What type of person lies about being sexually assaulted?

In the wake of the #MeToo movement and Kavanaugh hearings, men across the United States worried aloud about the impact of false claims of rape or sexual assault. What happens, they wondered, if everyone believes the women by default? How many men’s lives could be ruined?

The truth is most allegations of sexual assault are rooted in fact. The vast majority. It’s not even close. An article in the Minnesota Law Review noted that only two to eight percent of rape claims are false. It also pointed out that most rapes go unreported. As a result, the ratio of false reports is likely closer to .002% or .008% of all incidents. But in the rare case someone does stand falsely accused, the statistics don’t matter.
