Read my article. What you are describing is how it ought to be — but that isn’t how it actually is or how it actually works in the real world. Coming forward to report rape most often means the victim will end up being revictimized by the system and not in fact given help or justice. There was an extensive article about this in the Washington Post just the other day. It was an article that was begun three years ago, but coincidentally was ready to be published at a relevant time.

Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t make it any less true. Take a pill dude — you are going to have an aneurysm or something.
