So with no empirical evidence to back up her wildly speculative, evo-psych crap, she offers the following:
She continued: “In a rape case, the courts – in defence of a man – would select as many women as they could for the jury, because women go against women.
“Whether in a deep-seated animalistic way, going back billions of years, or from a sense of tribal jealousy or just antagonism, I don’t know, but other women on a rape case would say she was asking for it. The only reason I can think of is that they’re sexually jealous.” [taken from this SMH article]
She then goes on to say date rape is an area men and women need to work out between themselves. What without the aid of the legal system? Or without the incoherent ramblings of every deluded celebrity who decides to weigh in?
[Um...happy to admit my ignorance, but have humans even been AROUND for billions of years???? What about primates? Or is this gendered backstabbing quality we women apparently possess an animalistic quality of the soupy nothingness we're supposed to have come from? What qualities did this soupy nothingness pass on to men? And what to celebrities?]
