New York City Cops Acquitted on Rape Charges — Feministe. this disgusts me. As a woman, I’m terrified of cops. if i weren’t completely and utterly emotionally exhausted I’d be furious. I find it interesting that the cop said they “cuddled”… i thought the current consensus on sexual assault of women was that they “lead men on” by such things as cuddling and they “send mixed signals” which lead to the the “confusion” wherein he heard yes but she said no or nothing. I’ve heard laying in bed with a mostly naked woman as an excuse for later raping her, not as a cop out. … no pun intended… well now it is..
rape and sexual assault should be considered hate crimes.
