    doesn't seem to help though. ppl own bias clouds their judgement here. we are all prone to this.

    you are correct about the legal and ethical considerations. thanks for trying to educate.

      Careful, though. The education is mine. Cognitive bias is a fascinating subject.

      The same irrational thinking goes on with the right, too. The difference is that they tend to support the rapists as the victims. Exposing the name of their accuser, the rape victim, is what they rationalize.

      Oh, and the right wingers jump into ad hominem arguments right away. So I don't learn much from the wingers.

      But it's really the same boneheaded self-will and inflated ego that drives this behavior.

      Hopefully, a few lurkers might have learned something about the blindness that is so apparent in some of the comment in this thread.
