A common narrative circulating throughout society today is that women should be believed in their accusations of men sexually assaulting them, no matter how little evidence they have.

Between Sen. Mazie Hirono telling men they need to shut up about Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s lack of facts and fall in, and Oprah encouraging women to stand by “their truth” in the face of disbelieving men during her now famous #MeToo speech at the Golden Globes, the culture has been steered toward women being the ultimate arbiters of reality.

We’re told ad nauseam from politicians, feminists, and activist groups that women would never lie about such a thing as a man sexually assaulting them, and thus, should a woman ever make this kind of accusation, we should immediately view the accused as guilty. Due process be damned.

“For a woman to come forward in the glaring light of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time,” said former Vice-President Joe Biden.

As of this writing, a hashtag movement called #BelieveSurvivors in trending with national protests being held all around America. The call is to believe people like Blasey Ford in their accusations, not facts.

But the truth of the matter is, women are fully capable of lying for a bevy of reasons. They can especially lie about being raped or sexually assaulted for selfish goals.

As Thought Catalog listed 12 women in one of their articles who had been proven to lie about being their respective assaults for reasons anywhere from jealousy to attention, to masking their infidelity. Rolling Stone was so quick to buy the “rape culture” narrative that they released a bombshell article about the gang rape of a woman named “Jackie” that turned out to be completely false, with “Jackie” being a woman who had a history of making false claims for attention. In fact, being a rape victim became trendy at one point, and false claims were being made left and right, especially from the social justice parts of Hollywood.

In fact, Guardian columnist Jessica Valenti became so bold that she straight up promoted the idea of false rape accusations in order to make men afraid of women.

The same was seen from Teen Vogue columnist Emily Lindin who called men suffering due to false accusations a “microscopic risk” in the face of the oppression of women.

Women are humans, and humans are fallible creatures. Women are capable of making bad decisions like everyone else. Because of some of these bad decisions, innocent men have had to suffer. Some of them were ejected from a University or jobs, and some of them were sent away to prison for years before they were found innocent.

It’s highly likely that Kavanaugh’s accusers are lying for a number of reasons. Perhaps they truly believe that Kavanaugh will be a detriment to women once on the bench. Perhaps they’re just following the party line and doing what’s asked of them. Perhaps they’re just seeking attention.

Could they be telling the truth? It’s possible, but it’s also possible that my dog will suddenly find the will to learn the complexities of the English language and intentionally begin making human sounding words. It’s possible, but the probability is so low that it’s probably not going to fall into the category of reality. There’s no evidence for it.

However, there is plenty of evidence pointing to the fact that Blasey Ford, as well as Kavanaugh’s new accuser, Deborah Ramirez are making this all up as part of a political ploy to deny Kavanaugh a seat on the Supreme Court.

Women are humans and humans lie. Some women lie about rape. This isn’t up for debate. This is recorded history. It seems more and more that Blasey Ford and Ramirez will both go down as additional liars.
