Which crime is worse: rape or falsely accusing a person of rape?
If you are the one falsely accused I’m sure that would be worse.
I'm guessing the people who said false accusations are worse haven't been raped.
Most likely. But I'd also guess the people who said rape have never been falsely accused of rape.
Rape is worse but false accusations are terrible and both should result in jail time. Lifetime for rape and a few months-few years for false accusation.
Well it varies case to case, but I feel like an accuser should get an equal sentence that the person they accused would have gotten. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of rape resulting in a life sentence, unless it resulted in the person dying
Appreciate the input, mud
False accusations are so very rare. Rape traumatizes the victim for a lifetime.
It’s hard to say how rare they are. False accusations traumatize the victim for life as well, while also causing people to be more skeptical of victims who were actually raped. I think false accusations are slightly worse, but obviously both crimes are awful
False accusations often result in jail time. And almost always end up in court with ridiculous lawyer fees. Also the accused person will probably be ostracized by many of their friends, hence traumatized for life
