Egyptian general admits ‘virginity checks’ conducted on protesters – CNN.com
“We didn’t want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren’t virgins in the first place,” the general said. “None of them were (virgins).”
Just off the top of my head, there are four things wrong with that statement:
- Are they really saying women who aren’t virgins can’t be raped?
- Isn’t a forced “virginity check” a kind of sexual assault?
- Were the men protesting asked to prove they were virgins?
- Why the hell would the anyone protesting have to be a virgin in the first place? What does that have to do with anything?
