the things that could make rape allegations more credible are if the victim had prof or was under the influence, this would help because you could prove it and also the victim was not in the right state of mind of it was easier for the rapist.
You make some good and interesting points in your response, I wish you would have explained your thoughts more. Also, make sure to proof read your work before submitting. I found quite a few grammar mistakes that could have been easily avoided.
Going off on the alcohol influence, I belive that it is mainly an excuse. There are many many people that have been under the influence and still KNOW their right from their wrong. It is ridiculous that some people have the audacity to say that they sexually put themselves on somebody because they were drunk. You do it because you wanted to do it. Not because you were drunk. Drunk actions are sober thoughts.
You made some great points in your response, however I would encourage you to use evidence from the article to back up your claims because as is, your response sounds more like an opinion.
The things that should make rape alligations legal is if the victim can pick them out of a from foot of people a DNA test and how they got there drinks
Your response was a little short and slightly confusing. For future blogs I would suggest developing your ideas more, using evidence from the article to support them, and making sure to use punctuation to break them up.
Alcohol is used as an excuse all the time not only with young adults but also with regular adults. Some people it really does affect to where they can't control what was going on but others try and use it for granted and get away with stuff they shouldn't. There is always a good and a bad side to something and with alcohol it might just be this. I personally believe that it should not be used as an excuse no matter what goes on since you're the person who chose to drink and you also know the consequences. If you didn't think about them then it is still your fault and making up the excuse of alcohol was in my system is not right and should not be possible.
Your response was strong and make some good points. I would challenge you to use the article to find evidence to support your claims.
In an accusation about something as serious as rape, alcohol is a massive road block when it comes to finding the truth. In a "hormone ridden, alcohol driven party" who is to say what really happened. These parties were described as a regular thing that happened with all attendee knowing good and well of the risk of the intoxicated individuals. People involved in a case such as a rape allegation have almost lost all credibility once they say what influences were at the party. A prime example is that the woman or man could've unknowingly gave permission to perform sexual act and just not remember it due to the act that both people involved were under the influence. In a case with no actual proof word against word shouldn't even be taken into consideration. Rape and sexual harassment at gathering like this are a serious problem and will only be fixed when someone has physical hard evidence. You can't take the views of one drunken person over the over because of a simple he said she said claim.
This is a very strong response and your use of the article for support was done very well. Make sure when you quote something you reference the article or the author to give recognition.
In today's society it seems like young adults are getting accused of rape. I do not tolerate rape one bit but from cases I have personally seen first hand its not always creditable when girls claim rape. I'm not saying that rape doesn't happen but more often than not when these girls drink they want to to engage in sexual activities but they are so afraid of "slut shaming" they will often say it was rape. But at the same time girls will get so drunk at parties and what not that they cant function and these sorry excuse of a men will take advantage of these innocent girls.
You make some interesting points in your response, your suggestions of party culture bring a new side to the argument. In the future make sure to use evidence from the article to support your claims, otherwise it looks like your response is just speculation.
some factors that can make rape allegations less credible is not bringing it up or telling someone until 35 years after it happened. This can make it less credible because there would not be much to prove since it has happened so long ago. It can also be less credible because there would be eye witnesses that were ther when it happened that wouldnt remember now because it happened so long ago. A foctor than can make rape allegations more credible is telling someone about it as soon as it might of happened. This can be more credible because it would be easy to find evedince.
You did well in including both sides of the argument, it strengthens your credibility as a writer. I would encourage you to explain your ideas a little more though and proof read your response to avoid grammar mistakes.
Alcohol does influence young adults. Actually alcohol even influences young adults, old adults, and even teens in general. Honestly yes being drunk or using alcohol as an excuse is somewhat a trend. Like Brett Kavanaugh's defenders said "if the assault happened it took place under the influence of alcohol and hormones". Using alcohol as an "excuse" should not be a trend nor should it be aloud. Being under the influence of alcohol is self done; if you didn't want something to happen that happened then maybe you shouldn't have drank and let the alcohol take over your mind and body.
