Alan Dershowitz Dismantles The ‘Believe All Women’ Talking Point Of The Left

The left is pushing the idea that all women who accuse others of abuse must be believed. Things have gotten especially crazy over the last several days because of the Kavanaugh confirmation process. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz is proving once again to be the voice of reason.

The Daily Wire reports:

Dershowitz: There Are No Gender Or Political Truth-Telling Genes

Noted attorney Alan Dershowitz has thrown cold water on the “Believe Women” caucus that shouts loudly on social media.

In an op-ed for The Hill, Dershowitz explained that there is “no scientific basis” for the gender stereotypes regarding truth-telling being bandied about in the media.

“An entire academic area of pseudo-science has arisen in a phony effort to prove that women claiming sexual assault are always, or almost always, truthful,” Dershowitz wrote. “I have studied and taught the subject for decades and I have seen no authoritative study that comes close to establishing a gender-based predisposition for truth-telling or lying in the context of sexual assault.”

Here’s more from the op-ed in The Hill:

Far too many people, including senators from both parties, have immediately invoked gender stereotypes: Women never lie. Men often lie. Men are assailants. Women are victims. There is absolutely no scientific basis for any of these conclusions. An entire academic area of pseudo-science has arisen in a phony effort to prove that women claiming sexual assault are always, or almost always, truthful. I have studied and taught the subject for decades and I have seen no authoritative study that comes close to establishing a gender-based predisposition for truth-telling or lying in the context of sexual assault.

The so-called empirical arguments in support of these highly politicized conclusions are so deeply flawed as not to warrant serious consideration. Yet they prevail in the media and on both sides of the political spectrum. A predisposition toward lying, truth-telling, memory reconstruction, memory failure and other aspects of reporting the past are completely individualized. People must be judged individually and not by gender, political affiliation or ideology.

One thing has become clear. Nothing is too low for the left in this battle.
