Buzzfeed: "Why I Don't Want To Hear Both Sides Of Rape Cases"

   Yeah, this is about as bad as you'd imagine. Archive.Today'd link, so don't worry about giving Buzzfeed hits.
   One of the things we get here is an argument we're seeing over and over in the Rolling Stone dead-enders: rape survivors can't be expected to remember every little detail correctly. This is, obviously, a straw man. No one I've read criticized Jackie's story because small details were a little bit wrong. The problem was that basically the whole thing was radically implausible. This "tiny details" argument is a patent straw man.
