La gaffe du magazine Rolling Stone

Selon les féministes, il ne devrait pas y avoir de présomption d'innocence dans des cas d'allégations de viol. La présumée victime (toujours une femme, dans leur esprit) devrait être immédiatement crue et son présumé agresseur arrêté, congédié ou suspendu sur-le-champ.

Évidemment, c'est du délire et on vient d'en avoir une bel exemple.

En effet, le magazine Rolling Stone a décidé de publier une histoire à propos du viol qu'aurait subi une étudiante de la University of Virginia et que les autorités de l'université auraient refusé d'investiguer. Évidemment, l'article a plongé l'université dans une crise majeure avec manifs féministes et tout le bazar. Les féministes ont sauté là-dessus pour prouver la "culture du viol" dont ils parlent sans cesse. Sans parler de la chasse aux sorcières pour essayer de démasquer les auteurs de ce viol. Tout ça à cause des allégation non-vérifiées d'une jeune femme.

Pour avoir une idée du tsunami médiatique, cliquez ici (MSNBC), ici (CNN) ou ici (PBS).

Or, un VRAI journaliste s'est finalement intéressé à l'affaire et il a découvert que le récit de la jeune femme est rempli de contradictions et de faussetés. Si bien que le magazine vient de publier une rétraction. Ils ont l'air d'une belle gang de caves.

Voilà ce qui arrive lorsqu'on décide de croire des allégations sans vérifier et sans investiguer. Non seulement on provoque une crise inutile, on salit la réputation de gens innocents, mais pire que tout, on fait du tort aux VRAIES victimes de viol qui ne seront peut-être pas prises au sérieux à cause de ce genre de conneries.

De plus, les quelques rares journalistes qui ont osé faire preuve de sens critique et de scepticisme face aux allégations sans fondement de cette jeune femme ont été vicieusement et publiquement attaqués et diffamés par les féministes:

When journalists did scrutinize what they viewed as weak and one-sided reporting, they were met with accusations of victim-blaming. 

(...) When Worth magazine Editor in Chief Richard Bradley voiced his skepticism in a blogpost, he was immediately declared a “UVA truther” by New York magazine contributing writer Marin Cogan, who compared him to 9/11 conspiracy theorists for even questioning Erdely’s story (...) Cogan has since apologized for using the term and acknowledged she was wrong about the story.

(...) But others, like feminist writer Amanda Marcotte, have merely shifted focus to how “rape apologists” will greet the news of Rolling Stone’s admission of their report’s shortcomings, while still believing Jackie’s story 

(...) The lesson Marcotte drew from the magazine’s climbdown was that it was “interesting that rape apologists think that if they can ‘discredit’ one rape story, that means no other rape stories can be true, either.” She cited no examples. While others were debating the failings of Rolling Stone’s process, Marcotte was railing against “rape apologists [who] are so sure rapes are hoaxes...”

(...) Still others attempted to turn the focus away from Jackie onto the magazine that credulously told her story. The Guardian’s Jessica Valenti excoriated Rolling Stone on Twitter: “Kudos on throwing this young woman under the bus for your failures. Assholes.” Their failures were many, but if her story doesn’t check out, shouldn’t “this young woman” be thrown under the bus?

Pour les féministes, il est tout simplement inconcevable qu'une femme mente à propos d'un viol. Pour elles, ça tient de la science-fiction.

Or, comme l'indique cet article, non seulement les fausses accusations de viol existent, mais elles sont même très fréquentes. Et elles sont faites pour une grande variété de raisons. En voici quelques extraits:

Any honest veteran sex assault investigator will tell you that rape is one of the most falsely reported crimes that there is. A command officer in the Denver Police sex assaults unit recently told me he placed the false rape numbers at approximately 45 percent. Objective studies have confirmed this. See Purdue Professor Kanin’s nine-year study published in 1994 concluding that over 40 percent of rape allegations were demonstrably false.

(...) After a woman falsely accused a man of rape in Orlando, FL, police told local news reporters that false reporting “has reached an epidemic level” [4]. They then made a point to ask the community stop making so many false rape claims because it was draining precious resources from the criminal justice system.

Sgt. Sandra Tomeo of Plano PD told reporters for the Plano Star Courier that false rape accusations were “a common occurrence,” citing numbers indicating that ~47% of rape accusations made to Plano, TX police were demonstrably false.

(...) The nature of false rape accusations is different from false reports of other crimes in ways that distinctively facilitate false rape claims. Accusing someone of rape claims require virtually no physical evidence. For this reason rape lies can be flung about for all sorts of reasons.

Rape lies are sometimes concocted as a form of revenge to land ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands in jail, or as a means to get rid of a current partner. A woman may lie about rape to cover up the fact that she is cheating on her husband, which sometimes results in her husband killing her lover. Sometimes, if the husband is having an affair, the woman the man is having an affair with will falsely accuse him of rape if she is caught by his wife.

Some female students falsely accused their teacher of rape because they get poor final grades in class as an excuse for failing their exams. Other women make up false claims simply to get attention, or because they regret a consensual sexual encounter. In some cases women lie about rape to get an abortion (...). There is also a rash of Feminists who make false rape claims (especially in academia) as a means to “raise awareness” of the problem of rape.

Sometimes entire groups of men are falsely accused, which happened at Duke and Hostra University. While both cases were highly publicized and accompanied by public outcry neither false accuser was charged. One woman cried rape because a man forgot her name.

There is also virtually no limit to which some women will go to fabricate a false claim. Some women seek out S&M/bondage encounters and use the rough sex as “evidence” against the men they falsely accuse. Some women give themselves black eyes, or rip their clothes and scratch their faces, or cut themselves, or tie themselves up as “evidence” against the men they falsely accuse.

There are also some women who use false rape claims as a means of extorting money from men. In some places women who claim rape can immediately apply for “victim’s compensation,” which has led some women to lie about rape just to be handed free money.

Je sais, je sais... ce n'est vraiment pas très édifiant. Mais c'est la réalité. Que ça plaise aux féministes ou non, les femmes ne sont pas toutes de pauvres petites victimes pures et innocentes et les hommes ne sont pas tous de dangereux prédateurs.

Parfois, les hommes sont les victimes des femmes. C'est ça la réalité.
