‘She’s not wrong.’
“Agreed. But all I’m saying is she’s wrong in the way she’s doing it.”
‘Oh! So you say that if a man harasses, molests or worse rapes another woman, then she should gulp that down and keep mum, right?’
“All I’m saying is she should file charges then and there. Not after a decade.”
‘So that’s her fault? That she chose to keep quiet, right?’
“Wrong again. Keeping quiet is no fault. But speaking up after very many years definitely is. The world may still believe what she says but the courts, sadly, don’t operate on belief.”
