To that poor woman whose life has been made hell and no doubt continue to be made hell, I still believe you and will stand with you.

So do I #idontbelievehim

It seemed to be a case of judicial slut shaming - the clock has been turned back a couple of decades. I can't believe he got away with it - I #dontbelievehim either.

Actually I do believe him.. . . . bear with me

I believe that he has no concept of consent.

I believe he thinks he has the right to stick his penis in any woman at any time and she has no right to say no 'cause he's a footballer isnt he.

I believe that he still has no idea that any of what he did was wrong.

I believe that he has now been given a 'free pass'.

I believe that the Court of Appeals; the Judge in the case, and the (at least some of the) jury still fully believe in rape myths.

I believe that this case has set women's rights back decades.

I believe that the brave woman who put herself through 2 trials deserves a medal and I hope she is getting all the support she needs/wants.

I believe that there are some that will see this as 'proof' that women are scum, but I hope that this will wake some people up to how misogynist the world really is.

I thought you said you weren't eloquent on another thread GiveMeRitz. That was very eloquent and very true.

I think some of the posts on this subject show how misandrist a large portion of women are.

And when a woman can falsely accuse a man of rape (not specifically ched evans but any man on the street) and not even be named afterewards...what does that say about the rights of a man? Or when a woman can get a bit drunk, sleep with a guy and then claim not to remember later so he must be a rapist....

ChocChocPorridge Fri 14-Oct-16 20:13:25

Fuck that Gh05 - we've heard the evidence too, and she doesn't have to say a word (and didn't say a word), we know what he did, and we hold our opinions of it, and that's not misandrist - I know that what he did my partner would never do, I know plenty of men would never do.

I don't hate men, I hate rapists.

ChocChocPorridge Fri 14-Oct-16 20:14:47

Well, unless you're saying my sample of men is unrepresentative, and most men actually would behave that way?

In which case, hell yes, sign me up to the misandry club. Personally, I think that most men are better than that, and don't share your low expectations of them.

RufusTheSpartacusReindeer Fri 14-Oct-16 21:25:27

I will stand with you

CharlieSierra Fri 14-Oct-16 21:58:08

A sad and depressing day to be the mother of daughters.

I stand with you.

Great post GiveMeRitz.

I will echo slightly what choc said. I don't hate men, I hate rapists. I said it on another thread and will gladly say it again: I will stand with you.

I stand with you and I stand with the tens (possibly hundreds) of women who are starting today not knowing what happened last night or knowing and starting the long road to surviving.

I can not say it to any of you in person but I can set up a regular donation to Rape Crisis so you do have some to support you in person.

LassWiTheDelicateAir Sun 16-Oct-16 10:56:36

I stand by her.

Felascloak Sun 16-Oct-16 20:37:51

Yes ritz.
Don't tell me you aren't eloquent again grin

MostlyHet Sun 16-Oct-16 20:51:45

I stand by her. Brave, brave woman, to go through that ordeal twice. I too hope she has the support she needs.

And I believe the decision of the appeal court and the subsequent decision of the jury are complete travesties, and (not being a lawyer) I completely fail to see why a certain WAG cannot be prosecuted for attempting to pervert the course of justice for her face book messages drawing attention to the 50 grand bribe reward, and pleading with a witness to change his story. (And I salute that witness for having the integrity to turn down the bung!)

gratesnakes Sun 16-Oct-16 22:06:01

There's a go fund me page been set up for her

LassWiTheDelicateAir Mon 17-Oct-16 03:20:15

Thanks. Donated. I'm one of the anonymous.

Xenophile Mon 17-Oct-16 07:45:24

I stand with her.

The donation site is a brilliant idea from a wonderful caring woman, thanks for posting it grate

scallopsrgreat Mon 17-Oct-16 13:18:12

Donated too (and bumped thread).

WhisperingLoudly Mon 17-Oct-16 13:22:23

Also donated.

WhisperingLoudly Mon 17-Oct-16 13:23:01

Which I mention to keep this thread bumped.

It's a public display of the support she has.

LassWiTheDelicateAir Mon 17-Oct-16 15:42:31

Should we get this moved to Chat or AIBU for traffic?

Felascloak Mon 17-Oct-16 16:01:09

There is a thread in one of those about the go fund me already

scallopsrgreat Mon 17-Oct-16 16:34:15

The fund has doubled since I donated just three hours ago.
