TRIGGER WARNING!

A US judge has prompted outrage after saying that a rape victim didn't put up a fight during her assault and that if someone doesn't want sex, the body 'will not permit that to happen.'




Judge Derek Johnson's comments, which echo those of outgoing U.S. representative Todd Akin, who used the phrase 'legitimate rape' and said women who are the victims of rape rarely get pregnant, have drawn widespread condemnation.



The states Commission on Judicial Performance has also attacked the the judge for taking ten years off the recommended sentence for the rapist in the case, imposing a six-year sentence instead.



"In the commission's view, the judge's remarks reflected outdated, biased and insensitive views about sexual assault victims who do not 'put up a fight.'

Judge Johnson was making the comments in the case of a man who threatened to mutilate the face and genitals of his ex-girlfriend with a heated screwdriver. The man also beat her with a metal baton and made violent threats before committing rape and forcing oral copulation.

Poor woman was beaten and was threatened to have her face and genitals mutilated by a screwdriver... and this asshole said the rape wasn't even a "real criminal case." I am just sickened with the world lately.

Yes because all women have built in steel doors that shut off the openings of our mouths, anus and vagina if we don't want sex. Sure.

I really hope he is not a judge for very much longer. The shitty thing is.....People actually believe this way....and they are allowed to believe this way. Especially people with power!

People who think like this infuriate me. I hope he loses his job. Someone that stupid/ignorant should not have that much power.

I am speechless. It's amazing that there are people (especially a JUDGE) out there are this sick, ignorant, and chauvinistic. His comments are disgusting.

Completely agreed.



I don't understand... If I were to say ANYTHING like this at my job I would be fired on the spot... but he's still a judge. What a tool bag.

I'm getting deja vu because this reminds me of that one Republican guy who stated that women who were really raped wouldn't get pregnant, or something to that effect.

I thought everyone had one? :shock: Apparently my vagina is specially equipped with the anti-rape chastity belt system that magically pops out and prevents any penises from entering.
