A different story, but the same old motive: a girl says she was raped to hide her own misconduct from her parents

As we see from the multitude of false rape stories, the vast majority of lies in this area are told to cover up something from a husband, a parent or a boyfriend. The news story below is no different.

What is most disconcerting is the feminist canard that while females must be believed when they say they were raped, they shouldn't be so readily believed when they recant. Yet story after story presents fact patterns with cookie-cutter redundancy that show rape claims that do not ring true but recantations that do: in most of these stories, a female lies; the police investigate and find the story doesn't hold up; the female recants and reveals the lie was intended to cover up some indiscretion or other. In story after story, there is no corroborating evidence for the initial rape claim, but there is motive-galore for the recantation. Yet some feminists insist that when it comes to rape, women speak incontrovertible truth, except when the truth happens to be a recantation of the rape claim. Is this in any sense plausible to a fair-minded person? The question scarcely survives its statement.

In any event, here is the latest version of this all-too-familiar fact pattern:

Police say rape claim is false
Girl admits story was fabricated, sheriff says

River Parishes bureau

A Luling teen's account about being kidnapped and raped Sunday night appears to be false, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office.

The 14-year-old girl told her parents that she was kidnapped while walking down Davis Drive, driven to another home and sexually assaulted. She said she later escaped from the home.

"As the investigation continued, detectives began to sense that the information the teen was giving to them wasn't adding up. There were just too many inconsistencies," Sheriff Greg Champagne said in a news release Tuesday.

The girl later admitted that she fabricated the story because she feared being caught outside her home after her parents' curfew, Champagne said.

The teen may be booked with falsifying a police report, he said.
