Quoting Quiverfull: Women Report More False Than True Rape Incidents?

Some of the same infuriating rape culture thinking that Matt Walsh promotes..

by Matt Walsh at The Matt Walsh Blog - False Rape Accusations Are Just as Evil as Rape ItselfWhile Matt is not addressing the recently revealed allegations that Bob Jones University officials covered up sexual abuse cases on campus, he is sounding off on the recent story in Rolling Stone magazine about rape on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.
