Is "attractive female player character who was sexually assaulted at some point in the past" played out at this point?

It's beyond played out at this point. The only time it doesn't come across as forced "rape as backstory" crap is when it does not define the character.
One player in a campaign I ran did the "I am the child of rape" thing, but he was playing a half-orc in a setting where >99% of half-orcs are rape babies so it wasn't annoying.

I could buy it actually. In a conservative society, a girl who's known to have been raped might become ineligible for marriage, and at that point there are very few opportunities for a "respectable" life. Becoming a rootless adventurer probably seems an appealing prospect at that point. It's that or stay at home where everyone thinks you're a whore, if you don't become one literally.

Yeah, this is where the angle kind of works.

When making a character one of the first questions should be "Why is this person out fucking off instead of working the farm or family business or a housewife." and in many historical settings "I was raped so my family hated me and no one would marry me" is, unfortunately, a pretty good reason to be a wandering troublemaker. It is also one that only really works for women.

I guess you could have a story of a bot being raped and not feeling like he could stay in his community and having trust issues, hence becoming a wanderer.

it's really not that high of a statistic. not every rape is someone pulls your pants down on the street and just ruts you like a dog. Most rape goes unreported. Mostly for good reasons, not to be callous to the victims but sometimes staying quiet really is the only way to keep something from exploding into pure unadulterated bullshit and there are a lot of people who legitimately could care less or wouldn't believe them no matter how sympathetic the victim seems.

Hell I wouldn't put it past most support groups for victims, family members or friends or whatever, are the ones that normally push for them to get justice. It probably doesn't help that most rapes are from people with outstanding relationships and people have invested in them and want them to continue despite the rape, or in other cases rape is build up to be so awful that when it inevitably sucks but causes sexual pleasure, it messes with the victims sense of personal sanctity and makes them feel unsure if theyre just a slut who secretly liked it despite all other evidence to the contrary. It's taboo to talk about that parts that caused physical pleasure after all.

The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey found that 18% of all women have suffered completed or attempted rape. There are a couple of reasons for the discrepancy between it and the NCVS, which I will straight up quote from the document you linked:

"The NISVS uses a broader definition of sexual violence, which specifically mentions incidents in which the victim was unable to provide consent due to drug or alcohol use. [...] Unlike the NCVS, which uses terms like rape and unwanted sexual activity to identify victims of rape and sexual assault, the NISVS and CSA use behaviorally specific questions to ascertain whether the respondent experienced rape or sexual assault."

Basically the NISVS counts rape by someone who has been incapacitated by drugs or alcohol and the NCVS doesn't. Additionally the NISVS asks people, "Have you ever been [legal definition of rape]?" while the NCVS actually asks "Have you ever been raped?". Apparently a lot of people will admit to having suffered something that is legally rape, but only if you don't actually use the r-word. You actually get the same effect from the opposite direction, in that around 6% of men will admit to having done something that would legally qualify as rape, such as holding someone down and having sex with them against their will, provided you don't actually call it rape.

There may also be a cohort effect in play here. The vast majority of rapes (like 80%) occur to people under 30. All types of crime started to drop drastically in the early 90s, so it's entirely possible that when you look at lifetime rape prevalence it's huge because of the women who were young in the 70s and 80s. If you focus only on rape in the last 12 months, the NCVS and NISVS are actually pretty close with the first putting the all women rate at 1% and the second at 2%. Which come to think of it, if you modelled rape as a 1% per year chance over 20 years then you would expect nearly 1/5 women to have been raped.

That aside, I said earlier in this thread that when a female player has a female character with rape as a backstory (or even just 'abused by men'), that, in my experience, it's a red flag (player is disruptive, trying to crowbar in their personal politics, wants to hog the spotlight etc). Is this just me who has experienced this?

I suddenly remembered some virgin GM that was friend of my brother's friend who would add rape to anything to make it "deep" and scary.

