I feel uncomfortable being judge and jury on something we only know one side to.
I think some of those allegations are horrific, and those women should be immensely proud of the difference they have made and the courage they have.
I think Alexs behaviour is symptomatic of a very broken culture of a ‘chaser’ and ‘chased’ when it comes to sex/relationships. It’s horrifying. All my girlfriends and I have had situations where we feel pressured and do things we haven’t wanted to do. This is a massive problem. The fact this has been highlighted and created a conversation is huge. I’m 24, and I’ve never heard it being talked about openly - in all our sex education etc.
I feel like he’s paid heavily. Looks like he kinda lost everything. He was a shit guy who did shit things. But if my whole life became about mistakes i’d made i’d hate it too - without any chance to put my side across…
Plus he’s right, some of those posts said ‘he flirted with me and i wasnt into it and it made me feel awkward’ or whatever - isn’t that just life? I’m sure i’ve flirted with a guy before who thinks aw hell naw and he feels awkward about it. Those posts didn’t belong amongst the serious allegations. They almost felt a bit bandwagon-y to me.
I dunno man. I think everyone has a right of reply. He seems sorry. He had some valid points. But he has done some really shitty, horrible things.
