Explaining Victimization

While criminological theories attempt to explain why crimes
occur, victimization theories focus on the role of victims when crimes
transpire. Victimolgists are criminologists that study victims of crime.
In addition, they also examine the cost of victimization on society.
Victimization’s toll on society includes economic loss, blaming of the
victim, long-term stress, fear, and engaging in antisocial behaviors.

Economic loss is comprised of two types. Those types are system
loss and personal loss. System loss is the amount of money the
government spends on things such as treatment for victims, as well
as the cost of the criminal justice process due to the offense. Personal
loss refers to the cost suffered specifically by the victim, which can
include loss of income, deductibles, etc. Personal loss can be both
short-term and long-term.

Blaming the victim often occurs after one is victimized. Statements
by friends and family on the victim’s attire, location and time of
their presence, and/or the type of company the victim entertains are
frequently made to confirm the reason for the victimization. The
aforementioned is particularly true for victims of sexual assaults. Due
to blaming, it is extremely difficult for those who have been raped
to come forward and report their assault. Victims of rape often have
a feeling of being victimized multiple times because they are forced
to relive the horrible incident when telling the accounts to the police
and then again in court while being aggressively questioned.

Long-term stress often presents as post-traumatic stress disorder.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction to

PRiMARy ThEORiES Of CRiME AND ViCTiMizATiON

217

a highly stressful event; symptoms may include depression, anxiety,
flashbacks, and recurring nightmares (Siegel, 2015). Many associate
PTSD with the military and war. While PTSD does occur as a result
of combat, symptoms of PTSD can also start due to other traumatic
events such as being a victim of an armed robbery, a rape, a physical
assault, a home invasion, a kidnapping, etc.

Fear often results in victims changing their routines as a result
of fear of repeat victimization. People that experience a violent
victimization often experience the greatest level of fear as it relates
to being victimized again. This frequently leads to them becoming
horrified of being a victim of other crimes that have not occurred.

People that have been victimized (especially youth) have a higher
probability of engaging in antisocial behaviors. Youth that are victims
of sexual assaults who do not receive counseling often victimize
other kids. Also, youth that are physically abused or subjected to a
significant amount of physical punishment such as spankings are
more likely to engage in physical violence. Research suggests that the
aforementioned occurs because the juvenile learns to resolve conflict
via physical means.

Victimization and Environment

The National Crime Victimization Survey shows that violent
offenses are more prevalent during the day or evening between 5:00
p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in community areas such as parks, streets, or
fields than in a residence during the morning. Violent offenses such
as rape and first-degree assault often happen after 6:00 p.m. Violent
crimes and thefts occur at higher rates in the inner city than in the
suburbs. Victimization in rural areas occurs less than half of those
that reside in cities.

Victim Characteristics

Males are more likely to be victims of violent crimes and robberies
than are their female counterparts. However, women have a much-
greater probability of being a victim of rape or sexual assault than are
men. As it relates to age, victimization significantly decreases after
the age of twenty-five. This is because marriage tends to increase
after the age of twenty-five and, as a result, people that were once
single and frequenting places such as bars now remain home at higher
rates.

Poor people are victims of violent crimes more than the middle and
upper class. Due to socioeconomic challenges, African Americans
are disproportionately represented in this category of victimization.
As a result of economic challenges, minorities live in urban areas that
are troubled with narcotics, poverty, and gangs.

Victimization Theories

There are four theories of victimization that attempt to explain
the victim’s role when crimes occur. The four theories are victim
participation theory, lifestyle theory, deviant place theory, and
routine activities theory. Each of theory provides unique insight to the
understanding of how and sometimes why people become victims.

Victim Participation Theory

Victim participation theory is the idea that victims may be
responsible for the engagement that leads to the victimization through
either active or passive actions. The behaviors can sometimes include
the presence of a substance such as alcohol or a narcotic that places

PRiMARy ThEORiES Of CRiME AND ViCTiMizATiON

219

the victim in an inebriated state that results in belligerent behavior,
which leads to someone physically assaulting them. Thus, while
the assault was against the law and the norms of society, the victim
instigated it via their participation in verbally aggressive behaviors.

