    Or not.
    I wasn't there obviously but from what I can tell she would have never become sexually active in the first place had not she been taken advantage of while unconscious by someone she cared deeply about. Once that line had already been crossed, like many young ladies who I hear have had similar experiences, she then lost her will to stay true to her convictions and made poor choices.

    Its amazing to me when people seem to only have the ability to see the world through their political disposition. I'm not trying to single out any particular side because I see it on every side when predictably we assign right and wrong by who's political camp are the subjects identified. David Letterman makes a joke on TV and the conservatives demand he be fired. Rush Limbaugh makes a similar joke in the 1990s except his was every day and about a real criminal prosecution and the same people spend every afternoon laughing around the radio. Bristol Palin could be anyone's daughter, sister or niece. Young ladies experience this type of thing from every background. Seeing a young lady who at best was treated badly by someone she loved, continues to be treated badly and wanting her to do well after an planned pregnancy should be above the conservative vs. liberal conflict in America. I'm personally pleased to see her deal with the circumstances, move on with her life and encourage other young ladies who have had similar challenges.

    Just checking.
    Yeah, because the lunatics on the Far Right haven't blamed Obama for anything. Hell, half of them think he's the anti-christ.

    Nearly every sexually active young girl who gets pregnant was either raped or 'was taken advantage of' while she was drunk. Apparently none of them ever have sex willingly, so I guess Bristol is just another in a long line of poor unfortunate victims. Woe is us.

    True but I take the position that two wrongs don't make a right and being the bigger person(s) only improves our stature.

    I don't think she became pregnant while being taken advantage of. I do think she was taken advantage of initially however.

    If you have some close female friends who trust you enough to confide in you on whether they had ever been sexually exploited at some point in their lives. Maybe ladies are more comfortable sharing deeply personal things with me but I did and I was completely shocked at the high number.

    Yes. Because then they might actually be gullible enough to believe cock and bull stories about a teenage girl having sex when she's unconscious and because she liked it so much (quite the trick that one can like something they did while asleep) they wanted more.

    Who's fooling whom here?

    That's just mean. Nobody said she continued being sexually active "because she liked it so much". She LOVED the guy, wanted to wait until they were married but that didn't happen allegedly (but in fairness only they know for sure) due to no fault of her own so she made the bad choice to not wait and became pregnant.
