I just read her tweet, funny how there is no description or even a mention of the so called assault.

I mean I'd get it if she had already gone to the police, and was asking other victims or witnesses to come forward, but this just makes it look like she's doing it for the attention, because that's the only thing she can get out of it by making the accusation in this manner.
You are forgetting the little side effect: someone's ruined life (note that included corroboration with blunt "oh, I didn't think it was a problem back then, but then I re-analyzed").


Corroboration worked quite "well" in Gomeshi (oh boy, how lucky he was to have that brilliant lawyer) trial, that set Canadian legislation in motion to basically "why don't we prevent defense from calling out accuser's lies" (forcing defense to reveal all evidence they have in advance, had that happened, Gomeshi accusers would not be caught lying, he would spend most of his life in prison), hilariously stopped by some judge in the ruling below:

I don't understand why you'd want to have sex with that woman, and even less of the "variety" that gets you into jail.



Also, why do all of these "rape victims" always look like crazy lesbians?
I see she has her official ResetEra hair color on. This person has lied too many times for me to even listen, and the other accuser that just came out, if true, should be talking to the cops not the Kangaroo Court that is Twitter.

This woman is the very definition of "attention whore". If I remember correctly this is not the first time she has thrown out fake accusations.

My only question is why are these assault allegations only ever broadcast over twitter. If this is a thing that happened, surely your first thought is to report this to the police?

I don't want to sound like a "victim-blamer" but have we honestly reached a point where only words are necessary to be used as the proof of abuse/sexual assault?

Real victims never do that. And exactly, the police is the place to go. This is just a attempt to drag somebody through the mud, because she's full of envy. She knows the power of social media, and abuses it to suit her insatiable appetite for damaging successful people.

Oh look that troll who destroyed a Kickstarter that was supposed to show who is a fake victim. Isn't it?

Needs more attention. How about just fightg this in court and keeping the ugly mouth shut until you actually won? I mean this is just attention whoring as always. No logical reason to make this public other than attention and causing harm on purpose. Make it public afterwards if you want

I think that depends on the situation of the victim.

F this industry. F all of it. Drama queens everywhere. It's all about this social media attention whoring and politics now. Fn social media. Everyone telling off everyone and pointing fingers at each other, acting like they're all high and mighty, and flawless. Fn come back down to earth again. We're all fallible. Everyone's quick to send the other to the guillotine. So many lies. So much controversy. So much shit. I don't know who or what to believe.

No wonder I miss the 80s and 90s. God.

I respectfully disagree. That is unless it's in real-time, using social media as a cry for immediate help. You're not going to share the tale of a rape on a public platform years after it supposedly happened.
I don't believe zoe quinn. I was mixing up what the two of you had said and had turned into something worse in my head. I was thinking that you meant real victims go to the police , and I was thinking I know someone who did not go to the police.
Sorry about that.

Who needs a trial at the Court House when you may have one on social media, with the mobs on your side ? This disgusting practice NEEDS TO STOP. We need jurisprudence against it ASAP.
The only way this culture can be stopped is if libel proceedings are brought against individuals. Unfortunately, the atmosphere is so charged and acute, men are reluctant to fight back.

If she is lying, she needs to be taken to the fucking cleaners.

But she won’t be. And because there are no checks against this sort of behaviour, it will continue.

Even if I somehow wanted to, I couldn't believe this individual in anyway. Some of her other deeds have been listed in this thread already, but let's not forget about that gamejam she took money for into her personal paypal account that NEVER happened, never got a date or a place but was "Totally happening guys!" for like 2 years before going silent. This is the one person who if they told me the sky was blue I'd still not believe them.
