I'm kind of skeptical about this whole deal personally. It seems like a whole lot of people are coming forward with the 'yeah me too!'s but nobody is actually providing hard info or evidence. And now it seems like their supporting acts are jumping ship to avoid bad press. Pretty weak from everyone involved.

What if it turns out the allegations are bullshit?
Will they be able to repair their reputation?
My guess is no

Accusations like these are basically attempted career homicides. Sad to see this happen, especially after they released Pageant. Hopefully the truth comes forward in one way or another.

These came out a couple days ago, victims don't usually have wvidence and most never come forward out of fear. For one to come forward saying they saw something only leads to more people coming out as victims. Many of these alleged victims only came forward to the girl who posted the original facebook post. Touring band member says the band was emailed months ago but didn't do anything.

With things like sexual assault and rape we have to take them seriously, they are te victims not the band. You being skeptical and saying it's a bad look for everyone, with more knowledge than you, to jump ship says something about you more than anything. The way their management, the band, touring members, and friends of PWR BTTM have reacted i am even more inclined to believe them.

Could the timing be considered suspicious? Sure, but not with te knowledge they were emailed months ago and honestly when will people be looking at this band more besides a heavily anticipated release? It gets the most attention on the problem possible.

Also what hard evidence do you want? Pictures? Video? If you look into this at all besides the headline you'll see there is a lot out there in terms of "evidence" already.

and no smaugman... they haven't.

okay quick chime in: evidence is obviously desired when it comes to making any allegation against anybody but with sexual offences in particular it's very hard to provide much evidence. without me describing what a sexual offence looks like, it's easy to see why: the victim doesn't leave the scene with a stab wound, and there aren't security cameras in people's bedrooms.

ultimately without enough plausible evidence we can't be convinced that somebody is guilty of what a victim is alleging, but as robotmagician said, we gotta take this shit very srsly. the fact that allegations of these sorts of crimes, by nature, often don't come with a lot of evidence means it's easy for them to be trivialised as character assassination when they may in fact be legitimate. then of course there's the sexist implications of ignoring victims of sex offences, and all the other social issues surrounding these crimes like rape culture.

And now it seems like their supporting acts are jumping ship to avoid bad press.

yea sure it might be about bad press but it might also be about showing solidarity to victims regardless of whether there is damning evidence because often there isn't any at all, or at least there isn't any immediately available at the time that somebody is informed of allegations against an associate.
What if it turns out the allegations are bullshit?
Will they be able to repair their reputation?
My guess is no

false allegations can certainly slow down any operation but i dont know that this kinda shit kills any career if disproved.

but REGARDLESS of the unfortunate impact that false allegations can have, all allegations must nonetheless be taken seriously for the reasons above.
rape allegations has become the new communist witch hunt in a certain way

i dont see the resemblance. communist witch hunting was unjustified whereas following up rape accusations is.
What counts as an assault for sjw's though?

in this case, one of the accusations against the person from this band is that they had sex with the victim without permission; the victim later woke up and found the person having non-consensual sex with them again. prima facie that's rape by any standard.

also the notion that "sjws" call "assault" when innocent contact occurs is insane. nobody does this, and if you believe they do, chances are what you think qualifies innocent contact is wrong as opposed to what "sjws" think qualifies "assault" being wrong.

I only just heard of them through their stream via npr and now here we are. Some of the details seem far fetched to me (the whole, 'we were told that Ben was hitting on minors but thought nothing of it,' bit reeks of the same artifice as born again former satanists), but I honestly can't see why it would all be made up. If a bunch of people are saying one thing, odds are that someone is being honest and it only takes one person for it to be true. And given that Gira was brought up, the only reason that discussion went away is because Grimm decided to not pursue legal action (as far as I can see). And, also from what I can see, it also hasn't really hurt his career.

Seems like there's a lot of misinformation in the air here, so I thought I'd clear some things up.

-There is (and has been) a trend in people overestimating the prevalence of false reporting.
-Rape has a very low report rate compared to other crimes.
-Rape has a very low conviction rate compared to other "he-said, she-said" crimes.

