      I am working on a documentary (mostly in WV) about men/women being falsely accused of child molestation as a tactic for revenge against a ex-husband/boyfriend or as leverage in a child custody battle or other similar cases. Please contact me if you or a loved one has been falsely accused. Or if you work in the legal system and have successfully helped clear a wrongly accused person in a similar case.

      MANY women, usually young women, cry RAPE, when in fact, they are trying to get revenge on a male for something or other. That is totally wrong. Especially, since a person can be arrested SOLELY on what the woman says instead of conducting an investigation. Many men are wrongfully accused, some are even sent to prison, and yet are INNOCENT of that crime. Once arrested, they can be humiliated, by requiring personal pictures of their genitals. They are subjected to pressure from fellow inmates since this information typically “leaks out” to the other inmates. Even if they are not sent to prison, the charges show on their record, even when found not guilty.

      I do not agree that a person should be arrested solely on a womans word. A woman, usually young women, can have consentual sex, sometimes even rough sex, and for whatever reason, turn around and put the blame on a man. She may do this because she has hurt feelings towards the man, or has other reasons for accusing him, such as covering up her actions because she has a partner and this is her way out, for example if she has hickeys or other marks on her. I personally know of someone who accused someone of rape, and later admitted to a friend that she only did it to make her dad mad and get even with him (because he was a friend of her fathers).

      Rape is not so cut and dry, there are many variables and I think it should be looked at more carefully on BOTH sides, not just siding or believing the woman. There are too many scornful women out there that would love to pin this type of crime on a person that is innocent of that crime, and therefore she totally and COMPLETELY ruins the mans life.

      Don’t get me wrong, I am completely and totally sympathetic for a woman if she is raped, ….after all I am a woman! On the other hand, sometimes the law sides with women wrongfully. For examaple, having consentual sex, and then feeling guilty about it later, or having sex while being committed to a partner and then trying to get out of it by crying rape, is a very bad crime and should NOT go unpunished!! It should carry heavy penalties just as rape does. It is not right to wrongfully ruin a man's life either. It is time that the law also look at the man’s point of view instead of always siding with the woman. It seems to me that law officials tend to side with women for the most part. But not all women are weak, naive, or innocent. Many women can be conniving, scornful and vengeful. A petition should be going around that a woman can face the same penalties, as that that a man faces for rape, for falsely accusing a person. I would be happy to sign that petition. Falsely accusing and sending an innocent person to prison is as bad a crime, if not worse, than rape itself.

      It's gone too far already, men are convicted all of the time without a shred of physical evidence. Just some manipulative narcisistic women and the brainwashing that they're all innocent and victims. the ones that lie about men to get their way, when they don't get their way, when they turn on a man, or want to get their own sorry asses out of some sort of trivial situation, like the one that lied about the guy that gave her a ride home because her friends were angry about ditching them. that poor bastard spent three years in prison before she finally admitted to it and barely got in any trouble at all, I would have dextered her for it

      What kind of country is this becoming when someone is guilty until proven innocent? Is this Afghanistan or the USA? Do the right thing. Reject the SaVE Act.
