Is there ever an instance of sexual harrassment when the woman is attracted to the male making advances?
I enuinely think sometimes they are led to believe they are meant to behave a certain way, or think they are doing nothing wrong and don't realise.
“He was a comedian they admired,” The Times writes. “The women would be together. His intentions seemed collegial. As soon as they sat down in his room, still wrapped in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women said.
“They thought it was a joke and laughed it off. ‘And then he really did it,’ Ms. Goodman said in an interview with The New York Times. ‘He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.’”

I heard the same thing as you, O.P., I am no fan of sexual abuse, but it seems like the criteria are getting to the point where a woman could even say yes and then call it abuse later on. Who knows what it could be like in the future.
"How do we avoid unsubstantiated accusations for behavior from 40 years ago from derailing careers?"
“To think that grown women would wait 40 years... to bring charges is absolutely unbelievable,”
I am frustrated and confused.

Sometimes, instead of speaking you may want to listen.
If the women involved are telling you that they found it abusive, inappropriate, invasive and extremely creepy. (or whatever the specific suggestions are).. you may want to wonder why they see it that way, rather than try to suggest there really was no problem.
However, perhaps you can mansplain why being perceived as a sexual creep is not being a sexual creep. I'm sure women everywhere will be hanging on your insight (:

We are now punishing people based on accusations and not proof, but in situations where proof is impossible, what else can we do?
