How to prevent false sexual assault reports

It's simple.

Don't rape.


According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, only 2-8% of reported sexual assaults are false. So, when someone reports a sexual assault, chances are that they are telling the truth.

Instead of worrying about false reports, we should be preventing sexual assault by practicing affirmative consent and destroying rape culture. Make sure that everyone who is participating is not coerced, is 100% willing, and is able to give consent.

Rape is never a survivor's fault, regardless of what they're wearing, how much they drank, or that they said yes to a kiss yesterday.
