    Apparently the faith of rapists is only important when they are Muslim."

    I'm sure that "barenakedislam" has a very balanced view on this. 🙄

    The Swedish police record each instance of sexual violence in every case
    separately, leading to an inflated number of cases compared to other countries.
    Sweden also has a comparatively wide definition of rape. This means that
    more sexual crimes are registered as rape than in most other countries. For
    example, in 2005 Sweden reformed its sex crime legislation and made the
    legal definition of rape much wider, which led to a marked increase in reports.
    Additionally, the Swedish police have improved the handling of rape cases, in
    an effort to decrease the number of unreported cases. For this reason, large-scale
    victimisation surveys have been presented by criminologists as a more reliable
    indicator of rape prevalence. An EU-wide survey on sexual violence against women, published
    by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) in 2014, showed
    Sweden was only third highest, below Denmark and Finland and a previous
    assessment by Brå have placed Sweden at an average level among European nations

    If you were able to read impartially you would see that rape is defined differently across the world.

    I think Wolfgang's point is that what constitutes rape depends on how it is defined in the jurisdiction. Since Sweden has a definition of rape that is wider than most other countries it is going to have cases that would be classed as sexual assault elsewhere on its rape figures. This tends to increase the apparent incidence of rape relative to other countries.

    The UK has a separate offence of underaged sex (used when the child is over 13 and it was consensual, they'll only proceed if the age difference is significant and it is an imprisonable offence for up to 14 years) so incidences of that are classed separately from rape, which would affect crime figures relative to countries that class the same offence as statutory rape.

    Yup. And rapists in Europe don’t get sent to sex addiction clinics (not sure they actually exist over here... we probably call them Amsterdam or something).
