It's already been established several times over in this thread that the woman has the automatic advantage.
In the state where I reside, the woman gets the benefit of the doubt 99.9% of the time....it's also a state where young women seek to get pregnant as
soon as possible in order to insure child support payments.
In fact, I daresay I haven't met a young man in his twenties here who isn't a father or paying child support. Amazingly, most of the young women have
no desire to be mothers outside of the welfare benefits, checks and attention. More often than not, the man has to gain custody of his children
because "mommy" doesn't want to stop partying.
So when a rape case is brought to trial in this state, a good percentage of them are with underage girls to begin with.
Is alcohol involved a good percentage of the time? You bet it is. Heck, a lot of the younger mothers (in their 30's with teenagers) even buy the beer
or liquor for house parties to make sure their daughter gets pregnant as quickly as possible so they can get on the public dole and start receiving
child support to help "with the bills".
But still, the young man is almost always held accountable, unfairly so, in my opinion.
When are we going to expect some decorum and discretion on the part of young women instead of continuing to tell them they can continue their reckless
behavior without bearing any responsibility for their own actions?
I only know of one young lady locally who has been the victim of a forcible rape against her will....the rest, well the "rape" is more of a vindictive
Please rest assured, I know this type of behavior isn't across the board in every state or small community, but it certainly runs rampant in the area
which I live....which is one reason for my perceived hostility on how easy it is to indite a young man when it comes down to "consent".
I've seen it abused far too often by a lot of local females, and the trend shows no signs of letting up anytime soon.
Such is the reason for my concern on this issue.
