You're blaming a woman who was raped while at work for her rape?
You're giving males free range for violence against women.

If the men can't handle themselves, they need to go to jail.
Rape isn't about sex, it's about violence and control.

OK, I appreciate your input. Yes, men who rape should absolutely be jailed (or executed in my opinion).

If you take away women's rights(some more) then they should NOT have to pay equal taxes....but I prefer ALL Americans have equal rights.....and women have the right to join the military...

I have always believed it is a mistake to put men and women together in close quarters in the military (or on college campuses) for obvious reasons.

Get real, people!
""""I have always believed it is a mistake to put men and women together in close quarters in the military (or on college campuses) for obvious reasons.""""

Or in shopping malls, grocery stores, high schools, towns, houses, apartments, subways, bars, cities, country roads or any other place a woman could get raped....

The military could also not follow the example of the Catholic Church by hiding and protecting the rapists but take a stand and treat the rapists as what they are , criminals. The military has a history of shoving this under the rug.

She has a long history of saying stupid crap, like wishing Obama would be assassinated.

Putting her on many shows after crap like that shows they approve of the message.

I don't believe your BS about getting both sexes together men can't control themselves and women should get used to it.

Last time I heard crap like that was in radical fundamentalist Islamic ravings.

Women have the right to play in the NFL but I don't think they should.

I guess you're totally naive about the military if you compare it to football.

I've been with the military most of my adult life. I haven't, however, played in the NFL so your point has some merit.

I thought Fox news viewers prided themselves on being tough on crime types. Defending and justifying the behavior of rapists isn't what I call tough on crime.
