Bit harsh

A man convicted of raping a six-year-old had his sentence reduced because the victim was described as being gay and had already suffered abuse at the hands of his own father.

The child had a “homosexual orientation”, Argentinian appeal court judges said in their ruling as they reduced the rapist’s prison sentence from six years to three.

Hmm.

Yes, I know, we’re told that being gay is innate but this really isn’t quite what people mean by that, is it?

  1. it will request that the two appeal court judges face a political trial, a procedure under which public officials can be questioned by parliamentarians and be sanctioned or struck off

    So if the Argentinian parliament doesn’t like the decisions a judge makes, they can have them fired? Tyranny of the (parliamentary) majority indeed.

  2. It is not often I agree with leaders of the Alphabet Soup Community, but what the f**k?

    It is not as if six year olds have sexual orientation anyway, but taking the fact that the other boys beat him up in school as a mitigating circumstance is so frickin’ bizarre I can hardly believe it.

    Look on the bright side. They probably won’t be fired. They will be transfered to some international court or other. So they can sit in judgement on Britain and British people.

    I expect uklib will be along in a minute to explain this is just peachy and then Ironman will accuse anyone who objects of being racist.

  4. So had it been a six year old girl with a heterosexual orientation a rapist could expect their sentences reduced?

    The point is rape… the crime is non-consensual sex so orientation, sex or age of the victim make no difference, nor prior experiences.

    (Except under a certain age it is assumed the victim is not competent to give consent.)

  5. Crivens, blimey,crickey – the original 6 years seems far too lenient for raping a 6 year old.
