    Are you hoping to be in on a case that means males can push a woman over & rape her because of what she wears or if she has no male owner protecting her?

    I am confused by the intent of your comment. If that is so then I think women would have to consider carrying weapons  to defend themselves against males. Perhaps that would be another cusp... defending women who have either killed or permanently injured in self defense. Perhaps in your world of easy excuses for rape women and men who find rapists vile would need defending for exacting wild justice.

    I don't think we want to go there where the strongest can be excused for indulging themselves at another human beings expense while requiring them to do nothing in either retaliation or self-defense. Is it back to the days of 'just take it'?

      I am hoping to be invloved in a case where the issues such as you raise make a difference  in cases such as this from now on.
      My comment should have been clear, but I will have another go at it.
      I want to be involved in a rape case that brings all these opinions to the table, and I want to uphold the Constitution as it pertains to an accused.
      I am not allowed to take it to heart or personally, as my profession is what it is.  What I am saying, as  a female, and a lawyer willing to defend an a accused (not convicted),  is that I want to have this conversation in court, of record, and I am hoping the way this case plays out changes the way we view rape.
      As it happens, my brother has spoken to people who are related to some of the accused.  
      boophus...I am not for rape.
      I am for fair trials.

      Democrats are on the right side of history every time.
