What do you think of the practice of bringing women's sexual history into rape trials and making her seem like a "slut" to try to prove that she wanted the rape? Does age matter? What if the victim was only eleven years.old when she was gang raped? D&D

Quoting .Colleen.:" It's obviously wrong and should not have any bearing on the case, but unfortunately, there are too many people willing to adopt the victim roll to compensate for their own poor choices."


Absolutely, and it ends up hurting true victims.

An eleven year old girl who was videotaped being gangraped by a group of adult men is a victim IMO.

It is a complete double standard, it is the ONLY crime where this happens. Take someone who has been violently assaulted and stabbed after arguing with a friend. Even if the victim had started the argument, was literally standing there shouting "do it! do it!" no one would say well he was asking for it. They wouldn't drag up the history of arguments he had with people and turn around and say well just look at him, he's so argumentitive, he's walking around arguing and provoking people non stop so really what difference does it make that he got stabbed. No that doesn't happen, it doesn't make the stabbing any less of a crime so why in a rape case?

I am NOT talking about the specific case you linked, BUT I think the info may be relevant in rape cases that are date or acquaintance rape situation. There are crazy women out there that accuse men of rape when it either didnt happen or was consensual.

It disgusts me.



I could sleep with the entire town if I wanted to. Does that suddenly mean I'm incapable of saying no? Is my body suddenly free to anyone because I've had a certain number of sexual partners?

I don't know how that attorney can sleep at night. That's nonsense and that girl endured enough pain without having to be called a "spider".

I can't open the link in the OP because I'm on my phone. Can someone on a computer link it for me? I googled 11 year old gang rape... A girl repeatedly raped by 20 f**king men??? Is that it? I just have no words for that... How on earth could that possibly be turned around to be this girls fault?



I feel sick to my stomach right now & I haven't even read any of the articles yet...



On the topic in general.... Um no, it's never okay to turn it back onto the woman. Her sexual past should have no bearing on the situation where she said "No!"

The fact that 18 or so boys/men could do this to anyone, let alone an 11 year old girl, literally makes me want to vomit.



How could NO one stick up for her? How could NO one have enough of a conscience to get the f**k out of there and call the police? How the hell can that many men justify doing something like that to ANYONE?



This is one of the most disgusting things I have ever heard.

From what I am reading, it happened on 4 or 5 different occasions? How the f**k can that happen? :( I've just watched some YouTube videos about it & people are commenting that she must have been consenting because of that... People are seriously twisted.

I hate victim blaming in any circumstance.



The nut/slut argument in any rape trial is ridiculous.
