People not gifts

From John Dewar's trial:

Today the court heard evidence from police Inspector Alastair Williams who said Dewar had told him about receiving an "unusual gift" from either Shipton or Rickards in the form of group sex.
I think it's the casual way women's humanity is dismissed that disturbs me so much in this quote. There are so many men who talk and think of women like this. Brad Shipton and his mates can't exist without all the other men who normalise the idea that sex is something that happens to women, not with women.

  1. This is so creepy and sick. Just revolting. And I wonder why any woman would be party to such horrible treatment. You have to wonder about some kind of coercion.

    The whole thing makes my skin crawl.
