By the balls: That's where your son's college has him if he's accused of sexual assault

This blog has written extensively about the Obama administration's April 4 directive to colleges that, to be compliant with Title IX, they must apply the lowest standard of proof for all college disciplinary proceedings involving sexual harassment (which includes sexual assault): a "preponderance of the evidence standard," which means that there need only be a slight probability that the offense occurred in order to hold the accused (almost always a male for sex offenses) responsible. Until the directive, the vast majority of institutions applied the "clear and convincing" evidence standard, which means that to find an accused responsible for sexual assault, the school must produce evidence that unequivocally establishes a very high probability that the alleged assault occurred.

NYPD: Sex crime 'victims' often tell only part of story or 'make it up altogether'

Newsweek shines a light on how the cops in NYPD's Special Victims Division decide whether a rape claim is true or false.  The story centers on the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case (the cops think he's guilty), but the more interesting comments concern rape and false rape claims in general. Please bear in mind that too many false rape reports that we chronicle here, in this blog, involve cops who initially thought a woman was telling the truth, only to find out she lied.

Most important part of the Vladek Filler case: the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine's ruling last year when it granted Filler a new trial

Vladek Filler was found not guilty on the charge of raping his wife, as we predicted.  As important as this was for Mr. Filler, the more important part was the appellate court's ruling last year that gave Mr. Filler a new trial.

As Robert Franklin explained explained at the time: "[T]he appellate court agreed with Filler and the trial court that he should get another chance to prove his innocence. But it went further than the trial court saying that, in the new trial, Filler can bring in all of the evidence about the custody matter and the fact that none of the allegations had been made until custody became an issue.  That’s obviously important to Vladek Filler, but, since it’s a ruling by the Supreme Judicial Court, it’s also important to countless other men in Maine. No more will their criminal trials on allegations of domestic abuse be marred by their inability to adduce evidence that the charges arose in the course of child custody cases."  See here: http://www.fathersandfamilies.org/?p=9950

We examined that appellate decision in detail here: http://falserapesociety.blogspot.com/2011/03/prosecutors-conduct-in-vladek-filler.html

Gender 101: Our Children's Future

by Connie Chastain*

Recently on Facebook, quite a few of my friends (some of whom I've never met in my life) have featured photos of adorable new additions to their families. Sometimes they're a son or daughter, sometimes a grand, or a niece or nephew.

The ones posting the photos are uniformly delighted with the little bundle of joy that God has graced their family with. Judging by their comments, friends are also delighted to offer their congrats and observations about the precious little one.

Girl Has Five Men Arrested on False Rape Claim, Judge Criticizes the Men

Hannah Patenall was spared jail after she had five young men arrested on a false rape claim. 

Patenall, then 17, had sex with three men, then called police and, using a fake name, claimed she had been forcibly raped. As a result, five men, ages 18 to 21, were arrested.

The police accepted Patenall's word over that of the five young men. They told detectives that Patenall had approached them in the street and offered them sex.

Two of the men spent 24 hours in police custody; three spent 13 hours, and all were asked to provide body fluid samples. They were released and on bail for five weeks.

Study: Underage teen boys more likely than girls to be prosecuted for having consensual sex with underage partners


The Crime Victims' Institute at Sam Houston State University has completed a study called "Adolescent Sexual Behavior and the Law" after examining various state laws that have been adopted to protect minors from sexual abuse by adults or peers.  The study found that underage teens having consensual, close-in-age relationships are being processed through the courts and as a result often are labeled as sex offenders.  Many states have so-called "Romeo and Juliet" laws that decriminalize close-in-age adolescent sexual behavior, but many states do not. 

The study also found a disturbing gender bias when teens having sex are legally both the victim and both the offender: "In some states a gender bias in prosecuting offenders is especially prominent when both partners of a sex act are under the age of consent. . . . . it is more common to see the prosecution of only the male." (Adolescent Sexual Behavior and the Law at page 13.)

For example, the study cites an Arizona case where a 13 year old boy was convicted of having consensual sex with his older, 15 year old girlfriend.

Hero's Twelve Year Quest to Make False Reporting a Felony Offense Moves Closer to Reality

Imagine having the police pay you a visit one day. You have no idea why. They tell you that you are under arrest for allegedly raping a girl.  They handcuff you, and take you to the police station. Television cameras are conveniently present to capture the moment so that the entire community can titillate to your humiliation.  The alleged rape, you learn, didn't happen last week. Nor last month. Nor last year.  Nope. How about twelve years ago?  You can't remember much about what you did twelve years ago, but you know you didn't do that, and you deny it. But they arrest you just the same, and they charge you with rape. And then they schedule a trial where, if you are convicted, you likely will spend the rest of your life behind bars.

