Because the burden society places on women that come forward with these accusations is so intense that it's hard to believe any woman would ever come forward with something that they had just made up.
Because believing women and victims when they come forward about these things is important and morally correct.
In my oponion, morally correct is to have facts that corroborate a claim before we judge someone, anyone, on anything.
Of course there are levels to that. Cosby did it. I dont care if all we have against him is the account of women he attacked, to me is pretty clear cut he is guilty.
This case, I actually do believe the girl. I think it happened just like she said. But I can be wrong, easily, since that is my personal opinion, and not a fact. I hope more women come forward, if he really did it I doubt it was jsut her, and more evidence appear to back them up, and we can bury him as well.
A question for you, I dont know if you have a son, but if you do, or imagine one day you do, what if a girl or woman comes to you and accuses him of sexual harassement? Would you judge him automatically guilty, or would want more information before ?
