I did answer it....read post 77.
My sentiment exactly. and I am very glad we agree. These days there are so many technological proofs that a rapist might not get by. If his DNA has ever been entered into the data base, it is getting harder and harder for bad people to get by with bad things.
Yes that is a hazard for women, but sometimes a man is accused of a rape he did not commit, and that is a hazard for men, especially if the man in question has several sexual partners. I had a friend who came to my house one day, and told me that he had been charged with raping his step daughter, and wanted to know what I would do. I told him if he was not guilty, I would rather rot in hell than enter a plea to something I did not do. Two weeks later he was at my house, and had entered a plea of no contest to the charge. I think that conclusion was pretty much self explanatory. Needless to say I have seen very little of him since.
Some people just don't seem to care that there are men out there that this does happen to. Women can be pretty vindictive, and I know there have been men that have suffered because of it. I don't think there's a lot of women that would do this, but to think women are always the victims is absurd.
BTW, back on topic....what is the "lesson" of the Book of Job except-
God saying "I'm God...if I want to ruin yuor life utterly, over a bet with the Devil, who the heck are you to criticize me. Did you make termites and tulips, you little pipsqueak!"?
Yes CJ, many men are behind bars, because a woman was willing to lie, and I don't understand why anyone would do that, but it does happen. There was a man on TV a few days back who was released after several years because of a case of miss-identity . And DNA was what got him released. So this is a tremendous tool to have in rape cases. Nothing will stop malicious prosecutions if a woman is willing to lie. So men are victims of rape too.
Forget it Gordo...not interested anymore. You've beat this subject to death with your stupid questions.
Carol...I'll bet you consider ANY questions that aren't supportive or positive about the Bible to be "stupid".
Especially the ones you have trouble answering.
You didn't answer it....you have no idea why he was sent away for ten years but you're telling me he was innocent. Then you don't know if she was torn, if his DNA was there....he was just getting screwed by some woman. You seem to accept other people's words without question.
Did you even read what I wrote before you responded to me?
And the same thing can be said about any crime.,,anyone could lie. I could say you mugged me, I could say you broke into my house, I could say you tried to blackmail me,p. Y ou want to argue about the rare cases of men being falsely accused of rape, I rather focus in the millions of women who have been ignored when they were raped. I know there are children who lie about child abuse, but I would rather focus on the children who are abuses. We learn about people by the side of the argument they choose,
DNA is convenient in all crimes, that is why I so oppose the death penalty, because of the people who died before DNA and were innocent.
You're not even being honest about what is in the story of Job. Poking those imaginary holes again.
Who do you think lies more , rape victims or rapists?
There are always people who will lie to get people in trouble....all crimes. But of course I could count on you to defend men and call women vindictive....do you think the one In Four women who are victims of assault are just vindictive? Of course men can't be vindictive, only women. Never said women are the only victims of sexual assault, men are also but most of the time men are the perpetrators ...probably 95% of the time???but of course it is women who are vindictive
Lol...I notice how often you admit you are wrong. You're not right , so why would I admit it? I've come to expect that disagreeing with you is the fault of the person who disagrees with you and you have to get bitchy and personal. Maybe I think you're never right! Seems you think I am always wrong
See ya around Renee....you're not worth wasting my breath on.
You have made some great points, and you will get no argument from me. But we were talking about rape. If I accused you of a crime falsely, and was willing to lie about it, anyone could end up behind bars, and had never done anything to deserve it. And that is the point.
That is rarely true in the case of rape. Most rapists get off bečause of inconclusive evidence. As I said I used to accompany rape victims to court and for it to get to trial, there has to be more than she said, he said and in most cases he walks. I have seen women abused again by the court system....it is assumed she is lying....not him! That is why women don't report rape, men report it even less.
A response when one can't admit she is wrong,,,,,you have no breath left to waste, it's all hot air. Bye
Renee, there is no man on this planet that will defend women any more than I will. But you are getting defensive about stuff that you brought up from left field. And either sex can and will lie. I have often said that I know people who will lie when the truth wouldn't hurt. Again both sexes are capable of lying. I quit law enforcement because I could not get justice for a rape victim. So if you think I don't know how women are mistreated, then I don't know what I can say to convince you that I am on your side.
