College Activism Needs to Get Better Than This Student Accusing Dozens of Peers of Rape

Article here. Excerpt:

'Let me say this right off the bat: Publicly calling people rapists is a serious, potentially damning accusation that has the capacity to ruin innocent people’s lives. It also feels inappropriate at best to mention alleged “rapists” and “fetishistic” men in the same breath, as pointed out by someone who was named on the list and spoke with Babe about the events. That being said, when I first heard this happened, I thought Elizabeth was brave to disseminate a list of names of potential abusers. More than that, I loved the diligence required to confirm with every last one of the survivors who had been abused that the names should be published so that others might be spared.

Assuming Elizabeth had that level of follow-through was my mistake.'
