Why is that?

Rohn Robbins did a column about the rape shield law, which is an issue in the Kobe Bryant case. He points out that the accuser’s sexual history is usually off-limits, but the accused’s sexual history is usually admissable in evidence.
Robbins dismisses criticism of this different treatment because – he says – there is a “moral ill-equivilancy of the two.” He doesn’t explain this point. He should.
