But never mind. Take every opportunity to blame the real victim.

Uhh...I think we call that lying via omission, don't we?

She allowed everyone to believe this, to the point that her boyfriend even signed the birth certificate as the father, correct? She carried on the ruse to the extent that a paternity test was required to confirm the father...even though she claimed to know Barnes was.

Yes the real victim is being blamed, it would seem...Barnes. True justice would likely see her behind bars and him with full custody.

She must truly have been powerless if there was nothing she could have done to have corrected their false assumption. Are you imagining her as a deaf mute, or a bit slow? Also, she says she let everybody believe it in the original article.

Uh-ha, what law did she break exactly by letting people assume something?

Yes, an expected response. Blaming the victim of rape in this thread has become endemic.

Go complain to her. People are just quoting what she said. We aren't her PR team.

She has engaged in a pattern of deceit that would likely include false claims of forcible rape, among others. Not only that, but she clearly misled Barnes and others about her age, to the extent of even utilizing a false ID. If there were any true justice, she would be held accountable for such treachery.

Instead Barnes is likely to take a rape conviction. Justice and law do not always go hand in hand.
