  •  The reason why (4+ / 0-)

    Acquaintance rape can't get any traction is because a heckuva lot of men out there have done it, know it's wrong deep down, but don't want to admit it.

    I don't know if I know a woman who has never been "taken advantage of" in a vulnerable situation, in whatever way that vulnerability presents itself.

    And I'm sorry, but fuck anybody who criticizes the woman in this story for inviting the guy in. She worked with him for Christ sake. You think that no one would go that far, that you can handle it. It's not until you're really being aggressed that you realize how strong he is and all moral norms are out the window.

    The "rape" culture that is talked about is actually the perpetuated culture of women as property. The endless parade of womb regulation only reinforces that belief. I'm sick of it. I'm glad these sociopaths in Steubenville are paying for their crime and I can only hope it will make them better people.
