Gee, who would think that your lawsuit would collapse when you swore in a previous lawsuit that you never visited the place you now say you were molested...

It's why if you ever lie, make it a small lie. If you go big, at least practice and write it down so you remember.

He's about to learn the true meaning of "getting molested"

You have to wonder what drives false rape and false molestation accusers. Once you've failed at extorting a settlement, why push it to trial knowing fully well you're completely full of it? Or, do these people actually believe they were molested as a function of false memories?

But I was told that Bryan Singer was just as bad as Roman Polanski and furthermore.

Think about how many people just on Fark were immediately ready to condemn Singer just on the basis of the accusation alone. Rape and child sexual abuse are crimes that are so heinous that our bias reflexively shifts towards the accuser and it usually takes evidence that doesn't just cast doubt on the accusation but completely collapses it to make it go away. If I had zero morals and were looking to utterly destroy another person's life and reputation, that's probably where I'd start.

He made the accusations in a documentary. Odds are he had to file the lawsuit to prevent an injunction from blocking the movie's release.

This is sadly true. And the consequences for it are nowhere near what they are for whomever is accused.

And stoli n coke - I stand corrected on the timeline. That would certainly make sense timing-wise, with the added benefit of more publicity of course.

There was some wacked-out conspiracy theory floating around that he was paid off by Marvel to try to tank DoFP with bad publicity.

Goebbels never said that though. It's just historic revisionism on behalf of the winners of the war.

Well, Singer was kind of an easy target. He's a gay filmmaker who frequently works with teenagers and has a history of liking them young. Couple that with some Farkers hatred of anyone involved with a Marvel franchise that Marvel doesn't control, and the hostility was inevitable.

I rmember the news and that we had threads on it, but I don't remember how the threads went but IIRC the words "bout time" and "twink parties" were thrown around a lot.

He also was associated tangentially with people who fled the country to avoid jail time for the same thing this guy accused him of, even though his name *never* came up in that round.

Did you not read the article? The accusers story has been completely blown away to the point where even his lawyer dropped him since he didn't have a case and wouldn't make money.

He's even being countersued for the accusation.

Kind of tough to establish the accused as being in Hawaii for the sexual assault when tons of production documents had him in Canada working on the first X-Men.

Are you seriously tracking criminal patterns on a website that claims to be "Not News?" "Crying rape" isn't much use outside of defaming celebrities, and guess who the news is almost solely about. Most rapes go unreported and most reported rapes result in zero punishment for the rapist.

But for some reason when you rape a kid, that kid is definitely not lying and the rapist deserves to burn in hell for all eternity. No such luck if you rape an adult. What's the difference?

I don't think there's much to reconcile about that, since I've literally never once seen anyone say that.  Whereas 'biatch is probably lying' makes it's way into the thread on any rape case whether there is eventually a follow-up or not.

Not Goebbels, Hitler, and with way more words: "All this was inspired by the principle-which is quite true within itself-that in the  big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the  big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously."

Probably a good life decision, overall, I guess.  That's one of the subjects that tends to give the politics tab its reputation for concentrated stupid even by the site's standards.

Money, attention, power.

CSB time: I had a "friend" cheat on her boyfriend with her roommate, the story changed over a week from a one night consensual mistake to her saying "he basically raped me." After the story changed she was explaining to me how evil this guy was, as if she'd never told me earlier in the week "we had so much sexual tension, and when we started making out I couldn't help myself. I just wasn't thinking about my boyfriend."

tl;dr: some people are dicks for selfish reasons.

A good, or bad, way to view the world is something I've just heard called "banana politics".

The basic theory is that humans are not complex creatures of magical intellect, they are just monkeys who THINK they are complex. So if just pretend everyone is a chimpanzee and the whole world is a big zoo, then you can easily predict things.

When the no name guy accuses multiple celebrities of pedophilia, break it down to chimp terms. The celebrities have lots of fruit and their own territories. This lone chimp swings into their territory and throws poop at them and points at the fruit.

What's that chimp's motivation? Justice or just desire for fruit?

No, if I recall correctly (and I do, because I responded to the post), Singer must be a rapist because he likes to have consensual sex with lithe young men who are of legal age, and he likes to pay for stuff for them and buy them stuff and maybe occasionally give them a minor role in a film to keep them around.

The same kind of behaviour that is congratulated and admired in straight men of his position was presented as evidence that Singer must be a rapist.

Now, he may well be, but that is some homophobic bullshiat right there.
