Faced Trial Jailed
Professor Kanan' s major study of a Midwestern US. city over the course of
l . . WM”! nine years found that 41 percent of all rape claims were false. Kanan also studied the

that he had ta Jed her.
50% of the 64 rapes reported to campus police were determined to be false, without the

Behavior Feb 1994 (12))

the accusers recanted, and an independent evaluation revealed a false accusation rate
of 60%. (McDowell, Charles P., . D. False Allegations. Forensic Science Digest,

The thing that always confused me is, how in the bloody **** nuggets do you go about calculating the number of rapes that are not reported?

lets think here for just one second

they claim to have
an exact number
of rapes
that were not reported

x number of women never told anyone they were raped
if they never told anyone, how the blueberry *********** do you know about it?

how does this **** work? What, do rapists keep detailed journals of their rapes? Police catch one and look through his records and go, "well **** , only 2 of these women told us he raped them, and this ledger here lists at least 2000 women he raped."

I want to see the methodology for calculating these statistics, because I sure as **** cannot fathom any possible way of having an official record of things not submitted to an official record.

and whats more i cant fathom why a rape would go unreported in the first place
what the **** is stopping them?
User avatar #67 to #11 - xdeathspawnx (08/30/2013) [-]
My guess would be that someone was too embarrassed or didn't want to have to deal with all of the things that would come with accusing someone. They might think it would be easier just to let it go.

Well, in the military, it is often fear of a superior officer. Or, it is a fear of the shame it will bring to the victim - i.e slut-shaming - as well as fear that they will be assaulted again by that same individual or someone else.

Fear and shame - society has a habit of blaming the victims of rape and not the assailants.

Self report studies (surveys) administred on a representative sample, so you can estimate how large the 'dark number' is compared to official statistics (i.e. registred crimes). There are some methodological problems however, but for now it is still one of the more valid and reliable methods available in criminological research.

If a female is raped, and doesn't report it to the police.    
You ask a room full of females to anonymously answer a few questions regarding rape.    
>Have you been raped before?   
>Did you tell the police you were raped?

Example Numbers are fictional i just want to make a point
They ask 100 Womens if they get raped at some point of there life.
20 say yes 80 say no.
They go to the 80 Women again and let them talk to a psychologist who finds out if there is any women that dont want to tell it.
Lets say there were 10 of them who dont want to say it.
Here comes the easy part: On average there are 10 women who dont reportet rape.
In all the world there are 200 reportet cases. So there "must" be 100 more somewhere.

Sorry if my englisch sux i hope u guys understand my point

I personally think that a woman found to have falsely accused someone of rape should bear the same sentence an actual rapist would. An accusation of rape can be just as damaging, if not moreso, to the accused as a rape is to a person.

I agree that its a good idea in theory, but the government would never be able to put a law like that into effect without feminist losing their mind about it and saying that it would discourage actual victims from reporting rape out of fear.

A woman OR man that falsely accuses.

User avatar #15 to #13 - bigfriendlyginger ONLINE (08/29/2013) [-]
Well really if you think about it the person making false accusations should get a MUCH longer sentence, because the following crimes can be laid against them

1 Slander in that they have publicly smeared the accused's reputation with false accusations; and having such accusations could harm their livelihood and make it harder to find employment later on in life if it shows on a basic internet search such as some companies use

2 they have wasted police time in that they have had to locate, bring in, possibly incarcerate (temporarily or otherwise) the falsely accused and also make an investigation in which time they could well have been saving lives and assisting ACTUAL rape victims in getting the justice they deserve

3 "IF" they appear in court and claim they where raped by the accused while he is on trial then they have lied in court/under oath which is an immensely serious crime for obvious reasons

not really a legality but a huge consideration would be that by laying this accusation against the falsely accused they are putting their own guilt/pride/vanity above another living breathing person's life and well being as well as those who rely upon them.

as well as those it should be considered that not only would the slander I mention earlier cause problems with the falsely accused's work life, but also personal as people they know, care about and love could very well turn against them or have their faith in them shaken as a result of the accusations and as you can see in the content these comments are posted on people have and unfortunately will be attacked, seriously injured/crippled or killed by the current era equivalent to "lynch mobs" and vigilante justice which I personally would see as indirect manslaughter/murder as the individual making false claims has brought this all about, whether intentional or not.

least importantly the accused may have had to pay for a defence lawyer purely to make sure they are not unjustly punished and should be compensated

tl;dr just felt like putting some reasons on Suitup's comment in case some muggings disagrees with no good reason.
User avatar #23 to #13 - TheMather ONLINE (08/29/2013) [-]
I don't think any sane man would falsely accuse anyone of rape though. I mean, to admit to having been raped for a man would be a huge shame, to falsely cry rape would just be pointless social suicide.
Not that the law shouldn't be gender neutral, but there was no reason to correct yourself.

