To the Editor:
What constitutes sexual assault or rape? A standard and simplistic ABCD method of deduction should include: A. If someone felt uncomfortable exclaiming any of the following, “No!” “Don’t!” or “Stop!”And that offender continued their advancements, pursuing the encounter. B. Intentionally giving someone drugs/alcohol in order to take advantage of normal boundaries. C. Someone was restrained, when violating personal reserved anatomy. D. Any lascivious occurrence happening in any aggressive manner. Verbally or physically threatening to harm anyone, if they wouldn’t perform an erogenous act. That’s when someone ought to consult a responsible adult and report to law enforcement. That’s true victimhood. Justice for any real victims needs to be a civil obligation, served with due diligence.
There also needs to be a stern warning for anyone falsely claiming sexual assault or rape onto any innocent person. Sometimes, mistaken identities occur or an unconscious transference from previous traumatic events by a real offender.
I believe this to be the case of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford vs. Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The public mention of unwanted sexual accusation causes a public dishonoring to anyone’s personal family name. The re-enforcement of witness with perjury charges needs to occur if they’re only political differences involved.
As good names are vital for business deals, public socialization and finding prestigious paying jobs. Honorable justice includes, their felony record publication onto deceitful accusers for life. If a personal story has been muddled with a collegial psychological postmodernism verses, a biblical unwavering truth? What happens to plaintiffs when they’re dealing unconsciously with a holy spiritual confliction?
The father of American jurisprudence, James Kent, expressed “Every citizen might freely speak, write, and print, on any subject, [but is] responsible for the abuse of the liberty. ... Without such a check, the press, in the hands of evil and designing men, would become a most formidable engine, as mighty for mischief, as for good.” Particularly, sexual misconduct claims ought to be actionable public statements. Especially a pre-emptive verdict of guilt, minus any trial. It’s legally and ethically wrong. Without due process are any of us safe from fraudulent allegations?
