Feminist False Rape Report Compilation
Rape is bad, but false allegations are worse. For every actual rape reported, there is a false allegation of rape made. Solve the more serious problem first (that of false allegations) and solving the other lesser problem will be much easier. Law enforcement and the media reward false accusers and almost never hold them accountable. Such non-sense should not be tolerated.

There Is No Rape Culture... Stop
Hysterical claims rebutted by intelligent person. This happens so rarely in our society that this is almost surprising.

How Young Girls Are Being Sold for Sex on Backpage.com
Media news cashing in on sensationalistic pseudo-news story for about the millionth time. First of all, backpage.com is not and should not be considered responsible for what people post on their site. If a user under the age of eighteen claims to be eighteen or older, then the problem is with the dishonest user, not with backpage.com. The real focus of this story should be on bad parenting techniques and the reasons why teenagers run away from home. That's the real issue here. Underage prostitution (recently rebranded as sex-trafficking) is somewhat of an issue, but more of an excuse for unnecessary laws than a legitimate widespread social problem.

Most people have probably heard about the lawsuit filed by Jared Fogle against the parents of one of his alleged victims. It's in reaction to a lawsuit they filed against him. Supposedly the alleged victim appeared in some child pornography found to be in a computer belonging to Fogle. So although Fogle never met the girl and isn't accused of hiring someone to photograph the girl, the law allows lawsuits against people in possession of photos of this nature. At any rate, Fogle has evidence that any mental trauma suffered by the girl was the result of the dysfunctional relationship of the parents and he apparently has a lot of evidence supporting this assertion. It will be especially ironic if it turns out that the parents were the ones who took the photos in the first place, which actually would not be at all surprising.

After looking over a post made yesterday to another thread I read a little about Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I found the following quote quite appropriate and it fit this thread quite well. Many laws which never existed before and which should be totally unnecessary have been created in the last few decades. Here's the quote: There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kinds of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of lawbreakers.

wildrose: Unnecessary laws? That's an understatement. So many acts that at one time were the personal business of the participants have been criminalized, that it's a wonder we don't have to get permission from some governmental agency anytime we want to have intimate relations with another human being. And then there's the whole what counts as porn debate. It used to be that the First Amendment protected all free speech. Now so many exceptions exist that I wouldn't be surprised if the First Amendment becomes irrelevant within a few years.

Backpage.com CEO Will Fight Sex Trafficking Charges, Lawyer Says
Lots of bogus newspeak in this news clip. First of all, the CEO of backpage.com runs a website. He does not post ads. If there are any laws being broken it is not his responsibility at all and only those who post the ads should be prosecuted. The legal authorities realize this, but they are grandstanding and realize that they will not be held accountable for violating this man's rights (unless of course he hooks up with a high powered constitutional law attorney who will go after the legal authorities for violating his rights, but that's a case with a high legal bar since you have to prove that the legal authorities knowingly broke the law with malicious intent... which is clearly and obviously the case, but judges are apt to let it slide). The other crazy thing about this case is that less than one percent of the ads posted pertain to under-aged girls and those ads are not explicit about the age of the girls, thus making it impossible for backpage.com to recognize and delete those ads. The other big thing done here is that the word victim is used to refer to prostitutes (nearly all of which decide for themselves to engage in illegal sexual encounters) and the use of the term sex trafficking instead of prostitution is also misleading. The idea is to sell the public on this rebranding since most people realize that prostitution should be legal as it is in Nevada.

Backpage.com CEO Facing Sex Trafficking Charges
ShadyLady makes several good points. This news report illustrates the use of several techniques used by activists to push an agenda. In fact, this is an example of poor journalistic practices and is more of a propaganda piece to push an anti-prostitution agenda. What they did was take one case where an underage girl was exploited by a third party (something statistically extremely rare) and misrepresented it as typical. There was no critical analysis, just emotional smoke and mirrors. The ads placed at backpage.com by that third party were not explicit and the general volume of ads placed at the site is too high to screen as they are posted. Unless law enforcement spots an ad and informs backpage.com that an ad offering explicitly illegal activity exists on their site, it's not reasonable to expect backpage.com to remove it. The charges against the CEO of backpage.com are clearly in violation of the law. It is not the CEO of backpage.com who broke the law, but the legal authorities who are harassing him through misapplication of existing laws who are breaking the law. The legal authorities should be held accountable, but that never happens. Legal authorities often abuse their positions to push personal agendas through misuse of the law. The real problem here is bad journalism and corrupt law enforcement.

Eight women accuse Trump of sexual harassment
It's amazing how false accusers magically appear on cue just at the right time to distract from the WikiLeaks email leaks. There have been several examples in the last few years where false accusers show up to defame political figures at just the right time to block or move forward someone's agenda. Which is exactly why I'm completely unimpressed by any of these opportunistic liars who are accusing Trump of sexual impropriety at this time. Sorry. Just not buying it!

Another Trump Accuser is a FRAUD Says Witness
All the ladies on the Trash Trump Train seem to have come out of the woodwork at about the same time. How coincidental that it's only a month before election day. Each of these ladies seem to want to cash in on an opportunity for a little publicity and possibly fame. It's the same old story we hear over and over. Whether it's Cosby or Trump, it's just opportunistic bitches doing what opportunistic bitches do.
