How many men lie about being raped and physically abused?

A number of posters here tonight have claimed that the figure of 'false r**e' claims is as high as 90 per cent, so that must mean 90 per cent of male r**e victims lie too, mustn't it? And other posters continually claim that the level of physical abuse claims is way overstated, so that must mean men are lying about this as well. I find it shocking! Is there a social epidemic where everyone is lying about this stuff? What a terrible social tragedy, if so.

Men rarely lie about r**e. Women get raped more than men.. so 90% is a realistic statistic. 90% of r**e victims are women and children. Its rather naive to think children can't lie about it as well. I lied my butt off when I was a little kid.

Your question is valid; however in my opinion - percentages are make-believe averages most often baseless or referencing unrealistic comparison. We could say 90% of the answers are "pro" your point or 90% responded favorabily, but we don't know what I used my computation. How many people did I ask? How many did I... More

That's too embarrassing for most men to lie about.

Women lie 90% of the time and men tell the truth 90% of the time. You didn't know? I think we all learned a few things in here this morning.

If this is the case and 90 percent of men lie about domestic violence then it is time we start readressing female victim domestic violence again. It would seem that it is mainly women that are dying at the hands of their intimate partners more so than men.

Men that do get raped, typically get raped by other men. Most often in jail, as I alluded to in another answer. And I gotta ask you, what kind of man would claim to have had that happen to him that had not? Think any male would be proud of having rolled over for predatory sickos because he was afraid of getting the... More
