    It does not mention if it was a he or a she.

    Not sure which is more sad, what happened to this poor girl or the mindset of the first commenter...

    I hope and pray that she is able to recover and move past this terrible event in her life.

    Libertarian- there could be many valid reasons she was in the football field bathroom like playing a sport after school or gym class. What in the story makes you question what she was wearing - not that it matters anyway

    It does not matter what she was wearing. When anyone says no it means just that NO. Don't be so quick to blame the victim for a crime that happened to her. You or I do not know the circumstances around what happened. Yes I know that the teenage girls like to dress with low cut shirts and tight pants what ever but that does not give a boy, young man or any one else the right to force themselves on anyone else.

    Libertarian- what she is wearing has nothing to do with it. IF she was in a bikini it still wouldn't "invite" someone to rape her. A rapist will rape reguardless of clothing if that is what is in their mind to do
