"forensically" sounds like hyperbole. However, I believe the reason is that some people have claimed rape only for it to emerge that messages they had sent showed that they had consented to the encounter. I seem to remember in one case messages showed that the complainant had a history of this behaviour.

I understand that it is distressing for genuine victims but allowing people to make false allegations just creates a new set of victims.
