Sybarite: 'boys will be boys'I am so tired of that tautology.
lordaction: Considering the most recent studies show over 80% of rape claims are false, I don't see what the big deal is.
LordPomposity: Wow. Just unbelievable. I want to think most Americans are good people, but I just keep reading about them acting like this.

acidsurfer: "Something doesn't add up here. There is no way in hell any principal AND witnessing teacher would play down rape allegations in this manner. I am guessing the infraction described to the principal was not a rape but something else. Must be more to the story. Otherwise, our society is in real trouble."
lordaction: A Terrible Human: lordaction: Considering the most recent studies show over 80% of rape claims are false, I don't see what the big deal is.Citation?Sorry, meant to say 50%. Using the right hand numbers keys."According to a nine-year study conducted by former Purdue sociologist Eugene J. Kanin, in over 40 percent of the cases reviewed, the complainants eventually admitted that no rape had occurred (â€œArchives of Sexual Behavior,â€ Vol. 23, No. 1, 1994). Kanin also studied rape allegations in two large Midwestern universities and found that 50 percent of the allegations were recanted by the accuser....Kanin's findings are hardly unique. In 1985 the Air Force conducted a study of 556 rape accusations. Over one quarter of the accusers admitted, either just before they took a lie detector test of after they had failed it, that no rape occurred. A further investigation by independent reviewers found that 60 percent of the original rape allegations were false....According to a 1996 Department of Justice Report, of the roughly 10,000 sexual assault cases analyzed with DNA evidence over the previous seven years, 2,000 excluded the primary suspect, and another 2,000 were inconclusive. The report notes that these figures mirror an informal National Institute of Justice survey of private laboratories, and suggests that there exists "some strong, underlying systemic problems that generate erroneous accusations and convictions." (that's 40% for those not counting) ... That false allegations are a major problem has been confirmed by several prominent prosecutors, including Linda Fairstein, who heads the New York County District Attorney's Sex Crimes Unit. Fairstein, the author of â€œSexual Violence: Our War Against Rape,â€ says, "there are about 4,000 reports of rape each year in Manhattan. Of these, about half simply did not happen.
"Boys will be boys."
BarbadoSlim: Ladies, this is gonna happen so just deal with it.
Knara: Sybarite: 'boys will be boys'I am so tired of that tautology.Well, to be fair, it's only in statistically rare situations that boys won't be boys./also, gravity won't be gravity... there's a non zero chance, after all
