The city’s chief prosecutor says victims of indecent assault in some cases should show their attackers compassion if it is their first offence.
“Men will actually respect women more if they see women showing compassion to them and realizing they are better off without a conviction,” …
“There’s this boy-girl thing in life,” he said. “You have young men and women out there interacting socially. And when an incident happens and a man gets carried away … is it social misbehavior or is it a crime?
Zervos was responding to complaints to the Post that the city’s prosecutors and judges were overly lenient with sex offenders. His comment also follows Secretary for Security Lai Tung-kwok’s remark last month that women should drink less alcohol to avoid being raped.
In Hong Kong, indecent assault cases heard in magistrates’ courts are usually dealt with by fines or a bind over - a good behaviour order under which charges are withdrawn as long as the offender agrees to abide by the court’s terms. Failure to comply carries a penalty of six months’ imprisonment, according to the Magistrates Ordinance….
Puja Kapai, deputy director of the Centre for Comparative and Public Law at the University of Hong Kong, said:
“If [assaults] are downplayed as youthful folly because the man deserves to be protected from the damage a criminal record can do, does a victim of sexual assault not deserve an acknowledgement on record that she was wronged and to see the perpetrator punished so that she can heal?
“When the legal process trivialises such incidents, the message that goes out … is that assailants can get away with it.”
Jacobs: Those With Native American/Indigenous Heritage Must Repent(by RWW Blog)
“If you have in your bloodline any animus [sic], any Native American blood, for instance — not all Native Americans worshiped the serpent or crocodile, many did — but you might want to renounce that and repent for the generational iniquity,” she explained.
“If you are — perhaps you’re Mexican and you might have indigenous blood in you or Mayan blood, those who have Aztec blood in any way, you need to repent for the sin of animism before you begin to deal with this spirit.”
Two of the three speakers are man hating feminists who oppose equal rights for men, boys, and fathers. Reddit is the only place where the voices of men, asking for EQUAL PROTECTION, can be heard.
These individuals want to silence that voice. The sexist feminist monologue is already the staple narrative in politics, academia, and in the letter of the law. Where can men demand equality, if not here?

Jeffrey Dahmer: “If it all happens naturalistically, what’s the need for a God? Can’t I set my own rules? Who owns me? I own myself.” [Biography, “Jeffrey Dahmer: The Monster Within,” A&E, 1996.]
Naturalists like to stress that you don’t need God or religion to be good. Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins even suggest that leaving God out of the equation actually allows one to be more moral because then our moral acts are authentic, motivated by deep conviction rather than by having a divine gun to our heads.
Even so, Dahmer’s logic is compelling. We need some external reference point — God — to justify being good. And that justification is significant in its own right. Without it, we can still rationalize particular evils, but we cannot dispense with the category of evil entirely.

That’s utterly retarded.
It must really suck to be you.
I don’t need any god to justify being good. I don’t even need to justify it.
