Malkin: ‘Believe Women’ Is Perilous Baloney

The idea that all women and girls must be telling the truth at all times about sexual assault allegations because they “have nothing to gain” is perilously detached from reality.


Michelle Malkin: I have a message for virtue-signaling men who’ve rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion.

Stuff it.

Your blanket “Believe Women” bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul.

A certain class of never Trump-harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s memory-addled partisan accuser Christine Blasey Ford — who cannot recall the year she was allegedly traumatized, where it happened, who threw the party that paralyzed her for nearly four decades, how many were in attendance during her claimed assault, how she got there or how she left.

No matter! Bush campaign hack-turned-ABC News analyst Matthew Dowd doesn’t need any data to analyze. “Enough with the ‘he said, she said'” storyline,” he declared this week. “If this is he said, she said, then let’s believe the she in these scenarios. She has nothing to gain, and everything to lose. For 250 years we have believed the he in these scenarios. Enough is enough.”

Clinton/Kerry flack Peter Daou echoed the unthinking sentiment: “To everyone on the right who says I’m being selective, I BELIEVE WOMEN whether the accused is a Republican or Democrat. And yes, that includes all the names you’re throwing at me. My default in these situations is to BELIEVE WOMEN.”

Ivy League poobah Simon Hedlin asserted: “Accusers go public not because of any supposed benefits but despite the immense costs.” He argued: “When somebody is credibly accused of sexual misconduct, the default should be to believe the accuser.”

That is a dumb and dangerous default. The costly toll of “believing women,” instead of believing evidence, can be seen in the hundreds and hundreds of cases recorded by the University of Michigan Law School’s National Registry of Exonerations involving innocent men falsely accused of rape and rape/murders.  more here

  1. “I will not testify on a boat,
    I will not testify with a goat.
    I will not testify here nor there.
    I will not testify anywhere.
    I will not testify first nor last.
    I will not testify slow nor fast.
    There’s nothing more for me to say.
    I can’t remember, anyway.”

    – Dr.Seuss-Ford”

  2. Remember when Donald Trump sat there during the white house correspondent’s dinner and took that abuse?
    Next thing you know…he’s president!
    You had better believe he is absorbing all of this nonsense.
    It’s all going to come crashing down on “slick willie” and hitlery soon!

  3. “I believer because she’s telling the truth.”
    How about, I believe him because he’s telling the truth? You are an idiot, totally detached from reality. I ask you to demand that the the FBI investigate you and your dealings with Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein. Just to clear matters up.

  4. why would anyone believe a woman?
    oh yes, sweetie … Santa Claus is real
    the Easter Bunny is real
    the Tooth Fairy is real
    I think I have to wash my hair that night
    my love for you is real
    there’s no one else but you

    …. yeah, women always tell the truth … right before they stab you in the heart … & smile

    not that I (or any other male) have had any first-hand experience

  5. From Malkin’s article:

    …Savino,…Turvey, and…Mares detail the myriad “prosocial” and “antisocial” lies people tell in their textbook, “False Allegations: Investigative and Forensic Issues in Fraudulent Reports of Crime.”

    “Antisocial” lies involve selfish motives to “further a personal agenda at some cost to others,” including “self-deception and rationalization to protect or boost self-esteem;” “enhance status or perception in the eyes of others;” “garner sympathy;” “avoid social stigma;” “conceal inadequacy, error, and culpability;” “avoid consequence;” and for “personal and/or material gain.”

    As for Easy Chrissie:
    “further personal agenda” – CHECK
    “cost to others” – CHECK
    “enhance status in eyes of others” – CHECK
    “material gainn” – CHECK (What’s that GoFundMe up to now?)

  6. No go. Gillibrand’s email is “not formatted properly.” She is not in touch with her deplorable, dreg constituents. I got her email from the Congressional Directory?

  7. Alan Dershowitz said today, “Say what? Do women have some truth-telling gene, different from the lying gene men are stuck with?”

