Kevin Myers: Feminist animosity and appetite for victimhood have utterly confused the criminal code on rape

Kevin Myers

Rape -- as a subject -- is almost beyond useful discussion. Whatever exchanges occur are formulaic and predictable, and involve the usual authorised quangos and semi-quangos, all of them feminist and agenda-driven.

Why would anyone outside this authorised group enter a conversation when they know in advance they are going to be ignored?

Only feminists are allowed to have opinions on rape. Add the total silence from the entire rape-crisis industry on the derisory seven years' imprisonment given to the woman who raped her teenage son, then you get a sense of the disparity, hypocrisy and selectivity with which this issue is dealt.
