this is what people that constantly agitate for going overboard in the pursuit of ending discrimination do not understand - you leave the door wide open for trolls and insincere people to exploit the agenda for their own personal gain

look at what the notion of "believe women" has done, its now empowered many unscrupulous women to feign victimhood for personal gain because they know that they now have a cloak of invulnerability, ironically because of their sex from people who are trying to end sexism... its mindbogglingly incoherent

The thing that some people don't understand is that there's a big gap between the extremes.  

"Believe women" doesn't mean believe every single woman regardless of their claims.  No one has claimed that woman's claims are a replacement for investigation.  The point is that someone's claims shouldn't simply be dismissed, (nor believed without evidence) but investigated.  

But the term "Believe women" is an extreme on itself that only focusses on one part of the problem as it only envelops one gender.

And if a term focusses on a problem that is common for both genders but chooses to only focus on one side of it then it can even be considered sexist,and it is a fractured point to make when you start it with dividing people.

Edit: everyone knows that people claims should not simple be dismissed nor believed without evidence but investigated but that is only logical and does not connect to the separation of genders within that term you defend so can you atleast explain why a "believe women" or a believe men" is needed but not just "believe people" ?
