  •  Actually she's right. (8+ / 0-)

    I was a rape crisis counselor for a couple of years and I also interviewed prosecutors for articles. They told me it's damned hard to get a rape conviction because some women don't ant to face the fact that they or their daughter could be the one in the witness chair testifying about what was done to her.  Therefore they distance themselves from the victim by telling themselves she's a drunken slut.  My bet is that sort of woman tends to be fundy Christian where they are very harsh critics of the behavior of others who don't fit their standard of proper submissive female behavior--and if a girls drinks, to them she's asking for it. Even now, 30 years later, I know people who think that way in the rural South. Not everyone, but ONE person is enough to hang a jury.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
