“The state Supreme Court Monday threw out the conviction of a city man found guilty of sexually assaulting a severely handicapped woman.
In a 4-3 decision, the high court ruled that despite evidence the 26-year-old woman cannot speak and has little body movement, there was no evidence she could not communicate her refusal to have sex with the defendant, Richard Fourtin Jr. As a result of the ruling, Fourtin goes free and cannot be tried for the case again.” READ THE FULL ARTICLE - “Supreme Court sets accused rapist free”
So by this supreme court’s decision, I’m currently consenting to sex by sitting at this computer typing and drinking my chai latte.
I’ll be consenting to sex when I run this meeting in 30 minutes.
I’m consenting to sex while taking a shit.
I’m consenting to sex while out cold on the operating table.
FUCK THAT SHIT ENTIRELY.
i can’t express exactly how angry i am about this ruling.
not only does it deny that rape even happens, but it also implies that women are to be always ready and willing for sex— an idea that i reject.
I think they just spelled it wrong. Connecticut women are in a constant state of malcontent.
i wish i was surprised. I wish
I am sickened by this.
I feel like even with the current roster, the US Supreme Court might be able to point out why this is overreaching, dangerous, unconstitutional, and flat out vile.
But there’s no war on women, okay, guys? We’re all equal, right? We should stop “complaining” right? Seething.
