Do females have different pitches? They should, if they want to keep competing.
One last point on this topic for you: the music I wrote a while ago for that “I Feel Pretty” video was played at a conference. A few guys came up and told me that their band is a girl group; I was stunned. I’ve listened to “The Voice” a few times, and I think most of the time it sounds pretty good too. What if it wasn’t? How much do you think you could have made it sound better? How much better can you make the video without compromising what made it awesome?

That, however, is not the case with accusations of sexual violence, where the victim can be assumed to be in “adverse consent” or “guilty consent” and an allegation is “guilty even when the accused says he didn’t”.
In the UK the concept that a crime cannot be proved beyond reasonable doubt, which is applied in other international jurisdictions, has helped reduce the number of rape
