Today hasn’t been such a great day for feminism. Now that Rolling Stone’s heavily touted article purportedly exposing a gang rape at UVA has been shot full of holes, Our Ladies of the Perpetually Outraged are beside themselves looking for ways to keep the dubious rape narrative alive.

One of these angry gals is the charming Melissa McEwan, who, according to her Twitter bio, is “proprietor of Shakesville, a progressive feminist blog and a community of teaspoon-wielding badasses who expect more.” Apparently one of the things she doesn’t expect is for rape accusers to be completely honest:


Actually, the point is that when it comes to accusing someone else of rape — of any crime — facts are pretty darn important. Needless to say, McEwan’s logic didn’t go over terribly well with people who aren’t complete idiots:

It’s truly an art.

Melissa’s so busy dismissing skeptics of a shady story, does she realize the actual harm she’s causing?

Absolutely. But McEwan’s far more upset about being confronted with her own flaming stupidity:

Because everyone who disagrees with her is a “rape apologist.” Please.

Sure seems that way, doesn’t it?

Yeah, well …


Oh, snap.

Maybe when McEwan’s finished sputtering, she can take some time to ponder this:

Editor’s note: This post has been updated with additional tweets.


Update: It appears that McEwan has deleted her entire Twitter account. DLTDHYOTWO, Melissa.

            Not defending the lie but rape is NOT about beauty. If is was evil people would not be raping 80 year old women and infant girls. Not funny people.

    Once again, I have to ask for a ruling on [email protected] [email protected] About 15 years ago I was lectured for months on end, from men AND women on the left. The rule then was:

    “As long as the man is able to do his job, anything he does in private is his personal life and none of my bidness.”

    Has something changed since Juanita Broderick?

    • disqus_v3SHzvCspj


    • marylamb72

      How may even know who she is? I do. She accused Bill Clinton of raping her and got 7 leadins in the liberal media in a week. 3 ANONOMOUS women accused Cain of ambiguous sexual harassment and it got over FIFTY leadins in week. Liberals only care about the abuse of women if it can help THEIR AGENDA.

      • TugboatPhil

        Did you notice how fast that story went away when Cain stepped down?

        • marylamb72

          Of course, that was the whole point of their smear campaign. People keep saying we need to take the money out of politics with campaign reform. I believe it would be much more productive if we could take the stupid out of voters. Informed voters don’t NEED to be protected from advertising.

  • Joachim vzM

    “I can’t state this more emphatically: If Jackie’s story is partially or wholly untrue, it doesn’t validate the reasons for disbelieving her.”

    Usually I have my snark ready for crap like this. I…actually had to sit for a second to wrap my head around the sheer bullheadedness of this.

    In what world, exactly, is it good in any way, shape, or form to believe something that is false, especially as it pertains to something as grave as a rape?

    • BlahBlah


    • Aitch748 the Deplorable

      In other words: “Just because she’s likely lying doesn’t give you an excuse to not believe her, you white-privileged rape-apologist, you. Believe the narrative! As Eleanor Holmes Norton says, it doesn’t matter what actually happened! Your eyes and ears are LYING!!!”

      Is there anyone left who isn’t a leftist who takes these “feminists” seriously anymore?

      • JeffyTheQuick

        Likely or fully lying…

        The only thing I can imagine worse that her getting a case of dynamite and dropping them in the hole at 20 second intervals to dig that hole deeper.

      Like you, I also had the snark machine fired up, but then decided it would be a waste of energy and ammunition to fire back at that feminist butthead. Her idiocy speaks for itself.

    • Zachary Isom

      I think her point was that people were not believing the story before they had any evidence that it was untrue. But then she just kept digging, and digging, and digging, and now she is in china, took two steps to the left, and started over.

  • QueenB

    Congratulations Melissa McIdiot… have assisted in making it that much harder for the next woman who is actually raped to be believed.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      Same thought crossed my mind. Defending a woman whose story is not confirmed and is found to be full of holes, does soooooo much harm to the credibility of actual rape victims.

      • Stephen K

        The only thing the feminist social justice warriors care about is their Cause, which is to have everything they say be accepted at face value as absolute, irrefutable TRVTH, facts, evidence and “patriarchical” concepts such as trials, due process and the ability to confront and question your accusers be damned.

