      Delhi Gang Rape: Why did the Men Rape Her? | India | www.indiatimes.com

      The title of the article is hideous. Not more so than the crime those animals committed. But as more details emerge about what transpired on the night of horror for the 23-year old medical student and her male friend, it becomes more and more clear that the men were remorseless and confident about not getting caught.Poor, drunk and armed with an arrogance that they could get away with it, we can now make an effort to understand, why did they rape her.

      From the Delhi police: Why women deserve to be raped

      One of the most depressing aspects of writing about the recent string of rape cases are the responses these kinds of stories inevitably evoke. The Internet trolls come out in swarms to condemn the victim: for being out late at night, for being divorced, talking to strangers, drinking, dressing "provocatively", and, the worst, for making it all up.
