Excellent and brave, Laura – the sisterhood will not be pleased with you.
It seems to me that Jenni Russell is conflating her delusional belief that a ‘believe the men’ standard operates in our law courts, when in fact it is ‘presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt following the full testing of evidence in a lawful tribunal’. If we dispense with this, as feminists seem to believe that we should, we might just as well frogmarch everyone accused of a crime, especially if it’s of a sexual nature, into a dungeon and throw away the key, because they’re guilty of being accused – by women like Ms Russell who ‘know how men with sterling reputations can behave’. Who needs evidence and truthful judgement when feminist victim narratives are so much easier than all that patriarchal cross-examination and evidence-testing stuff?
Grievance-feminism: the word for highly disturbed women who project their resentful, malevolent, male-envying psychopathology on to the world and then form twitch-hunts to legislate their crazy inner mirages into reality, destroying justice and fairness for everyone else. Progressive, eh?
