Is it legitimate rape when up to 90% of reported rape accusations are false claims?

According to in-depth studies about the frequently of false rape claims, it's been determined that between 45% - 90% of rape accusations are lies by the supposed "victim" to get back at a former loved one for purposes of revenge.

Is this what the left defends?

    That is a real issue. They ruin lives to protect themselves and when found to be false they are rarely prosecuted or sued.

    They make people doubt real crimes when they happen.

    There are definitely VERY, only a few false rape accusations made. I am learning this in family legislation right now. For any person to return ahead a few rape is most commonly an act of courage. The false accuser should not get off scott-free - if nothing else the character she victimized must appear at a civil motion. Did he then go to the police and file a false arrest, and so forth record or did he just trust the system to reach out and right itself?

    Wow. Speechless. Did you even read what you posted? It gave some very small sample sizes but said that virtually all agree that the number of false rape accusations was in the 2-8% range. Of course this is more than offset by those who are raped and are too afraid to come forward. We on the left do not defend false rape accusations. We just think that men trying to claim that 'she must have wanted it" if there is not physical force used are plain old misogynists and have no place in congress much less the White House.

    Erm...you seem to be lying and are dumb enough to reference sources that tell the truth and reveal your lie. You're a bit thick.

    The wiki link you posted states the figure as up to 8% in both USA and UK.

    The Cambridge journal article you link to is about how the fear of false accusation had been used justify changes to rules about what is classed as admissible evidence. The conclusion is that this fear is not founded in any evidence but is is a general anxiety.

    Is this laughable and blatant disregard of the facts what the right defends?

    Hahahaha, did you just call it an in-depth study and then say that they determined false rape accusations to be between 45% - 90%? Do you realise how bad you have to be at your job to end up only knowing that it was between less than half or almost all of them?

    1. The majority of rape is never reported to the police.

    2. Are you saying it's better to ignore allegations of rape simply because not all of them are true?

    3. If you give me your address i'm going top ******* rape your asshole until it bleeds and then keep going with a broom stick until you're coughing up blood you sick ****

    Can you even read? Look back at your sources and you will see that most studies put the number of unfounded rape charges between 2-8 %. Do you have poor reading comprehension skills, or are you simply lieing to get your point across?

  • Interesting. You read that mass of data, most of which place the number of unfounded rape accusations (which does not mean false, it is a much less strict standard) at 2-8%, except for a couple of highly contentious studies, and you read 45-90% false?

    Wow.

    Bullsh*t. Do you not think we're going to read your links?

    The Cambridge link only says that fear of false allegations affects rape law.

    From the Wiki page:

    UK--2,643 sexual assault cases (Kelly, Lovett, and Regan, 2005). Of these, 8% were classified by the police department as false reports.

    FBI-- FBI reports consistently put the number of "unfounded" rape accusations around 8%...although some unfounded cases of rape may be false or fabricated, not all unfounded cases are false.

    Australia--with 850 rapes reported to the Victoria police...2.1% of these were classified by police as false reports.

    Kanin's report of 41% was from ONE small community, hardly an "in-depth report." In fact, again from the link:

    "it is not a scientific study of the issue of false reporting of rape. It certainly should never be used to assert a scientific foundation for the frequency of false allegations."

    "Small sample sizes and non-representative samples preclude generalizability."

    that's misleading. actually over 50% of real rape goes unreported and it's even higher than that for prison rape.

    That Assange crap is just a big lie though. That woman that accused him wasn't a prostitute she was a political activist and an admitted feminist.

    Rape is still a sin and we protect the preciousness of the womb . A perpetrator of the crime that violates righteous intimacy is still responsible for their perverted act.I hOPE that one day we will know immediately when someone is violated in such a heinous manner who that vile beast is and swiftly prosecuted.

    THE QUESTION ,I have is who are doing all these rapes. DO women love men?HAVE we given them anything to love us for recently?

    The problem is that you are ignoring the lower end of the range. And in all honesty, the range given is FAR too large.

    Now there do exist false claims, I do not deny that. What the left defends is the cases in which there WAS rape (of any sort).
