Our Purpose

UPDATE: As of 5/1/2021, we are still accepting and publishing submissions, although our response may be significantly delayed. If you submitted a name more than a month ago and haven't heard back from us yet, feel free to send an email following up and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

If you're here to report a name, go here or click 'Report a name' in the sidebar.

Make Them Scared is a communal wiki created in the UW/Seattle area but open to submissions from anywhere in the world to give survivors of sexual violence a voice and a way to warn others about their attackers.
  • This website is not a court of law. If someone's name is on the list, all it means is that we have received an accusation against them. If the name of someone you know appears on this list, take note and proceed with caution, but it does not mean they have necessarily committed a crime.
  • We do not have the ability to determine whether any accused party is legally "guilty" or "innocent." That being said, we no longer allow names to be submitted anonymously (the point when this changed is marked on the list), which means all accusers have given us some form of personal identification, in addition to some form of identification of the accused in order to avoid misunderstanding and confusion. If we have any reason to believe an accusation may be false, we will not publish it. Our intention is to do everything we can to avoid publishing false claims.
  • Make them scared does not encourage the use of violence. The mission of this site is to make information that is usually buried and silenced publicly available, to make the world a safer place, and to give survivors of sexual violence a means of obtaining justice in a world whose institutions are biased against them.
  • Make them scared is intended to be a last resort for those who other official reporting systems have failed. It is not intended to be a substitution for these reporting systems. We encourage all survivors to first make an official report. Only official authorities have the ability to conduct a thorough investigation and determine guilt or innocence. 
  • We want to start a movement. This wiki was originally created by students at the University of Washington, but it is our hope that people interested in outing the names of sexual harassers/attackers from other college campuses will follow suit. Until then, we'll continue to publish names from anywhere on our list. Make Them Scared has no affiliation with the university.
  • We want to be the best we can. If you have any suggestions for how we can do what we're doing better, please let us know. This has been a learning process for us, and we want to do everything we can to handle a sensitive topic with care and responsibility.
