A dangerous offender is released, pending appeal, and this is the comment the cbc lets through, regarding a woman who is scared that the guy is living in her neighbourhood:
"the guys more than likely innocent and either way wouldn't be interested in this lady anyway,,,typical liberal skank"
ARGH! I don't know where to begin with this. How about let's boil it down to this:
Rape is not about finding someone attractive. It is not about "being interested" in someone. It is about causing pain, misery and humiliation. It is about power. 90 year old women are raped. 5 year old girls are raped. Fat women, thin women, disabled women, fit women, redheads, blondes, brunettes. Rapists may have their "preferences", but rape happens to women of all categories. All.
What does this asshole think? That a woman should feel flattered that the guy found her hot enough to rape?! Probably.
