In NYS, the rape victim’s identify is protected by the Rape Shield Law. And HIV/AIDS status is also to be totally confidential. Interesting that in 2 days, it’s all come out..obviously leaked...and no doubt from the defense..they are trying desperately to influence public opinion and shape the jury pool..which won’t work..

“I sometimes hear about forced oral sex; why do I never hear about anything being bitten off?”

Dilbert San Diego

“This is a sensitive subject. But probably, in forced oral sex, the victim is afraid of being strangled if he/she uses the teeth.”

Women do not know what a powerful weapon they have at their disposal. It is called “teeth.”

An example:

Some idiot tried to rip my purse off sometime back. I bit him on the arm without thought of consequences…I don’t know where on the arm because I was too busy biting. Every time he pulled at my purse, I sank my teeth deeper into his flesh until I could taste blood…(No I didn’t get tested for HIV. A couple of years later I donated blood to my brother. I was then tested for HIV at that time. I was clean…thank goodness.)

“But probably, in forced oral sex, the victim is afraid of being strangled if he/she uses the teeth.”

If one has to think about being strangled, etc., one is not up to the task for saving oneself. One bites without thinking. Self-preservation takes over everything else.

Had she clamped down with her teeth on that part of his body, he would still be jumping up and down today. She could have gotten away at that point.

She chickened out.

Her personal HIV status, whatever that is, WAS NOT “leaked”.

What was “leaked” was the nature of the residence where she lived - a building set aside for adults with HIV. The status of that building is public information.

Maybe it’s her 15 year old daughter that has HIV, and for that reason her and her mother were able to live in that building?

At this point who knows? But, at this point the legal security of her personal medical/HIV status/record was not breached.
