4. Who knows where she got that stat
Speaking as a man who got accused of that, and got my daughter to testify (in private) that it was untrue, then took over my divorce case and HAMMERED THE FUCKING ASSHOLES WHO RECKLESSLY MADE THE CHARGE and nailed the lawyer who allowed that charge to be made, and got her entire fee refunded to me for her incompetent injury of my daughter, I am so sick of this shit.

Every false accusation means the real ones get off more easily. And the very idea that only 3 percent of all accusations are untrue is so moronic as to not be worth refuting. Women use that accusation as the nuclear option, and they do it all the time. Anyone who thinks 97 percent of accusations of child molestations in divorce court are true is a fucking piece of moron shit.

5. Amen
I actually read a list of suggested actions for women who are anticipating a custody battle. One section was how to establish a track record for molestation accusations and TROs (call 911 a lot, that sort of thing).

You're exactly right that it's the nuclear option. In too many cases, the first side to claim abuse wins.

8. WHOA!

Speaking as a woman who was molested at age 7 by an Uncle - I find this completely offensive. I wasn't believed FOR YEARS! I think you have to take what a child says as truth until you prove it wrong. I wasn't believed and said Uncle went on to molest way too many other girls in my family.

Doctor, you've got to help me. My brother thinks he's a chicken. We don't tell him because we need the eggs.

heres something very disturbing, kids who have been molested by thier moms are 3 times more likely to not tell anyone.
All forms of child abuse are sickening,mental,physical,sexual

7. Sorry, bullshit in my opinion
So this means that if you were to ask 100% of all men whether they molested their kids, 97% would be lying?

I can't buy that. I can buy that WAY more kids are molested by adults than is generally known. Probably in the 2-5% range--but that includes all adults, not just a given child's male genetic donor.

12. Relevant article
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A43631-20...

Note that this girl was convicted in court of making false allegations . . . until her mother found a video of him molesting her, and a DNA test proved that he had gotten her pregnant.
