Rape Denial: He Said, She Said

This myth is a popular one that magically disappears when it is convenient such as in the case of the Liberian immigrant who had sex abuse charges dropped because the court couldn't find an acceptable translater in a timely manner.

Based on very little information, many people just know he's guilty and they know it could be proven in court if the judge had any sense at all.

I wonder how many of those people would stop knowing this if he were a star professional athlete facing the exact same charges with the exact same evidence. How many would again believe in "He said, she said"?

This rape denial myth comes and goes so easily that it gives me whiplash.

Respected businessman -- "He said, she said."

Homeless man -- "Guilty!"

And so it goes far too often.
