Well, I don’t get the point she is trying to make.
Did max level specific or general accusations, that had the potential for destroying their lives, against anyone? Ford did.
I’m not even sure he demanded Ford prove her claims, but based on neptune’s comment, she obviously objects to any such insistence, no matter who expresses it.
Clearly, she is someone who believes that a woman’s uncorroborated accusation is sufficient to establish the guilt of the accused. This is antithetical to American values of justice. It is a wrongheaded and dangerous position, but obviously she is not alone in giving free reign to her id on this (and other) topics.
I believe max, but that’s immaterial. There is absolutely no reasonable “need” for max to “prove” his claim. Neptune only believes there is because she is wed to a fevered anger that has led her to adopt a position that is antithetical to American values of justice and fairness, and has identified max as an enemy of that position (and, absurdly,women)
I’m not sure what Izzy believes other than he must do whatever he can, tell whatever lies he can concoct, to strike out at those he has decided must pay for his misery.
If max had named those he claims abused him as a child, and he has insisted that Ford must prove her accusations, then neptune’s demand would not, at all, be inappropriate. I may not be sure about the latter, but I am certain about the former. Max is a big boy, he isn’t going to fall apart because of possibly insensitive remarks from people who don’t believe him. I’ve no doubt that he is not interested in delving further into the traumas of his past, but if
memories of them, and insensitive comments about them were going to reduce him to a human puddle, he wouldn’t have written about them.
Neptune’s “sin” is not insensitivity, it is incoherence and an illiberal mindset.
Not being “nice” is nothing compared to not supporting the rule of law.
