Yes, far too often women who are sexually assaulted are disbelieved. Which is why I understand and see the reasoning behind the "I Believe Women" slogan. It is a powerful statement. It is a strong political position. It is a rhetorical tool, but is not an actual, automatic truth. If we see it as such, it is an inherently tyrannical position that has historically been used to imprison and murder poor men of colour and Indigenous men. For these reasons I much prefer "I Listen to Women."
