Does anyone know why the Washington Post doesn't name the names of the two accusers - one alleging racism and one hazing. I don't get why they don't have to play in the big leagues with their names behind an accusation.
I know journalists don't name names when sexual assault is alleged but have never heard of it in these type of cases.
The not naming of names in sexual assault to me is stupidity. It actual is sexist against women. It implies that the woman alleging the assault has something to be ashamed of.
If you were the victim of a crime or something bad, there should be nothing wrong with your name being out there.
Women get angry and make up stuff, way more than "the powers that be" are going to admit to, as we've seen with all the false rape claims lately (UVA, etc). Women who are telling lies to get revenge want to do it in a vague way, ideally that doesn't expose their own identity, so they don't get ruined when it turns out to be lies.
