Women's Sexual Assault Advocates are Upset that University of Virginia Rape Did Not Occur

Advocacy groups would not have any reason for existing if their cause disappeared. The Race Industry would cease to exist if everyone's skin turned one color. The same is true of the Sexual Assault Prevention industry. If men disappeared tomorrow what would the sexual assault centers do?  Go after women who prey on other women?

Well, we are finding out. When the report of a brutal gang rape at the University of Virginia turns out to be a hoax, the entrepreneurs of the Sexual Assault Industry worry that their business will go down. Evidence that a symbiotic relationship between a disturbed young woman and an author who has made a career out of fabricating sexual assault stories "could set a dangerous precedent." That's according of Rebecca Weybright who worries that the next female who claims to have been raped may have to actually produce some evidence as opposed to having her victim thrown out of school - or worse: being sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

The findings may prove to be an obstacle to sexual assault prevention and adjudication in the future, according to John Banzhaf, a public interest law professor at George Washington University.

“This Rolling Stone debacle, coupled with the recent memory of phony allegations of rape [by lacrosse players] at Duke University, and a Justice Department study showing that widely cited estimates of the rate of rapes and other sexual assaults on college campuses has been grossly exaggerated, may blunt so-far successful efforts by the federal government and anti-rape groups to force colleges to not only crack down but to also convict more male students,” Banzhaf said in a statement given to The College Fix.

Banzhaf said “almost two dozen courts” have found in favor of accused males who sued their universities to obtain justice.

The Charlottesville police findings could prove detrimental to victims of sexual assault who are seeking justice, if they come to be seen as “the boy who cried wolf,” Banzhaf added.

Director Rebecca Weybright of the Sexual Assault Resource Agency of Charlottesville echoed Banzhaf’s worry over the effect the investigation’s conclusion could have on assault victims.

“Why would somebody want to put themselves to be potentially subjected to what, the amount of questioning and I’m sure the criticism?” Weybright said in an interview with NBC 29.

Further, Weybright was concerned Jackie’s discredited account could set a dangerous precedent.

“My first thought was ‘oh my gosh this is just going to make more people not believe survivors,’ and that’s pretty devastating,” Weybright said.

For people like Weybright = No Rape.  No Cause.  It's Terrible.

Then perhaps the solution is to recognize that...gee-we need evidence-not "feelz"-and we need due process for a reason.

And I notice that, once again, these activists show NO concern for the REAL victims of false allegations-the men who suffer harm from them.

"Gee, wahh, we can't convict more men because evidence...."
