Firstly, that's not what I asked. You implied that men were at as much risk of being falsely accused of sexual harassment and/or rape as women were of actually having those crimes happen to them. Regardless of those high-profile examples you cited, do you have any proof that this is something happening in wider society?

Secondly, you do understand that "unproven accusation" doesn't automatically equate to "false accusation", right?

on the same metric, how do you actually determine the risk of being falsly accused is not just as high as the one of actually being raped? a rape accusation does not correspond to an actual rape until it's proven, right?

 

Basically what I'm saying is you're correctly calling him out on on equating one "risk" to the other, but it goes both ways. Someone added in a comment women had a 1/5 chance to get raped and I fail to see how that's any more valid than his false rape accusation argument. 

I never claimed that to begin with, someone else made an obvious hyperbole to make a point and Im pretty sure that other person also dosent believe that such risk are at the same level.
