Look NO ONE is saying force sexual contact, harassment, rape, ect BE FROM MEN OR WOMEN is ok or justified.
NO ONE is saying those that have committed said crimes should get away with it.
I also understand maybe with a person in power reporting it takes an act of courage and is hard.
HOWEVER we have this BASIC RIGHT of "innocent until PROVEN GUILTY in A COURT OF LAW".
In that basic principle the ACCUSED is granted rights and protection as is the ALLEGED victim.
No party should be taken at fact value and BOTH have to provide FACTS AND EVIDENCE.
But in sexual crimes the cold hard truth is your GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT and even then your life may be destroyed even though your found
Hell it is a common tactic in messy divorces where money, children or both involved.
what should disturb people is that alot of these cases now are DECADES old with most (not all) having NO PHYSICAL PROOF.
just he said she said (or vice versa).
How in hell does one get a fair trial when the accuser doesnt come forward for (ex) a decade and its up to you to prove your innocent not her/him to
prove your guilty "beyond reasonable doubt" ?
do you all supporting blindly the metoo movement realize that some lady or ladies can come years if not decades later and accuse you of (ex) rape with
NO PROOF other than their word and DESTROY your life?
maybe you did or maybe they have a grudge for some reason and your now a target (be just because, you are successful, you refused them, whatever)
then if proven you were innocent they go scott free but you lost your job, your reputation is gone, and/or a divorce?
It is a nightmare that can happen literally to anyone. A modern day salem witch trial
there needs to be some sanity here and BOTH SIDES need to be treated as you would any other crime.
no one is taken at blind face value and EVIDENCE rules the day.
Lastly and possibly most controversial (but fair) is if you cant make a criminal case or a current (ex employee) case then you cant go after them in
just ask yourself this... do you want to be guilty until proven innocent?
