[Trigger Warning]

After a long morning of reading about misogyny and rape, I take a break to read junk only to stumble across this:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/277263.stm

There aren't words to describe how shitty this is. Of course, what about victims who wear skirts? They were probably asking for it. Victims who wear conservative and covering clothes? They leave too much to the imagination. My head asplode.

ETA: Just saw the date of the article, 1999. Hopefully someone sane in the last decade overturned that.

Yeah, you should really stop using Reddit as a source of nice fun things. :(

The people who made that law, just... they obviously have no understanding of sexual assault at all. I suppose they watched some movies written by men, directed by men, and thought they knew everything.
