True! The gentle sentence is like telling women they can not hope to have any sense of closure to the enormous anguish they have to live with by taking the legal recourse.
Its like telling victims of sexual assault they can go to hell.
Its like telling men who have anything to recommend themselves that they can get away with raping a woman if they excel somewhere.
Its like denigrating the worth of a woman, believing that a man’s potential is more than that of a woman. And just because she was left shaken up for the rest of her life, she was already of less value to us. So lets not lose an athlete here.
More importantly its like telling men of means that the legal system itself has their backs.
Reinforcing the rape culture that does not make America that great.
