As the campaign against forced sex called “Rape” gathers momentum, the need to raise our voices against a twin-devil, “false rape accusation” is more important now than ever. It is important to state that like sister-deviants who arbitrarily and unilaterally force their ways through others genitals or rectums for sexual gains, amidst others; false rape alarmists are worse evils whose very existence need be checked at all cost.
Equally important to note is that this later set of deviants do grave harm, not just to the psyche of their victims, but to the morals of society, which empathy is exploited and manipulated for personal gains. For the victim, the injury cuts deeper and leaves him/her with the course of proving innocence where and when such prove is unnecessary.
The victim’s reputation in public is cannibalized and probably left in tatters; whilst in private, same reputation might be placed on permanent scrutiny depending on the cognitive capacity of those around him/her.
The victim’s self-worth is also set on a potential downward spiral if and when the accused has limited capacity for self-motivation. The result of this might be suicide or its tendencies such as depression, isolation, balkanization of personal image, etc…
For the society, the trauma is deeper but less felt. What it does for starters is creating a hallucinating moral fabric, thus engendering suspicion among neighbours and friends who were formerly and solidly on good grounds with themselves. Society becomes the unwilling tool for redefinition of social cohesion, all thanks to false rape accusers.
In most cases, the accused is judged and sentenced to a live of regrets and pain by a jury with a morbid sense of deduction. Lives are shattered… Society is hoodwinked and caused to float unanchored until, if it ever happens, a reasonably educated argument and reality to debunk the false rape accusation is ushered into public discourse.
Before then, the false rape accuser has succeeded in raping not just the innocence of its victim but the reputation of same victim and the moral cadence of society. Rape is Bad! Its an Evil that Must Be Stopped!!
