Lawmaker Says "Some Girls Rape Easy"

Wisconsin state Rep. Roger Rivard (R) "is drawing heat for saying that his father had told him when he was young that 'some girls rape easy' as a way to warn him that a woman could agree to sex but then later claim that it wasn't consensual," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Said Rivard: "He also told me one thing, 'If you do, just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry.' Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she's not going to say, 'Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.' All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she's underage. And he just said, 'Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,' he said, 'they rape so easy.'"
