Rape liar can't keep story straight: first says her 'rapist' was white, then changes it to black

At two o'clock last Monday morning, Natalie Nicholas, a Montgomery County, Pennsylvania woman, went to Abington Memorial Hospital and reported that she had been raped and robbed.  She claimed she had been beaten to unconsciousness and when she awoke, the supposed offender was sexually assaulting her.

Gender 101: Father Love

By Connie Chastain*

By now, news of the devastating, late-April storm system that strafed the southeast United States with over 100 tornadoes has reached around the globe. As of this writing, the death toll has risen to 280.

US Ambassador: Gaddafi Distributes Viagra to Troops So They Will Rape Civilians in Rebel-Friendly Areas of Libya

In an effort to rally support among nations growing increasingly skeptical about NATO-led attacks on Muammar Gaddafi's forces in Libya -- especially India, Russia and China -- US ambassador Susan Rice announced in a closed door meeting at the United Nations Security Council that Gaddafi's forces were issuing Viagra, the drug used to treat erectile dysfunction, to soldiers "so that they go out and rape" civilians in areas that support the rebels.

Why isn't the men's rights blogging community making a big deal out of the most important false rape issue in recent times?

I refer, of course, to the Department of Education's April 4 directive and the related proposed SaVE Act now under consideration in the United States Senate. But outside of FRS, Paul Elam's A Voice for Men, and The Spearhead, few bloggers have even mentioned it.  Why?

I feel like the lighthouse described by the old American Indian:

Lighthouse, him no good for fog.
Lighthouse, him whistle,
him blow,
him ring bell,
him flash light,
him raise hell;
but fog come in just the same.

Man Alleging Sexual Assault Filed a False Report

Once again, a person who lied is called the "victim". Of what .... stupidity? And isn't it interesting that his name and vital statistics are published.  When have we ever seen that happen with a female false accuser?

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Jennifer, Suzy, Gina, Judith, Maria, Kathy . . .

. . . are some of the names from the most recent batch of signatures on our on-line Petition to Reject the SaVE Act.

This is not a "men's" issue; it's a "people's" issue. 

Just as no civilized person wants to see a rapist escape punishment, no civilized person wants to see an innocent man punished for a rape he didn't commit. 

Just as every sexual assault of a woman affects the men who love her, a false rape claim lodged against a man affects the women who love him.

Gender divisions are generated by people who love to hate. The rest of us know it is nonsense.

Blogger problems

Blogger is experiencing difficulties today in allowing comments for non-Blogger users (all anonymous and others who don't have a Blogger account).  It seems to be a widespread problem, so I suspect a lot of people will complain about it and demand it be fixed. Thanks for your patience.

Tell Congress to Stop Treating Your Son Like a Presumed Criminal: Read and Sign the Petition

Click here to read and sign: Reject the Proposed SaVE Act Absent Amendments to Protect the Presumptively Innocent

To our readers: U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) has introduced legislation to combat sexual violence on college campuses called The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE Act) (S.834), cosponsored by Senator Patty Murray (D-WA). It amends Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. There is so much wrong with this proposed Act that we could have made our petition into a mini-novel. We decided to focus on two areas which most people would agree are problems.  We also stayed clear of divisive discussion of rampant false rape claims, the underreporting canard, etc. and instead discussed only matters that are not open to serious debate.

The Proposed SaVE Act Tosses Your Son's Rights Onto a Scrapheap of Indifference

The worst of the draconian sexual assault directive that the Department of Education issued on April 4 likely will soon become a law enacted by Congress. U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) has introduced legislation to combat sexual violence on college campuses called The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE Act) (S.834), cosponsored by Senator Patty Murray (D-WA). The SaVE bill is found here. It amends Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.

Lake Arthur Woman Arrested for False Rape Accusation

A 17 year-old Lake Arthur woman has been arrested after state police say she lied about being raped by a Lake Arthur Police Officer.

'If it's a crime report it . . . What are these statistics that get thrown at us constantly?'

I wave the white flag. I admit defeat. I can't possibly write about all the news pertinent to this blog. Keeping up with the false rape claims is sufficiently difficult, even with two of us doing it, but working through the op-ed pieces on sexual assault is impossible. Worse, the op-eds are painful to read. One inane op-ed cascades upon the next until they collapse upon one another to form a sort of Rorschach inkblot of bright-lined, unmistakable man-hatred.

But as I clawed my way through the horse dung of op-eds this morning, I came across a piece that was at once so lucid, so perceptive, and so true, it made it all worthwhile.

Top Villains in the Duke Lacrosse Hoax

One of our most astute readers, Zarko, has written a mammoth piece on the top 15 villains of the Duke lacrosse hoax. The words and opinions are his. You can read it here.

