I didn’t really think of the long term ramifications of being accused of rape but not convicted. The internet is forever, and any time they go to apply for a job, a Google search will bring up the trial. That poor woman whose brother and mom committed suicide suffered horribly.

I know people will argue about the anonymity side in regards to others coming forward. It’s bullshit, until someone is PROVEN guilty they should have an automatic right to it. Too many have turned out innocent and had their lives destroyed. Also anyone found guilty of false allegations should receive a hefty sentence and have to pay a substantial amount of damages to those they accused.

Having been accused myself its soul destroying that someone that you cared about for so long can be so evil and lie. She claimed that she even went to the police about it and they did nothing which is an absolute lie. The stuff she was accusing me of, I would have been questioned. She said this stuff over social media without naming me but everyone knew who she was talking about. She did it for the attention, she was the one with tons of friends, every guy wanted to be with her type, looks completely innocent and then me with no friends so easy for people to point the finger. It scares the shit of me basically, I feel like I can’t achieve anything big in my life, like if I wrote book that did well, or got something I wrote made into movie/TV and I’m in the limelight, she would be the type to jump out and point the finger claiming all this stuff just because she would get tons of attention with the media and my life would be destroyed.

Trials should honestly be private until the verdict is made. It’s disgusting how no one cares anymore about “innocent until proven guilty”. Now even if you’re proven innocent social media and google will archive you forever and your life is still ruined. This is the part of rape culture people don’t want to talk about and it has affected more than people realize.

How is it that wrongly accusing some people of rape can ruin their lives, while other people can be accused and proven to have raped someone and still go on with their lives like nothing happened? Is being rich the sole factor?
