Ofcourse there are lots of young boys being sexually abused. However, that's not the issue here.
Err, this IS a thread about a paedophile rapist being let into a family's home by inept Social Service people. It's currently off on a tangent about rape in general, but the original topic is still relevant!

I believe Shingster also eluded to it.
I wasn't being that serious, but either way I eluded to Mark and Yi's inherent chauvinism when assuming that it's only women who could have a problem with crying "rape".
I won't argue that it is less likely for a man to come forward about being raped because of the more uptight attitudes towards homosexuality that exists within the male pysche, but at the end of the day people who are devious enough to accuse someone of rape falsely exists among both sexes.
I agree with Shen that it is pretty certain that the number of women who do falsely cry rape is massively outnumbered by the number of women who won't report rape out of shame because of the the type of chauvinistic attitudes expressed in this thread.

Cause I'm sure it's relatively easy to find 5 cases about lying women, even in the last year, while it seems pretty hard to find examples of men being raped, let alone them lying about it.
The problem with doing this is that male-female rape so vastly outnumbers male-male rape that it's hard to find accounts of men or boys falsely crying rape, because you have to wade through pages and pages of reports of male-female rape. The media is also far less likely to run a story about male-male rape than male-female.
In fact, the only environment when male-male rape can become prevalent
per percentage of population is in prison. I'm sure if there were accurate reports/surveys on rape in male prisons released then you'd find a lot more accounts of false rape (and conversely a higher % of unreported male rape).
