The idiotic lying troll Eladar ignores the fact that this thread's original post cites the case
of a man (age 18) who raped--he later admitted it--a girl (age 16) and got away with it.
He never was even arrested for rape, let alone put on trial for it.
Thordis Elva (age 16) was raped by Tom Stranger (age 18) in her own bed after a school dance.
"Can I forgive the man who raped me?
Thordis Elva was raped aged 16. Years later, she emailed Tom Stranger, the man who
raped her, beginning a raw, painful healing process documented in their book South of
Forgiveness. In this extract, they meet to find a way forward "
"Tom described how he felt deserving of my body that night, without any concern for me,
and consequently convinced himself that what he did was sex and not rape. The
following nine years were marked by denial, in which he did his best to outrun the past,
until I confronted him in a pivotal email that changed our lives for ever.
I’ve been asked why I didn’t press charges immediately, and the simple answer to that
question is that I was a 16-year-old girl with naive notions about rape. Rapes were
committed by armed lunatics, the kind of sensationalised monsters you saw on TV and
read about in the papers. The fact that Tom wasn’t a monster, but a person who made
an awful decision, made it harder for me to see his crime for what it was. That way, the
demonisation of perpetrators in mainstream media got in the way of my recovery. By the
time I was able to identify what had happened to me as rape, Tom had moved to the
other side of the planet, far from the jurisdiction of the Icelandic police."
