Questions of Virtue

Why is the person who has been raped granted less consideration than the convicted rapist?

This (most recent) Stanford rape case exposes society's refusal to define rape as a crime, especially when the rapist is a winning athlete, all-American type or popular or wealthy or powerful or famous or projects some other superficial trait that too often trumps judging their actions according to high benchmarks of ethics, honor and decency.

The convicted rapist's letter made me think he was a narcissist at best or a sociopath at worst.

Emily Doe's Every Woman's letter made me cheer for her grit and courage.