College Women Not Charged For Underage Drinking So Long As They Cry Rape

Consider the following facts, which are neither new nor controversial:

(1) "College administrators nationwide say that alcohol is the worst health risk their students face."

(2) "In most allegations of sexual assault, alcohol is involved."

There is no dispute that, aside from its clear and unmistakable correlation to health risks unrelated to sexual violence, alcohol is a significant contributing factor in most sexual assaults that occur on campus.

So, how do college administrators combat both the foremost health problem on campus (alcohol abuse) as well as the most politicized (sexual assault)?

When God allowed his son to experience the greatest injustice possible: a wrongful conviction

False rape claim triggers killing of two men

Rape liar tells her cousin and another man to shoot her boyfriend in the penis "so he don't use it no more."

A tearful Priscilla Ramirez, 21, telephoned her cousin Philip Perez Gonzales Jr., 27, and asked him to come and get her. Mr. Gonzales complied, and brought his friend Michael Lee Armstrong, 23, with him. Ms. Ramirez told the two men that her boyfriend, Everett Antonio Taylor, 28, had raped and beat her, and that she wanted them to deliver a little payback. Ms. Ramirez got in their vehicle and took them to Mr. Taylor's apartment in a housing project.

I don't need to criticize feminism, I just quote it

"Well, what do you want the police to do—just let women who make false reports GET AWAY WITH IT?! Yes. That is exactly what I want. Because I frankly think that most reports called "false reports," which constitute less than 2% of rape allegations, aren't actually false reports in the first place . . . and that the tiny remainder of authentically false reports do not warrant the continuation of a practice that empowers rapists and discourages survivors of sexual violence from reporting the crimes against them, for fear of being arrested if their allegations can't be proven."

A college feminist's morally grotesque, factually vapid, defense of the April 4 directive to lower the standard of proof in sexual assault cases

Viviana Arcia, Stanford class of 2013, proffers the most reprehensible, morally grotesque, and factually vapid defense of the Obama administration's April 4 directive to colleges to lower the standard of proof for sexual assault cases to date. The April 4 directive means that there need only be a slight probability that the offense occurred in order to hold the accused (almost always a male) responsible.

Woman Arrested for Making False Sexual Assault Allegations

Six are sentenced for vicious home invasion stemming from false rape claim

Exactly one year ago, on April 18, 2010, Felisha Hardison, 25, from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, along with her mother, picked up a group of young men, ages 19-22, and drove them to the home of Cody Wightman, 25. Hardison and her mother then sat in their minivan while the young men proceeded to kick in Mr. Wightman's front door, then punch and kick him, and finally, beat him with a claw hammer. They cut Mr. Wightman's head and bruised him, but, thankfully, Mr. Wightman survived the attack relatively unscathed.

Behind bars for false rape claim

A woman with learning difficulties who lives in a care home has been jailed after admitting a false rape claim.

Chaston has been diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder.

'Rape Culture' Round-Up: to Get Your Blood Boiling for the Weekend

▲George Washington University violated Title IX by creating a "biased and one-sided process" against males "in the manner in which it approaches the investigation, adjudication, and appeal of allegations of sexual assault" where "the accused is so fundamentally denied due process as to be virtually assured of a finding of guilt . . . ."

Gender 101: The War on Women by Connie Chastain*

Earlier this month, before the federal government's budget deal was struck, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congresswoman from San Francisco, former Speaker of the House, she of the periwinkle blue suit and ginormous gavel of the health care free-for-all, spoke at the Women Money Power Summit sponsored by the Feminist Majority Foundation. According to CNN, she said there is a war on women.

When Titanic Sank 99 Years Ago Today, People Were More Honest About Gender Roles Than They Are Today

If I were to ask you to think of a hero who refused to give up his or her seat on a vehicle of public accommodation merely because of their birth class, you likely would think of Rosa Parks, a black woman who refused to budge in the front of a Montgomery, Alabama bus in 1955, even though the seats up front were “reserved” for white people.

You likely would not think of J. Bruce Ismay.

Police were wrong to charge woman for making false rape report

An interesting follow up to a 2008 story we ran HERE. It appears that the rape accuser was actually raped, so I wanted to make sure we ran this.  Women, of course, should not be charged with making a false rape report simply because police don't believe her:

Police rule campus sexual assault false

An investigation by University Police at A&M-Commerce has determined that a reported sexual assault earlier this month was false and did not occur.

Obama Administration Risks Holding Innocent College Men Responsible for Rapes They Didn't Commit in Order to Nab More Rapists

If the following sounds like so much legal mumbo jumbo, or if you don't think any of this really matters, you are gravely mistaken.

Currently, many colleges apply a "clear and convincing evidence" standard of proof to disciplinary hearings for sexual assault.  This standard means that to find an accused person responsible for sexual assault, the school must produce evidence that unequivocally establishes a very high probability that the alleged assault occurred.