It seems like a few people posting in this thread are just contributing to misinformation. I'd like to see some people cite research before making sweeping claims that rape allegations are being somehow weaponized on a mass scale by DA COMMIE SJW'S. I know, I know... it's Sputnik. Expecting people to cite shit is dumb. But if you spread rape myths in your spare time on music forums because you're an ignorant fuck, you're part of the problem.

Reporting of sexual crimes goes up probably because people are increasingly more comfortable with reporting them, not because they're becoming more evil and willing to lie about such things (for no good reason).

I don't know about the skepticism, whole thing started in the DIY Chicago group I'm a part of, definitely didn't seem like a career kill attempt so much as a warning to other members that PWR BTTM shows might not be as safe an environment as the band ostensibly presents, in the face of some increasing toxicity in the group itself.

Rape is impossible to justify. But my problem with allegations in general is that people are quick to call the accused scumbags and ruin their lives without knowing 100% that it happened. Not saying that the guy didn't do it and that it's a common thing, but it does irk me when I see it.

Yeah, victims should go to the police. But they don't, for lots of obvious reasons. What you're saying is equivalent to "Hey guys, eat your veggies they're good for you." Yeah thanks, but that's not how any of this actually works. Talking to actual victims of sexual violence it's pretty obvious why they never report it.

What I mean is if you talk the talk, then you should also walk the walk. There are very sick, very bad people who get off by assaulting and violating someone and deeply hurting them. Some commit rape, others tell lies about rape and get away with it (don't tell me it doesn't happe, cuz it does)... Both will ruin an inocent's life FOREVER, and both should be condemned, persecuted and publicly shamed.

man, just because they have to report rape doesn't always mean they can. victims are dehumanized and scared. they're scared of how they'll be perceived, scared to be blamed, scared to be put on the stand in a trial to have their life ripped apart and for the defense to blame them for the rape. you really need to look into what you're talking about before you speak so ignorantly on it.

sorry - i'm 100% not advocating not reporting. sorry if that's where our misunderstanding is coming from. i think we should creat an environment where reporting feels safe for the victim and they don't have to face this backlash of "you wanted it/it was your fault/you're lying" etc. because that's what it's like right now and it is scary as hell. i didn't like the fact you said we should push them as i believe that could very well cause more damage. ending rape culture is how we make victims feel safe. every rapist should be outed and imprisoned but it's too often that it is one and not the other.

It's a matter of what you care about most... Trying not to dig into a hurt person's terrible past so help god you somehow hurt them more than they've already been hurt in order to get the person who did it and set a precedent on how rape victims should proceed when/if it happens.

And if they can't do nothing cuz the person who rapes them is also their parent/legal couple/someone who has power over them and could hurt them more or even kill them doesn't apply to rape exclusively... All forms of abuse kind of work like that, too, and I don't see no one saying 'don't push people that get work-related abuse to talk!'

I get it, rape is a special, different from other kinds of abuse, but it's not THAT different.

@Adolf I don't see why you have to start name calling lol If you ever get sexually assaulted, I hope people don't act like you and victim blame you. I hope people are more kind than you.

Thread is a trainwreck. Imo casting judgement on either side at this point is just reactionary. The truth is we don't know either way; it is wrong to assume guilt automatically, and it's wrong to assume that the accusers are lying. I think it's important to remain reasonably sceptical, but also be supportive of people who come forward. The only thing the public can really do with a case like this is to ensure the person(s) who are potential victims press charges and let the courts handle it.

Throwing around pretty serious allegations of "rape apology" and "victim blaming" just because not everyone's ready to get the pitchforks and torches out so quickly is a bit idiculous. No internet detective is going to solve this one and just as it's unhealthy to discourage victims from coming forward, it's equally destructive to create an atmosphere of immediate persecution where someone can be brought down by an accusation alone.

I don't think it's coincidental that pop punk bands keep being accused of sexual assault.

Apparently, the bottom doesn't generate the power. Nor does it have the ability to receive enormous amounts of power. Speed is not a factor in this case.

Yea, just saw the meds. Thanks bby.

But before that I was confused cause it just looked like I got a second ban and then tried the OG account to see if it was lifted and wallah it worked again.

Everyone who has unironically used the following words in this thread raped me:

"rape apologist"
"rape culture"
"victim blaming"

Now, don't you go questioning this, lest you become what you claim to be so against.
