    Default Rape - how important is your underwear

    Apparently wearing lacy underwear means that you are looking for sex:

    Counsel for man acquitted of rape suggested jurors should reflect on underwear worn by teen complainant | Irish Examiner


    So ladies, if you ever get raped because you're dressed up, don't bother going to court if you wore lacy undergarments as it will be used against you.

    Nice underwear is a sign of being sexual available apparently.

    "Does the evidence out-rule the possibility that she was attracted to the defendant and was open to meeting someone and being with someone? You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front.

    It was said by a woman (I presume).

    Yes it was said by a woman, the defending barrister.

    The other things is that even if she was looking for sex, it doesn't mean she was looking for sex with him, so looking for sex in itself shouldn't imply consent.

    But she did (or was about to) have sex with him.

    There's nothing to suggest that other than the words of the defendant

    On the other hand

    So? He was found innocent by unanimous decision of a 12-member jury - four of whom were women.

    To paraphrase George Bernard Shaw "Put a woman on the spit and you can always get another woman to turn her."

    Enough reasonable doubt was generated that a not guilty verdict was returned.

    Juries don't find people innocent.

    Apparently Elizabeth O’Connell has a history of defending suspected rapists and victim blaming is completely standard for her.