>"So this necromancer was angry at this player, so he captured him, raised his wife as a zombie, cut her body, rape her, destroy her body and raise her again to rape her and try to impregnate her while he would watch the whole time"
>"This villain captured the PC of a friend, and I didn't want to mention it, but since the guy was so evil, he raped her while the other characters don't know her whereabouts"

Those are the only stories I can remember, but he began telling those stories in a barbecue and he would always mention rape or some degree of fucked up sexuality somewhere.
I wanted to call him out on that, but he seemed like a legit nice person.

>> No.47033568

>Basically the NISVS counts rape by someone who has been incapacitated by drugs or alcohol
Which is why its statistics arent worth shit if you want to know how many people were actually raped, as in the colloquial, "was forced to have unwanted sex, or was sexually assaulted and penetrated". Many studies purposefully inflate rape statistics by including instances like where a boyfriend and girlfriend smoke some pot and then bang. Boom, she was intoxicated by drugs and thus couldn't consent that's rape! Two people both get drunk at a party looking for sex and end up doing the dirty underneath a pool table loudly and vigorously? Totally rape, at least according to many feminist rape hysteria studies.
Your second paragraph is rather telling. " Apparently a lot of people will admit to having suffered something that is legally rape". Most of the time they didn't suffer shit, they happened to have participated in something that would legally count as rape. There are people who have serious financial and political incentive to inflate these statistics to the point of ridiculousness, saying that you're more likely to get raped on a college campus than during a fucking civil war in the congo. There are people who are payed thousands and thousands of dollars a year to try and "solve these problems" that would lose their jobs if people knew how unlikely a woman is to actually be raped while in a first world nation's institutes of higher learning.
It's honestly disgusting and incredibly disrespectful to actual victims of rape .

>> No.47033610

That's definitely an underestimate by a reasonable non-legal definition of "rape".

For starters, you're comparing different numbers - rape over a lifetime vs rape over a 7 year period. Obviously that doesn't make up the shortfall to 1/9, but even if the rate falls with age and you don't double count women who get raped in both spans, you should expect the total over the remaining 50ish years of life to push the rate up a fair bit.

More importantly, the survey methodologies are very different. The one you linked says women can't rape men without pegging them, for instance. Otherwise it's just sexual assault. It's useful for legal assessments, because the law is ass-backwards.

The numbers you quoted, although I don't blame you for this, are also just for the "Completed Rape" category. You get another 5.4/1000 from attempted rape and sexual assault, leaving out the small number from threats (which raises some interesting questions - if true, it means people are almost certain to carry out threats of sexual violence against women after they make them). The reason I don't blame you is that the study highlights don't make any effort to communicate this, which is pretty fucking bad form.

But the thing is, a good statistician will tell you that the numbers just aren't directly comparable. There are too many differences between the methodologies - if you want an actually good answer, you're going to need to construct and give a survey that uses a definition of rape that you find acceptable, and uses psychologically-appropriate tactics for that definition in order to get honest reporting from subjects (for example, this has made me reconsider as plausible the SJW line that people underreport rape because of a social stigma against rape victims making them unwilling to admit that they were victimized - the other surveys just ask about behavior and classify some of it as sexual violence, while this one apparently relies on the respondent to make the call).

>> No.47033701

I've never had this, but just from my own feelings and observations I can guess that someone wouldn't include rape unless they felt strongly about it (as a victim or an activist of some sort, perhaps both), or were turned on by it.

Anybody else (and probably a good few victims) would be far too uncomfortable with the idea to include it, or too worried about how they would be judged for it.

>> No.47033718

On the other hand, the 1/4 statistic took people who admitted to have drunken sex and called it rape, even when they didn't agree.

>> No.47033813

I'm not seeing the problem with asking someone if they suffered an event that is the legal definition of rape. If you ask someone, "Has anyone ever raped you?" an they say no, but then you asked them "Has anyone ever forced you to have sex against your will" and they say yes, do you call them a rape victim or not?

With respect to drugs an alcohol, this is the actual question in the NISVS: "When you were drunk, high, drugged, or passed out and unable to consent, how many people ever..." and then a list of sexual acts. Which yes is a question that can lead to overreporting, but perhaps not as much as you think.

