Hmm, I definitely understand where you're coming from but I see more of both sides than anything else. I see people upset at the person who has been accused, and I also see people upset at the person who is making all the accusations. I don't ever see one side pile higher than another. With that said, rape allegations aren't a fun thing to go through. There's a lot of problems I have lately with all this YouTube drama bullshit, with most of it starting to fill like a political platform than an actual site to create and share fun content.

Anyways, I digress. My point was that I get why people get upset at either person- and really it's a beautiful thing to see so many people try and support someone during all of this. The thing is that we know nothing except what we're told. We can't just go and lynch mob someone who's been accused or the person with the allegations. I think sometimes people get confused or upset because others ask questions, and because of that people think others don't believe them or want to help them. That's not true. People ask questions because they want to know as much as they can so they can help the person who needs it. Being raped is absolutely horrible, and while I've never personally been raped, I have had someone very close to me go through that- and it's horrible. I won't go into details because it's very personal to me and the other person.

My point is that people do care about the victim. I know there's plenty of cynical, negative assholes out there, but you have to understand not everyone is like that. The problem is that people jump to conclusions relatively early without looking at the bigger picture. We don't ask questions because we don't believe them, but instead because we want to understand. The more we know, the better we can help. We want to understand because we care about the victim and those questions will lead to information, and in return that's going to help us understand who the victim really is- the person with the accusations against them, or the person with the allegations.

Anyways, that's just my two cents on the subject. I'm not saying you're wrong or attacking you for what you're saying either, so don't think that. If anything, I'm trying to understand all of this, and I'd also like to share my thoughts on the subject at hand. That's what a proper, mature conversation is- at least in my opinion.
