Girl, 14, Forced to Admit "I Got Raped When I Was 12" on Live "Shock Jock" Radio Show [Audio]
Australia is a great country, but its radio DJ's are even more inane and stupid than their counterparts in the US, as the Lie Detector segment on radio station 2DayFM recently demonstrated. A mother brought her 14-year-old daughter on the show to quiz her under lie detector about skipping school, and about her sex life.
The mother asked her daughter: "Have you ever had sex?"
The 14-year-old replied: "I’ve already told you the story about this ... and don’t look at me and smile because it’s not funny."
After a pause, she then raised her voice and said: "Oh OK … I got raped when I was 12 years old."
Sandilands [DJ] hesitated before asking, "Right ... is that the only experience you’ve had?"
The girl’s mother interrupted, saying she found out about the rape only "a couple of months ago".
Jackie O [The other DJ] then said they would drop the lie detector test as they had been unaware of the rape incident.
The audio (below) is amazing. There are so many things wrong with this it's hard to know where to start but here are two:
What was the radio station thinking putting a 14-year-old who clearly didn't want to be there on a lie detector?
What was the mother thinking asking a sex question when she knew her daughter had been raped?

Wow, just wow. Way to go to make women and young girls feel safe to report rape.
