Feminists Lie About Rape

Posted on | March 24, 2015 | 47 Comments

In the comments on an earlier post about the UVA rape hoax, someone appended a list of similar hoaxes perpetrated at colleges. The original source of this list appears to be by Eric Owens at the Daily Caller:

  • In 1990, Mariam Kashani, a sophomore at George Washington University, who was a rape counselor and worked for a rape crisis hotline, told the school newspaper about a white woman who was raped by two black men on campus. The men held the woman at knifepoint and the men had “particularly bad body odor”. When the two men were finished, Kashinai said, they laughed at the woman and told her she was “pretty good for a white girl”.
    When her story crumbled, Kashani said she was really sorry and insisted that she “had hoped the story, as reported, would highlight the problems of safety for women”.
  • In April 1991, Princeton University student Mindy Brickman falsely accused a fellow Princeton student of raping her, spreading her claim through conversations around campus. She also repeated the smear at a campus “take back the night” rally.
    Once Brickman’s claim fell apart, she wrote an apology in the pages of the Princetonian newspaper: “I never intended for anyone to be hurt by my statements, which were intended to raise awareness for the plight of the campus rape victims”.
  • In 1993 at Oberlin College, a “take back the night” group posted a number of signs on campus labeling an apparently randomly-chosen, innocent freshman as “Rapist of the Month”. An 18-year-old male student, a philosophy major, was retrieving his mail when he first saw the signs calling him a rapist. He tore down the signs and had to deny the allegation to his friends.
    “I haven’t even dated at Oberlin,” the student insisted. “I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. I couldn’t have gotten myself in that kind of situation.” A friend described him as “almost boring”.
    Sophomore Emily Lloyd suggested that critics of the falsehood were missing the “take back the night” group’s larger point. “So many women get their lives totally ruined by being assaulted and not saying anything,” Lloyd explained. “So if one guy gets his life ruined, maybe it balances out.”
  • In November 2004, Desiree Nall, a student at Rollins College in Winter Park FL and the president of the local chapter of the National Organization for Women, told police during Sexual Assault Awareness Week that two men raped her in a bathroom on campus.
    Police became skeptical of Nall’s claims after she couldn’t keep her story straight and was unable to provide descriptions of the two men, and an examination at a sexual assault treatment center showed no evidence of any sexual assault.
    Nall, 23, eventually recanted her fake rape allegations. Police suggested that Nall could have been attempting to “make a statement” about sexual assault, and ultimately spent $50,000 investigating Nall’s imaginary claims. Nall was charged for making a false statement to police. Her husband defended her, insisting the cops targeted her because “she is a women’s-rights activist”.
  • In February 2013, Morgan Triplett, 20, visited the University of California, Santa Cruz for a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender conference. While there, she claimed that she had been raped in broad daylight on the campus. The bizarre truth is that she successfully used Craigslist to locate a stranger who agreed to beat her up in exchange for sex. Her first ad sought somebody to shoot her in the shoulder. Her second ad, seeking someone willing to “punch, kick and bruise her” panned out.
    Triplett met her unnamed mangler in Santa Cruz, he beat her up and they had sex. She used a cellphone screen reflection as a mirror to see if the injuries were sufficient, and then told him to pummel her some more. With fresh bruises to substantiate her tale, Triplett then informed 911 that a mysterious assailant had raped and battered her while she was walking on a path looking for banana slugs — the UCSC mascot.
  • In April 2013, former University of Florida student 22-year-old Tanya Borachi said a man dressed in black and wearing a black mask and gloves brutally tied her hands and gagged her while she was getting out of her car. She only got away, she claimed, by kicking the man in the groin and running, still tied and gagged. Her roommate, who fell for her story, unbound her.
    Boarchi initially defended her fabricated story by saying that she was trying to teach the world “a lesson to women in the area that an attack could happen to them”. Police charged Boarchi with filing a false police report.

Feminists do this deliberately — purposefully making false claims of rape — because it advances their ideological agenda.

People need to wake the hell up.

    Nall was charged for making a false statement to police. Her husband defended her…

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, the poor whittle feminist needed her husband to defend her? Anyone else see the disconnect? And the belly jiggling laughter?

    The psychology of this is fascinating. They create a faux reality and steep themselves in it to the point of mental breakdown when actual reality does not conform. Thus, they have to acknowledge the the fact that their reality is flawed, which they cannot do and stay sane. Instead, they take the most outlandish steps to fabricate the reality which is in their heads. It’s like me attempting to raise awareness of evil poultry farmers by eating a pound of raw chicken.

    To be fair, a lot of the impetus towards false reporting was learned by the movement’s members back when telling the truth about sexual assault didn’t get results nearly as much as it should have, and was reflexively passed down to successive generations even after conditions improved somewhat. Even today, while I certainly believe false rape reports are more frequent than most feminists believe or would admit, I’m not sure it can be plausibly claimed that the false reports outnumber the unreported real assaults, or the reported but never adequately investigated / successfully prosecuted assaults. That doesn’t excuse the false reports, but it illuminates, for me, something of the desperation that drives such wolf-criers to do what they do.

    Things like this have the opposite effect for those who think the rape and sexual assault of women should be taken seriously.

