I found this screenshot from a tweet:
Yes, I would ask for proof. For her pet dying to be equivalent to a sexual assault accusation, that would mean that she is accusing someone of murdering her pet. For sexual assault to happen, someone has to cause it. There is no equivalent in sexual assault to dying of natural causes where death can happen independently of someone causing it. Any woman who says she has been sexually assaulted is accusing a man of sexually assaulting her. That is an accusation of criminal behavior. Since we have a standard of innocent until proven guilty when it comes to crimes (unless you’re in college), we always demand evidence that a crime actually happened.
