More rape statistics by the biased for the biased — A new Forum Research telephone survey of 1,658 concludes that one in five women have been raped or sexually assaulted. Yet that widely contested figure is still not good enough for radical feminists. University of Ottawa law professor Elizabeth Sheehy (whose previous claim to fame is a book that advocates justice provisions that would permit female victims of domestic violence to kill their abusers without legal penalty) insists the poll number is a “lowball of what’s happening here.”

Why Does Due Process Go Out The Window With Rape Cases? — Zerlina Maxwell wrote that we should “automatically” (see the URL for the original headline) believe rape victims. That goes against everything our system of justice stands for, as we base cases on the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. I’m not going down that rabbit hole–and neither should any American who believes in law and order.
