Surely there is enough public information available to show teenaged girls and young women that they can get into serious trouble if they drink to excess in public.
And yet in the news today is an awful story. A girl went to a party. She got drunk and had sex with four boys. The Toronto Star says she was raped but the National Post says that she drank so much vodka she doesn't fully remember what went on.
The case was investigated by police but they didn't find enough evidence to charge the boys with rape.
One of these terrible boys took a picture of the sex act and passed it around via email. When the girl went back to school fine Canadian teens called her a slut and boys she didn't know started harrassing her with text messages.
The girl became depressed and committed suicide.
Apparently, she was a smart girl. She got good marks. Why didn't she know for a fact that drinking makes people stupid and that she shouldn't drink to excess with a group of other people who are doing so?
