Pennsylvania Bill Includes Provision Requiring Women To Prove They Were Raped

Commented Oct 25, 2012 at 10:26:51 in Politics

“My life was RUINED by reporting my rape. Believe me, I used to think like you did...until I was there. Now I understand why so many women don't report it.

I know I wouldn't if I could do it all over again.”

An Independent Woman on Oct 25, 2012 at 11:09:28

“I am so sorry for you. I truly cannot image the terror and the fear involved. I don't know why your life was ruined, was it the authorities? Was it your partner? I don't know. I do know that being a victim is a mug's game.”

“Exactly. If I so much as talked back to a teacher in school, you'd better believe I heard about it at home. Didn't take me long before I simply knew better than to do it.

Thanks, Mom and Dad, for being disciplinarians, no matter how much I hated it at the time. :)”

“Not that I think you actually care about this child (I'm sure you just want to spew vitriol), but I'm positive that since he is being raised by 2 loving parents who wanted him, he will be just fine. So no worries.”

“I can't answer for every couple who chooses international adoption, but I know that when my aunt and uncle decided to adopt, they chose to go to another country because everyone they knew who had tried domestic adoption had at least one fall through, most due to the birth mother changing her mind. After already spending so much time trying to conceive and failing, they didn't want that extra heartbreak, and they knew that if they were approved by the orphanage down in Colombia, they were certain to be matched with a child.”

“May I ask why both of you didn't adopt? Were you not allowed?”

“There's no law allowing two people of the same sex to adopt children in the southern state where we had lived at the time, so they could discriminate easily.”

“They went to the authorities (police and CPS) first. They didn't believe her. She was young, scared, so when her boyfriend proposed, she jumped at it.

I'm sure there is more to it that I don't know, but no, it wasn't her first choice.”

“The judge made an exception because she was running away from a physically and sexually abusive father, and getting married got her out of the house. Typically, a judge will say no, and only a few states allow a judge to make that type of exception anyway. She actually had to travel across several states to find a state she could get married in.”

James E Miller on May 29, 2011 at 20:07:30

“So her only option to get out of the house was marriage? That seems like a bit of a stretch. There are a myriad of other options she could have had to escape than marriage. Don't get me wrong, I could care less if she gets married. It just seems like she would have other options, I don't get why a judge had to rule that she could get married.”

“Because marriage is a legal contract, and we don't let minors enter into legal contracts. Though, you can get married under 18 (the exact age varies by state) with parental or judicial permission. I know someone who married at 14 with a judge's consent.”

James E Miller on May 29, 2011 at 19:39:59

“And who exactly is "we?" The point I am trying to make is that we set up all these provisions for arbitrary ages (18 to be an "adult," 21 to drink, 16 to drive) for different things. Marriage is no different.. Civil society can dictate what are viewed as legitimate marriages better than government law. Your 14 year old example kind of disproves your point.”
