Nothing remotely amusing about this, submitter. Not only does this make it more difficult for women who have been sexually assaulted, but she false accused an innocent man of a crime that could have very well ruined his life had she not admitted lying.

I'd counter-accuse her of rape rather than admit to willingly bed her. Is, too, funny, Bathia.

A deliberately false claim of rape should result in a jail sentence for the accuser exactly equivalent to what the accused would have potentially served.

Look at that face. I'm thinking the guy wasn't the reason the sex was bad. (certainly not the only reason).

Police charged her with filing a false report. A bond was set at $2,000.

Of course, the man she accused was look at what, 10 years? This seems fair.

She's just been charged. I"m sure there will be other punative measures when she either pleads guilty or is found guilty by a jury of her peers.

Of course she won't spend the rest of her life on a sex offender registry which her unskilled paramour narrowly avoided.

should be a felony
and should have a pretty big penalty attached to it ...

on the other hand, if the penalty is TOO large, then the women who file false reports might be LESS likely to admit they lied in the first place ....

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
maybe death penalty ....
that would put the FEAR of filing a false rape charge in the first place

sigh
at least the cops did their jobs and charged her

The problem is proving a false report as opposed to one you can't prove. Rape culture still exists, and women are still afraid to acknowledge when they've been raped for fear that they won't be believed.

Hero tag for the police and prosecutor? maybe?

I would have used something other than assinine .... what do we have for someone who should be beaten senseless for CRYING RAPE? Scary isnt scary enough. Horrific.

Poor guy, removing the stench of being accused of rape can be very hard.
She should have to stand with a placard for a month or two.
"My name is LYNETTE LEE. I falsely accused a man of raping me. I am a HORRIBLE person. Here are some tomatoes to throw at me."

Would also be sweet if he could sue her in civil court. Probably can.

Believe me, I know. And in the end, the LAST thing that we want is these women NOT coming forward and admitting that they lied in the first place. Bad enough that the poor buy might end up in prison (RE: the case in NC? which she recanted and he is still in prison).

The worst part is the damage this does to actual rape victims. At some point, more and more rapists start to use the story. "NOW, she is just trying to get me in trouble.", "Not my fault that she ...."

shudder
farking hate people like this and the damage they do to improving the cause

This.

There is nothing amusing about this, at all. Not only did she ruin the life of a man who is innocent, by her own admission, she has furthered the rape culture which makes women unlikely to come forward and admit they were actually raped.

The tag was originally "amusing", but that was changed. "Hero" tag might work if there was a notation at the end of the headline as to whom the tag was for.

Anti-rape, yes. Anti-things-that-support-rape, probably not. Victim blaming, ostracization of those that have been victimized, attacks on women as "sluts" while men that get laid often are "studs"... those are all part of rape culture.

Is it time yet to change the law to be fair?

I'm all for protecting the name of the accuser in the case of rape but if, and only if, we also protect the name of the accused until after the trial. If he's found guilty, then put his name in every paper, but until then he deserves just as much right not to have his name dragged through the mud as she does.

She should at least have to pay for a billboard to be put up in her home town, with her name and face on it, saying that she lied about being raped and that billboard has to stay up for at least three years.

Holy farkshiat, I agree with something this troll said. Were the Mayans right? Is it ending soon?

Yes. Untill someone has been proven guilty in a court of law, the names of either party should never be public information. Once accused, even if proven innocent, it's too damn difficult to shake loose that reputation.

Oddly enough, I think that's reasonable. Though since sometimes one accuser brings others out of their hiding spots, maybe that wouldn't work.

Goddamnit. This is exactly the kind of woman who helps idiots like Todd Akin perpetuate the myth that, at best, there are different kinds of rape. At worst, she makes all women look like they want the sex every single time and just decide afterward that they didn't want it after all.

Well, this man has been accused of things twice. Once was rape. The other was poor sexual performance. He should be able to put contrary testimony on the local news.

The woman was horrible in claiming rape. She has been charged with filing a false police report and I hope she is vigorously prosecuted, to the fullest extent of the law.

This does bring up a related point, however, which is: Don't fark people you just met. Had the defendant not come clean, the guy could have easily had weeks, months, or even years (if he was convicted) ruined with dealing with this case, not to mention expenses in hiring a lawyer, adverse impact to his reputation and/or job prospects, etc.

Best to wait till marriage, or at least until your relationship has been steady for a long enough period of time that the other party cannot easily cry rape.

Think it's remotely possible that she didn't understand the definition of rape?
Or that some not-agreed-to act occurred, and she didn't understand that going to a hotel room means you get the package deal, whatever he wants?
I know, everybody ought to know these things, but mild intellectual disability maybe? Possibly combined with being "protected" from sex education?
These things do happen ya know.

I'm impressed at the focus on what's important in here: Everything is women's fault. Rape culture occurs because of false rape accusations, preventing false rape accusations is more important than allowing rape victims to come forward, people like this complicate the definition rape and consequently make rapists more sympathetic (though anyone who suggests there's male-driven rape culture is just wrong because we all totally know rape is bad)...just really impressive.

Exception Collection is my hero for the night. Everyone else can fark off back to reddit. One forum full of rape apologists was enough, thank you very much.

So... why are we believing the woman's second story instead of the first one? Isn't it quite possible that she in fact was raped, but recanted her (true) accusation? It is a fairly well-documented phenomenon that actual victims of legitimate rape sometimes do just that, for any number of reasons.
