Arthur Jumbles: Phoenix_M: Maybe the women of India should go on a "sex strike" it wok in the Philippines.I think that would only affect the "not willing to rape" menfolk.... the rapists would probably take it as a challenge.
MmmmBacon: Just a thought: Can we apply pressure on India economically to straighten their act out on rape and related crimes against women, by applying pressure on multinational companies that do business there? Basically, refuse to purchase products from Multinational X because they produce their products in India, or have call-centers there, etc. And in boycotting these companies, make sure they know exactly why they have lost your business. Then, if they are damaged enough through direct loss of sales or indirect loss of income due to bad PR, perhaps these companies will pull out of India or put pressure on the Indian government to take these cases seriously?Not likely, of course, but trying to do something to effect change is better than thinking good thoughts and wishing the rape-gangs away, no?
Strongbeerrules: Seriously, what has this culture given the world besides bad food and a caste system?
clyph: NativeDaughter: She must have been dressed provocatively.And she was probably drunk.I get the point you're trying to make.Ther'es a fine line between blaming the victim (which is wrong), and pointing out that the victim voluntarily engaged in reckless or negligent behavior which contributed to the circumstances of the crime.If I leave my car unlocked, and somebody steals it, they're still guilty of grand theft auto. But my insurance company probably isn't going to pay out either, because of my failure to take reasonable precautions to prevent the crime.Contributory negligence and attractive nuisance are well-established legal doctrines.
The My Little Pony Killer: The guys who did this are now being charged with murder.
brandent: Ed Finnerty: She didn't get pregnant so I can only assume this wasn't legitimate rape.I live with my mom because you have the legitimate rape thing backwards. It WAS legitimate rape because she didn't get pregnant. If she got pregnant than it means she liked it. Keep up.
whatshisname: Latinwolf: I was gonna make a comment about them being animals but then realized it would be insulting to actual animals.For fark's sake, does pointing fingers and calling other cultures make you feel a whole lot better? How does 20 dead pre-school kids stack up against this crime?
Latinwolf: That's why it's time for them to take matters into their own hands. The system is broke. The police and the politicians are protecting the ...I'd hate to agree, but this time, yeah, this is the only way they can fix things. Tear the system up and start over.
Ed Finnerty: She didn't get pregnant so I can only assume this wasn't legitimate rape.
fusillade762: The protesters are demanding stronger protection for women and the death penalty for rape, which is now punishable by a maximum of life imprisonment.I'm generally anti-death penalty, but in this particular case I'd make an exception.
atomicmask: Islam, what a wonderful religion.
