Shortly after the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, actress and activist Alyssa Milano went on MSNBC to rant about how sexual abuse has been institutionalized in the United States. Citing bogus statistics and demonstrating incredible hypocrisy in her support for real sex abusers like Bill Clinton, Alyssa Milano might just have made the worst #FeministFail yet.
Hello everyone this is My 2 Cents. It’s been awhile now since the Kavanaugh hearings, but after finding this tv segment I couldn’t help but go after it. Female celebrities are pretty much the only exception to the feminists are fat and ugly rule, and after seeing this, Alyssa Milano just might be the most hypocritical and worst of them all. No need to bore you with the details up front though. Let’s get into it.
Yeah and why the heck was she there anyways. That room was pretty crowded and what specifically qualified Milano for being at that hearing other than that she’s an outspoken feminist celebrity?
Yeah, and I’d say Trump was entirely reasonable. Before we knew anything about Christine Blasey Ford, he appropriately said let’s listen to what she has to say, while still granting Brett Kavanaugh the presumption of innocence and the opportunity to defend himself. If Dr. Ford had presented credible evidence to show that her accusations were truthful, I firmly believe President Trump would have acknowledged as such just like I would have. However, instead, Dr. Ford completely discredited herself and conclusively demonstrated that she was either lying or suffering from some sort of false memory disorder. In either case, it’s not that insane to think you’ll get criticized after demonstrating you’re full of crap.
And so am I that idiots like you keep defending obviously false accusations of rape, while speaking out in favor of real sexual predators like former President Bill Clinton. Don’t think we’ve forgotten you’re now deleted tweet Milano.
Then why is it that you don’t seem to care so much about men like Bill Clinton who I already mentioned, Corey Booker who admitted in his own book to trying to grab a woman’s breast, Keith Ellison credibly accused of abuse, Justin Trudeau accused of groping a female reporter, and more recently, Michael Avenatti who has had a restraining order filed against him. You talk a big game about how sexual assault has been institutionalized, even persisting in accusing men like Kavanaugh after their accusers are discredited, but you turn a blind eye when men on your political side of the aisle are credibly accused. Do you not see the hypocrisy in your refusal to call out real abusers just because they’re feminist allies? Are you really an advocate of women, or just your own agenda?
Yeah, and if you say stupid crap that is demonstrated to be false, you’re gonna get mocked. Grow up.
Devastating that a man who passed 7 FBI background checks and had no credible accusations against him was confirmed, but not devastating that credibly accused progressives continue to hold office huh?
And he’s absolutely right. It’s extremely scary to be a young man when you know that a mere accusation, devoid of any supporting evidence can be used to have you fired from your job, criminally charged, and forced to pay legal fees that leave you broke for decades to come. It’s even happening to boys as young as 13 years old, like Keith Bailey of Colorado Springs.
Alright there are a few things that should be noted about this 1 in 6 women are raped in their lifetime claim. The organization RAINN, the rape, abuse, and incest national network, is the organization making this claim. If you go to their website, the only source they cite in favor of this, is one study conducted in 1996 under a department of justice grant by the National Violence Against Women Survey. Numerous researchers, including Bonnie Fischer at the University of Cincinnati, have noted that other studies, conducted contemporaneously, found radically different results, some finding that rape occurred ten times less than the 1 in 6 estimate. In particular, Fischer notes that broadening the definition of rape to include so called “psychological coercion” beyond actual force gave researchers more wiggle room to inflate the number of rapes that a given survey produced. Beyond that, researchers on all sides agree that the wording of questions within surveys leads to drastically higher or lower results depending on specifically what the participants were asked. Putting it in Fischer’s own words, “The challenges are especially daunting when attempting to discern when, in an intimate encounter, a sexual advance crosses the line from imprudence to criminal behavior” (Fischer, 2004, p. 10).
But putting those nuances aside, RAINN itself admits that it primarily relies on the Bureau of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey for current statistics about sexual assault. This is relevant because the National Crime Victimization Survey differentiates between rape and sexual assault in its statistics the latter’s definition being far broader. Keeping all of that in mind, the National Crime Victimization Survey estimated that there were 188,380 rapes AND SEXUAL ASSAULTS, not just rapes, committed against women AND MEN in the year 2010. Now, even ignoring the fact that that statistic did not differentiate between rape and sexual assault and included men as well as women, that would mean that assuming there are about 150,000,000 women in the United States, only about 0.1 percent of those women experienced sexual assault over the course of the year.
I say all this not because I’m claiming I can definitely refute the findings of the 1996 study to which RAINN refers. I’m saying only that acting like it’s a commonly accepted fact amongst researchers that 1 in 6 women are raped is misleading to say the least.
(Raucous laughter) Okay, this one is even worse than the 1 in 6 figure. What exactly is the source for the claim that only 2% of rape reports are false? Author Wendy McElroy of the Independent Institute asked that question and in her 2006 article, reported,
“Several years ago, I tried to track down the origin of this much-cited stat. The first instance I found of the figure was in Susan Brownmiller’s book on sexual assault entitled “Against Our Will” (1975). Brownmiller claimed that false accusations in New York City had dropped to 2 percent after police departments began using policewomen to interview alleged victims.
Elsewhere, the two percent figure appears without citation or with only a vague attribution to “FBI” sources. Although the figure shows up in legislation such as the Violence Against Women Act, legal scholar Michelle Anderson of Villanova University Law School reported in 2004, “no study has ever been published which sets forth an evidentiary basis for the two percent false rape complaint thesis.”
In short, there is no reason to credit that figure” (McElroy, 2006, para. 22).
In fact, a study conducted by Eugene Kanin at the University of Purdue found that 41% of all reported rapes are false. In any case, according to the FBI, in approximately 25% of sexual assault cases, DNA evidence proves that the primary suspect is not guilty, which means that it can’t be the case that only 2% of rape reports are false.
As I just demonstrated, that’s garbage. False accusations are quite common. But that being said, even if they weren’t, is it any less despicable when women do falsely report? Do you think women who falsely accuse men and destroy their reputations as well as empty their wallets with legal fees deserve to criminally charged? My guess is you don’t. You don’t care if innocent men are thrown under the bus so long as it serves your feminist agenda.
Um, as I mentioned before, 13-year-old boys getting falsely accused and none the less arrested. In your own words, “Come on.”
Watch out folks, President Trump and Lindsey Graham are using voodoo magic to make everyone stupid. Never mind that facts are against you Alyssa. It must be voodoo magic.
I couldn’t agree more Alyssa. Then why have you expressed your love for actual rapists like Bill Clinton! You hypocrite.
Says the female millionaire actress broadcasting her views to the entire nation on national tv in a studio that undoubtedly has armed security. Don’t lecture us about equality and security Miss Milano.
Idiots like Alyssa Milano can grandstand about how women are oppressed, we live in a rape culture, and whatever else they’ve got on their agenda, but the facts always prove them to be 1. Wrong in their assertions, 2. Privileged by the media such that their claims are broadcast far and wide with opposition being silenced, and 3. Supporters of actual rapists because those people are “feminist allies”.
There are a lot of feminist fails out there. But when it comes to people like Alyssa Milano who are propping up false rape accusations against innocent men while defending actual rapists just to get their way, I mean come on.
And that is My 2 Cents. Take it for what it’s worth.
