[TW sexual assault] Police officer ejaculates on woman, and is found not guilty of felony charges
No one disputes that an on-duty Irvine police officer got an erection and ejaculated on a motorist during an early-morning traffic stop in Laguna Beach. The female driver reported it, DNA testing confirmed it and officer David Alex Park finally admitted it.
When the case went to trial, however, defense attorney Al Stokke argued that Park wasn’t responsible for making sticky all over the woman’s sweater. He insisted that she made the married patrolman make the mess—after all, she was on her way home from work as a dancer at Captain Cream Cabaret.
“She got what she wanted,” said Stokke. “She’s an overtly sexual person.”

This is enraging…. and people claim rape culture doesn’t exist.
I just don’t understand this verdict. How the hell can that jury think that squirting bodily fluids on another person without their consent is at all OK?
“But she’s a stripper blah blah victim-blaming blah.”
By that logic, it should be legal to throw fecal matter at sanitation workers. Or to throw blood and vomit at doctors and nurses. Being a sex worker doesn’t give everyone else the right to have sexual contact with you.
“She got what she wanted”
Awful. Just awful. Victim-blaming at its finest. I’m pretty sure you would get thrown the FUCK out of a strip club if you tapped a dancer in the shoulder and then jizzed on her. Unacceptable behavior under any circumstances.
“A jury of one woman and 11 men—many white and in their 50s or 60s—agreed with Stokke. On Feb. 2, after a half-day of deliberations, they found Park not guilty of three felony charges that he’d used his badge to win sexual favors during the December 2004 traffic stop.”
I puked a little in my heart. He admitted to it and yet…he got away? That’s fucking disgusting.
Um, and they’re ignoring the fact that it ended up on her sweater? Even if he found her so attractive that he couldn’t prevent himself from orgasming on the side of the highway, shouldn’t it have ended up, y’know, inside his pants?

Let’s try this, for about the nine thousandth time:
No woman “asks” to be raped.
It doesn’t matter what she’s wearing. It doesn’t matter if her shirt is cut low or her skirt is cut high, it doesn’t matter if she’s wearing “fuck-me pumps” or leather boots or fishnet stockings. It doesn’t matter if she’s got a DD chest, curvy hips, eyes slathered with dark make-up or pout-y lips.

The miniskirt made him do it - ginmar, Daily Kos (check out the link for the full article this is a tiny excerpt of)
"The ‘she asked for it’ myth always starts with a mini skirt. And a tube top. Or maybe a halter top. Or a tank top. Whatever. The exact length of the skirt is never specified. Knee length? Butt length? Above the knee? What about shorts? What about the fact that women in long skirts get raped? What about the fact that most rapes are commited by men known to the victim? How about the fact that babies, old women, nuns, and coma patients have been raped? No, let’s ignore those facts. When one has demolished this argument easily enough, other factors are introduced as the goal posts get dug up, and cement gets poured for their new location. The most obvious thing about rape is not the clothing of the victim, but the presence of a rapist.
She asked for it goes something like this: a woman wearing skimpy clothes wants attention, though she denies it. And therefore, she is asking for whatever she gets, any and allattention, and cannot blame anyone but herself for anything that happens to her. (The habit of using passive voice to describe sexual assault is extremely interesting, isn’t it?) This indicates that wherever she is, her outfit arouses great hostility amongst so many men that apparently they are not able to be controlled——or maybe nobody tries. Maybe this feeling is shared by authorities. The naturalness and completeness of this response to her outfit is never questioned. When one examines the notion that this will be the inevitable response to her outfit, one is given the impression that she is at risk from huge crowds of men, and that there is no hope of appeal or escape, that she can be safe anywhere, because her dress arouses great hostility in men.”
