So continuing with this logic....
The US is the most sexually repressed nation in the West.
The US has a high rape rate.
Therefore, rape is caused by sexual repression and people who rape are sexually repressed.
Now... let's name the people who are "sexually repressed" and those will be the people committing the rapes in this country. Right?
If that sounds silly to you -- it is.

noun | \l i v b a t\ : preposterous nonsense, often demagogic, a major political figure (esp. Liberal) or media personality would say hoping to have it picked up and repeated by Low Information Voters in order to become conventional wisdom.
What's amazing about it is that we have already discussed the main factor they share too, and somehow you couldn't make that out either.
This is an incredible thread, seriously. But then, threads about rape always are.
Here's Senator Kirsten Gillibrand back on the 24th warning that we should not blame the " victim " even after it was shown her story was false.
Gillibrand: Avoid "victim blaming" in UVA rape story
But Gillibrand said the ire over the case shouldn't shift blame onto victims, who already have a hard time coming forward to authorities.
"Victim blaming or shining the spotlight on her for coming forward is not the right approach," Gillibrand said on "The Capitol Pressroom," a public radio show in Albany. "In fact, what we have to focus on is how do we keep these campuses safe? How do we have better trained personnel on campuses so they can tell a survivor what her options are and so they can have all the facts?"
I wonder what Sen Kirsten Gillbrand thinks now ? Or if she still thinks we shouldn't blame the victim ( the girl who lied )
Also the Rolling Stone Reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely " apologized " but not to the boys that were charged with rape.
" If no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else ? "