        If this causes innocent people of the “privileged” class to maybe serve decades in prison for crimes they didn’t commit; they deserve to be in prison anyway on account of said “privilege”, and they serve as useful warnings to the rest of us rubes to never cross or doubt the social justice warriors, on the pain of maybe winding up with numbers on our backs ourselves.

        And if this does harm to actual victims of rape, well, you know what they say about omelets and eggs.

    Major mind blowing. So, even if it isn’t true doesn’t mean that you still shouldn’t believe it. Surely, there is logic in there somewhere. I guess you have to have one of those “nuance decoder rings” to decipher it.

      • TugboatPhil

        “….but you have invested about 7.5%….”

        You misspelled “flushed away.”

        • TomJB


      • Robert P. Maroney

        It’s actually 15%. Companies know they have to pay that 7.5% so that’s figured into your salary. They may determine your position at 100k, but they subtract what they pay for benefits and taxes, leaving you with the remainder which is your salary. So you would be making 7.5% more if they didn’t pay into it.

        • Ferrari fan

          just like products might actually be cheaper if corporations didn’t have to pay taxes. They just figure the taxes they are paying into the price of their products and pass it on to the consumer.

  • Gretz

    This is the standard of feminism. See also, Amanda Marcoot, (insert any random feminist), Lena Dunham, (insert any random hollywood feminist).

    … and this is why we don’t take feminists seriously. Most importantly, because its a sexist, bigoted, thinly disguised hate organization that wants to incarcerate and murder men with impunity, and has no concepts of math, due process, facts, logic, rules of evidence, or even basic science. Or even basic respect for other human beings.

    • dee131

      Actually, this is the exact reason we need to take these shrieking crones seriously.

      Every time a smug leftist finds a cause to “champion”, there is a very real possibility that an innocent person will end up paying the price.

      • Rebecca Jones Imre

        Very good point. I wonder just how many innocent people have suffered at the hands of these “causes.” If the UVA case had gone the other way, several young men might have been added to that roll.

    • Jessica Tyberghein

      Jealousy maybe? These trolls cant possibly find a man who would want their overbearing selves so they join the feminist movement b/c ya know why not? They aren’t taught that being sweet to someone might actually get them farther than screaming and spewing vitriol everywhere they go.

    • Ferrari fan

      because in reality, rape isn’t about sex, it’s about power. power over the person. you leave them helpless and do as you please to them. most rapists are sick in the head.

  • mrspinky85

          • TugboatPhil

            When I was in an Artillery unit at Ft Sill, I watched a guy come through morning chow line and start in on the cook that was frying eggs. Cookie took about 30 seconds of it, hopped across the tray rail and whipped the guy’s arse.

            In the following 21 years of my enlistments I never bad mouthed chow directly to a cook. I’ve since learned my mom’s dad was a cook/machine gunner in France during WWI.

          • Stephen K

          • LucienCordier

            God bless cooks. I only spent 6 years in the military between the USMC Reserve and the US Army, but I ate in mess halls/chow halls/dining facilities of the Marines, Navy, Army and Air Force. None was gourmet, some was better than others, but only one time did I ever have a truly bad meal (liver and onions). Each and every time I was grateful for that hot chow, never more so than after a few days in the field eating Cs to get a few mermite cans full of hot spaghetti and garlic bread. As a broke single young buck sergeant living off post, sometimes my only hot meal was a three egg omelet all-the-way and some fried potatoes. I can only imagine what it would mean to troops coming back from missions in a combat zone. No complaints here.

            When he started whining about being hungry and was bored watching everybody eat, I whacked him with a toaster.

    “If the threshold for reporting on rape is 100% verifiable facts, there’s

    Um, no crazy lady.

    But if you get your way and we can convict even with 100% provable lies; then we’re going to jail a lot of innocent people.

    Should we do this with all crimes? Anyone accused must be guilty regardless of any facts or evidence? Or only rape claims should get this treatment?

    I’m thinking guilty even if proven innocent is a form of “justice” most would consider a bit totalitarian and oppressive… just my view, I could be wrong here.

    “Despite hysterical propaganda about our “rape culture,” the majority of campus incidents being carelessly described as sexual assault are not felonious rape (involving force or drugs) but oafish hookup melodramas, arising from mixed signals and imprudence on both sides.” -Camille Paglia, new interview,

    I can’t state this more emphatically: If Jackie’s story is partially or wholly untrue, it doesn’t validate the reasons for disbelieving her.

