Men are 27500 times more likely to be raped by a woman than to be falsely accused of raping a woman

The title of this mega quick links post is not a misprint, for those who are wondering.  Other stats: Men are 32 times more likely to be struck by lightning than to be falsely accused of rape. (Men are already 4 times more likely than women to be struck by lightning, regardless of circumstances [third item].)  Men are also 4.5 times more likely to match all but one white ball and match the Powerball in the lottery (which nets $10000.00) than to be falsely accused of raping women.  So, we as male allies must confront the men's rights activists and their doublespeak when it comes to sexual assault.