Lifestyle Theory

Lifestyle theory contends that people become victims due to
certain lifestyles that require their interaction with criminals and
the criminal subculture. An example of lifestyle participation theory
would be someone that voluntarily works in the drug trade or
becomes a member of a gang. Each of the aforementioned lifestyles
uses violence as a means of control and is often subjected to the same
violent acts. As a result, the probability of being a victim of a violent
crime such as an assault or homicide is high.

Deviant Place Theory

Deviant place theory argues that victimization occurs as a result
of the location in which one resides. This is often used to explain the
victimization of those that reside in high-crime areas such as urban
and inner-city neighborhoods. Violent crime and thefts are higher in
central city areas than suburban areas. As a result, citizens that live
in city and urban areas are more likely to experience victimization
such as theft. Offenses such as robbery and theft are more prevalent
in inner cities than suburban areas due to income inequality and
poverty.

220

JAMES R. JONES, Ph.D.

Routine Activities Theory

Routine activities theory was coined by Lawrence E. Cohen and
Marcus Felson in 1979. It is the view that victimization results from
the interaction of three everyday factors: (1) motivated offender,
(2) suitable target, and (3) absence of a capable guardian (Cohen &
Felson, 1979). If the aforementioned factors are present together, a
crime and a victimization will occur. However, if one of the factors
is absent, a crime or victimization will not occur. It should be noted
that a capable guardian does not have to be a person. A capable
guardian can be anything that is designed to act as a security measure
to prevent a crime from occurring. An example of a capable guardian
that is not a person is a car alarm or locks on a car.

Critical Thinking Questions

1. What are some ways citizens can protect themselves from
being victimized?

2. Which victimization theory do you believe explains the
primary reason for victimization in the United States? Why?

3. What are some things you do to protect yourself from being
victimized?

4. How can law enforcement assist with the decrease of violent
victimization?

Research Perspective

This chapter focused on the role victims play in crimes. There
are four primary theories of victimization. People are targets of
victimization for different reasons. Review the study in this chapter
titled “Rate at Which Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Citizens Are Victims
of Physical Assaults due to Their Sexual Orientation.” This research
examines the rate at which members of the LGBT community are
victims of violent assaults due to their sexual orientation.

Rate At Which Lesbian, Gay, And Bisexual Citizens Are
Victims Of Physical Assaults Due To Their Sexual Orientation

by
James R. Jones, Ph.D.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the rate at which
lesbian, gay, and bisexual US citizens are victims of physical
assaults due to their sexual orientation. The research consisted of 198
participants. Closed-ended surveys were provided to the participants.
The question for this study was “How many times have you been
physically assaulted because of your sexual orientation?” An ordinal
regression was conducted to determine the extent to which physical
assaults were related to the outcome measured.

INTRODUCTION

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme Court
overturned the ban on same-sex marriages, thereby making it
legal for same-sex couples to wed. Despite the recent victory for
the LGBT community, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender
citizens continue to experience challenges in their daily life due to a
significant number of citizens not accepting their lifestyle. Many of
the challenges include discrimination and physical assaults. Prior to
the 5–4 Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage and in response
to assaults on certain groups of people, the United States created laws
to protect people against crimes motivated, in whole or in part, by the
offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation,
or ethnicity / national origin (Department of Justice, 2004). While
the aforementioned intentions were good, the laws have not worked
as well as anticipated.

Presently, members of the LGBT community continue to be
assaulted due to their sexual orientation. Like other crimes, hate
crimes are recorded via the Uniform Crime Report (UCR). The UCR
is the largest database, compiled by the FBI, of crimes reported and
arrests made each year throughout the United States (Siegel, 2015).
However, the UCR is only as accurate as what is reported. In many
assaults, when the victim is lesbian, bisexual, gay, or transgender,
the act is often not reported. As a result of the aforementioned, law
enforcement is not aware of the assault, and it is never recorded on the
Uniform Crime Report. This makes it difficult to address the problem
of targeted assaults on members of the LGBT community. In addition,
when attacks are recorded by the UCR, they are not categorized into
victim demographics. The UCR does not take into account the rate
at which different races, genders, and age groups are victims of

