Woman Pretends to be a Man. Gets Accused of Rape...
False accusations of rape are commonly found in liberal echo chambers of lies (see JUSTICE: Woman Falsely Accuses Man of Rape. Goes to Jail and ‘Mattress Girl’ Who Falsely Claimed “Rape” Makes… Sex Tape?). You're a man. You touched me. That's rape. I scream about it. I'm hailed as brave. I start a "movement" to promote woman's rights. Lather, rinse, repeat. But lather with blue hair dye, that's a must.
Unfounded accusations of rape can ruin a man's life. Lucky for this man, he was a woman. Confused yet? You're transphobic. But just read. This BBC story is centered around Pili Hussein, who dressed like a man in order to obtain a job mining rare stones.
"Women were not allowed in the mining area, so I entered bravely like a man, like a strong person. You take big trousers, you cut them into shorts and you appear like a man. That's what I did."
To complete the transformation, she also changed her name.
"I was called Uncle Hussein, I didn't tell anyone my actual name was Pili. Even today if you come to the camp you ask for me by that name, Uncle Hussein."
So far, so good. Sounds like a 1950's comedy. Switch the gender, get a job. Because all that patriarchy. Except the plot twist wasn't a comical reveal of Pili's lack of a penis...
And her cover was so convincing that it took an extraordinary set of circumstances for her true identity to finally be revealed. A local woman had reported that she'd been raped by some of the miners and Pili was arrested as a suspect.
"When the police came, the men who did the rape said: 'This is the man who did it,' and I was taken to the police station," Pili says.
She asked the police to find a woman to physically examine her, to prove that she couldn't be responsible, and was soon released. But even after that her fellow miners found it hard to believe they had been duped for so long.
Two things here: the rape accuser said Pili, the woman who has no penis, was "the one who did it." Which means, as in America, often the rape accuser is full of:
If you're going to accuse a man of rape, at least do it properly. Accuse an actual man. Don't just assume gender, people. You've got to ask nowadays. Have YOU LEARNED NOTHING?
Second thing: now this rape accuser has been exposed as a fraud, what do you think will happen to her if, say, she's actually raped by an actual man? Not good things. Because what the accuser did here was cry bearded lady. When someone makes false rape accusations, then actual rape accusations are always questioned. Which always harms the real victims of rape.
So the lesson here is two fold: it's not always a jolly good time to be a man, as a fellow lady might accuse you of rape. And two, don't lie about rape. Sad that such statements need repeating, but here we are.
