In a recent appearance on talk radio’s The Lars Larson Show, conservative talking head Ann Coulter speculated that most women who report rapes are just “girls trying to get attention.”
The author, who is no stranger to controversy, says that a botched Rolling Stone story about a campus rape at the University of Virginia just shows that “there is no campus rape problem.” Camille Cosby also used that same incident as an example in her statement defending her husband.
Coulter takes it one step further by also dismissing the notion that date or acquaintance rapes are out of hand, stating that unless a victim gets “hit on the head with a brick,” it isn’t a legitimate rape.
“People know what a rape is, and to have girls trying to get attention — from Lena Dunham to this poor psychotic at UVA, Lady Gaga claiming she was raped but she didn’t admit it to herself for five years. What major crime do people say, ‘I didn’t admit it to myself?’”
In another part of the interview, the 53-year-old pundit insists that it is liberals who are vastly overstating instances of campus rape, which, in her experience, is usually perpetrated by liberal men like the “Clintons and Kennedys,” anyway.
