If I seem to be arguing past you it’s because you are stating things that have zero basis in fact. I can’t speak to the points you are trying to make because they have no foundation other than how you think or imagine things must be.

Out of women who go to police, something like 60% are able to get conviction, no word on how many of those convictions are wrong.” None of that is even remotely true.

According to RAINN, out of every 1,000 rapes, only 310 are reported to the police; of those, only 57 lead to arrest, 11 cases will get referred to a prosecutor, 7 cases will lead to a felony conviction and only 6 will be incarcerated. (This doesn’t even mention how they might only serve 3 months of a 6 months sentence, despite eye witnesses to the crime, like Brock Turner).

“Perpetrators of sexual violence are less likely to go to jail or prison than other criminals.”

Quoting from the above article, which I suggest you read to better understand the facts:

“But my research — including academic studies, journalistic accounts, and cases recorded in the US National Registry of Exonerations — suggests that every part of this narrative (that false accusation is common)is wrong . What’s more, it’s wrong in ways that help real rapists escape justice, while perversely making it more likely that we will miss the signs of false reports.

Innocent men rarely face rape charges.”
