Pocket Ninja: Perhaps the universities could issue some sort of letter, a Greek letter, maybe, to women are bringing rape charges. The women could then wear those letters as a way of raising awareness of the profound issues surrounding rape that exist on campus. This could become an invaluable way for institutions of higher learning to help their students learn how to navigate complicated issues of adult sexuality, and also help young men know which women really mean "no" when they say it. There could even be a slogan: See a letter on her chest, listen to her request. It could all help reduce a lot of needless suffering.
DerAppie: hardinparamedic: DerAppie: /seriously, why are men responsible while the woman is seen as the victim?Might have to do with the fact that rape is a crime of power and control being generally accepted by the psychiatric community at large as the motivation, and not because the guy hasn't had his balls drained in the last few weeks.DerAppie: If an 19 year old female goes to a party and has an undefined number of beers and then accepts the offer for sex from one of the male attending the party (who is also drunk) she doesn't get to claim rape as far as I'm concerned. Assuming no person slipped her something without her knowledge ofcourse. Any defense against this kind if "rape" would be: "But I was drunk to therefore she raped me." But since you'd get laughed out of the courtroom all the way to jail we'll never see that happen.Maybe, and this is JUST a maybe here, knowing that the legal system is stacked against you to begin with, you shouldn't go fark random drunk girls who your knowledge of them is that they've giggled for twenty minutes over their beer.I know. Keeping it in your pants is such a WEIRD concept.Yes, because drunk people are so well known for their well thought out actions. Being drunk seriously impairs your ability to judge the level of impairment in others. So once again, if a drunk man and a drunk woman have sex, why should the woman be the victim of rape and the man a rapist? If it is the man's responsibility to keep it in his pants, why isn't it the woman's responsibility to keep her panties on?Once again, only applicable when said impairment is the consequence of the person's own decision.
hardinparamedic: lordaction: When you don't have facts I guess you have to attack the individual.When the individual is an absurd liar with a history of posting things that would make even the most simple of person laugh in their face, and their profile, up until last week was filled with bizarre religious scripture, yes.
quickdraw: BarkingUnicorn: Women who say, "It's men's problem... I shouldn't have to change..." remind me of the granny who totaled my car years ago.If you wanted to rape her then yes I would say that is your problem.
the801: frat boys already have a lot of experience with rape; i say we leave it to the pros.ftfa: "The two processes are not mutually exclusive: survivors can take action through both their college disciplinary systems and the criminal justice system and, indeed, colleges should inform and educate them about their right to do so. "i feel especially sorry for the ones who didn't survive...and i so don't want to sound 'blame the victim' here, 'cause rape is bad and rapists are responsible, but maybe "hey lets go to a frat party tonight! they have tons of booze, which we're mostly pretty inexperienced with, and they usually have some great drugs, and they're mostly good looking guys we would get to party with, and our late-adolescent sexual desires are aroused by the idea of partying with these good looking guys who will pay a lot of attention to us and give us free booze and drinks. and we sure don't want to have sex tonight, just a good time. par-tay!" isn't a wise choice when looking to avoid getting raped?
