My bull shit meters going off on this one.
Assuming a rapist or other violent criminal is innocent until proven guilty, insinuates that the victim is guilty until proven innocent. Like math, in social justice both sides of the equation must balance.
Our insistence that we treat potential criminals with fairness at the expense of potential victims is a patriarchally constructed lie. Women are the target of most heinous crimes, men are typically the offenders.
We give credence and concede much of our human rights when we perpetuate these dangerous myths.
Having sex with a woman while sleeping is rape. There are no loopholes. -Angela J Lee
