    Teach men not to rape? Teach women not to make false rape claims and ruin peoples lives. And not to lie. Or overreact. Or destroy other peoples property. Or encourage and praise other women who do it.

    HOW ABOUT NO. HOW ABOUT YOU QUIT LOOKING FOR EXCUSES TO ALWAYS BLAME THE WOMAN AND TAKE FAULT FROM THE MAN. HOW ABOUT WE TEACH OUR SONS TO RESPECT WOMEN, AND HOW ABOUT WE QUIT USING CASES LIKE THIS TO VALIDATE MEN RAPING WOMEN AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT. HOW ABOUT THE NUMBER OF CASES IN WHICH A WOMAN’S BODY WAS ACTUALLY VIOLATED SO INCREDIBLY OUTWEIGH CASES OF FALSELY REPORTED RAPE THAT IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY. HOW ABOUT YOU JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP BECAUSE YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT YOU’RE EVEN TALKING ABOUT, YOU MISOGYNISTIC RAPE-CULTURE PROMOTING ASSHOLE.

    How about you stop living in fairyland where all women are flawless princesses and men are all big bad evil rapers? False rape cases don’t invalidate actual rape cases, false rape accusers invalidate actual rape cases. Sit the fuck down, because

    In 1989, Gary Dotson became the United States’ first innocent prisoner to be exonerated through DNA evidence. Dotson had already served 10 years of a 25-50 year sentence for aggravated kidnapping and rape. Although his accuser recanted her story in 1985 and said she made it up to cover a sexual encounter with her boyfriend, a judge refused to order a new trial, saying that the complainant’s original testimony was more convincing than her recantation. In 1988, Dotson’s defense attorney conducted previously unavailable DNA tests, which ultimately proved his innocence. An innocent man served 10 years for a crime he didn’t commit, and which even his accuser admitted never even happened.  One study shows that between 1989 and 2003, 328 men and women convicted of rape were exonerated; over half of those had already served 10 or more years of their sentence, despite their innocence.

    False rape accusations are serious, potentially destroying the lives of the accused.  While some organizations show that only 2% of rape claims are unfounded, other research shows false rape claims to be as high as 43%.  The FBI’s 1996 Uniform Crime Report states that 8% of forcible rape claims are unfounded, compared with the 2% average for all other crimes.  The FBI statistic only accounts for forcible rape charges determined to be false through investigation.  It does not take into consideration the number of other false sexual assault claims or the number of accusations recanted or dismissed at trial.

    Locally, the OSBI reported 1,453 rape offenses in Oklahoma in 2008.  If the FBI statistic that 8% of rape claims are unfounded holds true, that means there are potentially 116 Oklahomans wrongfully accused and convicted of rape each year.

    Some victims’ advocates claim that women don’t lie about rape; however, recent high-profile cases have proven that to be untrue.  Kobe Bryant, Ben Roethlisberger, and the Duke Lacrosse team represent only a few of the incidents of false allegations of rape that have received national media attention.

    Some reasons accusers lie about being rape include:

    • spite or revenge
    • an alibi for their own sexual encounters
    • a ploy for sympathy or attention
    • regret over sexual indiscretions

    Copperfield, 53, heralded Carroll’s arrest as proof that the woman was a liar and a gold-digger, interested only in extorting money from Copperfield and cashing in on her allegations. In a statement prepared after consulting with their client, Copperfield attorneys Patty Eakes and Angelo Calfo on Tuesday said Carroll “admitted to lying to police about the rape because she had to. Her lies were caught on tape, so she plea-bargained her way out of a jail sentence. “Her guilty plea shows that her claim that she was blacked out was nothing more than another Lacey Carroll hoax,” they said. “Now she’s a convicted liar; she’s a disgrace to women who have been truly victimized.” (http://www.davidcopperfieldsetstherecordstraight.com/)

  11. cosmicbreaker asked: Hi, Wil! I'm not trying to be antagonizing. You seem to be rather progressive, and really vocal on a lot of social issues. I'm bringing this up because I feel like you'd take it seriously. Using 'spirit animal' is kinda uncool. Different forms of it belong to specific cultures that are already having a hard time with erasure/delegitimization, partially through appropriation. I've heard suggestions of using 'patronus', or 'daemon' (from His Dark Materials trilogy) as alternatives. Cheers!

    wilwheaton:

    ktempest:

    wilwheaton:

    I got a lot of messages like yours that were bordering on antagonizing, but I’ll respond to you: this was entirely news to me, and I never meant to be offensive.