PRiMARy ThEORiES Of CRiME AND ViCTiMizATiON

225

violent assaults due to their sexual orientation. Also, the UCR does
not identify or record the difference in victimization rates between
someone who is gay versus someone that is bisexual. It is important
to understand how often individuals of the LGBT community are
being assaulted. The purpose of this research is to examine the rate
at which members of the LGBT community are assaulted and to
identify if there are differences among the rates of victimization as it
relates to age, race, gender, and sexual orientation. The results from
this study will assist in identifying information that is not recorded
on the Uniform Crime Report and assist law enforcement personnel
with addressing the problems of targeted attacks on members of the
lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.

LITERATURE REVIEW

Some lesbian, gay, and bisexual citizens of the United States have
been forced to keep their sexual orientation a secret due to the fear of
being physically assaulted. In instances when their sexual orientation
has been discovered and an attack has occurred as a result, many do
not notify law enforcement. Failure to inform law enforcement of
targeted attacks results in inaccurate recording of hate crimes on the
Uniform Crime Report. There have been many studies that examined
the difference between the rate of victimization of heterosexual
citizens and citizens that are members of the LGBT community.

Previous LGBT Victimization Studies

Balsam and Rothblum (2005) conducted a study on victimization
over a life span. They compared victimization of lesbian, gay
bisexual, and heterosexual siblings. The purpose of the research was

226

JAMES R. JONES, Ph.D.

to examine if there was a difference in the rate of victimization over
the life span of the aforementioned sexual orientations.

The sample consisted of 557 gay/lesbian, 163 bisexual, and 525
heterosexual adults (Balsam & Rothblum, 2005). The research
suggests that sexual orientation was a significant predictor of most of
the victimization variables (Balsam & Rothblum, 2005). The research
also contends that compared with heterosexual participants, LGB
participants reported more childhood psychological and physical
abuse by parents or caretakers, more childhood sexual abuse, more
partner psychological and physical victimization in adulthood, and
more sexual assault experiences in adulthood (Balsam & Rothblum,
2005).

Unlike Balsam and Rothblum, Rothman, Exner, and Baughman
(2011) examined the prevalence of sexual assault victimization among
gay or bisexual (GB) men and lesbian or bisexual (LB) women in the
United States. Their research included a larger-than-normal sample
size. There were 139,635 participants in this study.

The results of the study suggest that lesbian or bisexual women
were more likely to report childhood sexual assault, adult sexual
assault, lifetime sexual assault victimization, and intimate partner
sexual assault victimization than gay or bisexual men, whereas gay
or bisexual men were more likely to report hate crime–related sexual
assault than lesbian or bisexual women (Rothman et al., 2011). This
study was unique because of the extremely large sample size, as well
as its focus on sexual assaults on members of the LGBT community.
Much of the current literature concentrates on physical assaults due
to sexual orientation.

While the majority of studies on victimization due to sexual
orientation focus on civilians, Burks’s (2011) research concentrates on
the rate of victimization on members of the LGBT community that are

PRiMARy ThEORiES Of CRiME AND ViCTiMizATiON

227

enlisted in the military. One of the major challenges in this study was
the underreporting of any type of assault due to sexual orientation.
Among samples of LGB individuals, some who experienced sexual
victimization also experienced negative consequences associated
with reporting the incidents, such as being outed, as well as negative
reactions by the individual’s social network (Todahl et al., 2009). It
was for this reason that obtaining accurate data was difficult and, in
some instances, impossible. Such experiences not only contribute to
fears of reporting their victimization to law enforcement but may also
contribute to the decision to not participate in research (Otis, 2007).

Due to the lack of compliance by participants to provide data that
was applicable for the study, the researcher was only able to obtain
minimal results. Burks (2011) found that in general, incidents of sexual
assault and harassment in the military are reported by women at rates
disproportionate to those for men. A significant amount of resistance
from participants in the study can be directly attributed to the Don’t
Ask, Don’t Tell policy created by the George W. Bush administration.

