Our thanks to a supporter for this piece published by the Telegraph.
For many years non-feminist perspectives on rape have been re-cast as ‘bias’, perfectly reasonable attitudes re-cast as ‘myths’. For the first time in the UK, jurors will be selected specifically to increase the prospect of conviction, and specifically the conviction of men. The ideologically-inspired Sexual Offences Act 2003 dictates that only men can be rapists.
There must surely already be a huge number of justifiably angry men in British prisons because of convictions following false rape allegations. This proposal – if implemented – will add considerably to their number.
This development is inextricably linked in with the ‘rape culture’ myth about which we protested in October, outside the CPS and in Parliament Square, in support of The Forgotten Man and The London Group – video here (15:05).
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
