Rolling Stone Issues 'Note to Our Readers' Regarding UVA Rape Allegations :roll2:
The hysteria over fake rape statistics will hopefully be exposed as a result of this article, but advocates are working overtime to make sure that the public doesn't discover the truth. Rolling Stone should have stuck with MISPLACED TRUST. I wonder if that phrase is trending on Twitter.

CactusHugger: The other news story that definitely rings false are the the rape allegations made against Bill Cosby. Seems like a bunch of hysterical old women all out for a little attention by sharing their common fantasy of having been raped by Cosby. Seems like a lot of rape hysteria going around lately. Lots of exaggerated claims and ridiculous assertions.

Great Example of FAKE STATISTICS Used to Convince Public to Support Sexual Grievance Industry :wtf:
This TYT clip is sleazy on a number of levels, but I'll just mention a couple issues. First of all they display the excerpt shown below of an assertion made by Jezebel (probably a magazine). The claim should make your BS detectors go into overdrive. It's so ridiculous that it's amazing that anyone would even make such a claim. TYT then follow up with a less outlandish claim that the number is 60%. By providing the first number (80%) it becomes more likely that the audience will buy the second number (60%). Great technique for sneaking in BS, but a sober and reasonable person should still be highly skeptical. Possibly up to 10% of females are raped during the trip from somewhere down in Mexico to somewhere here in the USA (a trip that could potentially take a month or two), but any claim above that is too unbelievable to take seriously. As for Jezebel's little trick of sneaking in the U.S. Border Patrol on this list of rapists, that's just plain deceptive. Although I'm sure there have been a few agents who have taken indecent liberties with migrants, the number of such agents would be so minuscule that including them on the list is just plain cheap and dishonest.

pcslim: There's no way that sixty percent of women sneaking into this country get raped. Maybe one out of five women are even attractive enough to consider having sex with under favorable circumstances and even if half of those were raped that would only account for ten percent of the total number of women sneaking across the border. Even ten percent is a pretty high estimate. Anyone who believes that sixty or eighty percent are raped is incredibly stupid!

FAKE STATISTICS: The fact is that sexual assaults are at an all-time low at this time. That's even after the definition of rape has been stretched to include things that just plain aren't rape. Organizations that are dedicated to fighting against sexual assault are fearful of becoming irrelevant and so they keep bombarding the media with FAKE STATISTICS in order to create the perception that they are still needed. That way they'll still get donations and funding from the government. It's all a big scam, but if you've dedicated your life to an organization and the only thing that gives you a sense of purpose is being part of that organization, then you might spread FAKE STATISTICS to keep the organization alive. It's almost like a religion for some people.

Here's why Rolling Stone's UVA rape story went viral
This video could have been posted under the MORAL PANICS thread, but it fits here quite well as a response in support of claims made by ShadyLady. Not only is the one in five statistic completely wrong, but it shows how leaders in Washington D.C. believed the stat despite the ease with which they could have looked up the actual statistics!

The Truth About Rape Culture
This is like a college level seminar on the facts about rape. This guy covers all aspects of rape. Of particular interest to this thread are some insights gained regarding false accusation rates:
Over the course of nine years, researchers found that in 41% of rape cases, the complainant admitted that no rape had occurred and the accusation was false.

It should be noted that the majority of these complainants came from low socioeconomic and educational backgrounds. It should also be noted that these are cases where the complainants ADMITTED that they were lying. One can only guess how many complainants are lying, but go forward with their claims despite the fact that the accusations are false! In another study the false accusation rate was proven to be 53% (assuming that other accusations were actually true). The part about false accusations starts after about 42 minutes into the video.

I went through over the last couple days and read every post and watched most of the videos including the last one which was really long! What amazes me is the complete and total disconnect between reality and what we are told on television and in mainstream media. Even the president believes the fake statistics. What could the reason be for this media brainwash and propaganda? Is it just to attract attention and grow their audience or is there more to it? This sexual grievance industry idea makes a lot of sense when you think about how much money lawyers make from cases involving sexual misconduct. Since most cases involve claims which can't be proven or disproven lawyers are able to charge for way more time than would be the case for normal trials. It's a big money maker and a total scam!

wildbill: The fact that even the president appears to believe the fake statistics is slightly baffling. It would take very little effort for him to check with staff to find out what the actual statistics happen to be. Of course, he relies on speech writers and aids and so it could be that they dropped the ball. The other obvious possibility is that he was fully aware of the actual statistics and pushed the fake statistics in order to move forward some national security or law enforcement agenda.

The main strategy used by those who profit from the sexual grievance industry to keep the public whipped into a constant state of sexual hysteria is fake statistics. The rational mind tells you that fake statistics should be easily exposed, but the press ignores the facts and always favors those who spread the fake statistics, which clearly indicates that the press profits from the sexual grievance industry. People in a state of hysteria often are attracted by information that supports and justifies their hysteria and so they are attracted like mindless moths to a flame to any source providng the information that they are addicted to.