Colleges apply this standard for one reason and one reason only: to insure that innocent persons are not held responsible for wrongs they did not commit.

This month, the Obama administration has directed colleges that to be compliant with Title IX, they must apply the lowest standard of proof for all college disciplinary proceedings involving sexual harassment (which includes sexual assault): a "preponderance of the evidence standard," which means that there must only be a slight probability that the offense occurred in order to hold the accused responsible. 

There is no dispute about the intent of this directive: to charge and hold responsible more young men for sexual assault and related wrongs. By necessity, when the standard of proof is lowered, a policy decision is made that it is acceptable to risk holding more innocent persons responsible for wrongs they did not commit.  In a milieu where false claims are already too prevalent, that should be unacceptable to all persons of good will.

The Chances of Holding Your Son Responsible for a Rape He Didn't Commit Have Just Skyrocketed

The Most Important Issue This Blog Has Ever Reported

Under the Obama administration's new directive, a male accused of sexual assault may be expelled from college, and his freedom to go on to graduate school and obtain decent employment may be curtailed and even destroyed, even if there is only a very slight probability that he committed the assault.

That's not hyperbole.

One of our readers destroys the 'study' that the new Title IX sexual assault directive relies on

Yesterday, we posted a very important story about the new Title IX directive that is going to change how rape cases are handled on U.S. college campuses.  We noted that the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights has just done something most people would not have thought possible. It's made college campuses even less friendly for male students. Among many other things, they've lowered the standard of proof for sexual assault cases -- from now on, to be in compliance with Title IX, at a grievance hearing on a sexual assault charge, the school need only prove the male's responsibility by a preponderance of the evidence.

A reader to this blog -- I can vouch for this man's brilliance -- destroys the rape study that this new Title IX directive cites. If you want to know how dishonest our own government can be when the subject is rape, read this. The following are the words of our reader:

Whirl Around the Wacky World of Gender Double Standards

From current news stories:

Woman sends lover to jail for months with rape lie -- because she was mad that he took her cell phone

Melinda Denham, 25, told police, and then a grand jury, that her ex-boyfriend, Shannon Hudson, raped her twice in the bedroom of her father's home.  That's all authorities needed to jail Mr. Hudson for months. He was charged with burglary and two counts of rape, crimes that could have sent him to prison for 30 years.  Finally, Denham wrote a letter to a judge and admitted she lied.

Gender 101: Incompatible -- Feminism and Civil Liberties

by Connie Chastain*

A very odd thing happened today. I ran across an article by a feminist that didn't get my back up or ruffle a single feather. I don't think that's ever happened before.

Birkenhead prostitute jailed for false rape accusation

So once again, we see a story where a man is arrested and held for almost a day, BEFORE the investigation uncovers the evidence that no crime was committed. Maybe the police should try the investigation part first, and the arrest part second. And notice, that the theft of the iPod, merits almost as much time as falsely accusing someone of rape.

I don't criticize feminism, I just quote it

This is an actual comment posted under a story to this site today -- all because I have the audacity to advocate for persons who've been falsely accused of rape:

Ex-judge forced to apologize for not being tough enough on alleged sexual assault

Is the way she dressed pertinent in a rape case?

Wearing high heels and fishnet stockings and brandishing signs with slogans like “down with rape culture,” "slut walk" demonstrators took to the streets in Toronto last week to protest a Toronto police officer’s comment that women could avoid rape if they didn’t dress like “sluts.” See here.

There is a typical rapist, and he's not the upper middle class college boy next door

Those who harbor delusions of "rape culture," where attitudes of sexual aggression and dominance are supposedly normalized (yes, "normalized" is the word they always use) in constructions of masculinity, go to great pains to insist that there is no such thing as a typical rapist. They suggest that the handsome, white, blue-eyed, hetero, upper middle class, Christian, college athlete down the street is just as likely to be a rapist as the underprivileged kid from the inner city who grew up without a father.

Woman files false rape report in Pearl

Frat boy antics create hostile sexual environment at Yale, say chronically offended gender warriors

The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights announced it will investigate Yale University “for its failure to eliminate a hostile sexual environment on campus, in violation of Title IX.” The announcement stems from a complaint filed by 16 Yale students and alumni over Yale’s supposed inadequate response to a "long trend of public sexual harassment" on Yale’s campus.

Latest Reason to Play the Rape Card: To Avoid a DUI Charge

Another case that illustrates how false rape claims are used excuses for pretty much anything some women want to hide.  Beth Ellen Rivera, 26, recently paroled from jail after pleading guilty to a drunk driving charge last year, fled the scene of a two-vehicle accident in Polk Township, Pennsylvania on Wednesday night, claiming that a man had raped her and that she was fleeing him.
