There is some truth to what Jim said. As a man, you'd better not get accused of sexual misconduct. Whether it is true or not is inconsequential to the fact that you will be financially ruined, take severe damage to your career and that you have a fairly high chance of going to prison for a substantial time.

And if you are a woman who is planning on accusing a man of rape, you had better be a 60 year old virgin nun living in a convent, else you risk having your entire sexual history paraded out for the court to judge and condemn. If you happen to be on the pill, obviously you are expecting to have sex. If you made yourself attractive for a date, obviously you were hoping to have sex. If you were attacked in an undesirable part of town, what were you thinking being there in the first place? And it goes without saying that having an occupation like being a stripper means you are fair game to all men at all times. Silly women...

Just once I'd like to see a man press charges against a robber and have the defense attorney give a speech to the jury about how he should have expected nothing less than being robbed after spending a night on the town, flashing a hefty bankroll and expensive jewelry to anyone who could see it. Surely he was asking to be robbed and why punish the poor little man who was powerless to resist such temptation?