    (That’s actually a paraphrase. Ole Alan doesn’t talk like that. ….smile..)
    …..Lady in Red

  8. Just because, sometimes, I’m a stickler for really accurate truth, here’s the quote:

    “You never met her. You don’t know anything about her,” he said. “Are women born with a special gene for telling the truth, and men with a special gene for lying?” …..Lady in Red

  9. Women don’t lie.

    Blacks can’t be racist.

    Communists have good intentions.

    Islam is a religion of peace.

    Illegal aliens come here for love.

    Democrats care about the poor.

    Why can’t we all get along?

  10. … in the bigger context, if we allow such simple innuendo to stand we no longer acknowledge anything remotely resembling due process of law & acquiesce to simple mob rule (happily controlled by the democrat socialist media)

    it’s what they want to happen …. don’t give in to it

  11. Tawana Brawley never lied.
    Crystal from the Duke Lacrosse case never lied.
    The Columbia Mattress slut never lied
    The Rolling Stones broad never lied.
    Hillary Clinton never lied.
    Dick Blumenthal, Vietnam vet, never lied
    Bill Clinton never lied
    Joe Biden never lied.
    Ted “The liar of the Senate” Kennedy, never lied
    I could go on, but I need a drink.

  12. I don’t lie. I got myself a drink.
    But one more for now, Cory Booker never lied. He admitted that T-Bone never existed and he really didn’t drive from New Jersey to Hawaii. And Obama’s and Pelosi’s lies will require a large book.

  13. I’ve got two stories where I know the people involved. One was back when I was in HS. A girl had sex with a boy once, they both were drunk at a party. She got pregnant and instead of admitting she got drunk and made a mistake she claimed he raped her. He got 10 years in prison after being convicted. During his time in prison she laughed about it all the time and said she made the bastard pay for telling her he wanted the baby tested after it was born to prove it was his. He had good reason to do so, she was a total slut and by her own admission would screw anything with a dick between his legs.
    Several people wanted to testify about how she had been all over him all night and was the one who talked him into walking off into the woods, but were not allowed in court. Same thing for those who she told why she was crying rape before he went to trial. Several times they tried to get him a new trial when practically the entire town had heard her brag how the bastard was rotting in jail and that’s what he deserved for calling her a slut by claiming the baby wasn’t his. He ended up serving 8 years of his 10 year sentence and became a lifelong sex offender for being stupid and screwing a slut when he was drunk.

    Second story is a neighbor who was raped when she was 16 by a 28 year old man who was a friend of the family. He wasn’t convicted because she couldn’t stand to testify in a court room in front of him. He walked out of the courtroom a free man. 40 years later and she still can tell you the date, time, what she was wearing, what he was wearing and every detail of the rape down to how he smelled and what he said before, during and after.

    All women should not be believed and many women never got justice because they couldn’t stand testifying while looking at the man who raped them.

    This bitch like the bitch in my first story should be thrown in jail for not only being lying bitches but because what they have done is like spitting in the face of true victims of rape.

  14. This is why men don’t want to work with women any more, or even be left alone with them for any length of time. I don’t blame them.

  15. Too many false memories. A woman may believe something happened but it didn’t.
    Also, women cheat on their husbands all the time. Isn’t that lying?

  16. “Nothing to gain”
    I see nothing to gain by being a bitch, however, it seems many woman love to be something they’ll gain nothing from.

  17. Repressed/ Recovered memories are a joke especially in sexual assault situations. look at the work of Dr Elizabeth Loftus

  18. Michell has been THE BEST INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER in the world for 25 years. The reason she no longer works for the PRESS (LSM) IS SHE IS HONEST! She reports FACTS, provable, verifiable FACTS. The only “news reporter” who has been close to Michell the last 40 years is the MD’s son from Philly (BTW Michell lived there years ago); but he tell antiAmerica lies as foten as the truth. Michell always tell the truth.
    The other “reporters/analysts” almost always lie!

  19. Pitting the (two!) sexes against one another is a game for losers. Real people have loved ones of the opposite sex and get furious at seeing them framed as some sort of evil enemy. I cannot believe this is going to work out well for the donkeys, but the elephants seem bent on responding too stupidly to give people a place to go. The Democrats are destroying themselves, but the Republicans keep getting in their way. Can they not take Napoleon’s advice?
