I know that I’m not about anything political or anything like this, but really, this is bullshit. Rape is already a crime that is hard to prosecute, and it is laughable how many rapist don’t ever see the inside of a cell. A crime that affects woment is wholely ignored. And there are a lot of reasons for this. Media is one of them. The presentation of women in media is part of the problem.

CNN’s Kyung Lah reports on controversy in California over an old law. If a suspect impersonates a woman’s husband during an attack, it’s considered rape. But if the victim is unmarried and the suspect is impersonating her boyfriend, the law does not classify it as rape.

  1. Not to sound like an insensitive male, but I’m a bit confused. Exactly how often does a rapist impersonate another man in his victim’s life when sexually assaulting her? Maybe I’m missing the obvious, but it doesn’t seem to me like this is something that happens very often. Unless we’re specifically talking about rape by deception/fraud here, in which case I can understand why this would be facepalm-worthy.

    • Well, it was dark and she thought it was her boyfriend. He didn’t denied it. It is rape.by fraud. The upsetting thing to me is only about 3% of rapist goes to jail in the first place. So this is just another big fuck you to women and I live in this state.

    • There is a video that goes with it too, were they tried to fix the loop hole and the state government said sorry, it doesn’t matter because of overcrowding.
