Links17 is on a distinguished road

I do know that some research suggests that female children are at slightly greater risk of sexual abuse by stepfathers compared to biological fathers. SLIGHTLY greater. The vast majority of stepfathers would never abuse their stepchildren, and general statements about risk in a population should never be used to condemn or insinuate negative things about individuals.
Post me a proof.

I have a statistics background, and I know that terms like "as many as", "roughly", "may equal", etc are weasel words which have no relevance unless you have a clearly established baseline of incidence and prevalence (which I'm not seeing here). People use terms like these to incite fear and anxiety.
I agree can't trust the way stats are presented.
Noted, going to look into it specifically for the quotes I posted eventually depending on the proofs you post.
