Sexual assault, negative, rape culture 

People alre always like "innocent until proven guilty" but they are quick to harass and attack any victims for "ruining a man's career" even if there's no concrete proof that an allegation is false. What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Or does that only apply to abusers?

Sexual assault, negative, rape culture 

I know so many people who have been sexually assaulted. I know no one who has come forward with it to the authorities. I know many abusers and rapists but I don't know anyone who is behind bars for their crime.

There is a reason for this.

I've been thinking about this because some YouTuber has been "uncancelled" because there was only concrete proof for some part of the allegation. They were still morally (and probably legally) an abuser. The victim got harassed and attacked because although the assault happened, it wasn't as violent as they described (according to the abuser).

This person admitted to pressuring them and not asking for consent. Their defence was that they apologised for making them uncomfortable (as if abusers don't do that). The victim was underage while the abuser was barely legal, so no matter how enthusiastic they allegedly were, they were still too young to consent.

Now people are going around talking about how he's "innocent" just because it wasn't as violent and vile as the victim described.

People always want to find an excuse to dismiss victims.

I hate this society sometimes.