See rereading the thing you linked, I found that the 7.6 per thousand number is the prevalence PER YEAR. Not for the entire 18-24 cohort, but how many of them are raped on a yearly basis. It's still lower than the per year reported by the NISVS for the reasons previously stated, but the difference isn't orders of magnitude huge. Also 7.4 per thousand is for women 18-24 who are not in college, it's 6.1 for college-age females (yeah there is no campus rape problem, women are actually safer in school). If there's a number for the two combined i can't find it, so i'm going to just split the difference and assume it's 6.75 per thousand.

If 6.75 per thousand women 18-24 suffer sexual assault per year on average, then by the end of the six years that it takes to cross the age bracket about 5% of the total will have been raped (assuming no substantial revictimization). Throw in rapes occurring outside the age bracket, plus differences in scope and methodology, plus the theorized cohort effect, and it fits that the NISVS found that nearly 1/5 women in the United States have suffered completed or attempted rape. Which yes is probably overinflated, so I'd guess the real prevalence of victims of completed and attempted rape is more like 1/10 among the whole female population.

I agree - that's too permissive, while the NCVS is too restrictive. The truth, I assume, lies somewhere in between in a realm of sanity that statisticians and bureaucrats cannot approach for fear of bursting into flames.

1/9 (11%ish) sounds plausible, if it matters. Somewhere in that neighborhood, give or take a couple percentage points. For a lifetime rate, anyway. I figure you take this survey, include the 5.4 per thousand, inflate for a somewhat more permissive definition that includes verbal or emotional coercion and counts some, but not all, uses of alcohol and other recreational drugs as incapacitation (a fair distinction is impossible to code into a survey, but oh well), and then run it out over a person's entire life. All those factors together could easily push it up an order of magnitude.

Hang on, where's that? I took another look, and I can't find it. And I'm the anon who (mostly) agrees with your other criticisms.

Just to be clear, the methodology was to enroll a person for 3 years and there's an interview every 6 months. Nobody actually stayed in the cohort for the full length of the study.

Now, they do also present yearly rates, which are at about the same order of magnitude as that 7.6 per thousand, but that's what you'd expect if the rates were fairly stable in reality. What you have to realize is that those rates are "How much of the population has been raped?", not "How likely is a person to have been raped?" If the real rate remains unchanged, and the sample is fair, you'd expect to see a constant rate each year, which when averaged should yield something close to the real rate. You can't get the number you're looking for (a particular woman's odds of being raped in a given year) from just the fraction of women each year who have been raped ever, because you need to either track individual people's life history or get a lot of demographic information in order to estimate the aggregate.

Well for starters it used the term "rate" which implies a time unit, which for this sort of thing is usually a year. Also Table 1 on Page 4 lists average annual number of completed and attempted rape and sexual assaults then converts that number into a rate per 1000 students. So every year between 1997 and 2013 an average of 7.6 per thousand women 18-24 who are not in college suffer some sort of sexual abuse as defined in the survey. For those attending college in the same age group it was 6.1 per thousand women. That's how many suffered rape and sexual assault each year.

To reiterate the survey measures victimizations not victims. That is to say the rate is how many women were raped in the age group on a yearly basis, not how many rape victims there were among the age group on a yearly basis. We can however estimate the prevalence of rape victims by using the estimated risk, as i did above. It comes out to a prediction that 4% of 25 year old females having been victimized in the past six years. (Last post said 5% that was a typo.)

Cops problems often isn't that the person dies anyway, it's that the person wasn't resisting arrest to begin with and they pin them to the ground and don't let them breathe. Or they shoot them in the head with the taser instead of a much easier and fatter area like their torso.

Rape is boring.
Dead parents are boring.
Tragic past is boring.

Even if your character was raped in the past, or another bad thing happened to him, that doesn't mean that these past events define your character.

Do you remember that embarassing thing you did eight years ago? Does it really affect your current life? Or did you choose to become who you are, and not let it affect you?

