Hence my point about empathy and understanding. (Ass) Rape is not something that happens to "other people" or in some land of make-believe. Do I really need to dig out that post from a couple of years ago?

Do you really want to argue about this?

I made my point. You made yours.

Abernathy made a good point too.

Season of goodwill and that.

Aye, fair enough.

Tis the season of goodwill to all (consenting) men but I will one day out that cunt who is a sitting Tory MP and who left me in a rohypnolled, crumpled heap at age 19.

The problem with expecting others to watch their words, when they are not using those words in a deliberately derogatory manner, can be a short journey towards sanctimony.

It's a shame some people can't grasp this very simple concept.

It doesn't take much intelligence to recognise when someone is being malicious or when they're just using a figure of speech, which may be insensitive sometimes, but certainly not something to start a witch hunt over or engining public apologies. It feels very forced.

Swann has apologised very publicly for his his crass and insensitive comments.

I rise to my feet and applaud your cheer-leading for the "PC gorn mad" brigade long after this story has slipped off the news agenda.

It's for the best that he did apologise but I think it is murky ground. Some people will be genuinely offended by his comments and he wouldn't have wanted that. Others, however, are just trying too hard to be sanctimonious and feign outrage and his apology will sadly be to placate them, too.

He'll use the phrase again in the future among his mates, I'm almost certain. His apology was forced upon him so he'll probably be a bit more careful about where he says it!

All that sanctimony and faux outrage from the perpetually offended professional whiners that inhabit the subversive midsts of Rape Crisis and the annual half million victims of sexual violence.

I am going to be as charitable as I can and presume Stockholm Syndrome.

Those will be the people who may be genuinely offended, as I said. Even so, though, I imagine a lot will release he meant no malice.

Problem is, the same Mailites complaining about the over zealous police and waxing lyrical about the freedom of their youth are the same buggers who assume every young person's up to no good and describe any hanging out as "anti-social behaviour" - i.e. the same sort of twats who called the police in the first place.
