The False Rape Culture

Here's a feminist gloating about George Will losing his column in an article titled, "Misogynist George Will DUMPED from major newspaper for horrible rape column!!!

Will's Column was about false rape allegations on campus, and the feminists are horrified that anybody would challenge their flagship political weapon of the rape culture. A part of the column that particularly offended the feminist nasties:

"...when they make victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges, victims proliferate."

Is this a privileged status for women? What do you call it when a 'victim' makes crap up that can ruin a man's life, and there are no repercussions at all when she is outed? I call that pretty privileged.

Will of course, is being punished for speaking the truth. I was recently watching a made for TV movie called Sea Change, which is part of the Jesse Stone stories. In this story, the an 18 year old girl makes a false rape allegation against an older man. The movie paints him as a pervert, because he is older, and the girl the victim, even know they admit that she had given consent. This is complete and utter Hollywood crap. Particularly when they honor people like Micheal Jackson and Roman Polanski, known child molesters. When it's one of their own, they cover their ass of course. Fricken Gerbil racers.

How about a more famous case, the Duke Lacrosse team scandal? The reporting was relentless in the main stream media, hammering the privileged, wealthy, white  jocks, creatures of the patriarchy and bane of feminists everywhere, victimizing a poor girl. Duke starts throwing coaches and players under the bus at the cyclic rate. Until we find out that the poor girl made the who thing up. Then the media went radio silent on the whole affair.

Here's an article in my favorite online publication (NOT), Salon, where the illustrious Laura Miller writes:

"The less-acknowledged tragedy of the Duke lacrosse scandal is the damage it has done to the real victims of rape, who often struggle to be believed even though law enforcement officials estimate that only 8 percent of all rape accusations are false. Mangum’s lurid lies also overshadowed the witnessed and undisputed bad behavior of the players, particularly the ugly sexual and racial epithets they hurled at the dancers. In their rush to judgment, doctrinaire Duke faculty members who pounced on the accusation as “proof “of the racism and misogyny purportedly rampant at Duke ruined any opportunity to discuss those issues constructively, as opposed to merely grandstanding."

Trying to turn the shit back on the players of course, despicable commentary after all they'd already been though. The less-than-illustrious Miller barely mentions the woman that made the crap up, who is at the heart of the matter. Barely a couple of lines, and hints that mental illness caused her to create the mess. And I guess that eight percent of false allegations are OK to her. But we all know that number is a lot higher. Even if it were eighty percent, that would be OK, wouldn't it Laura Miller? Can I call you Laura?

The Wikipedia article on the incident states:

"Soon after the allegations were made, 88 Duke professors (referred to sometimes as the "Group of 88", sometimes referred to as the "Gang of 88") from the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences placed an ad in The Chronicle referring to the circumstances surrounding the allegations as a "social disaster" and quoting primarily anonymous individuals citing racism and sexism in the Duke community. The advertisement concluded, "We're turning up the volume [...] To the students speaking individually and to the protesters making collective noise, thank you for not waiting and for making yourselves heard," and "These are the students shouting and whispering about what happened to this young woman."[24] Notable signatories included Houston BakerMiriam CookeAnne AllisonCathy DavidsonAriel DorfmanMichael HardtAlice KaplanClaudia KoonzPedro LaschWalter MignoloMark Anthony Neal and Alex Rosenberg. The ad was spearheaded by faculty member Wahneema Lubiano."


"In January 2007, many months after the initial print of the ad, a new letter was posted at the Concerned Duke Faculty website signed by 87 faculty members stating that the original ad was misinterpreted.[25] The letter states that the intent of the original ad was to address issues of racism and sexism in the community and not to prejudge the case."

So they created their own social disaster, by backing up the false allegation and piecing together a lynch mob. What happened to Wahneema Lubiano? Nothing. He's still a professor of African American studies at Duke. Untouchable for anything, of course.

Now let me come to the incident that I know about. Twenty years ago when I was an undergrad, a fellow Marine Sergeant who was also a student had a pudgy, unattractive cow follow him around at a party, literally begging him for sex. Eventually he had too much to drink and succumbed to her advances. After the episode she was upset about what she had done, and called him, threatening to end his career because he never called her after the encounter.

Being the Marine that he was, he told her to go to hell.

Six months passed. Then the Tailhook sexual harassment scandal broke, the Secretary of the Navy resigned, and she saw her chance. She walked into the ROTC office on campus and said, "I want to report a rape."

When the local police department went out to interview her on the incident, she told them that she didn't want to talk to them, she wanted to talk to NIS. She had done her research well.  She knew if she talked to the local police, they would find out this was trumped up shit.If she talked to NIS, well, he would be guilty until proven innocent. That's how they rolled.

The local police department did an investigation, and she did admit that she made the whole thing up. Even after that NIS came in and made the Marine's life hell to 'clear his name.' 

After all that, what happened to the lying cow? Nothing. Not a damn thing.

So was she privileged? I would say so. This was the only rape case I know about in college, so false rape allegations are running about 100% in college by my survey sample. Something needs to be done. These women that make this shit up to cause pain to someone, here and in family court need to be punished for their own shitty behavior. Just like anybody else.
