Whether you’re male or female, young or old, wealthy or poor…. Rapists don’t discriminate.
From teachers and priests to mothers, fathers, family, strangers and gangs…. They have all been convicted of rape.
However, what happens when something of such a sensitive nature gets misinterpreted, miscommunicated…lied about?
When someone is accused of rape, it ruins them. There is no doubt that a right minded person would have a lower opinion of an accused rapist. Even if they have not yet been convicted.
Sex whilst under the influence is considered rape. How many people know actually think about this when they go out for a big night, and bring home that girl or guy they danced with at the nightclub?
But wouldn’t someone, if they were able to give known consent, even whilst under the influence, not see this as rape? (However regretful it might seem in the morning).
An article about the ADFA accusations say that the Commodore Kafer has been asked to stand down.
There are rumours circulating about “Kate” from ADFA that I don’t want to believe, but the source is pretty reliable.
“Kate”, as she is being called, is the girl that has accused the guy she had sex with of broadcasting the encounter over the internet, via skype.
My source tells me that “Kate” has willingly had sex videos distributed before, and is well-known for being promiscuous on ADFA campus.
My source tells me that since this story came out, people in the defence force have had at least four meetings with their seniors, to ensure there is not this kind of culture, and to ensure that if anyone is experiencing this kind of thing to come straight forward, not to hide it, not deal with it themselves. This illustrates to me that the ‘culture’ that keeps being referred to in news stories are being blown out of proportion (who would have thought the media did that? [says the Journalism student])
