  • 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.

    This. I hate women who do this sort of thing.
  • 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).
  • Maybe prison would have been good for him. He was clearly desperate for a relationship.
  • 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.

    Of all the false rapes, this one's the funniest. Not like that stripper in the Duke case. That was just money.
  • If that guy wasn't embarrassed before...

    That's why you do oral.

    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.

    I was worried that it might be the case. I was HAPPY to see that she was being charged.
    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.
    Defamation of Character?

    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.

    Did mods change the tag or something? Cause I didn't see any amusement.

    false rape accusations are no laughing matter, unless you're falsely accusing a clown of rape.
  • That is so low. Fark you, lady.
  • Exception Collection: Rape culture still exists


    Not where I'm at. Everyone around here is pretty anti-rape.
  • Well fellas, there you have it. Put some effort into it next time... it pays off in more ways than one, apparently.

    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.

  • I want to strangle women who do this. Rape is a real problem; making false accusations trivializes the issue and makes it harder for women who have been raped.
