just as if he had committed rape. 

 

The punishment for rape is very severe in all civilized countries and 

ranges from ten years' imprisonment to life imprisonment, while in 

some States in this Union the punishment is death. 

 

It is not my intention to go into an exhaustive discussion of this 

painful subject. In this brief chapter I merely wish to bring out two 

facts. 

 

First, that it is the almost unanimous opinion of all experts that it 

is practically impossible for a man to commit rape on a normal adult 

girl or woman if she really offers all the resistance of which she is 

capable. Of course, if the man knocks the woman down with a blow, 

rendering her unconscious, that is a different matter. But where no 

brutality is used by the man, and the woman offers all the resistance 

she is capable of, rape is practically impossible. It is, however, 

possible that in some cases the girl may be so paralyzed by fear as to 

be incapable of offering any resistance. When the man threatens her 

with death or severe bodily injury, then it is rape even if she offers 

no resistance. 

 

The second point is that it has been established that of the many 

accusations of rape brought before the courts _most_ are false. Out of 

a hundred cases only about ten are true. The rest are false. This 

false accusation of rape is due to a peculiar perversion with which 

some women suffer. Some of the cases are due to hysteria, to 

imagination, the women really believing that rape or an attempt at 

rape was committed on them, while investigation shows the accusation 

to be entirely false. Many accusations of rape are due to a desire 

for revenge or merely to motives of blackmail. 

 

Careful doctors and dentists will refuse to give laughing gas or 

another anesthetic to women except in the presence of others, because, 

as is well known, an anesthetic often causes in women erotic dreams 

and sensations and makes them believe that the doctor was committing 

or about to commit an indecent assault on them, and when they come out 

of the anesthetic they may be so sure of the reality of their dream 

that they will bring a complaint against the doctor. Many men have 

suffered disgrace and imprisonment and have had their lives ruined or 

even paid the death penalty on account of false accusations against 

them by either pervert, hysterical, revengeful or blackmailing women.
