No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!
The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html
It’s time for all countries to stand up and say no more special treatment based on gender, race or sexual orientation.
I heard this and was instantly disgusted but haven’t seen it from a reliable source (daily mail makes shit up all the time so apologies for being a little suspect) but regardless I’m aware of other cases where women have gotten away with violent crimes with basically a “don’t do it again” rather than prison like male counter parts are and it infuriates me for numerous reasons one of them being that these cases are used against the cause of feminism.
I mean this story made my boyfriend utter the words “I’m not a feminist because I believe in equality” despite previously being happy to use the word feminist.
