Just in case any dudebros are unclear on what this means: it means that your buddy who totally just had some bitch trying to ruin his life by accusing him of rape…almost certainly actually did rape her.  

Just keep that in mind.

Yeah man, imagine that, bitches don’t be lying.

Can we put this into context? It means that 99.4% of rape allegations are true

It means that 99.4% of rape allegations are true.

SIGNAL BOOST ALSO GET THIS INTO PEOPLES HEADS

and that’s just the number of rapes that get talked about enough to become “allegations”

#Keep that in mind #Next time you want to reblog #Rape apologist bullshit

No, what this this report actually says is that 0.6% of rape allegations are proven to be false, and while it’s unlikely there is a significant number more, this is not, by any means, a definitive number.

Much in the same way it is difficult to prosecute rape based on (typically) a staggering lack of evidence (I’m sure someone has a stat handy for how many accused rapists go free), it is just as difficult, if not more so, to prove, legally, that someone is lying.

I’d be much more interesting in seeing how many cases there are, not how many prosecutions there are.

The author of this article needs to learn basic statistical analysis imho.
