“Why Couldn’t You Just Keep Your Knees Together?”

0


A Canadian judge is facing a severe amount of criticism and potential removal from the bench after asking an alleged rape victim why she couldn’t “just keep [her]knees together.” If that’s not infuriating enough, wait until you hear the rest of his misogynistic questions, comments, and “excuses” as to why he (or the rapist) isn’t to blame.

Camp is now undergoing counseling and training with a psychologist regarding his comments, and have publicly apologized multiple times. An upcoming hearing will decide the future of Camp’s judicial career. As for the young woman, Camp’s decision was overturned after the case was appealed, and she is now in a new (and hopefully more fair, and less discriminatory) trial that will bring her justice once and for all.
