15. Every case is different
I wouldn't force a teenager who was actually raped to testify. I have seen up close and personal such situations and I would never say such a flippant, ignorant remark:

So, I would say that this mother should get with the program. Her son is no different from any other rape victim-if they can testify, why shouldn't he?

His case, the sex was consensual, in cases where it was not, a statement such as yours would be inexcusable, even with an eye to the depths of ignorace it reveals.
