Another Sexy Girl Becomes An Alleged Rape Victim

In this case from Alabama, a 19-year-old man who was charged with rape told investigators that he was lured by his alleged victim's sexy behavior.

So often when people hear this type of defense some of them will rant about how girls are too sexy these days and therefore bringing sexual assaults upon themselves. This way of thinking is dead wrong. No girl or woman no matter how sexy she is or how sexy she dresses brings sexual assault upon herself.

This case should remind us that this type of excuse is just that. An excuse and not a cause.

His alleged victim in this case is 8 years old.

If this doesn't shock you into letting go of the "she lured me" myth, then maybe hearing that this excuse has been used by a convicted child abuser when the victim was only 18 months old will have you seeing this lie for what it is.

A rationalization for a heinous crime.

So the question then becomes: Will you support the rationalizations of rapists or will you stand against these rationalizations and put the full blame for rape where it belongs -- on the rapist?