    I’ll be honest: I think it’s a little much to get upset about this, but I am fully aware that I’m living life on Scalzi’s Lowest Difficulty Setting, with the Celebrity Cheat enabled, so I’ll own that reality up front. My ancestors murdered untold numbers of Native Americans, and I hate that my country was built on their blood, and I hate that the worst poverty in America exists on Tribal lands. What I hate the most is how many Americans don’t know or care. Those issues are, in my opinion, more important than words. Having said that, I see the point you make, that so much has already been taken from native people, and when a White Guy takes something more, it’s uncool.

    I never meant to take anything from anyone. I think Spirit Animals are really cool, and I love everything I’ve ever learned about native or aboriginal culture. I’m not trying to appropriate or lessen anything by expressing how much Kelly Sue inspires me, and how I try to be more like her.

    It’s amazing how problematic this apology is. I don’t even think Wil gets that he’s whitesplaining.

    For the education of those who might find themselves in this situation, here’s a primer on what’s wrong with this response.

    First: “I got a lot of messages like yours that were bordering on antagonizing, but I’ll respond to you

    I didn’t like the Tone those other people used. Yours was appropriate! I’ll talk to you.

    Second: “I think it’s a little much to get upset about this, but…

    This doesn’t affect me and I’ve never given it two seconds worth of thought. And even though I’m about to launch into a whole explanation of how I get it, I need you to know that my first reaction is that everyone is oversensitive.

    Third: “My ancestors murdered untold numbers of Native Americans, and I hate that my country was built on their blood

    This outpouring of white guilt somehow brings it all back to me and how I feel. Curious that.

    Fourth: “I never meant to take anything from anyone. I think Spirit Animals are really cool

    THIS WOULD BE THE CRUX OF THE PROBLEM, SIR. SIR? SIR.

    Fifth: “I’m not trying to appropriate or lessen anything by expressing how much Kelly Sue inspires me, and how I try to be more like her.”

    The point is not what you were or were not trying to do, it’s how what you did affects others. Why don’t you express your admiration for Kelly Sue in ways that are not appropriative? Why MUST you express admiration in this exact way?

    Also, how fucking hard is it to say: “Oh, I did not realize that invoking Spirit Animals like that is a problem. I won’t do it again." ? That’s really all you needed to say. You didn’t need to whitesplain or get defensive AT ALL.

    Let Wil Wheaton serve as an example of What Not To Do! Trust me on this, y’all.

    I didn’t realize that invoking Spirit Animals was a problem, and I won’t do it again. I thought that was clear from my reply, and I regret that I didn’t make that explicitly clear.

    Also, would you please excuse the fuck out of me for explaining my thought process, and attempting to share my admittedly complicated and uncertain reasoning. Please excuse me for acknowledging that I’m a privileged heterosexual white male in a manner that was not to your liking. Please excuse me for admitting that I haven’t thought about something that doesn’t affect me, because it does not affect me.Excuse me for — wait. I’m sorry. That’s not what I mean. I don’t mean that I need you to excuse me for anything. What I mean is: you’ve shown us all a spectacular way to alienate a potential ally with your self-righteous anger and indignation.

    Here’s a pro tip for you, incredibly angry person: when someone is polite and respectful, reasonable adults ten to reply to them a lot faster and with more thought than we do to someone who is a condescending, angry, belligerent asshole. I sincerely hope that you are able to find peace and happiness in your life, and that you’ll continue to speak out about issues that affect you. As I said, you have to have the courage of your convictions and you can’t just sit down and shut up.

    You can also not be a dick about it.

    Upvote for WilWheaton.
