On Rape Accusations

Rape is a serious problem in America. I think you’d have to be willfully blind to disagree with that statement. One reaction to this has been to automatically treat every woman who accuses a man of rape as though she must be telling the truth. This is, I think, an improvement over treating all such women as liars.

However, neither extreme is correct. Some women, apparently most women, are rape victims. Some women are liars. Some women lie about being rape victims.

I think this article does a very good job of discussing the issue in depth.
