    To just take someones word without any concrete proof is pretty insane. While rape does indeed ruin lives, false, untrue accusations of rape ruins lives as well.

    Just who do you think the accused sexual predator is in this case? Do you even know the facts of this, or are you just spit-balling?

    That’s the intent.

    Bill Cosby, because he spoke about the need for black families to stay together, was charged with drugging and raping a woman even though that woman voluntarily consumed the pills Cosby offered to her.

    No one ever seems to be able to answer me as to why one would make false claims. "For attention" is the most common reply I hear. That makes no sense. Think of any person accused of sexual abuse or harassment. You can name those. Can you name any of their accusers though? Especially if they weren't already famous people beforehand?

    DLLS mentioned Bill Cosby, for instance. We all know who Bill Cosby is. But how many of his accusers can you name?

    That has been answered a number of times. People lie for all sorts of reasons. Revenge and money being two that come to mind immediately. Considering the mental and emotional state of some of the women one meets attention would be one too.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Polly, I have defended cases (civil) that were 100% false. So, add financial gain to the list.

    You can't think of any reasons? I can. Revenge is one. Financial reasons is another. Regret over sleeping consensually with someone is yet another.

    You talk about how tough women have it, but what rights are we as men entitled to? In your world a mere accusation is proof of guilt. Is that not more harsh and ridiculous than anything you claim women go through? That's not even getting into how men get killed in divorces, how they have no say in a child being born, yet need to pay child support, etc. Women are also given much more favorable sentences in court, especially when it comes to sexual crimes like sleeping with minors. Women are also the biggest beneficiaries of affirmative action, and the list goes on.

    Frankly, objectively looking at the facts, the courts, the state, and western society generally favor women disproportionately, sometimes even at the expense of men.

    And do you walk it back when you're wrong? Fricking NEVER..............because men have a penis, they are all automatically guilty.
    How about those female teachers knocking off a bit of penis with their students? Justified, if I understand you...."The young boy was armed with a penis, so I used it against him..."
