I think this page should have some warning about how dangerous this can be, given the high number of Karma Houdini rape cases and how it undermines the credibility of rape accusations, thereby perpetuating this situation.

That would be a Real Life reference, and these are frowned upon as they create arguments.

Why is this page edit locked? Anyway, I have an example for when it's unlocked:

Ranma 1/2: Inverted and Invoked by Ranma himself, who encourages Ryoga to believe Ranma raped their mutual love interest Akane so that Ryoga gets angry enough for Ranma to use a specific technique on him.

I was wanting to add an example, but the page is locked...oh well. I'll post it here and whoever has the permissions can add it if they want.

  • In Under the Dome by Stephen King, the main character, Dale "Barbie" Barbara, is working as a short order cook at a grill when one of the waitresses starts hitting on him. He rejects her advances, but she keeps at it. Eventually it culminates in her cornering him in a backroom and groping him, while he angrily tells her off. The next day, the waitress's boyfriend storms in, demanding that Barbie come out into the parking lot to fight him. The reason? The waitress, angry at being spurned, lied to the boyfriend and claimed that Barbie had raped her, all in order to get the boyfriend to kick Barbie's ass.

This page, and the readers, can handle some real life examples, to show how it has been used (with varying degrees of success).

You clearly overestimate tv trope users tolerance to any form of potential strife and the ad server's tolerance of sexual topics

"The person accused must be innocent beyond a mere court ruling of "Not Guilty". This is because the "not guilty" ruling could also be played off as the criminal getting away with their actions."

I think this would be better phrased as "The person accused must be innocent. Actually innocent, not merely found innocent, since the latter case could also be played off as the criminal getting away with their actions" or something similar.

"Not guilty" is the only verdict that would apply. What you're referring to is legal innocence (innocent until proven guilty, where being declared "not guilty" makes one this) versus actual innocence, where one did not factually commit the crime, whether convicted or not.
