    I'm saying that if a woman is raped, and the guy pays her to shut up.... if she accepts that money then she just accepted money in exchange for sex: making her a hooker.

    For that reason, I think it's wrong.

    Since I don't believe in prostitution, I voted "no."

    By taking the money, she's basically agreed to the act. So it's sex in exchange for money.

    Re: Would you stay silent on rape if you were offered much money ?

    real rape is a heinous and horrendous crime, one of the lowest and i have gone on record many times saying i support use of deadly force to prevent rapes and I support the option of the death penalty in rape cases.

    the issue is that history and culture make rape a very muddy area.

    For many years of our history rape wasnt looked at as that serious and husbands could legally rape thier wives etc etc

    Then thier was always the public trial part, they are a slut, they were asking for it etc etc

    Now we have made improvements in those areas but now we have something almost just as disgusting and that is false rape reports, this AGAIN adds much drama to an area of already high tensions and suspicions and its a damn shame. Hell many people dont even agree on what rape is, i mean there are some cases everybody agrees on and then there are others many do not.

    Anyway im GUESSING the question is would i stay silent if i were a victim of a clearly real rape and offered hush money . . . .
    personally no, i would not. I would never do it because i would feel horrible if the person was a serial rapist and raped again.

    My answer, I would take every penny I could get from this scumbag...and then turn him in anyway.

    If for no other reason then I do not want to live with the guilt if this lowlife strikes again and I did not at least try to stop him.

    It would have been easy to write this:

    Pretend you are a woman, and you were raped by a stranger. The stranger offers you a large sum of money to keep quiet and not press charges. Would you take the money, or would you go ahead with legal proceedings?

    With your question, I couldn't tell who was offered money, and by whom exactly, if you meant this was a personal matter, or if it was a legal matter. Any of the above are possible. What if your son raped your daughter? How would you handle it? Would you press legal charges, or would you try to keep it a family matter? Do you see what I'm getting at? These questions have different ramifications, both at the personal level, and at the level of legal proceedings. If the woman who was raped was destitute, and was offered $50,000 to keep quiet, because the rapist was a well-know judge, she might be tempted to take the money.
