Male Fear of False Accusations Is Irrational · Baron Schwartz's Blog
If the rate of false accusation is about 4 percent, same as every other crime, and 1 in 4 women make true accusations, a bit more than 1 in 96 men will be the victim of false accusations that essentially ruin their life. Calling this irrational and sexist is essentially unacceptable.

Casual bigotry dehumanizes people, and tells predatory people that you will not be likely to speak out if they choose to harass someone around you – or you yourself. But you can change that by speaking up. Never underestimate the power of a simple “pardon me?” or a more direct “wow, that was a messed up thing to say.”
