I don’t know why people keep repeating the line about false accusations against “husbands, brothers, and sons.” I just counted, and I know of 8 cases of false accusations of sexual misdeeds. When I say I know, I don’t mean I read or heard about it. I know these people and these situations extremely well.
Four involved men and four were against women. Seven out of eight started in the workplace. One started as a custody battle and ended with a denial of Full Professorship and a suspension. All 8 accusations were false and utterly ludicrous. Five of the accused are immigrants, which doesn’t necessarily mean anything given my field of work. All were in academia at the time of the accusations.
Eight. I think it’s a lot especially since I’m not sociable and don’t even know that many people. Men are women were affected in equal numbers. This is not a gender or race issue.
