There are a variety of reasons why women don't "officially" report.

Case in point:  the guy that molested 6 girls at the waterpark in Edmonton is currently on trial and so far it seems his excuse is going to be - "It wasn't me."  Which now becomes a he said/she said thing.

All good points. It doesn't matter the sex of the aggressor or the victim: sexual assault is usually extremely difficult to prove beyond reasonable doubt. Even a rape kit test might prove nothing more than that sexual intercourse occurred, not whether either participant was willing or not.

If the victim knows there's now hard proof of uwilling participation, that's a strong incentive to just let it go. It doesn't make the experience any less traumatic though.

Men rape in far higher numbers than women do.  That is why there is more of them in jail for it than women.

I suspect that men don't report for the same reasons women don't.

I thought no differences exist between the sexes.  Man can become a woman and vice versa.  They are the same we are told.  Are they different?

You are basically claiming all polls to be suspect if not wrong.  It's quite a striking claim, and as ever you will be expected to defend it.

They can definately be skewed. Depending on the questions.  How they're asked and to whom.  Everyone has bias.  Intended or not.
