False rape claims are placing us at peril of witch hunts and then, in time, against all who will not bow to leftist rule.
The performance of women this week – from Senator Dianne Feinstein to Christine Blasey Ford to the howling mobs on Capitol Hill – made me seriously consider surgically altering my sex. They are demanding special treatment because of their sex and in the process placing all of us – male and female alike – at peril of witch hunts against men and then, in time, against all who will not bow to their rule.
My Facebook friend Alex Bensky reminded me of the advantage to me of transgendering:
Ah, then we’d be unable to criticize your politics, your social viewpoints, your choice of teams to root for, and anything else you say because we’d be transphobic.
As a footnote, I’ve seen an estimate that the transgender population is about 0.05% of the population. This is hardly a warrant for beating up people but it is not clear to me why unless we substantially alter social arrangements that have existed in almost every known human society and celebrate…not just accept but celebrate…transgenderism, we are mean, hateful people.
Victor Davis Hanson offered up the most succinct summary of Blasey Ford’s testimony:
The “process” of memorializing Ford’s testimony involved a strange inversion of constitutional norms: The idea of a statute of limitations is ossified; hearsay is legitimate testimony; inexact and contradictory recall is proof of trauma, and therefore of validity; the burden of proof is on the accused, not the accuser; detail and evidence are subordinated to assumed sincerity; proof that one later relates an allegation to another is considered proof that the assault actually occurred in the manner alleged; motive is largely irrelevant; the accuser establishes the guidelines of the state’s investigation of the allegations; and the individual allegation gains credence by cosmic resonance with all other such similar allegations.
Unless, however, you do not want to transgender, I want to note how we came to such a place, a place both ridiculous and dangerous.
I want you to pay attention to the distortions of language and statistics used to advance the gynocrats’ agenda.
Since when do those accusing others of crimes become “survivors” rather than “accusers”? How you frame your self-description affects views, doesn’t it? If you claimed that someone had raped you, why must we always believe you just because you tag yourself “a survivor”? Do we do this with those who claim to have been robbed or beaten? “I’m a robbery survivor, so you have to believe me when I say X robbed me.” The shift in language is to message that accusers must always be believed. It is, at heart, based on a gross distortion of statistics.
It is difficult for many reasons to determine the percentage of false rape claims, to be sure, but like the claims about 97% of “climate scientists” and global warming, the assertion that only 2% of women’s rape claims are false is itself demonstrably false. We don’t know the answer, and since we don’t, we should not upset laws and precepts guaranteeing due process for all those accused of the crime – men and women alike.
