you claim that women never lie and all men are to be considered rapists, that is not the America I would want to live in.

I’ve said nothing of the sort and have provided you with well established statistics and data. If you are unwilling to interface with those and instead launch into histrionics, and continue to perpetuate unsubstantiated myths, there is no point in continuing this conversation.

The America I want to live in is the one where women reporting rape or assualt are treated with the same respect and intial supposition of honesty that is granted to every other person reporting any other type of crime in this country. That shouldn’t be too much to ask, but apparently it is.