Let bygones be bygones.
Let the sins of our fathers stay on their shoulders and not affect their children.
Let us stand on the shoulders of the giants, but not rely on them.
Even if you were raped, ultimately the choice is yours - to move on with your life and not let it affect you, or to be unable to let go of it and let it define your life.

If you want the past to define your life, why not let the good things define it? Why cling onto all the bad shit that happened to you? Why not simply acknowledge it as the past and move on?

I tend to follow this pattern:

-Something bad that changed you
-Something neutral that changed you
-Something good that changed you
-Good character=overcomes the bad thing that happened/ Neutral character=Deal with the bad thing/Bad character=Bad thing shaped them

And the limit of only a single bad thing can happen to the character per backstory, whether it be a neglectful parent or catching their mother's genital herpes during birth.

>> No.47038568

On the one hand it makes sense that the well adjusted, happy and wholesome aren't adventurers - usually it takes people with issues or a rough upbringing or whatever to galvanize them to take those great big risks.

But rape is bland and uncreative. Why not female adventurer with (non-rape) daddy or mommy issues. A jilted lover who is cucked by her boyfriend choosing someone else and decides to do the fantasy version of sign up for the french foreign legion. Women laid off from whatever fantasy job she had so she becomes an adventurer. Herb-woman of the village ran out for some gossipy rumor taking to adventuring. Empty-nest-egg syndrome 30 year old mother or elf adventurer.

No. As in actual barbarian. When I say "hear the lamentations of the women." I'm not speaking in metaphor.

I really don't think rape is a bad thing as long as you don't be a shit about it by making it your characters only noticeable trait but more importantly you don't shove it down your parties throats.

My barbarian does indeed take pick of a captured or defeated women after a battle. Just like my sheik character does indeed make slaves of them too. I never put it at the forefront, just mention it as part of what my character does for the night and at most when the next session starts you see my barbarian wake up from his hut and disheveled villagers leave, or the sheiks camel train has another mouth to feed. I especially don't force issue on an NPC deemed important by the party.

(Although there was one case where it turned out the low rank female soldier the sheik had kept from the battle with the empire a few weeks ago actually knew some relevant info to the mission. In exchange for it we offered her freedom, but she requested to be pampered and guarantee's not to be sold instead.)

But it misses the point. Everything is played out, the chances of your background being unique in fiction are low bordering on impossible, particularly for a 1-3 paragraph effort.

So get over it. Tropes aren't bad. You can have a great character riffing off somewhat stereotypical "my character hates intimacy because they were raped in the past."

>you can't do that shit in todays day and age without steady income

There has literally never been a better time in human history to do it.

Your main prerequisite is to either be debt-free, or willing to spend your life dodging debt collectors. This also means being childless and single, or willing to do what's necessary to end those relationships in an acceptable way.

Next, save up for a van or something - shell out a few grand on this, you'll want it to last several years at least. Also, pick up the equipment you'd need for whatever you want to do to support yourself - musical instruments, cameras, whatever. You don't need these skills yet, you will develop them over your travel time. Finally, save up enough money to buy food and gasoline for several months, since you won't be earning shit for those. If you meet the above prerequisites and have a full-time job, even at minimum wage, all this saving should only take you a year or so. You can go faster if you also donate plasma, get a second job, etc. Keep your money in a bank, not in cash, and make sure you have portable Internet access (a laptop or smartphone) so you can look up information on whatever place you've wound up in.

Next, hit the fucking road. Practice your craft, and remember during those first months that it isn't a hobby. Be responsible with your money. Pay your fucking taxes - just keep track of what you earned in each state and you'll be fine. You will never be wealthy. You will never be famous. You will never have a family. You will never have close friends. But you may be free.

I've played/written a few pretty female characters with a backstory in sexual abuse which is pretty heavily spelled out, as well as affecting their motivations, but I usually come short of actually outright saying it for a couple reasons.

First and foremost, I find rape distracting in stories. You highlight that aspect of a character's past, it eclipses the rest of their motivations. Not only that, but it's done to death by shittier writers trying to insert "drama" into their stories or generally be edgy fucks for the sake of "muh realism."

Tengu society is fairly conservative and hierarchical from what I understand.
