I am shocked, shocked!

You mean to say that women sometimes do lie?

It appears that the U of Wisconsin co-ed who disappeared earlier this week planned it all herself. Now, I would be willing to bet she has some serious emotional or mental problems. But still, she made the whole thing up. Luckily, no poor innocent guy was thrown into jail on account of her story.

Look for the feminist lobby to go into high gear over this. Recalling Anita Hill's famous statement "women should be supported regardless of proof", they will maintain that she should be treated as a victim and not be prosecuted, lest real victims be "discouraged" to "come forward".

Bull. Throw the book at her. If anything, to teach everyone a lesson that allegations of kidnapping or rape or sexual abuse are serious things, with the potential to destroy the lives of innocent persons who are wrongly accused. False accusations are not just simple things to be bandied about willy-nilly, and false reports waste valuable police resources. Worst of all, the police may be alot more suspicious of the next sensational report of kidnapping.

And that hurts everyone, especially the real victims.

The only thing worse than fake rape is ex post facto rape -- that is, deciding afterward that it was awful, therefore it must have been a rape even when one consented passively. Posted by: meg at April 2, 2004 06:08 PM
Regarding those type of "date-rape" allegations, I think alcohol or drugs are involved in something like 2/3 of all cases. I'm glad it's you meg. We've been getting drug-sale spams lately. Posted by: Captain Holly at April 4, 2004 02:26 PM
