No less than three of my friends were falsely accused of rape, it is now bizarrely common and young women are taking their lead from the media.
Women make false accusations against men defensively, in the belief that their accusation will prevent anyone accusing them of something in the future- generally it comes from personal insecurity.
In today's society men sometimes just cannot win, and young men should be vigilant not to associate with the kind of people who would air such false accusations or put themselves in compromising positions (like taking a drunk girl home alone).
I have heard many theories, very aggressive campaigns against accusers where pressure is applied on them through third parties "Sir are you aware your daughter has accused me of raping her, I am shocked and cannot tolerate these kind of public allegations being made". :Principal I would like to formally lodge a complaint against femanon, she has and persists in making defamatory claims about me on campus which are illegal, put me at personal risk and constitute harassment- I would like to request formal intervention and that she either lodge a case with the police or stop making such allegations on campus"
I have heard that it's better not to validate anyone who makes baseless claims by answering them at all, and just stonewalling accusers.
This gives the person making the allegations time to back down, or time enough to discredit themselves doing something else.
There is also the school of thought that it's better to give a concrete denial and simply repeat it without alteration- the "official line"
"The claims being made about me are baseless and malicious, I have never had sex or inappropriately touched femanon. There is no evidence to support her claims, and we can only speculate about why she may have made them"
