Would you think it was creepy if a guy made up a story about being gang raped and told it to a reporter?

Asked by josie (30926points) April 7th, 2015

I am thinking of a scene in a movie I saw once called Deliverence. A guy gets boinked in the rectum by a crazy mountain man.
What would you think of guy who fabricated such a tale, and told it to a Rolling Stone reporter?
I would think it was pretty creepy.
Is it proper to render the same judgement against the girl who did the same thing at UVa?

Yeah, it is creepy. What’s the motive of the person fabricating such a tale? Doesn’t matter if it’s a male or a female. It’d be even creepier if he squealed like a pig while getting boinked.

Until we know what actually happened or didn’t, I would be loath to judge anyone’s story of rape. All we know is that Rolling Stone didn’t fact check and that the story as presented was fabricated.

It’s not creepy, it’s sad and offensive to all victims of sexual assault.

I’d think, given his fabrication, it was wishful thinking on his behalf.

Deliverance. Blast from the past!

I second @tinyfaery.

Regardless of whether the person was male or female, lying about rape and sexual assault is damaging to real victims. I don’t know what Jackie’s motivation was, whether she suffers from some form of mental illness or if there was ANY truth to her story.
