Rape Tape

A judge did threatened an alleged rape victim that she might be charged with contempt of court if she refuses to watch a videotape of the rape, though he backed off at the end.. [ more ] and [some more]..

Like what they say, a rape victim gets raped again and again long after the ordeal.
A movie maker shows a rape scene, with a seemingly good intention and a respectable, social theme, but the victim gets raped again and again in the minds of the viewers. Maybe your boyfriend sitting next to you is doing just the same . And, they dare ban Cigarettes and Animals from movies.

Is there a more gender-insensitive judiciary in the democratic world than the Indian one? (oh wait, there's Italy as well). What is it about rape that brings out the worst kind of sexism in our judges? What kind of sexual repression will try and find all kinds of excuses for what is essentially violent assault against a person.

Thanks for writing about it Tony. You're very courageous.

sexism unfortunately is not a regional phenomenon; even though there are more somewhere than eleswhere, it is still global... like some other isms i don't even want to talk about.., some isms are very ....umm democratic?