Many studies conducted on victimization due to sexual orientation
examined adults. However, D’Augelli (2003) studied victimization
experiences of lesbian and gay youth ages fourteen to twenty-one.
The purpose of the study was to analyze developmental challenges
and victimization experiences of female youth.

The results of the research found that half of the participants
experienced repetitive verbal abuse, 12 percent reported several
threats, and 7 percent had been assaulted multiple times (D’Augelli,
2003). The study also revealed that youth who had self-identified
as lesbian or bisexual or had told others of their sexual orientation
reported more lifetime sexual orientation victimization (D’Augelli,
2003). This study provides clear insight on the victimization of youth
that identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual. This research assisted in

228

JAMES R. JONES, Ph.D.

bridging the gap between what was discovered in adult research and
what was unknown as it related to juveniles who are members of
the LGBT community. However, due to the length of time since the
research was conducted, generalizing the results to current youth
may be challenging.

Summary

Lesbian, gay, and bisexual citizens have often been the target of
violent assaults in the United States due to their sexual orientations.
Many studies have been conducted to examine if there is a correlation
between certain variables and physical assault. However, much of the
research does not examine the rate at which members of the LGBT
community are assaulted and fail to identify if there are differences
among the rates of victimization as it relates to age, race, gender, and
sexual orientation.

METHODOLOGY

Purpose of Study

The purpose of this research is to examine the rate at which
members of the LGBT community are assaulted and to identify if
there are differences among the rates of victimization as it relates to
age, race, gender, and sexual orientation. While many studies in the
past have analyzed the difference between the rates of victimization
of heterosexual citizens and members of the LGBT community, much
of the research leaves a gap between comparative victimization rates
among age, race, gender, and sexual orientation. This study will
bridge the gap in the literature and contribute to the current body

PRiMARy ThEORiES Of CRiME AND ViCTiMizATiON

229

of knowledge, providing criminal justice professionals and policy
makers the ability to address the problems of targeted attacks on
members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.

Target Population and Participant Selection

The target population of this study consisted of American citizens
that were eighteen years of age or older and identify as lesbian, gay, or
bisexual. From this population, 198 participants made up the sample
size for this research. All races and genders were eligible to participate.

Sampling Procedure

Snowball sampling was used for this study. This sampling
technique was adopted because of the difficulty obtaining trust
from members of the LGBT community. Due to past negative
interactions between the aforementioned group and people that do
not support their lifestyle, lesbian, gay, and bisexual citizens were not
comfortable providing information on their experiences due to their
sexual orientation. As a result, the only way to obtain participants
for this research was through snowball sampling. Snowball sampling
begins by identifying a single subject of a small number of subjects
and then asking the subject(s) to identify others like him or her who
might be willing to participate in a study (Maxfield & Babbie, 2011).

Data Collection Procedures

Closed-ended surveys were provided to the participants.
Each survey was administered electronically and consisted of
five closed-ended questions. All the responses of the participants

230

JAMES R. JONES, Ph.D.

were confidential. Information received from the survey was the
participant’s race (coded as 1 for white and 2 for nonwhite), age
(coded as 1 for eighteen to twenty-four, 2 for twenty-five to thirty-
four, 3 for thirty-five to forty-four, and 4 for forty-five to fifty-four),
gender (coded as 1 for male and 2 for female), sexual orientation
(coded as 1 for gay and 2 for bisexual), and number of assaults due
to sexual orientation (coded as 1 for never, 2 for one time, 3 for two
times, and 4 for three or more times).

Data Analysis

The question created for this study was “How many times have
you been physically assaulted because of your sexual orientation?” In
the study, the independent variables were race, age, gender, and sexual
orientation. The dependent variable was rate of physical assault. An
ordinal regression was conducted to determine the extent to which
physical assaults were related to the outcome measured.