    Yeah! And besides, even if “Jackie” wasn’t rape-raped, I’m sure all the young budding misogyinistic testosterone-addict frat boys were gang-raping her telepathically!!!! So, there’s that!!! You tell em, Melissa!!!!

  • DEPLORABLEkarmafordems

    There is something that bothers me about “Jackie”. The article states she graduated at the top of her class and wanted to become a doctor. She wanted to go to an Ivy League school but her parents couldn’t afford it. She entered UVA sight unseen, never once visiting the school prior to her application.
    She was pissed. Somewhere, something went wrong. She claims she was pushed into and crashed a glass table during the rape, but her roommate saw no injuries after the “brutal” rape.
    I see histrionics at play here. This woman is clearly angry at someone.
    There was a person who dragged me into a false rape claim as a witness. She called me, said she was raped, and I picked her up and brought her to the police station. Her claim was fantastical. She was extremely personality disordered. I was subpoenaed as a witness, but when I met with the DA I advised him I would not be helpful to her side. Police investigations continued, but, although a sexual encounter had taken place, it did not occur as she stated….she was the seducer. I knew it just simply couldn’t have happened as she stated. However, she railroaded this man, who was at best mildly intellectually challenged, and he served jail time and now must register as a sex offender.
    It angers me that this goes on. It is true that these bitter feminists would prefer to narrate that all men are bad, that all sexual encounters are truthful only toward the woman’s side. I know that is not the case. Facts are in order. If a man rapes a woman, the woman should ensure that there is justice for the act of brutality against her. Rape is not always by a man, but all rape is a crime. It’s just that facts matter

    • mrspinky85

      Who protects men? As a wife, mother, daughter and sister of good men this angers me. Good men can be railroaded based on women who don’t know what they want.

      Being a strong empowered female never should be at the expense of a man.

    Point The First- A lie, if it forwards the Holy Narrative, is always MORE true than any fact. Pointing out a fact that contradicts the Holy Narrative is a sin!

    Point the Second- Any woman, or other Protected Class, that makes any statement, especially if it is false, will always be protected from the Unholy Truth by calling the wielders of the Unholy Truth all manner of ‘Ist’: Racist, Sexist, etc.

    Point the Third- A person accused of rape who didn’t actually do it ( no man is ever falsely accused because all men are inherently rapists, except gay men who rape boys because see Protected Class clause ) is still guilty and, as such, cannot be a victim, especially if he is damaged or injured.

  • JR48

    As a female who fully appreciates that rape is a serious issue, especially on college campuses, I’m appalled at this woman’s BS. LYING about rape, essentially crying wolf, is what sets back supporting women. You not only have to be honest, but scrupulously honest so that when a woman uses that word then she is believed. Also to protect honest men from being persecuted. And yes, the latter matters.

    Btw, your first clue that she was full of it is that she’s talking to RS and not merely the cops. You draw a straight line from the crime scene to the police to the hospital to gather evidence to court where you put that SOB in jail. You do it so that you get justice, and you do it to protect other women from a predator.

    What you don’t do is create a huge BS story, while potentially jailed innocent people becasue you want to draw attention to the subject while shutting down frat houses. IT MATTERS. And no, they are not automatically guilty of anything because they belong to frats.

  • Richard Jefferies

    Lemme regale dear reader with a tale of woe. When I was about six months from retiring from the Navy I was working my duty day after hours at the message center when the CDO comes in and tells me there has been a rape in the restricted barracks. So I start processing the message traffic. Over the next three to four hours I saw a lot of things unfold. Another instructor friend of mine was the SAVI (sexual assault and violence intervention) coordinator. She was the first person to see to the victims every need.

    The accused was immediately arrested and placed into custody. He had to call his wife and tell her that he wouldn’t be coming home because he was accused of rape. The base bent over backward to accommodate her and crucify him. That is, until after 24 hours when NCIS was investigating her story she admitted that she had lied to get out of the restricted barracks. She had been awarded restriction for theft. I don’t know if she was ever charged, it was out of my hands at that point and she was transferred off station. What I do know is that a sailor with a professional record was immediately assumed guilty. His wife, whether she wanted to believe him or not was no doubt wracked with conflicting emotions over the ordeal until he was finally cleared of any wrong doing.

    The idea that women are somehow incapable of such heinous acts as lying about rape is as naive as thinking no man would rape a woman. Yet, when it comes to rape in 2014, it is like being accused of child molestation, it is guilty until proven innocent.
