The loveable Penny Red reports a shocking case of miscarriage of justice concerning a gang-rape in England.
Bizarrely, the rapists were acquitted.
In a true miscarriage of justice, the BBC reports on how five British men were set free on the grounds that the victim had had group-sex fantasies.
According to Judge Robert Brown,
So, because she had expressed an interest in group sex, she was fair game to be raped? That is what the judgment seems to sugggest. Once again we get to hear how the victim "asked for it".
Miss Red chooses as her title: Strike One for Patriarchy. So I and many of our readers ought to feel ashamed of our half of the species, as these brutes were allowed to walk free. Of course this is a gender issue, isn't it?
Aren't we men all on the side of the perpetrator on this, by virtue of our being men? I don't know a single man who wouldn't be enraged by this crime and it's subsequent brush-off by a lenient court.
Oh, and the perpetrators? The five violent, male, British men-brutes, what were their names again?
