Feminists, you might want to sit down for this.  Female students in the Seneca Valley School District in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania admitted to something you apparently think is physically impossible: they lied about a sexual assault.

They said the boy sexually assaulted them in a pool, and said it loudly enough that a school guidance counselor overheard them.  The counselor reported it to the state’s child abuse prevention agency (as required by law) and the boy’s life was forever changed.  He was charged with indecent assault and harassment, and was put on six months of probation.

Turns out, they girls wanted to hurt him because they didn’t like him. “I just don’t like him” and “[I] would do anything to get him expelled,” one of the girls said.  But that’s not all that happened.  Reason magazine reports on the second false charge against the boy the lawsuit calls “TF”:

Months later, in March of 2018, T.F. was again falsely accused, according to the lawsuit. Another girl invited him over to a house party; a few days later, she told the school guidance counselor that T.F. had broken into her home and sexually assaulted her. The lawsuit claims she was coached by T.F.’s first accuser. As a result of this accusation, T.F. was charged with assault and criminal trespassing. He was removed from school in leg and wrist shackles, and spent 9 days in juvenile detention.

The lawsuit elaborates on a number of other indignities T.F. suffered:

He was released on house arrest on April 18, 2018, with an ankle monitor, and specific instructions from [Juvenile Probation Officer] Michael Trego that he could not tell people about the ankle device, and he could not wear shorts or other clothing that revealed the ankle device, even though it was during some of the hottest days of summer. He was not permitted to have any visitors, phone, or internet access, and could not leave the house except for therapy, which he requires to deal with the psychological trauma he suffered, and to attend church. After 28 days, he was allowed outside the house only to mow his lawn, which he had to do in long pants regardless of the temperature. He was unable to play during most of the high school baseball season and was told by the Athletic Director that she was not sure he could play baseball because every time he was wearing a Seneca Valley jersey, he was representing the school. T.F. was unable to play baseball or work at his summer jobs for part of the summer.

By the end of the summer, the conspiracy against T.F. was unmasked: other students came forward with Snapchat messages that contradicted the claims of the “mean girls,” who eventually admitted to lying. All charges against T.F. were dropped.

Guess what the school did to the girls?  Nothing.

T.F’s attorney said his client “was basically being tortured in school by the other students and investigators, but the administration was only focused on protecting the girls who were lying.”

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

The parents of T.F. are filing criminal charges against the girls.

After the terrible Brett Kavanaugh hearings, we need to wake up to the face that both women and men lie for a host of reasons.  The case of the lying girls above show us what common sense should’ve already taught us: we don’t trust people because of their gender, but because of evidence.

Also, there should be some sort of consequence for ruining a person’s life… even if they are male.
