These accusations should be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Corey Taylor is correct. Man is a "four letter word."

What catcul said.

Personally, I can accept the slogan of "Believe Women!" in the sense of, law enforcement should take every sexual assault allegation seriously and investigate dilligently. I cannot accept it as, believe every accusation from a woman against a man, because women don't lie about sexual assault. That doesn't make sense.

So, yes: let's see what comes out of this accusation. Maybe it's true, maybe it isn't.

Now I'll be honest I'm not familiar with the new case but this is another tactic of twitter trolls seeking attention called creating false equivalence. Where a conclusion is made taking 2 tangentially related topics and forcing a connection between them to create a logical fallacy in an attempt to be able to go "gotcha" on your beliefs as though situations cannot have nuance.
