Why it's so unlikely any woman would lie about being raped.

EVEN IN THIS groundbreaking #MeToo moment, the age-old myth that a woman who says she was raped is a liar – covering up a regretted act of consensual sex – remains as popular as ever. In Dave Chapelle's new comedy special, "The Bird Revelation," he jokes that if Harvey Weinstein looked like Brad Pitt, he would not have been accused of assault and rape.

But the myth of the woman who falsely cries rape should never serve as a punchline. I've been tracking slut-shaming – when girls and women are labeled "sluts" and "hos" – for over two decades, interviewing hundreds of teenage girls and women who have been ostracized, harassed and assaulted as a result of their sexual reputation. Their experiences show that it is highly unlikely for any woman to lie about being raped.
In our culture of slut-shaming, women are routinely treated as sex objects but then punished for doing (or presumed to be doing) what is expected of them. Nearly all teenage girls and women are at risk of being labeled a "slut" or "ho" at some point, regardless of their actual sexual behavior.

Wait a minute here. Woman are sometimes "treated as sex objects" unfairly and against their wishes.
SOMETIMES that is exactly their wish and intent. SOMETIMES it is not.
What? The Kardashian crew has gotten rich from their skills as artists, or as high profile SEX OBJECTS? Hell, they practically get into knife fights (verbally of course) with other "celebrates" over who can display the most flesh on "the red carpet."
