This is what comes of a lack of standards, unfortunately. One side is (Justifiably, imo) worried the victim will be blamed/brushed aside in favor of some "good 'ol boys" network.
The other side is terrified of the backlash resulting from past nepotism, which forces them to the extreme of leaving absolutely no doubt that they're taking victim allegations seriously.
Any response gets treated with skepicism, so they err on the side of overcompensation.
People lie, nobody trusts anybodies motives, and a history of blaming the victim exists, and now we have to live with the fallout. Which will probably involve some combination of sacrificial lambs, nepotism for the worthy, more lying, more anger, and more overcompensation against the next lamb.
Your Lord knows very well what is in your heart. Your soul suffices this day as a reckoner against you. I need no witnesses. You do not listen to your soul, but listen instead to your anger and your rage.
