Could you give a description of how you think it is biased? My
understanding is that the courts typically grant significant lee-way
to rape prosecutions that they don't offer to others (thinks like
allowing chilren to testify without cross-examiniations). My
understanding is also that it is easier to convice a rapists with
nothing but the testimony of the alleged victim than it is to
convict on any other crime with only the testimony of the alleged
In addition, it is certainly easier for a woman to prosecute for
rape than it is for a man. Despite the fact that the FBI estimates
