Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every two minutes, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, and one-in-two rape victims are under age 18. In a national survey, 27.7 percent of college women reported a sexual experience since the age of 14 that met the legal definition of rape or attempted rape. To what can we ascribe such a shocking increase in violence against women?
That’s easy. A broad redefinition of the rape crime to include ex post facto regrets and a failure to provide written assent, combined with a reduced sense of responsibility on the part of young American women.
Only a completely clueless space cadet would say: “I think I should be able to get drunk and pass out at a fraternity and have nothing happen.” I’m sure Israeli parents think their kids should be able to board public transportation without worrying about it blowing up too. Some people are good and will not harm you no matter what provocation you offer them. Some people are bad and will prey upon you the first chance they get. Accept the concept and behave accordingly, depending on the situation.
The Rabbi also happens to leave out the minor fact that a sizeable percentage of criminal rape reports are false and are confirmed by the supposed victim to be have been manufactured by her.
