U.S. Air Force Study on Rape

The United States Air Force did a study during the mid-80s concerning false rape allegations within their own ranks. They found that 30% of all rape allegations were proveably false - and frankly if 30% are proveably false, we are safe in assuming that 35%-40% or even more are actually false.

Of course, feminist congresswomen found out about the investigation and demanded that the investigation be stopped for the usual political reasons. But the damage was done and it is now believed among non-ideological professionals (i.e., people that are not feminist lawyers or who do not work at women's shelters) that roughly half of all such allegations are false.

And since VAWA actually made filing false allegations easier than it was in the mid-80s, I am of the opinion that false allegations are probably a significant majority of all allegations today.

Human nature being what it is, we have no reason to believe the majority of allegations of rape, domestic violence, sexual harrassment, or even child abuse given the current legal and political climate.

We may never know the actual numbers on rape itself, but we can have a reasonable certainty that, among reported rapes, more than half are false allegations.

Read some comments on this subject appended to this article. Be warned - people often read the article at the top of the page and come away saying "This article supports feminist nonsense on rape." The top of the page represents the blog owner framing the issue, while the comments appended to the article are the real discussion. The Air Force article is mentioned a couple of times.


  1. Somebody once falsely accused me. My lawyer filed countercharges. My opponent no longer had the moral high ground of being THE plaintiff. I believe you can charge liars with filing a false
    police report. You can also charge the liars with something like filing a frivolous suit, a nuisance suit or a harassment suit. You are not a total victim if falsely accused, but you must have a good attorney and be prepared to fight.

    You have my sincerest sympathies.

    Thank God for a wise lawyer. Too many times men are simply encouraged to roll over and play dead for these false allegations. I am grateful for a man who is willing to stand up against Goliath and fight him... uhhhh, her.
