    [–] Trump ‘kept kissing me’ in Trump Tower, woman says: ‘I was devastated’ Friscogonewild 1 points ago in politics

    Can we take a moment and appreciate how desperate and cringe-y this is, creepiness notwithstanding. Bragging about kissing? What is this, Junior High?

    [–] Apple confirms it has acquired Shazam Friscogonewild 5 points ago in news

    The Sinbad movie?

    Are they also buying rights to the Berenstein Bears?

    [–] Homemade human catapult. Friscogonewild 31 points ago in WTF

    You've got a fucking lot to learn about catapults, buddy.

    [–] 'Explosion' at Manhattan bus terminal Friscogonewild 2 points ago in news

    True, probably not, unfortunately. Still, the proper response is not to inflict a life of torment on a human being.

    [–] 'Explosion' at Manhattan bus terminal Friscogonewild 6 points ago in news

    Fuck this guy, but we're still a nation of laws and morals, and this seems unnecessarily cruel. Kill him and get it over with.

    "Maybe I'll send him a thank-you note for saving me the trouble of having to prosecuting him by not leaving any evidence."

    "Dear X, congrats on getting laid. I wish you best of luck in future rapes!"

    Whatever. What I means was, he said "2 of the following need to happen", and if those 2 scenarios are both Seattle's and LA's, it will not help Green Bay. It's not accurate.

    Seattle could beat LA and then lose out and LA could lose out and GB could still miss the playoffs.

    Even real victims should not feel comfortable ruining their abusers' careers without evidence

    This feels crazy to me, for a crime with so little evidence as rape. The only evidence to begin with is DNA, and even then, all the rapist has to say was "it was consensual" and them bam, zero "evidence".

    What evidence do you think a rape victim needs to have before trying to get justice? Video footage? Verbal confession?

    You're saying that even actual rape victims shouldn't be pursuing convictions without evidence? Insane.

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild 2 points ago in news

    So rape victims need to shut up until their rape is proven in court? Do you see how that's troublesome, considering that 80% of rapes don't get a conviction, given the lack of evidence that's even possible?

    Rape victims have the right to tell their side of the story prior to conviction, because sometimes the only conviction they're going to get is in the court of public opinion. It's up to us to use good judgement when it comes to the possibility of false claims--the onus shouldn't be on legitimate victims.

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild 3 points ago in news

    Even if it's 70%, that's no reason to be pissed off at people speaking out against rape. What are they supposed to do, shut up and take it?

    [–] Packers Ways To Make The Playoffs Friscogonewild -3 points ago in GreenBayPackers

    Option B is not entirely accurate. Both Seattle and LA could lose out and if 1 of the other 3 South scenarios don't play out, the South takes both WCs.

    [–] Updated: totally premature playoff playoff possibilities - Now with more King of the North Friscogonewild 1 points ago in GreenBayPackers

    Pretty unlikely. Only way CAR wins a tiebreaker with ATL is if they beat ATL in W17, and the only way they'd then both end up at 10-6 is if CAR lost to TB and GB and if ATL beats both TB and NO.

    Of course, if this happens and NO drops one of its other games and there's a 3-way tie for the South, ATL would win the division (CAR eliminated at division record, ATL over NO head-to-head) and NO would take the WC over CAR due to their season sweep, and GB would be out in the cold.

    Still sounds like we should be more upset with people who believe all accusations without hesitation than the people actually talking about rape. Though I think most accusations are taken with the appropriate amount of salt.

    Your explanation is a good one, and explains why false accusations could be higher than for most crimes, but I don't know if I can lower my opinion of humanity enough to believe that is significantly higher. Maybe I just don't know enough sociopaths, but I've never met someone who's falsely accused someone of rape or been falsely accused. Nor have I been accused, and I've been with some crazy women. It feels like we get a big feeling of justice whenever one of these cases turns out to be false, but there's very little fanfare for the thousands of rapes that go unpunished, at least on reddit.

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild 3 points ago in news

    Whatever the percentage, we should not get pissed off at everyone for speaking out against rape just because some claims are false and just because some people will accept all claims as credible.

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild -4 points ago in news

    Why do you think it would be falsely reported more often than other crimes?

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild 2 points ago in news

    A huge case that makes world news is average? I rather think the average case is somewhere between there and some insane chick making some easily disproved claim and nobody but the girl's best friend caring about it.

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild 1 points ago in news

    I don't, but there's a search function on the site.

    His life is still ruined

    I see this stated a lot, and I don't know a single person whose life has been ruined over a false claim. What happened to this guy that his life is ruined? Or is that a bit of hyperbole?

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild 8 points ago in news

    Not to mention that 5% ruin lives with no consequences.

    We're literally in a thread about an article where a woman goes to jail for a false rape claim. This is not an isolated incident--articles like this are on reddit pretty frequently.

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild -4 points ago in news

    Yeah, upper estimate is 98%, but I aimed for the middle.

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild -30 points ago in news

    Okay, so why are you defending a guy who is sick of people who have been raped speaking out about rape?

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild -43 points ago in news

    So you're upset about the 95% who speak out against their rapists because of the 5% who are lying? Why isn't your beef with the people who are assuming guilt instead of with rape victims?

    [–] 'Rejected' woman jailed over rape claim Friscogonewild -54 points ago in news

    That is why I am SICK of people crying out rape all year long

    Why are you sick of it, if they were raped? ~95% of all claims are legitimate.

    Assuming guilt is another issue altogether.
