Great! Your Wikipedia article confirms what I said, between 2–10% false reporting. The other one is scientifically useless. So out of 109 people in one small community over a 9 year period some 41% were deemed to be false. That proves absolutely nothing at all. What were their criteria for determining what was true and what was false? What was their academic background that allowed them to make that determination? Where did they get their sample from? Why was the sample size so small? Where did the pool come from? This is not scientifically relevent data, despite where it was published because it does not meet any kind of useful scientific criteria for a valid study or survey. A “rational” person would see that at a glance.

And what exactly do you get for yourself by trying to prove that most women are liars; that no bad things have every happened to them at the hands of men — they’ve just made it all up to be bitchy and hurtful? It’s such a petty, small position to take in the face of all the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. And still, no-one is saying that all men are horrible; what they are saying is that nearly all women have had horrible experiences at the hands of men. That’s an entirely different thing and if you can’t differentiate between the two, it’s because you don’t want to. It doesn’t make you look proudly masculine; it makes you look like a weasley little baby who has to undermine the experiences of those who are hurting in order to build himself up. I’m not saying you are those things; I’m saying when you take that kind of position it makes you come off that way.
