Pour la Cour de cassation italienne, un viol est moins grave si la victime n’est pas vierge

Le Monde.fr : Pour la Cour de cassation italienne, un viol est moins grave si la victime n’est pas vierge: “[L]es cinq hommes qui siègent à la plus haute institution judiciaire italienne ont rendu un jugement accordant des circonstances atténuantes à un homme coupable d’avoir violé une adolescente car sa victime avait déjà eu des expériences sexuelles. La décision de la Cour de cassation a déclenché un véritable tollé notamment chez les associations de protection de victimes. “

Who the hell are these men sitting in the Italian Supreme Court? Who are they to say sexual assualt is less damaging to non-virgins, especially when they’re still talking about a 14 yr old!?!

Sexual assualt is wrong – young, old, virgin, non-virgin. It’s just wrong.
