    Sometimes, women were not lying but they were told or blackmailed to lie after coming out and telling someone that a powerful authority figure sexually assaulted them. Then they were given hush money or blackmailed to take it all back. So really, some of these men may not have been falsely accused.

      If you don‘t want to be a victim you actually have to fight for it and there are a lot of women who really enjoy the role of the victim and say they are for the me2-movement and this isn‘t helping the me2-movement either.
      (Actually you see this scenario with every type of person, men, women, black, white, asian, doesn‘t matter)

      But Trevor is absolutely right.

        Thank you Trevor. You're so right. I have personally experienced this. I found myself reversing the victim and perpetrators roles and was feeling "sorry" for men falsley accused. I do know of two cases like this, but it's true that they are in the minority. Their cases don't negate the Me Too movement. I'm checking myself from now on when looking at any victim/oppressor is issue.

            Rightwingers are good leaners and they learn victimhood from the masters themselves, the leftwingers

                True there is a chance the man accused maybe innocent and thats fare and that said this is not about a battle of the sexes it's about that percentage as Trevor explained it's a rediculous number of women who have been abused and men who honor and have grandmother's, wives , daughters, nieces ,grand daughters will feel the sense of protection not feeling sorry coz that is happening everyday and if you have not been affected thank God coz you may just have not been told.

                          Well Trevor is it true or not? I like how you don't follow up by admitting that yes...A woman can make a false accusation about you with NO proof and people have been taught to believe her no matter what and that even if the man denies it, he is still treated as guilty. As if he did something wrong.

                          Here is how I know you are a two faced liar...What about young men like Brian Banks and the rash of white women who have been publicly (and rightfully shamed) for trying to make false claims of rape against black men? I guess that does not matter. Or maybe it has nothing to do with women lying, but racism? Is that what is? That only racist white women lie about being raped?

                                I get sick of the hypocrisy in itself- of liberals being portrayed as embracing victimhood while the Right blusters about the religious oppression of Starbucks cups, the "punishment of success" posed by a potential return to a sane tax structure, the devastating effects it would have on mega-businesses, were they forced to offer their paeons a reasonable wage. I am tired of hearing about how the powerful are, if you ACTUALLY think about it, the TRUE victims, and I am sick of being referred to as "elite" because of where I live and how I think. All of this is whiny, perverse, and infantile- like a bad winner who cannot even enjoy his own success. Yes, the persecuted majority. I don't know if it arises from a guilty conscience, a vague fear of loss/deprivation mentality (typically a masculine characteristic), or what, really, causes victimhood to appear desirable as a characteristic, as a means to be heard- but I do know that I, for one, do not see myself as nor feel like a victim. I think that's a projection of the Right; I think that it is how THEY would feel, most of them, to admit they lacked control over some situation. A Liberal will see it as an injustice to be rectified, whereas a Conservative would rather chalk something up as a personal failure than admit he has no control over the situation- because that lack of control, that lack of power, means groundlessness, helplessness, victimhood. They are fighting like hell to keep control, and damn scared of losing it, but deprivation mentality is a boogeyman, and it is a part of the Fear that FDR warned us against. [cue trolls, I know.

                                  Trevor Noah is such an idiot. Trump is offering victimhood to those who least deserve it? What anout affirmative action? Oh, my amcestors were slaves so I deserve some compensation because apparently the economic opportunity never presented itself to us. Bullshit... victim mentality

                                                  My Father LITERALLY said to me "The White Christian Male is under attack" aaaaannnd proceeded to tell me what Women Really Want AFTER REPEAT... AFTER I told him in Explicit Detail about the sexual assault/harassment I've experienced... That was my attempt to try and Mansplane to him how VERY wrong he is. However, I'll surmise that if your own Daughter is detailing these personal encounters and you're still thinking you're the VICTIM in all this then at least I KNOW that change will likely NEVER happen for him... Sucks but that's reality...SMH.

                                                      My ex-wife accused me of rape once. She also accused her ex-boyfriend, whom she is now dating again, of rape as well. And her first ex-husband. A pattern I wish I had seen at the time.

                                                      So, while I would definitely say it isn't common, I would never say it doesn't happen. I know from experience. Because of her, I don't date or want another relationship. But this isn't the norm.

                                                        Good Lord what hypocrisy...the left literally GLORIFIES victimhood every single day. How many fake hate crimes have we seen in the past year? Constantly talking about "oppression" and racism where it doesnt exist. Absolutely degenerate hypocrisy from this shameful propagandist.

                                                          1) Trevor just complained about the right wing victimizing men, and you just blame the left ?

                                                          2) Fake hate crimes ? Fake news regarding anything is easily believable when a lot of real news about it is being generated. Count the number of the real hate crimes which have occured. I am not even talking about the state sponsored ones.

                                                          Indeed, you are either a fool, or a hypocrite.

It will make the criminal look like he's the victim and make the victim look like he's the criminal. If you aren't careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing. 

                                                                            If you aren't careful, because I've seen some of you caught in that bag, you run away hating yourself and loving the man — while you're catching hell from the man. You let the man maneuver you into thinking that it's wrong to fight him when he's fighting you. He's fighting you in the morning, fighting you in the noon, fighting you at night and fighting you all in between, and you still think it's wrong to fight him back. Why? The press. The newspapers make you look wrong."  - Malcolm X
