I was going to post this over in the main subreddit but thought since this was more of a question thought it belonged here.
Anyways my question is straightforward would be ; What is the best way to protect yourself against false alligation from women in your past, or future encounters? "
Reason i am asking this is i lately have noticed a familiarity around two sexual assult accusations against two people i know personally. Both are people im close too, work in different fields. But what they both have in common was that the alligation happen years back, and those accusing them is someone they studied same field with/worked together, but then who didnt succeed as them in their carrer/education path.
The saddest thing is one of the accused i know, couple of weeks back got an "award" in his field ( dont want to get into much detail about which), but the interesting was the person accusing him was present that night as they work same field, even had a good conversation catching up, until weeks later he gets the police knocking on his door. And now she is accusing him of sexual assult during grad school.
I talked to him, and asked him if that did happen, and he was no. I grew up with the guy and knew his parents back in Chicago. And i knew he was speaking the truth. But i asked him why she would say he did, and he honestly didnt understand. But i could see that it was a hate motivated false alligation
Not going to lie both of those incident with two of my friend have kinda made me paranoid. Im careful now with whom i date, and all. But its the " blast from the past" that i run into im kinda wary off.
So if anyone could come advice with how to protect yourself from false alligation from past or future.
