“No, you have said endless numbers of times that women should always be believed, by extension, you are also saying all men should be assumed rapists until they prove their innocence,” — please quote to me where I’ve said that because I’ve never once said that. This is what I’ve said:

Please demonstrate to me where (other than in your mind) it says that surveys aren’t a relevant way of gathering quantitative date, because experts on statistics say that it is. Which is why the fucking Center for Disease Control used it to gather information for the statistic that I quoted. But apparently you know more than they do — because?????

I’ve repeatedly quoted to you from a variety of sources just how prevalent false accusations are and what kinds of women make them under what types of specific circumstances. You have generalized that to mean that all women are vindictive liars — a lovely feminist sentiment.

You clearly are only able to think in all-or-none kinds of constructs. Meanwhile that isn’t how the world actually works. Which takes me back to why I am sad for your daughter and find you worthy of pity.

Although it did prompt me to write a new story, so thanks for that!
