I read in the Guardian that she was only in the room for seven minutes sad

I only hope that his reputation is beyond repair politically and that Tristane Banon's case comes to fruition.

Sigh. Good old DSK and everyone involved in the defence, or buying the defence's lines.

Lets just perpetute more and more rape myths. What next? She's an immigrant and they can't be raped? Her hair was in a certain hairstyle so that means she consented? That outfit showed she wanted sex?

This has made my jaw drop this morning it's so ludicrous.
According to his version:

A woman arrives to clean a hotel room. She meets a man for the first time in the room. Seven minutes later the man leaves for a meeting. Inside that 7 minutes the woman willingly consents to give this complete stranger a blowjob, for no financial gain, and carries it out?

Minusing the time for the blowjob (let's say that's 2 minutes) that's 5 minutes to introduce yourselves, get all the niceties out of the way, achieve full consent and clean yourself up afterwards.

Outside of Pornland, how does that make any conceivable sense?
It's so so so depressing that he can go on air and present that as being the case.

the sooner this innocent man is in the clear the better

<parp>

I still believe her.

Quodlibet, that makes supreme sense - except the two minutes seem a bit short. But then that only improves your argument.

I was just reading this in the paper and was utterly hmm

Rape myths a plenty. There was no violence, no aggression, no force yada yada yada.

Cos of course I have lost count of the number of men who within 7 mins I am so utterly attracted to that I want to give them a blow job and carry it out. That really happens in the real world, doesn't it hmm.

It just shows how dominant rape myths are that he can say this with a straight face and think it makes sense. Read like a confession to me. If you actually understand what rape is of course.

SGM, all of us with at least one brain cell rattling about believe her. wink

AliceWyrld Mon 19-Sep-11 18:20:12

Yes important to add that. I believe her.

edd1337 Mon 19-Sep-11 18:20:29

What happened to the "believing the victim", edd?

edd1337 Mon 19-Sep-11 18:25:07

Those with a brain will know that some women fall into the 6% as it were

3-6%. Which means the chances that he raped her are greater than the chances she is lying about it.

Hence, I believe her.

edd1337 Mon 19-Sep-11 18:27:01

Yet there is still a possibility she is lieing. I believe in innocent until proven guilty so I believe him

frumpyq Mon 19-Sep-11 18:31:06

So much dirty water in this case that it was obvious he wasn't going to trial.

He doesn't ring right.

She doesn't ring right.

Giving him anonymity would have helped this case no end.

A very small possibility. The probability of her lying is smaller than the probability of him lying. But hey, lets drag the feminist section through the mud and accuse victims of lying. Cheers, mate...

scottishmummy Mon 19-Sep-11 18:32:46

hes an unsavoury man.and insincere in explanation
