Rapists are the ones who bring shame to the family, not the victims.
Many women in our country who are sexually assaulted, fear coming forward, because of the attitude that she did something to make it happen. I know people who think that a women who comes forward is lying. In many cases, if a woman reports sexually harassment, she has the threat of retaliation and people saying it is all about money or there is something emotionally wrong. Out of thousands of cases, there might be a couple of cases that abuse the system, but you have those that use these cases as a way to discredit every women who has the courage to come forward. These misogynist beliefs can only change through education and electing people that believe in equality and do not have the under lying belief that boys will be boys. As in India, many men in the United States are against violence and sexual harassment towards women, but we still have those that feel it is okay to demean another human being.
Convictions for any rape, murder, crimes against children, and some egregious felonies should be default death sentences. Our system is milktoast on monstrous felons. Liberals think these types deserve a second chance, rehab, etc. Baloney.
