But declining to reach a conclusion about an allegation isn’t the same as sweeping it aside, erasing it, or ignoring, impugning, or silencing the accuser.
In Vox, the journalist Laura McGann described being approached by Reade, trying to corroborate her claims, and failing.
“I wanted to believe Reade when she first came to me, and I worked hard to find the evidence to make certain others would believe her, too.
None of that means Reade is lying, but it leaves us in the limbo of Me Too: a story that may be true but that we can’t prove.”Her anguish is understandable.
Those who say “believe all women” want all alleged survivors taken seriously.
