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

    l was watching a tv serial having such a theme and it made me wonder your thoughts about it. ( the scenario may consist of you (for women ),your sister, wife etc and you learn this event after it happens.

    thanks for voting.

    I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. Do you mean to ask if we would keep it secret if requested by the victim, or if offered a bribe by the offender, or something else?
    Are you referring to a legal issue, or a private and personal one?

    Most victims do stay silent, because of the hardships they typically face in trying to get the legal system to convict rapists, and because of the social ostracizing that many rape victims face. They don't stay silent because of a bribe, they stay silent because of the abuse they'll face.

    well, no, it isn't clear to me, or I would not have asked. Who is offering the money, and for what purposes? It's not that I would take a bribe in either case, but I don't understand the dynamics of the question, and what would be the purpose of the bribery: to protect the victim, or to protect the perp.

    rapist doesnt want to be put into jail and wants to go into an agreement with you ( you are victim if you are woman) or with you and your husband ,father etc

    you get lost in details lizzie there is an other option as you see which l put in the poll for you all to make your own explanations

    Ahhh- okay, that's clear now. I thought you were asking as a third party to the crime.
    I thought you were asking if we, as third-party witnesses, would lie about a rape that we were aware of.
    You meant if we were the victim ourselves.
    That puts an entirely different light on the situation. If I am the victim, and I am the one who would be either pressing charges, or dropping it, it would probably depend on my financial status, to a great degree. If I was extremely poor, I would probably be able to rationalize dropping it in my own mind.

    That is entirely different from my lying if the victim were my friend or family, and the perp was bribing me as a legal witness.

    You don't need to feel empathy with it- I just understand how someone who was really hard up could drop the matter altogether, if their situation was bad enough. I'm not saying it's right, or that I agree with it, but I DO understand it.
