In the comments on an earlier post about the UVA rape hoax, someone appended a list of similar hoaxes perpetrated at colleges. The original source of this list appears to be by Eric Owens at the Daily Caller:
- In 1990, Mariam Kashani, a sophomore at George Washington University, who was a rape counselor and worked for a rape crisis hotline, told the school newspaper about a white woman who was raped by two black men on campus. The men held the woman at knifepoint and the men had “particularly bad body odor”. When the two men were finished, Kashinai said, they laughed at the woman and told her she was “pretty good for a white girl”.
When her story crumbled, Kashani said she was really sorry and insisted that she “had hoped the story, as reported, would highlight the problems of safety for women”.
- In April 1991, Princeton University student Mindy Brickman falsely accused a fellow Princeton student of raping her, spreading her claim through conversations around campus. She also repeated the smear at a campus “take back the night” rally.
Once Brickman’s claim fell apart, she wrote an apology in the pages of the Princetonian newspaper: “I never intended for anyone to be hurt by my statements, which were intended to raise awareness for the plight of the campus rape victims”.
- In 1993 at Oberlin College, a “take back the night” group posted a number of signs on campus labeling an apparently randomly chosen, innocent freshman as “Rapist of the Month”. An 18-year-old male student, a philosophy major, was retrieving his mail when he first saw the signs calling him a rapist. He tore down the signs and had to deny the allegation to his friends.
“I haven’t even dated at Oberlin,” the student insisted. “I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. I couldn’t have gotten myself in that kind of situation.” A friend described him as “almost boring”.
Sophomore Emily Lloyd suggested that critics of the falsehood were missing the “take back the night” group’s larger point. “So many women get their lives totally ruined by being assaulted and not saying anything,” Lloyd explained. “So if one guy gets his life ruined, maybe it balances out.”
- In November 2004, Desiree Nall, a student at Rollins College in Winter Park FL and the president of the local chapter of the National Organization for Women, told police during Sexual Assault Awareness Week that two men raped her in a bathroom on campus.
Police became skeptical of Nall’s claims after she couldn’t keep her story straight and was unable to provide descriptions of the two men, and an examination at a sexual assault treatment center showed no evidence of any sexual assault.
Nall, 23, eventually recanted her fake rape allegations. Police suggested that Nall could have been attempting to “make a statement” about sexual assault, and ultimately spent $50,000 investigating Nall’s imaginary claims. Nall was charged for making a false statement to police. Her husband defended her, insisting the cops targeted her because “she is a women’s-rights activist”.
- In February 2013, Morgan Triplett, 20, visited the University of California, Santa Cruz for a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender conference. While there, she claimed that she had been raped in broad daylight on the campus. The bizarre truth is that she successfully used Craigslist to locate a stranger who agreed to beat her up in exchange for sex. Her first ad sought somebody to shoot her in the shoulder. Her second ad, seeking someone willing to “punch, kick and bruise her” panned out.
Triplett met her unnamed mangler in Santa Cruz, he beat her up and they had sex. She used a cellphone screen reflection as a mirror to see if the injuries were sufficient, and then told him to pummel her some more. With fresh bruises to substantiate her tale, Triplett then informed 911 that a mysterious assailant had raped and battered her while she was walking on a path looking for banana slugs — the UCSC mascot.
- In April 2013, former University of Florida student 22-year-old Tanya Borachi said a man dressed in black and wearing a black mask and gloves brutally tied her hands and gagged her while she was getting out of her car. She only got away, she claimed, by kicking the man in the groin and running, still tied and gagged. Her roommate, who fell for her story, unbound her.
Boarchi initially defended her fabricated story by saying that she was trying to teach the world “a lesson to women in the area that an attack could happen to them”. Police charged Boarchi with filing a false police report.
Feminists do this deliberately — purposefully making false claims of rape — because it advances their ideological agenda.
People need to wake the hell up.
