The “accidental rapist” myth also depends on a society with archaic, Victorian attitudes towards sex. Really? There are ton of women out there who would be so ashamed to have a one night stand that they would rather submit themselves to the scrutiny of a criminal rape trial?
This fails on two counts: (1) no one really gives a shit anymore if a young lady has sex outside of wedlock and (2) if shame is the driving factor, why on Earth would they go through a public rape trial with the sole evidence being their testimony? This mythical woman can’t stand the giggling looks of her classmate but is willing to be cross-examined by some jackass defense attorney? Not bloody likely.
