How rape trials should go?

  • Lawyer:

    Did he rape her?

  • Witness:

    Yes, but she was drunk and passed out.

  • Lawyer:

    That's not what I asked. Did he rape her?

  • Witness:

    Yes, but she was wearin-

  • Lawyer:

    I didn't ask what she was wearing. Did he rape her?

  • Witness:

    Yes, but-

  • Lawyer:

    I didn't ask anything else. It's just a simple yes or no answer. Did he rape her?

  • Witness:

    Yes.

  • Laywer:

    Yes, he raped her.

  • Rape is rape is rape, no matter the context.

You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.
