Your points on the weaponisation of safe-space culture and use of language to shift the burden onto the victim and shame her and the conflation of intent with abuse are so spot on. I think however in circumstances where Ben is maintaining their innocence, and whilst bearing in mind systemic belief in the victim should be tantamount, their lack of apology/accept accountability is hardly surprising. The implicit use of language as a means of degrading the victim is condemnable but I would disagree that failure to apologise is a critique in and of itself given they maintain their innocence, not that one should agree that they are of course. Great post.
