I Am Disgusted!**Trigger Warning, mature content**

I have recently come out of my shame pit a little to confess to my dad that I was sexually assaulted roughly 4 years ago by a man who I loved(and who I was under the impression loved me,god the stupid things you do when you’re 15), which means that I can now talk about it much more openly online. However this post isn’t about my experience, it’s about my shock and horror regarding something that was brought to my attention. This did happen in the US but the core attitude is what I find particularly disgusting, humiliating and down right wrong!

A judge has blamed a sexual assault victim for her assault because she was at a bar the particular night this disgusting piece of human filth walked in, flashing his police badge to get free entry and put his hands up her skirt and into her genitals! This is outrageous! I don’t care if someone(male or female) is drunk, is a prostitute or walking around the street naked they are NEVER to blame for someone else’s lack of control and total disregard for any sense of personal space, or consent for that matter. Now if this kind of statement was to come from the scum that assaulted her I’d be less shocked, just as outraged but less shocked, but to come from a judge from the very person who is suppose to be protecting the victim and the public from ‘people’ like this is beyond unacceptable!

If I was the prosecution I’d be appealing the sentence on any legal standing possible and trying to find a way to sue the judge for emotional trauma and defamation and if that’s gonna happen anywhere it’s more likely to be in the US(no offense intended but it’s been shown that more people sue in the US then Australia). This judge shouldn’t be a judge any longer, the ‘man’ should have spent time in prison and he should have had to register as a sex offender…since that’s what he is.

Please sign this petition to let it be known that the judges behavior was unacceptable and that she should be disbarred/not allowed to be a judge any more! http://act.watchdog.net/petitions/1352?n=1542222.GqSafk

Just as an end note, I’d like to assure people that I wont be posting heaps of petition links all the time in an aim to get people to sign but this I found to be so disgusting and shocking that I feel I should try everything possible to ensure no one else experiences this again.
