[continuing sarcasm] But is it really the athlete's fault that the charges make it to court or is that a failure of the system to protect the most vulnerable of our citizens, star athlete sexual predators?

Clearly in the strict Muslim countries where women where bhurkas, there must be no rape whatsoever, right?

Just after I moved out of Montreal, so 2003 or so, there was a serial rapist of elderly nuns. It was amazing how few people suggested they were dressed inappropriately.

Yeah, where women dress extremely "modestly" (which is, of course, not only Muslim countries), it's often blamed on the victim just being alone around a man or something even more ridiculous. There are lots of people in the US who would do the same given the opportunity. Before the current vp came to power I didn't know there were so many friends of friends who might. It's just shocking to hear their defence of gender restrictions that went out of style 150 years ago.