    I think it depends upon who’s receiving the report. Reports and complaints which are (relatively) contemporaneous with the alleged assault made to law enforcement have more indicia of truth than those made months later to entities which have no police power. You’ll note most of the false police reports lacked physical evidence which one would normally expect to exist given the nature of the allegations. (The Craigslist exception truly boggles the mind and is relatively rare, I think. Truly the fruit of a diseased mind.)

    Where the problem exists is in those claims made solely to quasi-administrative bodies so long after the fact that any physical evidence would have disappeared. Witnesses may be unavailable or the passage of time may have clouded their memories. As our host said, the whole mess devolves into a swearing contest at best. Where cases such as these break down for the specious accuser is in the embellishment of the story with details which become easily checked. Jackie was easily proven to be a fraud because she a) cited a party which didn’t happen and b) fabricated witness statements and c) a boyfriend among other things, i.e. the bed of glass shards upon which the gang rape took place.

    Emily Sulkowicz’s story lacks those embellishments which makes it harder–though not impossible–to disprove her story. As I said in an earlier thread, social media is a gold mine in these cases for “defendants” to mine for exonerating posts and other evidence.

    Agreed, and certainly I have much less sympathy for deliberately engineered false claims against randomly selected targets than I do for people who are browbeaten by those they may admire or look up to into claiming — possibly believing themselves — that a subpar sexual encounter actually “qualifies” in hindsight as rape. But the desperation still resonates with me, in the end: I imagine the logic as being something like, “If people aren’t going to take the problem seriously at its current level, we have to make it look worse and worse until they do, however we can.”

    Even then, though, my sympathy drops markedly when I remember that one of the few practical prevention schemes for “rape culture” — i.e. implementing changes in behaviour like not getting drunk among strangers, not participating in “hookups”, maintaining public standards of modesty — has always been universally rejected as “blaming the victim”. Yes, nothing is guaranteed and assault can happen to anyone, anytime — but certain measures *can make it less likely*, and this is the reality people refuse to acknowledge.

    Social revolution requires destruction of the current social order, which requires destruction of the family, since that has always been the keystone.

    Lifetime marriage is down for most social groups, but is still popular among the college-educated. So, they need to drive men off of college campuses and generate distrust among the ones that are left.

    It is a weird and twisted logic, but self-consistent.

    A now ironic quote from the feminist embraced novel Jane Eyre has Rochester saying “offering a premium on incapacity: I shall now endeavor to fail.”

    That is simple human nature. It is the bottom of a con game, and of welfare. Give people an inch and they’ll take a mile. Play into human weakness and don’t be surprised we build statues to weakness. Put a premium on being a victim and that’s what is valued. This is especially dangerous for women with mental health issues as it buys into their meticulously constructed fantasies of a world out to harm them.

    The obvious point: these are only the stories about which we know. How many other rape allegations have been falsified?

    That is the same logic used by the activists: we only know of a small percentage of the rapes which occur, because so many go unreported to the police. Using that logic, they balloon the number of reported rapes into something much larger — one in five, one in four, one in whatever — to make their case.

    But the odds that we know of every case of a false rape claim are vanishingly small. Why couldn’t the percentage of undiscovered falsities be just as large as the feminists claim the number of unreported rapes to be?

    It is necessary for feminists to live in a rape culture because otherwise they’re left with the proven false claim of pay inequality, and then absolutely silly complaints at male courtesy where holding a door is a microaggression.

    Just as it is necessary for gun grabbers to live in a world where every NRA member daily storms a school with a fully automatic weapon and slaughters children by the thousand.

    Just as it is necessary for the racial grievance peddlers to live in a world where racist cops shoot black men for no reason at all and Mayor DeBlasio is terrified for his biracial son’s safety at the hands of his own police department.

    Just as it is necessary for the media to live in a nation where respect for the Constitution is prima facie evidence of racism.

    Otherwise they may have to face real problems, and those are difficult and sometimes hazardous to approach.

    This is about far more than straightforward crime. Part of rape culture is the idea women live in fear and that rape is underreported. This kind of feminism is out to frame men for crimes they did not do. Their rhetoric stinks of it and analogies to blood libels. People shouldn’t underestimate how mentally addled and hostile some of these people are. There is no benefit of the doubt or innocent until proven guilty for men in gender feminism. The mere existence of heterosexuality and masculinity is itself an immoral act.

    I’ve mentioned before that I was falsely accused a couple of decades ago by a girl that I’d never even slept with, because she thought she was psychic or something and wanted to establish a pattern of allegations to increase the credibility of my supposed future victims.

    (It helped that she didn’t really know me at all. My public face was that of a nerdy scholar — apparently her stereotype for a predator — but I was also a party animal, and spent my Thursday nights drinking into the wee hours of the morning with a dozen+ friends.)

    The recent spate of articles reminded me of that, and I realized that I can’t remember her name. I can’t picture her face.

    I remember reading somewhere that if you look at survey results for self-reports of what someone did to you — I forget if it was DV, SV, or a combination — the last-year numbers for men and women aren’t that different, but the lifetime numbers really diverge.

    Separately, I’ve also read that women are much more likely than men to ruminate, calling up bad memories and chewing on them some more like cud. And, that’s a simple explanation for why the lifetime memories of men and women diverge more than their last-year memories.

    I think that when activists cite the lifetime numbers and ignore the last-year numbers, they’re inadvertently calling attention to one of the less-attractive feminine traits. I never would’ve noticed that divergence if they hadn’t been trying to demonize men, forcing reasonable people to look behind the headlines.
