Worthwhile Read: Trajectory Analysis of the Campus Serial Rapist Assumption

This article, or at least the subject of this article, is already blowing up my social media feeds, so chances are good you’ve read about it, even if you haven’t read the actual study yet. JAMA Pediatrics has made Trajectory Analysis of the Campus Serial Rape Assumption available free, full-text (at least for the time being), so I would encourage you to check it out for yourself. It’s a pretty fascinating read, and I’m still digesting the research and its methodology, conclusions, and, as with all studies, limitations (for instance, how they chose to define rape). I’m very interested to hear the fields’ thoughts–it challenges some long-held beliefs, so this is a conversation-starter, for sure.
