Didn’t matter then, doesn’t matter now.

Women who are raped are the ones on trial if they speak out even when it happens: What were you wearing? Why were you there? Why, Why, WHY??? It’s all your fault and why are you ruining this young man’s future?

In some states they even have to give their rapists custody/visitation rights.

Let us not also forget this.

Gay/Trans panic defense

The State I live in (Idaho) still allows this.

Yep, we can be killed just for being who we are.

This is by no means an attempt to diminish from the trauma a CIS woman goes through by being raped. It is instead meant to show the inherent bias given toward CIS men in these cases.

If the attacker is a CIS male, they get the benefit of the doubt.

Always.
