I'm sorry but a woman being locked up against her will for forced sex is rape not a bloody romp. This is disgraceful.

You are right.

Write to the editor to complain.

CatchAPlaneToBarcelona Fri 12-Feb-16 16:53:44

quite right its bloody awful.

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 12-Feb-16 16:54:17

Romp is quite the typo for rape.


Griphook Fri 12-Feb-16 16:57:04

It's unfortunately quite common!

SonjasSister Fri 12-Feb-16 16:57:05

Was she a girl, either? Doubt it.

Ugh, this is vile.

This family have been through so much, how can no one at this paper have questioned that headline.

It's fucking disgusting.

Vile is right. angry

That's deplorable journalism. Do IPSO deal with this sort of thing now?


MrsOlaf78 Fri 12-Feb-16 17:02:14

I'm guessing she was more than "upset" as well - bloody traumatised I should think. He makes it sound like something from a Carry On film.

fakenamefornow Fri 12-Feb-16 17:02:28

Was that in today's paper? If not what date is it?

fakenamefornow Fri 12-Feb-16 17:03:25

Oh, an name of the journalist who wrote it.

I posted this in the feminist topic .
I don't think I've ever been so angry at a newspaper article before.

ClaudetteWyms Fri 12-Feb-16 17:10:58

That is vile.

It's a great shame that The Sun can't follow in the footsteps of the NOTW.

bloody hell! That's disgusting. She was only 18. Rape culture should not be jollied up as romping. Makes me think that journo equates trying to rape a teenager as some sort of kiss chase.

Disgusting. I hate how these bloody rags sensationalise stories, there is no compassion for the family. My dm died in awful circumstances a number of years ago and the disgusting Daily mail sensationalised her death, it still upsets me now. People's tragedy and suffering is just another headline to them.

If it had happened to a male soldier I can only imagine how differently it would be treated.

BBC online is hardly better. I made a complaint a couple of days ago about one of their headlines. I won't repeat it here as involved a infant death and would hate to draw bereaved parents' attention to it but I despair at the ignorance shown by all levels of the media. Nothing is too low for them to sensationalise.

So suspected rape and murder (this is the Deepcut case?) = romp.

Just disgusting.

Shallishanti Fri 12-Feb-16 17:27:33

this is why I will never buy the Sun
shame you can't boycott something twice

"Was she a girl, either? Doubt it."

Cheryl James was only 18 when she died.

Spudlet Fri 12-Feb-16 17:30:15

SonjasSister she was 18. Poor, poor lass.

How could anyone write a headline like that and think it was ok? Have they no empathy at all?

Followyourart Fri 12-Feb-16 17:31:22

This has made me rage!!!! That fucking newspaper!!!!

Funny really because the Metro is just as bad, and that's free - can be picked up on buses etc, there are lots handed out at my work, greatest propaganda tool going..
