    Women who provably lie about rape allegations should face the sentence their victim would have.

    I say proveably false so that doesn't include real cases with no evidence.

    Your op isn't visible but I definitely think there should be more attention put to male rape and outrage

    Rape culture doesn't exist. You can't call a crime a culture- do we ever talk about mortgage fraud culture?

    It's seriously messed up that a person would lie about being raped, not only does it ruin lives, it contributes to people discrediting actual victims.

    It wasn't just one person who lied, it was thirteen.

    Yes, of course. Welcome to 2016 where being male is a crime in itself.

    That's crazy. All 13 of those girls should go to jail - and I agree this should be much wider spread in the media

    They're still anonymous, they haven't been named and shamed, and in all likelihood, they never will.

    It's a perversion.

    For the time being male-hating is only on Tumblr/Facebook/some alternative, left-wing websites, but it's only a matter of time before it hits the mainstream.

    Being a male is as bad as being a nazi.

    Totally going to be that guy, but I could only find this article on "mensviews.com" and there were certainly some damning quotes from facebook conversations but no screenshots or actual evidence any of it was made up.

    How do we know for sure it's all a fabrication?

    Edit: Just had a look around the site and concluded it must all be satire.

    In fairness although the case might be there's always others...

    Still though it's not that common a problem, but I do think the women should;t be kept anonymous if it's proven to be slander. We were having this discussion at work last week actually as I'm friendly with two of the girls there in particular. A guy working there was being a bit too touchy feely and so they reported him, he got a stern warning for it and if it happened again he;d get the sack. Now they even said to me that realistically there's nothing stopping them from pretending he'd started doing it again and reporting him, it's two people's words against one and no one is going to investigate it thoroughly. They were saying it's a pretty unfair situation for a guy, saying not that they ever would, but they could go to the bosses and report me for groping them, guy X, guy Y, wouldn't matter, we could deny it all we like but if they went as a pair and turned on the water works if necessary, they could create whatever result they wanted (the guy having a talking to but it not going too far as at their request as they didn't think it was malicious). But somehow if a guy went and complained a girl kept putting their arms around him or was patting his arse when we didn't want them to......the result might not be quite the same.

    I thought this was going to be a discussion about men who are rape victims. Probably happens a lot more than it gets publicity for.

    Tbh rape is one of those stupid crimes which you can't really enforce unless they made a tape - it's all circumstantial.
