46. I'm not trying to "kill the messenger"

I'm not trying to "kill the messenger", I just don't understand your perspective.

Men are not beasts - they are human beings quite capable of controlling themselves, some just choose not to. The crime was committed by the rapist and he alone is responsible. If the judge commented on how she talked and how she dressed, that's just a form of victim-blaming. A 14 year old cannot consent to sex no matter how she behaves and any adult man (especially a judge!) should know that.

I'm sorry we can't see eye-to-eye. It's obvious that we both agree on the main point - that what happened was a tragedy.
