You know, I have to admit that I think this is a big to-do about nothing. I'm happy to jump all over someone who says something stupid like "legitimate rape". But this? This was just a father warning his son, with a poor choice of words, that some girls will claim rape when it wasn't and to be careful not to wind up in that situation. And, unfortunately, it's true that some girls will. It's not true *often*, but it is true. And it *can* ruin a young boy's life through no fault of his own.

I'll be happy to jump his case if he says "some girls are easy to rape". But that isn't what he said, or what he meant. And I'll wait to attack the next honestly awful thing he says rather than waste energy on this which was merely bad phrasing.

My two cents,
