“Rape. A crime where most of the accused (men) are really innocent.”

One accused innocent is too many, but MOST are innocent??

Please...

It says to me "I was raped and I'm tired of feeling shame about it."

To everyone else it says "Avoid me unless you want to engage in a nice, pleasant conversation about rape."

I would guess that the response of most would be avoidance, if only because of what this shirt conveys about the wearer's mental state.

Corrina says when she was raped years ago, she didn't even understand exactly what had happened.

She may have only come to "understand" that she was raped after being indoctrinated into whackjjob feminism. Depending on how deep into left-wing feminism you get, rape can be defined as consensual sex that the woman later regrets. I once dated a hard-core feminist who showed me some truly frightening materials that explained how even if a woman believes that sex is consensual at the time; if she later comes to believe that she was unfairly coerced into the act (read: seduced), then that is rape and the man should be sent to prison. The most left-wing feminists essentially believe that men should be sent to prison solely on the word of any woman that regrets a sexual encounter for any reason.

Seems like it is merely a way to force other people you don't know to be uneasy in your presence. It sets the agenda for what you want them to think about. Forces it. It's an aggressive and pushy, almost arrogant attitude.

BINGO

Yes. It suggests that they aren't just damaged...they're ruined. Why would you want some stranger's first impression of you to be that you're the raped girl?

This is sick! I can just imagine what would go through the mind of a rapist when he saw the t-shirt.

(ummm she must have liked it because she is advertising)

and one other time he tried to force himself on me and I was able to stop him. That time he apologized and blamed drinking. The second time a few weeks later I could not stop him.

You were in this creep's company A SECOND TIME? Are you for real?

Maybe she didn’t understand because she was 5 years old when the rape occurred.

One out of three is not most. Keep backtracking and your view may someday approach reality upon this subject.

But yes, it was a travesty that “Crystal Gail Mangum” the “Durham Dirt-bag” was not charged with filing a false report.

Nowadays with DNA scans, vaginal trauma, skin under fingernails, signs of force; it is a lot harder to make a rape charge stick against an innocent man.

Who said anything about making rape charges stick?

Just the accusation alone is enough to ruin a man. And when charges of rape are filed as an act of spite or to retaliate, then a man is doomed.

He must hire an attorney, he must face the shame of being accused of rape - his whole life has been turned upside down.

And in the meantime, she gets to hide behind a secret wall of anonomynity and throw stones.

That’s why it is imperative that those who cry rape must be publicly named.

It will drive away the drunk whores like Mangum. And it will empower the true rape victims.

What I meant by ‘raise awareness’ is not that people have no idea that rape occurs, but that society in general tends to ‘sweep it under the rug’ and pretend it doesn’t really happen when, in reality, they would be shocked at how often it happens... it isn’t that often that the public hears about it, or it’s even reported, but living with a couple dozen girls who are really close to each other can be really eye-opening.

And yes, some men are falsely accused of rape, and I have absolutely no respect at all for the girls who falsely accuse men of raping them and think that they’re one of the lowest kinds of liars out there, but to stereotype most rape accusations as being false is really disrespectful to the women and girls who have actually been raped.

I disagree. I think that rape is now so hyped up, that people have inflated ideas of how often it occurs. From Oprah Winfrey to Lifetime to "Take Back the Night" rallies, rape has become, for some, another way to claim victimhood and therefore privileged status, in the same way that "domestic violence" has been hyped up to where a woman can now have virtually any man in her life thrown in jail with a phone call, whether a crime has even been committed or not.

In addition, the definition of rape has changed. Once it meant a man physically forced himself on a woman, but now men can and have been prosecuted for simply not recognizing reluctance, however subtle, on the part of the woman to engage in sex, even if she does not actually say "no" or offer any physical resistance. In a California case a couple of years ago, which I am too lazy to look up a link for, a boy was convicted of rape even though the girl consented to sex, merely because, at some point well into the act, she stated that she needed to go home. Instead of immmediately leaping off of her, he continued to completion, and now he is in jail.

I have known a couple of victims of real rape, and for women like that, I am truly sorry, and I would very much like to see the perpetrators hanged. However, to the extent that actual victims of rape feel that the crime is trivialized, they have only their lying sisters to blame.

She didn’t understand what was happening because she was 12. The information is there on her website.
