General, Polictics

The eye of the storm – date rape.


Quite offended by the whole George Galloway‘s Julian Assange Rape Comments. I like both chaps, but how could Galloway say that and expect to get away with it? Yes, he’s entitled to an opinion (we all are), but he’s an MP, a leader who you would think should have a higher moral conviction, or at least keep his ops to himself? But again, maybe I’m bending over to the PC charade?

Anyhow, not too long ago, I opined in a short post on the Sexual harrassment theme (which some said was “distasteful”) and how it destroys lives. Interestingly, barely a couple of weeks later, every other politician and celebrity has a view on the issue. Some have been gravely affected and probably need more of an ear than others, who are just having a go at the subject. Also, hands up all who won’t buy Helen Mirren’s angle?

Yet, what’s visibly absent (the big pink elephant in the room) is how society can sufficiently protect those that are CURRENTLY enslaved by sexual harrassment and rape (in one form or the other), from their assailants, who frankly shouldn’t be anywhere but behind bars?
