    That still does not make it right to blame the investigators or those that advised leaving/reporting the abuse in a timely manner. Rather than concentrate on blaming the investigators, she should instead advise others not to endure abuse as she did and seek help immediately. To help end something, like abusive relationships or date rape, one must act quickly and decisively, not wait years to decide that help is needed.

    re: Ending Rape On Campus[W 228]

    Another significant issue that a friend reading over my shoulder brought up: consider the implications on the young man she dated. My friend is trying to hire a bunch of employees right now for summer work and one thing he does is check Facebook. Like many employers.

    Now consider that this kid's name is attached to hers and now she is in the news. National news, and with the Internet that really just means global. He is now a convicted rapist without a trial. Good job CNN.

    You know as I have gotten older...and the Internet/social media has too...I am starting to realize how bad it actually is.

    really depends on her definition of coercion. By some statements I read concerning the subject, that could be as little as giving a massage to your partner with the intent of getting them into the mood.

    And that is my rub I think. If it were an abusive relationship ok. But we don't know. Cnn convicted this kid without the whole story.

    Damn, and I'm the sadist? Giving it, Chris. Not receiving.

    I should have mentioned that even stat rape necessitates actual sex in order to qualify.

    The media are scum. Don't worry, though. They're going down too.

    I am not blaming any one. Whether the investigation was done right or not I have no way of judging. She could be absolutely correct that the investigation was poorly done. I think we should stop jumping to conclusions about one case.

    Without knowing what is being referred to in this case it is impossible to judge.
