Personal accountability? No thank you: An unpopular perspective re: claims of drink-spiking or similar


Here are some articles that appeared in the media from late 2021 to late 2022, with more available via google search:

Students call for nightclubs boycott to ensure ‘spiking is taken seriously’ after reports of women being injected (20 October 2021) How about taking the notion of *evidence* seriously? Not one mention of any drug/s detected in girls bodies. Not one. That’s what some might call evidence of hysteria.

This Twitter stream lists extracts from a series of article in the ‘Liverpool Echo’, all unquestioningly accepting the relentless bogeyman meme.

I’m sure you’ve previously seen others with the same or similar theme … poor innocent women just wanting a fun night out but some creepy character (=guy) puts something in their drinks and they wind up doing something that they’d never do otherwise …

This Wiki item for ‘Date Rape Drug’ mentions various women who claimed to have been sexually assaulted after their drink was spiked, yet in almost all cases they were not found to have any drugs in their bodies.

See also this discussion thread and this video which provide further analysis of the issue.

Might it be that many women are exercising bad judgement and then, rather than accepting accountability for what subsequently occurred, look about for someone or something to put the blame on? If this was symptomatic of a broader trend re: women’s propensity to shift blame, then clearly there would be very considerable potential for false rape allegations to occur.

In fact I’d suggest that it’s entirely likely that there are more instances of drink-spiking by women – particularly with the intention of theft (first example here).
