Re: “Oakland Counseling Guru Accused of Sexual Assault

I speak up now on behalf of Steve Bearman. This story does not reflect his side of things and paints him out to be an evildoer wanting to hurt innocent people. I am skeptical that is how it actually is. The Steve Bearman I know is a loving and caring human being and would have no need or desire to hurt anyone just to get off sexually. He has many people willing to have sex with him and it makes absolutely no sense that he would need to drug anybody. Also, he is a conscious person and he would not want someone to do anything against their will.

Since this is so contradicting to his nature that most of us know as gentle and kind, maybe it would be helpful to ask ourselves what other motives would these women have? Money and jealousy and rejection are often reasons why someone might make false claims or only remember something the way they want to in order to feel better.

False rape claims are not uncommon. Given the amount of money these women may have believed they could get by suing Bearman, we cannot ignore the possibility of Steve even being set up. It happens to the best people. Steve is clever about some things and naive about some others. He wants to see the best in people and has given his life to serving others and creating intentionally loving community.

He may be gulty of trusting too easily and taking drugs and throwing sex parties. But he is not the sinister narcissist and rapist this article paints him to be and it falls on these women to prove their allegations. And I question that they are allowed to remain anonymous while Steve must bear the weight of all this hatred and all we have are the words of these people. We need to hear the whole story and refrain from lynching this man and making him a scapegoat for all the pain and suffering in the world. He is a human being not a monster.
