Not only do women who lie about rape destroy the reputation of a man, but they also make true rape victims not believed, they waste the time of the local police force, and they are not punished whatsoever for their crime.

The U.S. Air Force studied over five hundred rape accusations in 1985. More than 130 of the accusers admitted, either just before they took a lie detector test or after they had failed it, that no rape occurred. A more in depth investigation by independent reviewers established that 60% of the original rape allegations were a sham.

Yes, I have reputable sources that 26% of women lie about rape. The FBI statistic of 8% only counts women who confessed to lying DURING or AFTER the initial court dates, while the U.S. air force statistics include confessions BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER the initial court dates.

So, women do lie about rape.

To sum it all up, false accusers make real victims not believed, destroy the life of an innocent man/woman, and waste the time and money of the local police force.
