False Rape Accusations

Rape is a disgusting, horrible crime. However, making false accusations about it is even worse. Not only can they potentially ruin the life and reputation of an innocent man, but they make it harder for real rape cases to be prosecuted. Perhaps what’s even more disgusting than false rape accusations is how little of a punishment the accuser actually receives. For instance, a woman in the UK received no jail time after falsely accusing 8 different men of rape. A woman in Seattle was sentenced to 8 days and a $250 fine (with money and jail time suspended) after falsely accusing a professor of rape. What makes this case even worse is that the professor was suspended from his job and had to spend 9 days in jail before he was cleared. Radical feminists and overzealous prosecutors don’t believe that these things can happen, but unfortunately, it’s all too common. What makes things worse is our media and society. Sure we know that the accused is supposed to be innocent before proven guilty, and that there is a world of difference between being accused of something and actually having done it, but nowadays, especially when it comes to crimes against women, the mentality seems to be guilty period, regardless of weather there is a chance that the accused might not have done it. Look at the Kobe Bryant* and Duke lacrosse cases. The former, among other things has the alleged ‘victim’ having sex with two men several hours after the alleged rape. The latter was the result of a malicious prosecutor which tried to make a race issue where there was none. While both of these men have managed to rebound after the incident, there are several others who must bear the scarlet letter, and deal with having their lives disrupted and their reputations destroyed. One such person is Nathaniel Lewis, who had to spend 5 years in jail, costing him a potential football career and his college life before being cleared of raping a fellow University of Akron student. There are rape shield laws and victim’s anonymity laws to protect victims, while the accuser’s name and face are splashed all over the media. Things like this only showcase the flaws in our justice system. A more acceptable punishment for many of these women would be for them to serve the amount of time the accused would have been sent to, but in many cases, they barely get any jail time at all. Meanwhile, the accused has to bear the stigma of being a rapist, financial problems from attorney’s fees and court costs, and the time they lost. This is another example of how certain types of women claim to want to be equal to men, but still want special treatment for being women.


*I’m not letting Kobe off the hook. He has a loving wife, a basketball career and sponsorships bringing millions a year, and the admiration of millions of children, all of which he almost pissed away for some pussy. He bought this whole misfortune on himself. However, this does not mean that he deserves to go to jail or have his reputation slandered for something that he didn’t do.
