AVFMS Mega-Post: 10 Reasons False Rape Accusations are Common
Feminists and their ideological allies routinely dismiss and trivialize the experiences of men falsely accused of rape by claiming that “only 2% of rape accusations are false – the same as false reports of other crimes.” They also invoke this claim as a rationalization to erode due process for the wrongly accused – especially in academia where male students are often effectively guilty until proven innocent.
The 2% claim is more than just an erroneous figure. It is a lie. Substantial evidence exists which – when taken together - confirms that false rape accusations occur substantially more often than false reports of other crimes.
