No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!
The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html
It’s time for all countries to stand up and say no more special treatment based on gender, race or sexual orientation.
i think no doubt mras will use this story to show how women have it better in the world and women are allowed to get away with crimes because they have it better off in society. but do you realize that this happened because women are viewed as weaker and more fragile? the jury no doubt looked at the attacker and thought “aw, but she’s a woman. there’s no way she could have done that because she’s so petite and small!!! and he got attacked by her??? well he must be weak to allow himself to be hurt by a woman!!”
it’s horrible that this happened and my heart goes out to the victim. the attacker should pay the price for what she did. but i want to stress that the unfair verdict is the product of living in a society where men are viewed as strong and violent while women are viewed as weak and submissive. the patriarchy hurts men too, and this is a prime example.
