Hang on - these women have deliberately lied and tried to ruin the lives of others and have, quite rightly been prosecuted. A charity which campaigns against rape is complaining that this has happened. Something is very wrong here. We live in a society where rape is taken extremely seriously. As such, falsely accusing another of rape in an attempt to destroy their life should also be taken seriously. If not enough rapes are being followed up, the charity is right to complain about this, but comments like:
“It’s appalling that when over 90% of rapists are getting away with it and two women a week are killed by partners or ex-partners, women who report violence are being imprisoned.
give the impression that the charity in question doesn't care whether the rape took place or not. That probably wasn't their intention, but I think they have been foolish here and not done their cause any good.
WHY ARE MEN TAKING THIS LYING DOWN?
Because most of them don't think they would ever be the victim of a false rape accusation. I am female and I know two men at my local who were falsely accused of rape by women they rejected.
When it is your turn, it will be TOO LATE.
First they came for the men falsely accused of paedophilia, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a man falsely accused of paedophilia.
Then they came for those falsely accused of a historic sexual offence, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a a man falsely accused of a historic sexual offence.
Then they came for those falsely accused of rape, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a not a man falsely accused of rape.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
109 women prosecuted for false rape claims in five years, say campaigners
Charity accuses authorities in the UK of pursuing cases against rape complainants more aggressively than other countries
The Koran punishes those who falsely accuse chaste women of extramarital sex with 80 lashes. That is 80% of what she would have received if the accusation were believed ie 100 lashes.
And those who accuse chaste women and then do not produce four witnesses - lash them with eighty lashes and do not accept from them testimony ever after. And those are the defiantly disobedient, Except for those who repent thereafter and reform, for indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
