 This is fat bigotry, misogyny, and violence against women/vicitms at its most blatant. Words fail me on this one. It is just too horrifically outrageous and imflamatory. Read for yourself. A snippet of the article is here–

Lawyer: ‘Rape’ girl should be ‘glad of attention’


Thursday, May 17, 2007

A barrister provoked outrage yesterday by claiming that the victim of an alleged gang rape was so fat she would have been ‘glad of the attention’.

Sheilagh Davies, defending one of three boys accused of raping two girls, said the 16-year-old girl had ‘slimmed down a lot’ since the alleged attack.

  1. No one of any size should ever be forced to perform any type of sex act for any reason. Last time I looked that is against the law. It doesn’t matter that the boys were 13, they did the crime and they need to do the time for it. They committed a vile act against those girls.

  2. I think the lawyer who stated that bull should have been beaten.
    Instead of doing something about the boys who were accused of rape, she
    went to the media and said something so evil that no rape victim
    deserved to hear. The victim was so depressed that she stopped eating
    and lost a lot of weight afterwards. That was so immature and
    unprofessional for the lawyer to even mention something so irrelevant.
    You’d think that someone of her profession would have a better demeanor
    on a case so sensitive than to say something so cruel. If I were the
    judge on that case I’d ride that b**** until she’d quit.

  5. What century are we living in? Is it’s still 1930’s? Cause I belive that’s the time period where this type of thinking belongs in.
