False Rape Reports 
16th-Apr-2005 08:54 am
One of the subjects guaranteed to get strong reactions: most guys are aware of them, most girls don't admit that such things can occur. As it turns out, even if the girls are right, a large percentage of the reported rapes may be false reports.

What does that imply? Well, it implies that you don't take the word of anyone who says, "People don't lie about that."

Of course, if you were believing that statement, you would have missed out on an essential point about people: people tell lies, for all sorts of reasons, on all sorts of occasions. If you know that, you filter a bit. If you don't, you occasionally fall on your ear (which is probably tired by this point.)