'Slut Walk' Straw Men

We've avoided discussion of the worldwide "Slut Walks" because they are meaningless exercises in straw men-ery intended to justify the existence of the sexual grievance industry so that it gets more funding, and to transmogrify the real reasons women aren't believed when they cry rape.

Amanda Moyes gets 1 year in jail

As we've often discussed on this blog, there should be varying punishments for a false allegation of rape or sexual assault, depending on how far the case/investigation goes, whether someone is arrested or not, along with several other factors.

Look who agrees that the treatment of Dominique Strauss-Kahn was unfair

When this blog complained last week about the treatment that presumptively innocent ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn received after being accused of rape by a member of a New York hotel's housekeeping staff, I could almost hear the eyes rolling by the usual crowd that thinks we MUST be rape apologizing misogynists because we have the audacity to say the presumptively innocent shouldn't be treated as if they are vile rapists.

The Myth of Moral Equivalence Between Jailing Innocent Men for Rapes They Didn't Commit and Allowing Rapists to Go Free

I came across an old Ann Landers column that brilliantly illustrates perhaps the single greatest stumbling block to raising awareness about the gravity of the false rape problem. A reader of Ann Landers succinctly summed up the fundamental injustice faced by the falsely accused, an injustice as true now as it was then. But it is Ms. Lander's response to the letter that is problematic:

Boston Globe Writer: It's Fair Game to Humiliate Men Accused, But Not Convicted, of Rape 'Given the Imbalance in the Legal System, As Far As Rape Prosecutions Go'


Boston Globe columnist Joanna Weiss, whose feminist sensibilities are clear, candidly says what many have long suspected about the feminists who dominate the public discourse on rape: Weiss thinks it's fair game to shame and humiliate presumptively innocent men who are merely accused, and not convicted, of rape, even though she also candidly admits that men are falsely accused of rape.

Gender 101: Discussion Group Obstinance

by Connie Chastain*

Not long after I started writing essays for the False Rape Society blog, I was challenged by a discussion group acquaintence. The subject was a rape story making news at the time, and one of the group members coyly asked me, "So, is this an example of your false rape claims?"

Double Standard: Mainstream Media Defends Perp Walk of Accused Rapist By Noting There Should Be No Secrets in Criminal Matters, Yet Continues to Shield Names of Rape Accusers

The Chicago Sun-Times had an editorial yesterday justifying the humiliating "perp walk" of a rumpled and handcuffed Dominique Strauss-Kahn before photographers.  The term "perp-walk" refers to the police practice of intentionally parading an arrested suspect through a public place, like a war trophy of a victorious army in primitive times, so that the media may observe and record the event.  We discussed "perp walks" in this post earlier in the week.

Ad campaign: Innocent men, not innocent women, have duty to stop rape


Here we go again -- a rehash of a story we just ran.  A, um, "provocative" and "new" campaign called "Don't Be That Guy" has been launched by Ottawa agencies working to prevent sexual violence against women. If it looks just like Edmonton's campaign last year of the same name, it's because they are exactly the same.

NOW proves again it has no use for fairness, at least where men are concerned

There are sound reasons why IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn probably had no choice but to resign, given his predicament. Whether that predicament was self-created is something no one, except in all likelihood two people, knows for certain. Many responsible people called on him to resign simply because the IMF needs a chief who is neither behind bars nor distracted by a pending sexual assault trial that could send him to prison for much of the rest of his life.  This is an issue apart from whether he is innocent or guilty of the present charges.

NOW, of course, called on him to resign for different reasons. NOW has prejudged him to be guilty of offenses against women even though he has never been adjudged guilty of any crime, and even before a scrap of evidence has been admitted in a trial on the present charges. That didn't stop NOW's president, Terry O'Neill, from proclaiming: “We’re calling for his resignation based on his pattern and practice of behaviors harming women.” http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2011/05/18/now-calls-for-imfs-strauss-kahn-to-resign/

Male Bashing on Campus for Fun and Profit

The following is an expansion of a post that was lost last week during Blogger's outage. That post was one of the ones not restored by Blogger when the outage ended.