You make some interesting points in your response. In academic writing we want to make sure we write as a more elevated versions of ourselves instead of like we're having a conversation with someone, I would encourage you to work on your wording.
Age and influence are huge factors of rape allegations. At a young age, teens aren't very cautious with the use of alcohol and other dangerous depressants to the body. It can cause you to make some decisions that you most likely will regret in the future. A lot of times alcohol is used as an excuse. If you know what it does to your mental state, that should be the first red flag. Responsibility should be taken, even while under the influence of alcohol. Taking that risk is a decision you make before drinking.
This was a very well written response, nicely done. I would encourage you to use the article to back up your claims in the future.
Alcohol makes a rape allegation less credible because they blame the alcohol for the incident. I think that alcohol should NOT be a good enough reason for things like that to happen. I have personally drank around multiple young females and I have not ever once had these kinda thoughts go through my head. Alcohol definitely can cause things that usually wouldn't happen to happen but not to that extent. I can still tell right from wrong while drinking. Alcohol tends to end up being an excuse for something dumb a lot. I think that people use alcohol as a way to act out and it be considered "okay".
Your personal experience was definitely a risk (and in the future I would suggest being careful with what you disclose in the classroom) and it added an interesting piece to your response. Make sure to use evidence from the article and elevated language to add to your credibility.
There are man factors that can contribute more or less in a rape allegation; one popular factor could be alcohol. In my opinion alcohol causes people to act differently than they normally do thus meaning if someone is accused of raping another while under the influence it is probably more of a credible source; however, I do believe that in many cases if both people are under the influence then one accuses the other of rape then it is most likely less credible.
Strong response, you make some good points. Make sure to use the article to support your claims and strengthen your writing.
The factors that make rape allegations more or less credible are certainly when it took place, were there any substances involved and lastly proof. In today's world there seems to be many outspoken people on rape, the concern with this is many are tending to be from years or even decades ago making these both not legally punishable and also hard to be found true.
I like that you discuss time as a factor for credibility, not many of your peers have brought up this point. Some of your sentences are worded a little funny and made it hard to understand the last part of your response though, make sure you are communicating your thoughts completely and clearly.
Alcohol can influence people to do wrong, but it does not justify harmful behaviors. Alcohol can have a powerful effect on some individuals. Sexual assault is one crime that many adults and teens commit under the influence of alcohol. While alcohol can play a role in these wrongdoings, it cannot be used as an excuse for anyone. When intoxicated, an individual still has the ability to understand the difference between right and wrong. This means that the person committing the crime understands what they are doing.
Your response to the prompt is strong and you made some good points. Your sentences were little choppy in places, I would suggest combining some of your thoughts and sentences to strengthen your writing.
Factors such as evidence and proof make rape allegations credible not the words of one person. I believe that rape allegations should not be credible at all unless there is proof that the rape happened. This may sound harsh to people who were raped and don't have proof but in my opinion it is even more harsh to punish someone that is innocent because of a lie that someone else told. A good example of this is the Youtuber Toby Turner (Tobuscus) who allegedly drugged and raped a girl. This event never happened, and just because this girl made these allegations on a tumbler post Toby was scolded by the internet and his channel lost popularity.
Your use of outside knowledge added a very strong element to your argument, nicely done. Make sure you pull examples from the article to support your claims as well since this is what the prompt was referencing.
There are many factors that make rape allegations more or less credible. For example, its hard to make the allegation of rape when alcohol is involved in the situation. This is because it can influence young adults to make decisions with out being in the right state of mind. They can black out and not really remember; however, being sober is different. For example, being sober during this situation you can understand what is right and wrong. You're eligible to understand and comprehend. Also, you would be capable to tell the story without being hesitant because you were in the right state of mind if this situation went to trial .
Strong response with some interesting points. Make sure you are using the article as a reference of support to your claims.
