    Re: Roethlisberger Sucks



    Jason LaCanfora is reporting on CBS that Ben had no restrictions in practice this week and that Tomlin called him into his office on Friday to say that he needed to really practice or he'd rule him out.

    He was ruled out on Friday.

    Teammates are privately frustrated with Ben not making more of an effort to play.

    This could really fire up Pitt or they could fold.

    Stay tuned

Neither does any woman relish the ordeal faced by the plaintiff in a rape case (defense attorneys publically go over and after their lifestyle/sexual history like starving dogs - that's what they're paid to do). This is why many rape plaintiffs drop charges. Ben most likely had charges dropped in the GA case (and others I think, I'm no expert on Ben's off-field history) for precisely this reason. No woman would make even the initial accusation unless they experienced other than fully consensual sexual contact.
    Ben used his status to attract female attention and then behaved in ways that were not perceived by his accusers as fully consensual. The GA case w/ the drunk college kid I find particularly egregious, much as I found Bill Clinton and Paula Jones or Monica L. Pick on someone your own size, boys!! :
    Your "no woman" statement is overly broad. Crystal Mangum (Duke LAX) lied. There's a man still sitting in prison in VA after his accuser admitted she lied because VA has a "21 day" rule that doesn't allow a trial judge to consider evidence not presented within 21 days of conviction except for DNA. Lamar Owens's accuser (Naval Academy) probably didn't know what happened that night: she was extremely drunk.

    Most states, perhaps all, have laws which restrict the ability of defense attorneys to go after an alleged rape victim's past, sexual or otherwise. The Duke LAX defenders were denied using Mangum's previous psychiatric problems- including a previous dubious allegation of being raped- in pretrial hearings, and would have been denied had it gone to trial.

    I don't know if Roethlisberger is a rapist/sexual offender or not. As a Ravens fan, I laugh at "Rapistberge," but that's based on my fan bias, not on any evidence which shows even to a preponderance of the evidence that he warrants the label.

    Where is your proof on that? I have proof that says otherwise.

    From 1973 through 2008, nine surveys of women's rape fantasies have been published. They show that about four in 10 women admit having them (31 to 57 percent) with a median frequency of about once a month. Actual prevalence of rape fantasies is probably higher because women may not feel comfortable admitting them.

    For the latest report (Bivona, J. and J. Critelli. "The Nature of Women's Rape Fantasies: An Analysis of Prevalence, Frequency, and Contents," Journal of Sex Research (2009) 46:33), psychologists at North Texas University asked 355 college women: How often have you fantasized being overpowered/forced/raped by a man/woman to have oral/vaginal/anal sex against your will?

    Sixty-two percent said they'd had at least one such fantasy. But responses varied depending on the terminology used. When asked about being "overpowered by a man," 52 percent said they'd had that fantasy, the situation most typically depicted in women's romance fiction. But when the term was "rape," only 32 percent said they'd had the fantasy. These findings are in the same ballpark as previous reports.

    Are folks really debating the merits, or lack thereof, of rape?
