A man in Pakistan who sexually assaulted a woman was ‘forgiven’ by the victim’s family after said man agreed that his sister could be raped by the woman’s brother. This is the kind of stuff movie scriptwriters come up with to get people’s emotion meter going way over the threshold, except this is not a movie.
There are instances where you see or hear something so ludicrous it leaves you shell-shocked. People, this is one of those times: Yes, the man was not going to face legal action so long he ‘let’ his victim’s brother rape his sister, WHILE THEY WATCHED!
And did the brother do the deed? YES! The very next day, he ‘raped’ the rapist’s sister!
This dastardly act brings us to this point: we are still out here trying to explain (what otherwise is) the simple concept of ‘consent’ as regards sexual relations only to now be presented with the twisted concept of revenge rape consent.
How did it lead to that, I wonder? Maybe the event played out something like this:
“Chief. Mommy. We totally understand your daughter’s pain and how everybody in your family is feeling right now. You see, what our son has done, we don’t condone it! And God Almighty will judge him!”
“No, no, no, don’t tell me nonsense! His stupidity has stripped her dignity away! Now, who will marry our daughter? Tell me, who?! Even your son won’t take her! You’re here talking about feeling our pain! He has brought shame to us!”
“That’s it, Chief! If it is the shame, we are willing to share it with your family. Anything you want, we will do. Whatever way my family can appease you, even slightly, for this horror, we are ready to do it.”
“So if I say my son should rape your daughter, you will agree?”
“I’m sure our daughter would understand it needs to be done. Yes, if that’s what it takes to make this go away quietly, so be it.”
“Then so be it! My son will have his way with your daughter tomorrow. We will arrange the location.”
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how revenge rape consent came to be.
Here’s the kicker, though. A group of people this dysfunctional and twisted is bound to make really dumb decisions. The families went to file a legal document ensuring the case is settled out of court and it was during this process the matter came to a policeman’s knowledge, leading the cop to report it to his superiors.
Members of both families, including all of four women, have now been detained. If this happened to you, how would you react to it all?
