The Stupidest Rape Defense Ever

I'm still steaming over this story about a gang-rape case in England in which the attorney for the rapists claimed the 16-year-old victim "may have been glad for the attention" since despite recently losing weight she still weighed 174 pounds. Now, I realize it's just another sleazy legal maneuver to blame the victims--reference was also made to the clothing being worn not just by these girls but by young teen girls in general. I mean, really. Can anyone be that stupid? Apparently so.
