I’ve been falsely accused. It wasn’t a big deal. Keeping myself out of bad situations made the claim obviously as ridiculous as it was. Know who you work with, know who you party with, know who you sleep with. Don’t do stupid sh*t, especially don’t put yourself in a place with no witnesses with someone you don’t know. That goes for men and women. Don’t sleep with coworkers, no matter your professional relationship to them [they work in a different dept from you, in a different building] — that’s just dumb.
I’d rather some daft person falsely accuse me of this sort of thing [because I keep an open door policy, and I strictly adhere to consent all the time every time] than any one woman be raped or harassed.
