False Rape Accusers
False Rape Accusers are individuals who willingly and knowingly makes or files a false rape accusation. This is arguably more corrosive to civil society than any other violent crime. False accusers make a cynical use of the legal system for personal vendetta, or in many cases, for profit and elevated social status which comes from being classified "victim." Western courts and governments appear to be encouraging this, and incentivizing false rape accusations, by lowering the standards of evidence - and providing victim benefits, legal anonymity and reduced civil rights for individuals accused.
The list of false rape accusers presented on this site represents only the tip of the iceberg. A majority of false rape accusers are never charged, much less convicted. Among other things, many jurisdictions have informal policies not to charge false rape accusers due to external political pressures on the courts, which insist that charging false rape accusers will deter rape victims from coming forward. Some commentators have expressed a position that false accusers should not be charged at all. This is not the position of the editors of this site. Of those false accusers who are charged, an inordinately high percentage are convicted. False rape reporting is the only crime for which charges are generally brought only when law enforcement is close to 100% certain of a conviction. But many false accusers are not charged, even after recantation.
