The rape victims who aren’t recognised


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Just being accused of rape is enough to end any prospects a man has in life. Therefore we should allow men accused of rape to remain anonymous. The feminist argument against this is that he may have done this before, and by being accused, will allow previous victims to give evidence. Or perhaps women from his past with an axe to grind?

    But of course men when accused by a serial accuser could use the same argument that previous victims of this woman’s lies do not know that she is ruining another man’s life and therefore do not have the opportunity to come forward and give evidence. Why is it that women who make deliberate false claims seldom get the prison sentence they deserve?

    Another example of one rule for men and another for women.

    • Thanks for this. Anonymity for rape suspects until and unless convicted is in our public consultation document. Such a policy was in the coalition agreement, but predictably later ditched (likewise David Cameron’s pre-election pledges to fathers’ rights groups).
