This website is dedicated to enlightenment and creativity. I feel there is a need to speak upon the harsh and evil world of narcissism. It exists more now than ever and people need to be aware of this hurtful and morally bankrupt sickness. Many people and relationships have been destroyed by individuals who show signs of Covert or Overt narcissism. (Photo by Fotolia)
As the voices of sexual misconduct rise in the west, we must be aware that some of these accusations may have little to no merit. I believe if someone actually rapes another individual they should be held accountable for their actions, and stand in judgment of the law.
However, there are those who have other reasons for making such claims, and the person who is being accused should have the right to insist that the accuser show proof of their claim. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? It only exists for some, but not for all.
I personally have had a woman say to me that a man raped her only to later retract her statement as being false or taken out of context. The system of law we live under is slowly breaking down and social media, fake news and public opinion will be its downfall.
Rape is a serious crime and should not be used as a weapon or a tool to disguise your shame for something you did, and now regret.
