‘I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that. It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place.’
When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jim Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded.
As professor K.C. Johnson noted, the damage has already been done: ‘Duke’s actions: (a) cost him a job; and (b) forced him to leave the country [because] he lost his visa.’
The woman who accused Liam Allan said he had raped her multiple times over a 14-month period, and that she did not enjoy sex with him. Thousands of her text messages said otherwise.
A bare claim should be insufficient to convict a person outright, even in the court of public opinion. There should still be a presumption of innocence and a demand for veracity and proof.
Because we’re harsh on rapists, we don’t have to consider our own responsibility in triggering other people’s vulnerabilities.
A host of men possibly falsely accused of rape by Lena Dunham and Rolling Stone definitely have grounds for defamation lawsuits.
