Jurors in Cork were asked to consider the underwear a SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL was wearing when she was raped by a 27-year-old man.— Courtney Peterson (@_courtneymaria) November 13, 2018
Join the cause in solidarity, can’t believe this girl was subjected to these comments after such a traumatic event.#ThisIsNotConsent #Ibelieveher pic.twitter.com/PfkYERulgY
As a mum of two little girls and step mums to two girls it terrifies me that the world we live in, dictates they may have to justify the choice of underwear they choose to wear should they become victim to abhorrent crimes! #ThisIsNotConsent This doesn’t mean it’s my fault! pic.twitter.com/SdQXGJCCBJ— Jade (@JadeRandall14) November 15, 2018
I can wear whatever kind of f*cking knickers I want and it doesn’t mean I’m asking for the shift, or for your touching, or for sex.— Síona Cahill (@AnTaobhRua) November 14, 2018
That should be the end of the story.
‘Consent’ is informed, active, enthusiastic, and ongoing. It isn’t clothing.#Consent #ThisIsNotConsent
You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front.
Can't get over this barrister asking jury to reflect on a teen's underwear & if her lace thong suggested she was "open" to meeting someone. Wondering what kind of underwear suggests a man is "open" to meeting someone? Any legal experts know? Appalling. https://t.co/S8BgVR8DtK— Roisin Ingle (@roisiningle) November 7, 2018
I'm not even being funny. It's a genuine question. Because I have a suspicion that they would just find other reasons to protect the lives and careers of their precious rapists.— seriously hilary (@seriouslyhilary) November 7, 2018
Scary that some ppl think women's choice of underwear indicate a desire to have sex. Why those knickers? Maybe she liked them/they were on sale/her mum bought them for her...instead of asking y she wore lacy knickers we should be asking why he didn't obtain enthusiastic consent. https://t.co/U1mQ1iVNsD— Taryn De Vere (@TarynDeVere) November 7, 2018
So it looks like one can "allegedly rape" with impunity if a young lady wears lacy underwear?? No wonder rape cases are not reported. The law is always for the alleged rapist!!!— Michael Wesley (@Michael19987318) November 8, 2018
