Wait honey, I need to sign this contract first…

4 Apr

Just wow on this one. An article by NEWSLIVE.com.au states that apparently in an independent state of Australia, women should sign a contract before having sex. Huh? What? Why is this? Ohhh, read on…

An Independent state MP has suggested women should sign a contract before having sex in order to prevent men being subject to false rape allegations, News Limited has reported.

In a response to proposed laws making it an offence to continue a sex act with a person who changes their mind about consent, South Australian MP Ann Bressington suggested to Parliament men should carry a sex contract to prevent being accused of rape.

Are you f’ing KIDDING me??? As if it’s not hard enough for women to come forward about being raped, now they have to sign a contract before sex because people think they’re lying??!

Ann Brennington states, “This Bill makes men guilty until proven innocent and they will have no defence.” Okay then, Ann, what are you doing to protect innocent women from being raped??? I agree that people who “cry rape” have absolutely no excuse and are ruining the judicial system for those who actually are violated, and yes, this needs to end somehow…but you’re putting ALL of the blame and fault on the woman and that’s just not right. Worse than that, you’re making it even harder for someone who truly WAS raped to come forward about it. Remember, peeps, 1 in 4 women are raped and only 16% of these rapes get reported – check out possible reasons why women don’t report rape in this undeniably real and honest blog post.

Women are already:
– Subjected to painful rape kits
– Further harassment by the rapist and their supporters
– Mocking by strangers and trusted ones alike
– “Questions” that are more like accusations by police and others

…and by the time it’s all over, they find out the police don’t believe them. Cause we needed another reason to worry.

The ONE good thing about this is that it’s somewhat two-fold…men without a signed contract could be charged with sexual assault. But considering the amount of cases that actually get anywhere now…well, let’s not hold our breath on that one.
