So your rationale for women not reporting rape/sexual assault/attacks is you fought off a teenager and a middle-aged man. I didn't hear you mention weaponry in their hands. I'm also going to go out on a limb and assume adult men who aren't eligible for AARP or haven't graduated from high school yet are probably stronger, faster and might beat the shit out of you. With that said, I've also fought a boy in my teenage years. We ended up trying to choke each other out. That doesn't mean I'm walking around thinking I'm Heman and can just beat the shit out of anybody who I come in contact with. That's not how the real-world works. You got lucky twice. Some women don't.

I do believe there are certain circumstances in which women do lie. But this sounds like you think the majority are just lying for kicks. That's concerning, to say the least.

Side note: No one gives a damn whether you were in America or not. Fun fact: Rapists don't show you their passports first to make themselves eligible for the crime.
