    The fact that a woman was on top does not change the fact that she can get raped.

    When you are forced to get on top...

    A misogynist cokehead who automatically assumes a rape victim is at fault for being raped has no business being anywhere near the bench.:mad: This man embodies much that is wrong with Texas and the south in general.

    I am not agreeing with the judge or anything, but don't most rapes take place with the man being in a forceful position? Honestly never heard of this come to question. However, I do think it is bad for a judge to give an opinion like this to a rape victim.

    If you bother to read the article or the judge's comments, you realize he was trying to reconcile the witness' testimony with somewhat inconsistent physical evidence presented...generally a good idea when the defendant is facing a possible life sentence, though he was admittedly less than tactful. Do you really think it's better to spare someone's feelings than to make absolutely sure you're imprisoning the correct person for the crime committed?


    Go fuck yourself, you stupid cunt.

    Sweet Jesus, even your opinions are regurgitated?

    At any rate, the judge sentenced the man for it so clearly he doesn't hold the victim responsible. He says he just wanted clarification on the events and admits it could have been done better.

    What's wrong is the title of that article. It's completely misleading.

    The only people who will ever really know the truth of the rape are him and her.

    I think the judge was justified in asking the question. OK, he could have been a little more tactful about it, but it was a valid question and gave him additional information which hadn't come out during the course of the trial. It's the sort of question just about everyone would be thinking of asking and also helped to dispel any doubts as to the validity of the verdict.

    Asking a question like that doesn't make a judge a misogynist. It shows that he has a good idea of how people's minds work.
