„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.
Given the inherent flaws in measuring criminological behavior, the rate of false rape accusations cannot be dictated by any individual criterion. Instead it must be triangulated by multiple factors. Ten of those factors are listed below.
This is a compilation-style AVFMS post with extensive source citations. Let it be a resource to anyone interested in raising awareness of the problem of false accusations and challenging those who dare repeat the lie that only 2% of rape claims are false.“ – Zum Artikel:
