Rubbish. There is no shortage of people talking freely about the subject. It has become one of the main issues du jour, particularly for anyone trying to garner attention and sympathy. Which strikes me as exactly how Davidson is seeking to use it. In many cases this objective can be aimed at by jumping on the #MeToo bandwagon. But if you really can’t find, or exaggerate, any historic sexual incident to turn you into a victim, having some historic mental health issue is a good alternative.
