"False Rape Charges: More Common Than People Think"
Why would anyone falsely accuse another person of rape? The most common answer usually reveals some element of revenge, for something done to the accuser that she (or he, believe it or not,) is angry or enraged over. A study conducted on this subject in the Journal Archives of Sexual Behavior,(Vol. 23, No. 1, 1994,) reported that false accusers were commonly motivated by a need for an alibi or a desire for revenge.

Take a reality pill, Homer, and call me in the morning.
I have a sister who was violently raped by a stranger when she was 13 and a good friend who was raped continuously by her cousin when she was 10 (her parents didn't believe her).

Thankfully my sister was given a morning after pill, but the mental scars that were left will last a lifetime. As for my friend, she is in her 40's now and still will not lock the bathroom door because that is what her cousin would do.

I find your comments highly offensive.

LOL! Is that a Mormon hymn?
Maybe. It’s a country singer, Sandy Posey, who recorded a whole slew of songs about women being oppressed by men and feeling proud of it, a position that’s diametrically opposed to political correctness. Her music genre was bouncy depressing.

I believe she may have been squished in one of those binders full of abused women.

Come on Republicans, according to Carol you all should revel in this statement - "some girls rape so easy?"

Maybe slap it on a bumper sticker.

The patriotic women are getting behind Mr. Romney in droves , they have already pushed him six [6] points ahead of the obumbler , what a great day for women and America , I predict a mental breakdown for all the obamas and a whole of burning and looting after Nov.6 .

"silly"
You on occasion can be very sick. Very sick.
I am a conservative and your statement above that republicans/conservative men are pigs with no regard for women. The republican way, is absolute bullmanure and it is offensive to millions upon millions. You lump deviant behavior with political belief. That is absolute bullmanure. Political leaning is not a factor. Liberals and conservatives and middle of the roaders may be sexual abusers.
Peace
Why am I sick? It's the Republican candidates who come up with a new rape story every day; what do you attribute that to?
Rape is not sex, it is control and hatred of women. Have any Democratic candidates made rape comments? No. It's a republican thing so own it.

Tom Smith, GOP Senate Candidate: Pregnancy From Rape Similar To 'Having A Baby Out Of Wedlock'

Todd Akin told a TV interviewer Sunday that women’s bodies are almost always able to prevent pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape.”

Friess: This contraceptive thing, my gosh it’s such inexpensive, back in my days we used Bayer aspirin for contraception, the gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.

GOP lawmakers seek to legally redefine rape as “forcible rape” so fewer women will qualify as victims

Another GOP lawmaker (surprise, surprise) worries that women will claim rape just to get abortions

Pundits and lawmakers: Forced ultrasounds are OK because women already consented to be penetrated when they got pregnant.

When women sign up for the military to hang out with aggressive dudes, they are asking to be raped

Santorum and Huckabee are all about rape victims taking one for team “Life.” Let’s not forget our Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee, respectively, think rape victims should “make the best” of it and see the unwanted child as a gift and sometimes cool people are conceived in rape.

Romney, strong stance??? You sure that wouldn't be "wide" like one of your other heroes claimed as an alibi? The triple-dippin' flip-floppin' Mitt is too chickenshit to face Whoopi Goldberg or Barbara Walters--I'm sure he'd do a good job of standing up to Putin. LMAO

860 million over ten years. I think they need to look at this & dump dining cars for vending or less labor intensive means.

BTW, the government does not own all the preferred stock of our healthcare system & run all the hospitals & hire all the doctors. Evidently, you seem to think so.

That's horrible, Were the rapists prosecuted?

I agree with Carol that there are the possibilities of cases that are not rape but an act of revenge. It does happen, sad to say, because then this makes it bad for the real rape victims.
Rape is a hard thing to prosecute, it's usually a he said, she said scenario, with no witnesses. Unless there is evidence of brute violence and dna, it can be tough to prove, especially if it is a date rape situation.