The sexual grievance industry recently dispatched one of its gurus, a specimen that answers to the name of Jackson Katz, to Dartmouth to reduce the typical male student on campus to grotesque caricature, and to declare even the innocents of his gender -- meaning, pretty much every man on campus -- guilty, by reason of penis, of offenses against women. But don't trust me. Read it for yourself here.

Yale Bans Iconic Fraternity for Fratboy Stunt 'Offensive' to Women

Yale College Dean Mary Miller announced that the Delta Kappa Epsilon chapter would be banned from recruiting or undertaking any activities on campus for five years as punishment for frats boys acting like . . . well, frat boys.

DKE was banned because of a pledge ritual that involved what is being described as "pro-rape" chants; actually, the ritual involved shouting, “No means yes, yes means anal," and," “My name is Jack, I’m a necrophiliac, I f--- dead women." Footage of the chants was posted online, sparking outcry beyond the New Haven campus.

Strauss-Kahn predicted he'd be victimized by a false rape claim

In an interview April 28 with the French daily newspaper Liberation, IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn said he could imagine "a woman who would be raped in a parking lot and who would then be promised 500,000 or a million euros to invent such a story."  See http://edition.cnn.com/2011/CRIME/05/18/new.york.imf.head/?hpt=Sbin

Last Saturday, less than three weeks after that interview, a hotel housekeeping employee said that Mr. Strauss-Kahn sexually assaulted her.

Why I am hopeful about the Vladek Filler retrial

I am confident that Mr. Filler will be acquitted.

KC Johnson on The Power of a False Accusation


You want to see what a humble blogger can accomplish? 

On April 11, 2007, the falsely accused Duke lacrosse players, who had just been declared "innocent" by the state's attorney general of vile rape charges, publicly thanked KC Johnson, a humble blogger, for his efforts in unraveling the glaring lack of evidence in the case and Nifong’s prosecutorial blunders.

Have we handed an unnamed maid too much power to destroy a presumptively innocent man? The question scarcely survives its statement

We reported yesterday what the world press is saying about the sexual assault claim against Dominique Strauss-Kahn. About how it could impact not only the IMF he heads, and France where is a presidential hopeful, but the global economy itself.  It is widely believed that Mr. Strauss-Kahn's reputation has been marred beyond repair, regardless of the outcome of this affair.

To say this is morally grotesque does not capture the evil of what is happening to a presumptively innocent man.

So rape claims aren't taken seriously? Reuters says the claim against Strauss-Kahn could impact "the well-being of the global economy"


How often do we hear that rape claims are not taken seriously?

A Reuters headline screamed: "Strauss-Kahn allegations are consequential for the global economy."  The sexual assault accusation against IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the article proclaims, "could also impact the IMF, France, market uncertainty and the well-being of the global economy."

A crime against a woman is a crime against all women; a crime against a man is . . . who cares?

Why has rape assumed a place of supreme importance in our culture while nobody, outside of a few of us, gives a damn about false rape claims?  Because every rape is deemed to be an attack on all women, and every false rape claim is deemed to be just something that happens. Let's illustrate.

The chickens come home to roost: when a feminist's son is falsely accused of rape

The principal contribution feminism has made to the public discourse about rape is to convince people that women don't lie about it.  This mindset has caused the crime to be taken more seriously, but it has also caused an unacceptable number of innocent men and boys to be arrested on the basis of unsubstantiated rape claims that turn out to be lies.

And: "In half the cases there was no clear evidence that it was a false report."

Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights Takes on False Claims Against Priests


Of all the groups who are adjudged "guilty" of sex offenses in the court of last resort -- the court of public opinion -- before a scrap of evidence is admitted at trial, and on the basis nothing more than a mere accusation by a lone accuser, none are as reviled, scorned, and despised as Catholic priests. When it comes to the subject of priests and rape, political correctness jumps into hyperdrive and Catholic bashers, rape feminists, misandrists, and hysterical chivalrous men who "don't want no pervert near my kid" flock to the issue the way Philadelphians make a beeline to the Jersey shore on Saturdays in July.

U.S. Official Makes Reprehensible False Rape Claim

It is widely believed that it was the women in Barack Obama's administration (Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, among others) who pushed for military action in Libya.  Now, in an attempt to persuade nations growing increasingly skeptical about NATO-led attacks on Libya, especially India, Russia and China, there is evidence that US ambassador Susan Rice has made a massive false rape claim.
