ellensama asked: Hey I just wanted to clear up that Michael is not an abuser. With his ex when she stated when the abuse took place she was at a film fest with him. She was seen after it with none of the injuries she claimed happen to her and that would have been very viable. She has also done this before with another ex of hers. Claimed abuse, lied, and dropped the charges quickly after. I'm sorry you are getting a bad anon that is being rude and has no right to call you such names.
look, i actually do know the story, i am aware of the facts such as they are, but i don’t believe that having reported abuse in a previous relationship or dropping charges of abuse are sufficient grounds to say someone has not been abused. in fact, both of those things happen a lot. many women have had multiple abusers in their lives; many women have dropped charges against abusers for a variety of reasons, and those reasons almost never include “because she’s lying.” (look it up; research has been done on this subject.) and i’m really not sure anyone is qualified to say whether she looks sufficiently injured enough to have been abused. are you her? are you her doctor? then i’m not sure what you or a tabloid or a gossip blog really knows.
all that aside: i am not a court of law, i don’t have to hold someone innocent until proven guilty. i am not going to ruin rich and famous actor michael fassbender’s life by believing he is an abuser. he’ll be okay. yet it seems that every time a woman says she believes or knows a man to be an abuser or a rapist, someone jumps in to shut her up. i haven’t got any power, i’m not making some kind of legal claim, i’m just someone with a blog who chooses to believe the accusations made by women against famous and powerful men, because time and time again we’ve been shown that famous and powerful men think they can get away with almost anything, and almost always do.
