False Rape Accusation After Totally Consensual Public Sex Act

I don’t want to discount the severity of rape or its psychological repercussions on a person, but if something smells fishy, I’m going to point it out.

There’s a story out of Ohio that lit up Twitter when a photo was posted to it that showed a young woman and a young man engaging in a sex act on a public sidewalk.

The woman, a 21-year-old college student at Ohio University, is seen sitting on a ledge in front of a storefront window, her hands resting casually on the ledge on either side, while the man kneels before her with his hands between her legs.

A video of the incident was also taken and posted online, and revealed he was doing more than using his hand while he was down there. According to the anonymous person who submitted the video to the Athens Police Department, “the video shows both parties actively participating, and they both acknowledge that they are being filmed and observed.”

Another eyewitness says there were “like 10 people” standing around and watching.

At one point in the video, the woman puts her hand on the back of the man’s head as he’s doing his thing. She isn’t pushing him away, but pulling him closer, the meaning of which is the precise opposite of “stop.”

After the photo and videos were posted online and the 21-year-old woman felt ashamed of actions that can only be described as slutty, she went to the police and said that the whole incident was rape, forgetting that in order for rape to have occurred, it (1) needs to have involved actual sexual intercourse, otherwise it’s molestation, and (2) it can’t have been consensual.

It is very obvious in the video, watching the woman’s own actions of happily going along with the man and eagerly pulling his head closer to her crotch, that she was not being raped; it was totally consensual.

Of course feminists are up in arms at the suggestion that a woman would dare lie about being raped (because women never do that!), nevermind that she wasn’t raped. Feminists say that the doubters of the woman’s story are just “victim-blaming.”

But they have no concern for what is so obviously happening:

  • The woman and the man were both sexually aroused
  • The woman wanted the man to do what he was doing
  • The photos and video were posted online, revealing her face
  • She became embarrassed and ashamed of her actions, now made famous on the Internet
  • She wanted to spare her dignity and quash any notion that she was a harlot
  • She went to police to claim it was all forced upon her
  • And now the man is being raked over the coals and persecuted by the public for something he didn’t do

When her story is officially decided to have been a fabrication and a heartless attempt to ruin a man’s life, she should go to jail for whatever period of time the man would have gone to jail for had her story ended up being true. False accusations of crimes must not ever go unpunished, especially accusations that could put away another person for a long time.
