1st things first to all, SAY NO TO RAPE!!!
Rape victims deserve to be allowed to speak up and be heard, and it doesn’t matter the time they are speaking up, no matter how long ago the act happened, the accuser’s story deserves to be accorded credibility and they should get justice. I can never and will never stand for rape. However, a person is innocent until proven guilty, and the accuser should take her case to court to seek the justice they desperately deserve. BUT THERE IS A REASON WHY THE LAW SAYS ONE IS ASSUMED INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
However, on Social media, this rape issue has turned into an Attention seeking freak show in which celebrities and non-celebrities alike jump on the bandwagon of sentimentalism while heavily ignoring LOGIC and FACTS simply to gain more attention and clout. The Social media court can never and will never prove TRUE guilt or innocence. I believe rapists deserve to be punished for their crimes and should rot in jail, But you can only legally prove one is guilty in a court of law!
A rape allegation is a court issue, and until a verdict is reached, it’ll be unwise to jump into hasty conclusions or internet jungle Justice as I call it. Many of the people calling for the man’s head online will condemn jungle Justice on the streets but are quick to do exactly what they condemn on the internet when it comes to rape accusations. This is very unwise. Every Rape victim regardless of how long ago she was raped deserves Justice, but Justice got the right way!
Lastly, I saw a comment on twitter where someone said
“There are never two sides to a rape victims story, NEVER” and because of how stupid but very believable that statement is, i feel I have a duty to share these stories of men who were wrongly accused of rape and whose lives were completely shattered because of this “Believe only the accuser” ideology and why it’s not only a very Foolish ideology but also a very dangerous one.
