CDC caught in a lie

Alison Tieman (typhonblue) of AVfM has made a video using puzzle pieces to illustrate how CDC categorize made to penetrate as not rape.

About halfway through the video there is an interview where Hannah Wallen (also of AVfM I believe) is talking on the phone with a person from the CDC on their decision to categorize made to penetrate as something else than rape in their NISVS 2010 Report.

The person from CDC state that the definitions of rape and made to penetrate are in line with CDC’s uniform definitions for sexual violence. This can be heard from the 6:28 mark in the video.

That is a lie

They are not in line with CDC’s uniform definitions for sexual violence. The CDC uniform definitions of sexual violence defines rape as a completed nonconsensual sex act (i.e., rape) where sex act is defined as contact between the penis and the vulva or the penis and the anus involving penetration, however slight; contact between the mouth and penis, vulva, or anus; or penetration of the anal or genital opening of another person by a hand, finger, or other object.

Made to penetrate is not mentioned in their uniform definitions of sexual violence at all. Made to penetrate would however fall within the definition of rape used as made to penetrate would entail “contact between the penis and the vulva involving penetration”, “contact between the penis and the anus involving penetration” or “contact between the mouth and penis”.

I have already documented this back in October last year in a post titled “Did the NISVS 2010 Report really use CDC’s definition of rape?” where more details and links to CDC’s uniform definitions of sexual violence can be found.
