Half of all rape accusations are false

CR reports:
With the cooperation of the police agency of a small metropolitan community, 45 consecutive, disposed, false rape allegations covering a 9 year period were studied. These false rape allegations constitute 41% the total forcible rape cases (n = 109) reported during this period. These false allegations appear to serve three major functions for the complainants: providing an alibi, seeking revenge, and obtaining sympathy and attention. False rape allegations are not the consequence of a gender-linked aberration, as frequently claimed, but reflect impulsive and desperate efforts to cope with personal and social stress situations. ...

Back in 2013 I did some digging on this. And I remember that study you cite: Eugene Kanin at Purdue conducted a study that showed, according to police reports from one city, that 41% of rape claims were untrue, and a full 50% of claims at two universities were untrue. Other researchers have come up with similar numbers for false rape accusations: Gregory and Lees, 1996: 45%. Jordan, 2004: 41%. Chambers and Millar, 1983: 22.4%, Grace et al., 1992: 24%. McDowell and Hibler, 1985: 27%. Buckley, 1992: 25%. Washington Post, Virginia and Maryland, 1991: 25%. Even the lowest number is TEN TIMES the number of false rape allegations that feminists will admit to.
The news has been dominated women's sexual allegations that are much less serious than rape. They mostly consist of some inappropriate flirting. How many of those do you think have been described accurately? Is there any example of any of them that has been substantiated to have been described accurately?

A lot of flirting sounds awkward and inappropriate when described out of context. When the words and facts get distorted, it can sound worse.

I am not doubting, for example, that some actresses were having relations with Harvey Weinstein in order to get movie parts, but I don't think that we are getting the whole story in any of these allegations.