Hope this will ever be enacted as a law, the amounts of false accuses would then decrease significantly

WHY do people do this? This not only ***** up the lives of people who are falsely accused, but it also gives a bad name to people who WERE actually raped.
User avatar #71 to #6 - xdeathspawnx (08/30/2013) [-]
because they know its the easiest way they can turn around a situation in their favor, and they don't care whether they hurt others during the process. A pregnant teen is looked down on by society and called a slut, while a pregnant teen who was raped is given pity and looked at as brave. I consider it as bad, if not worse of a crime than actually raping someone. When someone is raped, they only have to deal with one bad thing happening to them (even if it is really bad). Someone who is falsely accused could end up spending a huge part of their life in prison and will be viewed as a criminal by everyone they know.

Because they regret sleeping with that guy and when their boyfriend finds out they call rape. Its someone else's life so they don't care. Its stupid and selfish and it gives women a bad rap. And I apologize for the dumb whores of my gender.

Amen. You have to learn to handle yourself around people. If you get bad vibes from someone, avoid that person as they are making you feel unsafe.

And, some guys should step up more and if they see someone leading an inebriated person to a bedroom, or slipping something into their drink, or carrying someone off to a bedroom, stop that ******* that is doing it.

Everyone needs to learn to control their impulses. Don't drink over your limit, don't 'smack that ass' or whatever if a gal is dressed a certain way - rape is inexcusable, as is falsely accusing someone of rape when in reality you got drunk and ****** someone who you had zero intention of starting a relationship with or cheated on your significant other with.

Everyone needs to cut the god damn bull **** .

maybe feminists should go after false accusers for a change, instead of assuming all accusations are true. After all, women who falsely accuse hurt the reputation of women as a whole and make it more difficult for claims to be believed.

This is a tricky subject, as intimidation and shame greatly affect a large portion of rape victims. Many rapes, of men and women, aren't reported, as they may feel it is their fault, they should have stopped it, they're a whore, etc. so the data skews both ways.

The thing I can't possibly fathom about false rape claims is that they think their own pride or shame is more important than ACTUAL rape victims. Sure, maybe you really don't like that guy, or that you had sex with that guy - but is that REALLY a good reason to put vulnerable and damaged rape victims through hell?

At the same time though we have to realize that many rapes go unreported. An ex of mine was raped at 14 and she was stopped herself from saying anything after she started getting bullied about it by people saying she wanted it and deserved it.

This really hits home with me because my brother was accused of rape when he was in school. He never did and she told the truth before the trial finally went through, but for the rest of his years in high school he was constantly mocked and bullied, being called a rapist in the hallways and in the classes. This is ******** that false accusations are not punished because it ruined my brother, who had scholarships lined up for hockey and was going to college to be a lawyer. He had to give up those dreams because of one girls lie.

semen doesn't prove it was rape only that there was penetration

There will also usually be signs of aggression, such as bruising. However, one may simply use intimidation to assure that the victim won't attempt to resist.

This is also all assuming the rapist is a man. It is much harder to prove rape if the rapist is a woman.

I strongly disagree. I don't think crime should be rewarded with more crime.
User avatar #45 to #34 - schmitty (08/30/2013) [-]
I am of the mindset that people should get punishments that fit their crime, sometimes even more so. If someone wants to falsely accuse someone of rape, then that person should at least have some type of experience akin to what they are accusing someone of, so that they know just how serious an offense they accused somebody of. This is no unsimilar to a parent telling a crying child that they will give them something to cry about. However there is a huge difference between falsely accusing someone of a rape that didn't happen, and having the wrong guy accused for a rape that actually happened.