RESULTS

Description of Sample

The final sample consisted of 198 participants. As shown in table
1, the majority of the sample was female (62.1 percent) and white (67.7
percent). Due to the unequal distribution among racial categories,
race was coded into white and nonwhite for the analysis. The largest
percentage of participants was eighteen to twenty-four years of age
(40.4 percent). The majority of the sample did not identify as bisexual
(identified as gay or lesbian [62.6 percent]) and reported never having
been assaulted because of sexual orientation (60.1 percent).

Assault Rate

Although the overall model was not significant (p = .181),
being bisexual significantly predicted assault rate. Age was also
a significant predictor. In order to determine whether bisexual
orientation significantly predicted assault rate, an ordinal regression
was conducted on assault rate using bisexual orientation, gender,
race, and age as dummy-coded predictors in the model (see table
2). Because of the positively skewed distribution of assault rate, the
complementary log-log link was used in the model (Agresti, 2002).
Although the overall model was not significant, χ2 (6) = 8.86, p
= .181, Nagelkerke R2 = .050, bisexual orientation was a significant
predictor in the model (B = .532, p < .001). Given all predictors
in the model, the proportion of individuals identifying as bisexual
who were more likely to be the victims of assault (at any rate of
assault) was equal to the proportion of individuals identifying as
nonbisexual raised to the 𝑒0.532 = 1.702 power. These results indicated
that as likelihood of being assaulted increased for individuals
identifying as nonbisexual, the chances of being assaulted increased
at a greater rate for individuals identifying as bisexual. For example,
if individuals identifying as nonbisexual were 50 percent likely to
experience higher levels of assault, then individuals identifying as
bisexual were 30.7 percent more likely to experience higher levels of
assault than were individuals identifying as nonbisexual. Age was
also a significant predictor in the model. Given all predictors in the
model, as the likelihood of being assaulted increased from eighteen-
year-olds to twenty-four-year-olds, the chances of being assaulted
increased at a greater rate from thirty-five-year-olds to forty-four-
year-olds (B = .947, p .05.

DISCUSSIONS

While the research suggests that the majority of Americans that
identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual were never victims of physical
assaults due to their sexual orientation (60.1 percent), there is still a
cause for concern as the study recorded 39.9 percent that have been
victims of a physical assault at least one time in their lives due to
their sexual orientation. For those that were assaulted due to being

234

JAMES R. JONES, Ph.D.

lesbian, gay, or bisexual, they were often victimized three or more
times (21.7 percent). The study also indicates that bisexual citizens
experience physical assaults at greater rates than gay citizens. Finally,
the research also identified age as a predictor of physical assaults.
Lesbians, gays, and bisexuals of both genders, ages thirty-five to
forty-four, were at greater risk of being victims of a physical assault.

Recommendation for Future Research

The research identified at what rate members of the LGBT
community are victims of physical assaults due to their sexual
orientation. However, it did not examine physical appearance as a
predictor of violence. The survey provided to the participants did
not inquire about men and women whose appearance, presentation,
and/or mannerisms were gender nonconforming (K. Daly, personal
communication, July 3, 2015). As a result, it was impossible to
identify if a physical attack was based on a more visible issue of
gender presentation and gender nonconformity (which is a largely
publicly accessible and visual apparent), as opposed to sexual
orientation, which may be assumed by some attackers but is less
readily quantified by an attacker and less readily confirmed by him
or her as well (K. Daly, personal communication, July 3, 2015).

CONCLUSION

The United States recently legalized same-sex marriage (June
26, 2015) for all the states in America. The aforementioned action
by the US Supreme Court shows evidence of the country moving
more toward equality. However, while the government is beginning
to recognize and enforce equality for all groups of people, individual

PRiMARy ThEORiES Of CRiME AND ViCTiMizATiON

235

citizens are not as supportive. Despite the majority of members of
the LGBT community not being victims of physical assaults due
to their sexual orientation per the results of this study, the rates at
which those that are victimized still warrant monitoring. Nearly 40
percent of those that identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual experience
being physically assaulted due to their sexual orientation. While
not the majority, the number is still alarming. It is important for US
lawmakers and law enforcement officials to recognize the rate of
assaults occurring due to sexual orientation and construct methods
to have them significantly decreased.
