If you falsely accuse someone of rape, you deserve to be burned at the stake, just like an actual rapist.
@EatMyAss, my friend just got kicked out of school because two women falsely accused him of sexual assault, it's a disgusting thing and anyone who does it deserves a right hand seat in hell
@The Gay Gatsby, and what's worse, is when they find your friend innocent, the college probably won't let him back in
@EatMyAss, guess "innocent until proven guilty" doesn't apply when women accuse men of rape
@EatMyAss, Im pretty liberal but I once got down voted on a reddit women's sub for saying false rape accusations should be criminally pursued. They argued that might deter real rape victims from coming forward and therefore shouldn't be done. They also argued false allegation don't negatively affect men. Well, aren't these men also victims? Yes, they are. And I know for a fact it can ruin lives. I just shook my head.
There are some strong arguments out there that claim that the long-term effects of being accused of rape are much more severe than those of being raped. Don't believe me? Count the opposition outside of a support group of rape survivors, then count the number of people protesting a support group for those accused of rape.
@Hotchkiz, what? So you'd rather be raped than accused of rape? You say there's strong arguments... so what would those even be? Because protests of support groups isn't exactly scientific data
@BennMann, I'm not trying to say you're totally wrong but it seems like a stretch to say you're better off being brutalized sexually than having someone accuse you of a crime.
@BennMann, I think they are equally as terrible but one is longer lasting, as a woman rape is one of my biggest fears, but if you're accused falsely of raping someone you're going to prison for something you didn't do and you're permanently labeled as a sex offender which noone wants anything to do with, including schools and jobs.
@BennMann, thats not what he said at all, if youre gonna get triggered at least get triggered for the right reason.
@BennMann, but i mean when you consider that once accused of rape you are guilty in the eyes of the majority regardless of proof and will likely go to jail and become raped yourself. Now youve been raped, have a record, and everyone will know all your life.
So what im saying is if you falsely accuse someone of rape falsely, you are a criminal.
@Hotchkiz, I just saw a story about how this teacher's life was ruined because a girl accused him of rape "as a joke". Literally for no other reason than the fück of it. Even though he didn't go to jail, he was fired and will have a hell of a time finding a new job
@Thinlizzy, I have a good friend that this happened to a few years ago. He was proven innocent, but the damage was already done. He had to get a crappy graveyard job and can't use the degree he got in teaching to pay off his student loans.
@Hotchkiz, can we all just agree that some humans (rapists and women who falsely accuse others of rape) are terrible human beings that should face the wrath of several hells (I don't even believe in hell, but would for this purpose)?
@Hotchkiz, I would hope that someone fired due to a false rape accusation could sue for wrongful termination. Doesn't mean they will get their job back. And they'll still have a tough time for pretty much the rest of their life.
@BennMann, Actually, I do think I'd rather be raped than accused of rape.
Not that my perception validates the previous claim...
Even with a rape kit containing physical evidence my rapist walked free. Through the entire ordeal i was urged by not only my friends but my family to drop the charge because "it would ruin his life". To me this isnt funny because its a serious problem that DOES exist.
@xbumblex, Damn... I'm sorry. I wouldn't want to be on either end of this tbh
@xbumblex, You're right. Rape is a serious problem. And it's not funny. But claiming it's not as serious as being falsely accused when the damages it does to innocent people are just severe as actually being proven guilty. Is also a serious problem. And to claim it's not a problem is to be blind of just how damning being accused of rape is. It happens more than people realize.
However the reason people find stuff like this meme funny, is because if the hypocrisy of people who are out of touch when they say things like in this meme. It's not a laugh out loud kind of funny. It's a chuckle at the stupid people kind of funny.
@Seohn, but this picture doesn't say they're being falsely accused. It's talking about exactly what xbumblex says happened to them.
@xbumblex, I was about to say most rapists walk free. We need to change our legal system. I'm sorry for what happened, though. You are much braver than I would be.
I knew of a guy who was falsely accused of raping and impregnating a woman. He was in jail for days, lost his job, his family disowned him, his friends isolated him, and his social media was a magnet for abuse. Even after he was proven to have consensual sex and she wasn't really pregnant, his life was still ruined because some bish decided it would be fun to get back the guy. Two little lies ruined his life potentially forever.
Growing up I didnt understand the meaning of rape. Went to a friends house and got molested by her uncle. Went home and told my dad I was raped because I thought it was the same thing. State troopers were called. I told them what happened they said it wasnt rape and left it at that. Because i stated he raped me he didnt get in trouble for touching me. And to make matters worse... that same month he was accepted for a janitorial job at my school. I grew up in a population of 650 people... the way they cover the rape and molestation in rural villages is fvcked up. Theyd rather not slander the family name.
If someone says something this stupid, please don't black out their name 😂
I feel like two rules will satisfy both parties don't rape people and don't lie about being raped
Innocent until proven guilty that's how it works
@eleven, hahaha. Although it's suppose to be like that, reality isn't so nice.
@eleven, too bad it doesn't actually work out that way
@wulfzen, truly unfortunate
Oh no, its retarded
Bítch needs a slap
This picture doesn't say anything about falsely accusing people of rape, just accusing them. Obviously it's awful to wrongly accuse someone of something so serious but if someone actually did that we should make sure people feel safe reporting it rather than taking sympathy on the rapist
"I'm gonna tell her."
"Don't you dare!"
