SIO236: Honestly Evaluating the Biden Accusation

Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault by Tara Reade, with the alleged incident taking place in 1993 when she worked for him. In my opinion, there has been a tremendous amount of bad faith in how this has been talked about my many outlets. This story has consumed my brain and I haven’t been able to think of anything else for a few days, so I have just felt I had to do my best to lend an objective voice to a very charged topic. I know I’m just another privileged dude opining, but I believe I’ve shown that I take accusations very seriously and am willing to kill my heroes. With all that in mind, what follows is likely convoluted and circuitous, but that’s because my feelings on this have been all over the place. I hope you find it useful.
