A lot of you emailed me this, but I think most of you are missing the more important point. It isn’t that women are prone to lie about rape. It’s that they are, from a legal perspective, children:
Darrell Roberson came home from a card game late one night to find his wife rolling around with another man in a pickup truck in the driveway. Caught in the act with her lover, Tracy Denise Roberson – thinking quickly, if not clearly – cried rape, authorities say. Her husband pulled a gun and killed the other man with a shot to the head.
I’m sort of curious what feminists will make of this, if anything, since on the one hand, they like to criticize all men as potential rapists, and on the other, they very much dislike the notion of men leaving women to their own defense. But the more important part of the story was in the last paragraph:
His wife also was charged with making a false report to a police officer – for allegedly saying she was raped – and could get up to six months behind bars on that offense. It was not immediately clear whether she had a lawyer. She had not been arrested as of Friday afternoon.
Of course not. Because, after all, she is a woman, and therefore a legal child, and therefore cannot be held responsible for her actions even when those actions have lead directly to someone’s death. I’d be surprised if she ever sees trial, in the unlikely event that she does, I’d expect her to get probation.
