There is "no evidence" that women make false rape claims, says sexual assault counselor. Come again?

Despite all of our efforts to spread objectively verifiable truth that significant numbers of men and boys are falsely accused of rape, we still have alleged experts from the sexual assault industry who spread false information.

This is from a news article published today by the Warrington Guardian, UK. The article quotes Julie Evans, manager of the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre (RASASC) in Warrington:

“We support and believe people 100 per cent – statistically there is no evidence that people make false allegations.” See the story here

Ms. Evans, I invite you to spend several hours reading through the true-life news accounts of the men and boys falsely accused of rape at this Web site, not to mention the other articles here that prove significant numbers of men and boys are victimized by false rape claims.

I left a comment at the end of the article, and I hope our readers do, too. Here is what I said:

That is blatantly false. Objectively verifiable data indicates that at least 9 percent and probably closer to half of all rape claims are false. (See, e.g., S. Taylor, K.C. Johnson, "Until Proven Innocent.") Yet the crime of making a false rape report has become so embroiled in the radical feminist sexual assault milieu that it has been improperly removed from the public discourse about rape. Sexual assault counselors often disingenuously refer to the fact of false rape accusations as a "myth." Denigrating the experience of the falsely accused by dismissing their victimization as a myth is not merely dishonest but morally grotesque. My Web site is devoted to giving voice to the falsely accused, and correcting misstatements of fact such as appears here:
