Man arrested over false sexual assault claim

Isn't this an interesting occurrence? A man has been arrested for filing a false sexual assault claim, but he isn't named.

The accusation was that Louis Walsh, a music industry manager and judge on the show X-factor, groped a man in the restroom at a club during an appearance of a band Walsh manages.

The part that I am happy to see is that Mr. Walsh is planning to pursue a libel action against the accuser. Mr. Walsh's statement says it all:

"...While I obviously welcome today's confirmation from the Garda that the matter has been dropped I remain outraged that this story ran in the first place in the Sun and I have instructed my libel lawyer to vigorously pursue legal action against the paper and they will also be taking action in relation to a number of other equally serious related matters.

"I have no intention of letting this matter rest until I have received total and absolute vindication. This has been a hugely distressing time for me but I would like to thank all my friends and colleagues for their support and I am now just looking forward to getting back to work."

Atrocity: Man tried for 'rapes' allegedly committed 37 years ago

A man is on trial, accused of raping two sisters when he babysat them.

The alleged rapes occurred -- brace yourself -- between February 1974 and February 1975.  The man, now 51, was 14 years old at the time.  He denies that he did it, but still he is on trial.  Story: see here.

New Site up for Female Offenders

For those who don't visit A Voice for Men on a regular basis, there is a new site up, that several people have collaborated to get up.

It is called Register-her.com, and lists voilent offenders, false accusers, killers, etc. who all should be serving lengthy sentences, but suprise, are not.

Please feel free to stop by.

Janelle Martinez gets a 5 year sentence for false sexual assault claim

A five year sentence. Please take a moment for that to sink in. Five years. To this point, that is the largest sentence I have heard of being handed down for a false claim of sexual assault.

Sexual Grievance Industry Complains that Rape News Reports Fails to Sufficiently Pin Blame on the Male Accused of Rape

Among the innumerable canards posited by the sexual grievance industry is that the news media contributes to "victim blaming," thus discouraging female rape victims from "coming forward," by failing to place the blame squarely on the male rapist in news accounts of alleged rapes.  The theory is that the crime of rape is reported as something that happens to women as opposed to something that men do.

Gender 101: Feminism on Facebook

by Connie Chastain*

I've been a member of a couple of anti-feminist groups on Facebook almost since I created a Facebook account back in 2009. I haven't found much there that spins my wheels. But Facebook being what it is, if those groups don't do it for me, there are lots of others I can join.

Judge Tells Ex-Boyfriend to Remove Abortion Billboard

The news story is here: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/06/23/judge-tells-boyfriend-to-remove-abortion-billboard/

Men are denied any legal say in the decision to abort their offspring. Now they are being denied any legal say about whether they are happy about that.

Let us be clear: if the woman did not have an abortion, the sign itself is a heinous affront to her rights.

But if she did have an abortion, forcing him to take down the sign contorts the First Amendement beyond all recognition.

I am beginning to feel that I no longer recognize this country we live in.

Now, men are accused of rape in tell-all memoirs

US Weekly published blips from Bristol Palin's new biography: "The 20-year-old single mom reveals that, while drunk for the very first time, she lost her virginity to Levi Johnston during a camping trip. Palin says she woke up alone in her tent, with no recollection as to what happened. Johnston, meanwhile, 'talked with his friends on the other side of the canvas.'"

So, of course, some people assume that means Bristol Palin was raped. "[W]hen you claim someone had sex with you without your knowledge while you’re passed out drunk, that’s called rape."

19 Years Ago Today: An Act of Penile Mutilation Turns A Woman Into a National Heroine

Mainstream Feminism's Tacit Approval of False Rape Claims

In a recent post, we wrote: "Women are pressured by feminist-inspired norms to make themselves more available to men than ever, but they have also learned that crying rape after-the-fact is a culturally accepted, indeed feminist approved, antidote to sex they feel was too cheaply obtained."

On a Reddit MensRights thread, a feminist took exception: "I find the implication that feminists in general approve of false rape claims offensive. Yeah, there may be some feminists who are that sick, but those are fucked-up individuals who don't speak for the movement anymore than rape apologists speak for the Men's Rights movement."

Anthony Weiner: Another sacrifice to the goddesses who control male sexuality

I intensely dislike Anthony Weier, for reasons previously made public.  See here.  Beyond that, Weier's tweeting sexually suggestive and sexually explicit photographs, and then lying about it, suggests a dishonesty and an immaturity that is troubling.

Rape Charges Dropped Against Garrett Wittels

We've been following the rape charges against college superstar baseball player Garrett Wittels since January. He and two buddies were on vacation at the Atlantis in the Bahamas last December when they hooked up with two young women and had sex. The young women later accused the three young men of rape. It had all the markings of a false rape claim from the outset. As time went on, more revelations cast even more doubt on the veracity of the claims.

Among other things, security camera footage appeared to contradict what the women told Bahamian authorities. In addition, the father of one of the accusers -- who chaperoned the girls on their visit to the Atlantis -- once was accused of planning to hire a woman to falsely claim she was raped at a professional sporting event.

Justices Unanimously Side with Wal-Mart

Of course, Wal-Mart must hate women. After all, Wal-Mart is a big, powerful corporation run by white men.

Of course, the Duke lacrosse players randomly picked out of a photo line-up by a loon must hate black women enough to rape one of them. After all, they were well-to-do, young, white males. Just ask Amanda Marcotte, she'll tell you.

Of course, the innocent priest who died a broken man in New York last week must have molested a boy 40 years ago. He had previously been accused of raping a girl 25 years ago. After all, he was a priest.

Are you as sick to death as I am of the knee-jerk, visceral stereotyping of men?

"Rape Culture" - What exactly are we teaching our kids?

Eleven-years-old, and she's making a false allegation of rape. While there is no mention of why she made the allegation, it seems obvious that she knew the kind of response she would get.

Gender 101: The Third Sunday of June

Note from Pierce Harlan: I've never interrupted Connie's essays, but am compelled to do so today to urge our readers to be certain to savor this one. It's a love letter not only to Connie's father but to all fathers, and there isn't a false note in it. Thank you, Connie.

by Connie Chastain*

There are any number of websites that will tell you the origins and significance of Father's Day. One of them, titled "Father's Day In the United States," says the holiday "...celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children."

Father's Day is celebrated across the globe and dates back to ancient Babylon, according to "Father's Day Celebrations Around the World," which gives visitors a glimpse into the many ways different cultures honor fathers on their special day.

Of course, the websites I visited do not mention what the era of modern feminism has done to fathers--minimizing their involvement in and influence on the lives of their children and society as a whole. From my observations, it appears that the men's rights movement began as a father's rights movement, a creation of fathers who were cut out of their children's lives by ex-wives and the courts after divorce. But fatherlessness has also resulted from legislation that encourages and finances single motherhood. This, despite statistics that fatherlessness results in some of the most damaging social pathologies plaguing our culture.

Strathpeffer woman, Emily MacNicol, fined for false rape claim

So she was a student at Strathclyde University, studying bio-chemical science. She is obviously a very intelligent person.

The thing that stands out to me, is why the judge in this case didn't do the following:

1. It appears she has already been in treatment for some issues. If there are that many, and they are that serious, why is she not in a facility?

2. Why didn't the judge have her committed to a facility for further treatment?

Instead she gets a £300 fine and she is living at home with her parents. Was any thought given, that the next time she claims rape, she may point the finger at an innocent man, and his life could be severely damaged due to the claim?

I guess not.

Man accused of falsely reporting sexual abuse

A Fort Edward man was arrested after being accused of making a false sexual assault report. That's according to the New York State Police in Greenwich.

A tale of two airline incidents: (1) women who show too much breast vs. (2) young man who shows boxer shorts. Can you guess which one gets an apology, and which one gets arrested?


INCIDENT NUMBER ONE: In 2007, Southwest Airlines found itself in the center of a feminist brouhaha when it told two women passengers that their outfits were inappropriate to fly. One of the woman at the eye of the storm, Kyla Ebbert, "offered to pull the top of her sweater over her breasts and pull her skirt down as far as possible. A compromise that was finally agreed upon." But the issue wouldn't go away and the Sisterhood took up her cause.

Rape witch hunt causes innocent priest to die a broken man

In 2006, lawyer Mitchell Garabedian lodged a claim against the Rev. Charles Murphy that he improperly touched a female minor 25 years earlier.  Father Murphy swore his innocence, the archdiocese ruled the allegations lacked substance, and the woman dropped her suit on the eve of trial.

False rape claims: increasingly a tool to skew the current economies of sex, where sex is cheaper than most women prefer

The cultural tenets governing sexual encounters have witnessed a sea change in recent years because of the loosening of sexual mores, the feminist-inspired norms that pressure young women to "party like the guys," and the explosion of birth control.

The experts tell us that men have a much easier time obtaining sex than they did in days long gone. "College campuses and urban areas are often dominated by women, which means that men can and will decide how much — or how little — they will exchange for sex."  Women who'd prefer to put a higher price tag on their sexuality are finding themselves locked out of the market. See here.

The results are all too predictable.  Women are having sex more often when they secretly are conflicted about it. We've frequently reported here about the proven gender "regret asymmetry" where young women have much higher levels of after-the-fact regret than men following sexual hook-ups.  Regret too often is transmogrified into feelings of being used, and feeling used too often metamorphoses into false rape claims.

Having studied the false rape phenomenon closely for a number of years, it is my conclusion that young women are increasingly resorting to false rape claims as an inappropriate method of skewing the current economies of sex, which favor men and which make sex cheaper than most women consciously or subconsciously prefer. Women are pressured by feminist-inspired norms to make themselves more available to men than ever, but they have also learned that crying rape after-the-fact is a culturally accepted, indeed feminist approved, antidote to sex they feel was too cheaply obtained.  Instead of saying "no" up front, women are retroactively saying "no" -- with false rape claims -- after-the-fact. The feminists who dominate the public discourse on rape because of their roles in what can aptly be called the sexual grievance industry tacitly, and sometimes overtly, approve of this antidote by their open tolerance of false rape claims. 

Where does this leave men, who have every legitimate right to depend on the woman's up-front assent?  We see where that leaves men every single day on this blog.

One cure is to enhance the value of female sexuality by decreasing the supply and thereby reduce both regret and false rape claims. That, of course, can never happen in a society where "slut walks" are celebrated as liberating events, where colleges excuse women from underage drinking charges so long as they report they were raped, and where false rape claims are routinely excused and implicitly encouraged. In short, it can never happen in a society that encourages young women to be promiscuous and to then tell rape lies when that promiscuity results in an unfavorable sexual experience.

The other cure is the one that every fair-minded person should endorse: charging every false rape claim, and enhancing the sentences for false rape claims so that women know if they tell a rape lie, they risk serious punishment.

A congressman's tragedy is a "victory" for women? Really?

ABC News' Web site has a repulsive headline: "Weiner Scandal: A Victory for Women Leaders?" See here.

As if the Greek tragedy of Anthony Weiner's downfall could appropriately be considered a "victory" for anyone. But the purveyors of gender divisiveness who write features articles never miss a chance to drive a wedge between men and women in order to get people to read their dreck.

Compare the way Amanda Marcotte pre-judged the Anthony Weiner and Duke Lacrosse accusations


It is a chilling barometer of our times that a puerile, chronically fuming, radical feminist fanatic like Amanda Marcotte is cited as someone with an opinion worth listening to by seemingly mainstream publications like The Nation, The Seattle Post Intelligencer, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  Her work is the literary equivalent of a profane hissy fit, written by a smug fifteen-year-old-girl who knows everything.

Gender 101: Out of a Child's Mouth


By Connie Chastsain*

I was a young adult when second-wave feminism swept across the land. It wasn't called that, though. It was called "women's lib." I didn't like it even before I knew much about it.

Back then, one of the shocks of my life came during a sermon by my late father, a very culturally, politically and religiously conservative preacher, when he said, "We see more opportunities for women these days, and that's good."

What? I couldn't believe my ears. Women's lib is good?

Germaine Greer sees evil when little girls kiss their fathers goodnight


She's at it again.

Feminist dragon Germaine Greer said that daughters learn to flirt by kissing their fathers goodnight. 

She also suspects British troops rape women when sent into foreign countries.

This is the same feminist who once did a broadcast on a British show called The South Bank Show in which she discussed the theme of her book, The Boy, about how women should be encouraged to look to young male flesh for pleasure. On the show, an 18-year-old male model posed completely in the nude while Greer waxed poetic about young male sperm: "There are many ways in which a boy is an ideal fantasy partner for a woman. Any woman of taste would have a boy for a lover rather than a man. He's easier to manage. His sperm flows like tap water, which happens to be a biological fact. And quicker recovery time and all that kind of thing. More rewarding in all sorts of ways. Conversation might be a bit lacking, but then, who does it for conversation?" 

I don't know what scares you, but that's creepy as hell to me.

Andrea Chance on trial over false claims she was attacked by strangers in Devon

Now this one seems to be a case of someone who craves more attention than she feels she's been getting.

Thank you, Mr. Price

Read the great W.F. Price's piece at The Spearhead on the Weiner/Civic Virtue controversy.

The original piece we wrote about "Civic Virtue" at The Spearhead obviously got under the skin of some important feminists, to the point that they got their pit bull interested in the story.  But, alas, whiner Weiner's weiner got caught in the soup, and now, he's all but finished. 

Whatever it takes.

Police say no evidence to support alleged rape

The following article doesn't support an actual false claim, but it doesn't support an actual rape, either. And yet, the first comment left under the story automatically, with knee-jerk predictability, calls the claimant a "victim," thus assuming that a crime has been committed, and that the accused was guilty.

The Education Dept. doesn't want your son cross-examining his accuser, and why that's unfair

Former Education Department attorney Hans Bader is the most cogent voice for the presumptively innocent accused of sexual harassment on campus in the wake of the Education Department's April 4 directive. His latest piece explains, with irrefutable logic, why the April 4 directive's strong discouragement of cross-examination severely curtails the accused's right to a fair hearing:

Why Cross-Examination Rights Matter in Campus Sexual Harassment Cases under Title IX

As part of its broader attack on safeguards against false accusations, the federal Education Department is urging colleges to strip students and faculty of the right to cross-examine their accusers in disciplinary proceedings over alleged sexual harassment. In an April 4 letter from Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Russlynn Ali, the Education Department said that it “strongly discourages schools from allowing the parties personally to question or cross-examine each other during the hearing.”

Trial date set for woman accused in adoption scams

Tracy Bess, the woman named in a series of adoption scams, was in Polk County Jail Court on Monday for a hearing on another matter: That she allegedly filed a false report of a sexual assault.

Bess, 25, will appear for a pretrial hearing on July 7. A trail date was set for August 1.

Ankeny police arrested Bess on May 11 on felony charges of suborning perjury and filing a false indictable crime to law enforcement authorities. The charges stem from an allegedly fake sexual assault report Bess made in late April under the name of Tara Snyder.

Officers seized two computers and other items believed to have been used by Bess. According to court documents police talked to several individuals or families regarding adoption scams. They spent money on travel and food and other items, hoping to adopt Bess’ baby. It turned out, police said, she was not pregnant.

No charges have been filed against Bess for her association with those trying to adopt children.

Des Moines police said earlier that charges were not likely in an adoption scam reported to them this year by a woman from Wisconsin as Bess had not asked for money.

She has been in jail since May 11. Her bond is $10,000.

Tracy Bess, who appears to be an adoption scam artist, was in court over a completely unrelated charge on Monday. For suborning perjury and filing a false indictable crime. Those are certainly differently named for the usual "filing a false report".

A Voice for Men Radio Show

Forgot to mention, that I will be on A Voice For Men Radio tonight. I will be discussing my attendance of the Chicago Slutwalk this past saturday (I was an observer, not a participant). We will also touch on the fact that this is False Allegation Awareness month. Hope you can listen. It airs at 8 p.m. Central time.

Girl is allowed to humiliate her ex-boyfriend all over the net; man isn't allowed to put up a billboard announcing his ex had an abortion against his wishes

Earlier this year, a minor teen male was "stressed out and embarrassed" because his former girlfriend pasted his image all over Google, under such unloving messages such as "I can't read"; that rocker Kenny Loggins "is my saviour"; that he's working in the gym "on my two pack"; that he's "every man's prison dream"; that he's gay. Another talks about his "dick" and another about cybersex. He comes in for further ridicule with an assessment of his fashion sense: "V-necks. Mom jeans."

The newspapers printed his name, his picture, and some of the cruel slogans (some couldn't be printed in a family newspaper).  It was all over the web, and it was generally given the lighthearted treatment about "a woman scorned" and about how he shouldn't have messed with a woman who has internet capabilities.  See, e.g., http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1354432/Hell-hath-fury-Girl-gets-revenge-ex-boyfriend-spamming-Google-image.html

Another 'Woe Is Me, I'm a Woman, and Men Run the World' Commencement Speech

Here are excerpts from Facebook COO Sheryl Sandburg's commencement speech at Barnard College. The thrust of it is her bellyaching over the fact that there is no gender equality in top corporate jobs. She takes some cheap jabs at men along the way.

Whoever reprinted the speech must have left out the part where she called for gender equality in jobs where people are killed and injured (93 percent of work fatalities are male), and where she called for equality among people living on the streets (a group that far outnumbers corporate CEOs and that is overwhelmingly male). Nor does she mention that men are routinely denied anything approaching equality in custody rulings. And we won't mention military fatalities, or the gender gap in sentencing for precisely the same crime, the life expectancy gap, or the fact that young women in urban areas now earn more than their male counterparts. Somehow, the crowd that insists there is no gender equality doesn't see any that.

Christina Hoff Sommers Exposes the War Against Our Sons on Campus

"The new regulations should be seen for what they really are. They are not enlightened new procedures for protecting students from crime. They are a declaration of martial law against men, justified by an imaginary emergency, and a betrayal of the Title IX equity law."

Even the impulse to look is unfair to females

I don't know about you, but I've had disadvantages from birth that I've had to overcome -- things I don't and won't discuss because I refuse to have anyone feel sorry for me or to view me as a victim.  I do not feel "guilty" for being a white male, and do not feel blessed, either.

When I read comments like the following, on a Jessica Valenti Live Q&A, it almost sickens me (the emphasis is mine):

Q. As the father of daughters, I strongly condemn the double standard regarding sexuality and the genders. Or more specifically, how societies have historically treated female sexuality as shameful. Often the stated rationale for restricting how females dress is the false claim that this is necessarily for male self-control. My reaction to that is, "Oh, please" - do you share that reaction? At the same time, I cannot deny that I find the sight of female flesh alluring. While I avoid staring, I find that even if I'm not looking I'm still looking, if that makes sense. A bit like not thinking of a pink elephant. I feel like even having the impulse to look is unfair to females. I've told other men that it's wrong for, say, serial adulterers to blame their behavior on either their impulses or on the women. Does that make me a hypocrite if I have the impulse to look?


A.Jessica Valenti : Yes, I agree that it's silly to argue that men somehow can't control themselves around women who dress a certain way - it's an argument that's insulting to men. As far as you looking at women - I don't know, we all look at each other a bit, don't we?! I think so long as you don't stare in a way that makes a woman clearly uncomfortable, it's pretty understandable.

http://live.washingtonpost.com/outlook-the-new-form-of-feminisim.html

The rest of it is the usual straw man inanity that pretends women are raped because society excuses males and blames females. And because of "rape culture," which links rape with Playboy Magazine and with male batterers and with prostitution and with male domination and and with patriarchy. And probably with ham sandwiches, too.  You know, the usual nonsense for which there is precisely zero evidence.

Witch Doctor Decides Whether Men Stay in Jail or Are Freed Based on Junk Science Polygraphs of Their Penises

There's a disturbing piece out of South Carboline today about a physician named William Burke who works with men both convicted and accused of sex offenses: http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2011/jun/06/molesters-versus-sex-lab-controversial-testing-tec/. Do not read it on an empty stomach.

Shackled and handcuffed, the males are forced to sit for hours in a small room with a state-of-the-art plethysmograph firmly attached aroung their penises while they are subjected to pornographic visual and audio stimulation to test whether they have deviant responses.  An armed guard hovers over them during the humiliation. It's called penile plethysmograph testing, clinically called "PPG" testing and non-clinically called "Peter Meter" testing. In PPG testing, men and boys are subjected to a sort a junk science polygraph of their penises.

Innocent man is jailed solely because his wife claimed he raped her

Do most men understand that the only thing standing between them and a cold, smelly, inhumane jail cell is the good will of their wives or girlfriends?  And trust me, that's not hyperbole.

Jessica Perry, 28, called the police and reported her husband, Anthony Perry, had forcibly raped her.  Police acted quickly and arrested Mr. Perry based on his wife's word, and booked him into county jail.

Gender 101: Truth Is Uglier Than Fiction

Masculist Man's response to my last essay, with a link to feminist quotes on the Men's Rights Blog (http://mensrightsboard.blogspot.com/2010/02/feminist-quotes.html) has come to mind several times this week and put to rest something that has been mildly troubling for me, as a writer.

Woman makes inexplicable false rape claim against man she'd just met

No man is safe from an inexplicable false rape claim.

When police wrongly charge a rape victim with filing a false report, it's a national outrage

Police very, very rarely wrongly charge a rape complainant with filing a false report. It is an extremely uncommon and isolated event. It happened in Lynnwood, Washington, when a young woman's story kept changing and even people who knew her expressed doubts about her story. She was charged with, and pled guilty to, filing a false report. She received a deferred sentence and was ordered to undergo mental health counseling and pay a $500 fine.
