I was called a rapist for not giving a girl a cigarette. (self.MensRights)

Thought I'd share a little anecdote. Far too often I hear that women 'just don't joke about rape', and that 'rape culture' is fueled only by men. I've had a few run-ins with issues like this, but this one was just so ridiculous I have to share it.
I work a mobile route for a security company. I basically go and check locks, alarms, etc. at night. My brother was at a party and had a lot to drink and needed a ride so he called me. I figured since it was on my route I'd sacrifice my break to help him out.
I arrived at the street and see two women (maybe mid 20s) walking to a car parked outside and staggering a bit. I keep driving (the street leads into a sort of circular parking lot dead end), I keep driving so I can make a u turn and park alongside the house the party that was at. One of the girls (I'll call her T) starts nearly running away (come to find out later they thought I was a cop at first glance, this street has no lighting at all). I thought it was weird but made my u turn, parked alongside the house, and texted my brother that I was outside.
I decided I'd have a smoke while I'd wait. I grab a cig and open my door to get out and the second girl (I'll call her S) come up and bashes the door in my face in such a way that the top of the door smashes the bridge of my nose. She starts screaming "Why the FUCK are you honking at us?!" I had not honked my horn at all, and I didn't hear ANY other vehicles honking. I said "What the fuck?! You need to chill out! I didn't honk at all!" she starts getting ridiculously aggressive and belligerent right off the bat. She says "Are you <name of the town> police?! What the fuck are you doing here?" I said "Listen again, chill...OUT! I'm just a security guard, I'm picking up my brother (brother's name) on my break". So then S starts to back off, and T gets sassy and goes "Well, you at least owe us a smoke". I laughed a bit and said "Are you for real?! You and your friend here bash my nose with a door and start shouting at me and I owe YOU? You're goddamn insane!"
So I start to light up and she's just standing there and says "Are you fucking serious? You need to give me a smoke" and now S is also shouting
"Give her a fucking smoke!"
I just said "Why?"
S replies "For trying to rape us!" I said "Okay, I'm done with this. Please take off, I'm waiting for (brother's name)" S shouted it louder so people at the house would hear "YOU TRIED TO RAPE US!" I just turned my back to them. They keep nagging about the cigarette and I said "Look, This is insane you owe me an apology, if you apologize and go away I'll give you a smoke". S apologizes.
So I unlock my door to get the box out and before I even have my hand on the door handle T comes up and slaps the cigarette from my mouth, picks it up off the ground and puts it in her mouth!!
At this point I was losing my cool and I said "You bitches are nuts, please get out of here. This is straight up foolishness."
Finally my brother comes out and is like "What's going on here?" they shouted "He tried to rape us! He said he was going to rape both of us!" I shook my head at the absurdity of them trying to pit my OWN BROTHER against me. My brother was like "Nah..." and started laughing. They kept with the story and said "He said he was (name of town) PD and that he was going to rape us!" Of course my brother wasn't buying it. They then S kept saying to me "I hope you get raped one day!" to me. I got into my car and then S shouted to my brother "He'll rape you too! Fucking rapist!" and T started saying the line from Deliverance about I deserved to be raped and "squeal like a pig".
Seriously, it was just 'rape this, rape that'. It was ridiculous.
