In my question Do an overwhelming majority of rapes not involve relatives? , I asked about a factual claim (about who engages in sexual abuse) which has been used to support an abhorrent opinion (that women should not meet men without a male relative present).
I could have made my question merely mention the advocacy group which was cited as the source of the claim, but that could have taken away some of the notability and relevance of the claim.
Does asking about a factual claim act as an endorsement of either a person making a claim, or the argument the claim is being used in? Or to put it another way, should users avoid asking questions where the context of the claim is unsavoury?
Related question: Non notable claims, made only on hate and or conspiracy sites, should be deleted , which seems to advocate treating questions differently depending on whether those who assert the claims asked about are unsavoury.
