The False Rape Strike Force
A new—what shall I call it?—online activism project has been inaugurated. It is called the False Rape Strike Force, and is the brainchild of Snark (of Remasculation)—in conjunction with the False Rape Society crew and, I am honored to say, myself! :)
The FRSF is what is quaintly termed an "attack blog", and the title is, I trust, explanatory. Certain people and entities must be sensitivity-trained on the subject of false rape accusation, and the profile of the issue must be raised in the mind of the world at large. So in the days and months ahead, the FRSF blog will publicize various "offenders" who may possibly benefit from the experience of worldwide web exposure. For that purpose we wish to recruit "soldiers" for e-mailing and forum-swarming campaigns and you, gentle reader, are invited to participate. ;)
I should scarcely need to add, that here is a chance to grow some political muscle. In fact, we've got that muscle already, as the outcome of the first FRSF project has demonstrated. The project, as you will see, was cancelled for thoughtfully considered reasons—but not without first making itself smartly felt! As Snark has written:
"On the positive side, this does actually show what level of force we can mobilise - considering he took the time to write to us asking us to stop."All right, here is the address. Get thee yonder and read all about it:
My own intro post, which is not half bad if I do say so, is HERE:
In conclusion, I think Snark's idea, that we should NOT set ourselves up in opposition to those advocating for rape victims, is politically very solid advice; such a dichotomy would ill serve us indeed! Still, if such activism as ours accomplishes anything in the long run, it would be (among other things) that rape victim advocates would feel obliged to "show their colors" on the subject of false accusation rather than passing over the issue in silence.
