The next time people conflate the patriarchy with “men” I am going to bring up the vile pustule that is Judge Jacqueline Hatch to prove that you don’t need a dick to be a dick who punishes women for the crime of not being men.
Recently, a former police officer named Robb Gary Evans was found guilty of sexual assault. Evans, in an attempt to win the award for biggest shithead in Arizona (he’s up against some stiff competition in that state, I’ll tell you what), “drove drunk to a bar, showed his badge at the door to get in sans cover, walked up to a friend of a friend and put his hand up her skirt so he could “run his fingers” across her genitals without consent. When bouncers threw him out, Evans told them he was a cop and could have them arrested”.
It is totally illegal to grab another person’s genitals without their consent. As a cop, Robb Gary Evans should have known that. Of course he should have also known that driving drunk and abusing his authority was illegal too. Regardless of his knowledge that groping an unwilling victim is sexual assault, the asshat did it anyway.
However, after Robb Gary Evans was found guilty of sexual assault, Judge Jacqueline Hatch decided to give him NO JAIL TIME. Why? Because 1) he is such such a nice guy and 2) the victim was in a bar with a vagina so what did the big ol’ whore expect?
I am not fucking kidding you.
Hatch actually said to the woman who was assaulted: “If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you,” Hatch told the victim. “I hope you look at what you’ve been through and try to take something positive out of it. You learned a lesson about friendship and you learned a lesson about vulnerability.” Hatch said that the victim was not to blame in the case, but that all women must be vigilant against becoming victims. “When you blame others, you give up your power to change,” Hatch said that her mother used to say.
Okay, so the victim was not to blame but if she hadn’t been in the bar with a vagina she wouldn’t have been vulnerable and she should be more vigilant and she shouldn’t blame others. Huh. That really, REALLY looks like victim blaming to me.
I know when I go to a bar with friends I am always expecting a drunken cop to bully his way into the building and feel my vagina. That’s why I leave my vagina at home. Or at least wear a burka so I won’t arouse his lust (which would be all my fault, not his) and a chastity belt to help him fight off his base urges by preventing his access to my dirty lady box. Better yet, I just stay home, where women belong after sundown. Only skanks and sluts leave the house and go into public spaces so they are totally asking for it if someone paws at their crotch. That is just common sense, people.
After everyone on earth found out what a thunderdouche Judge Hatch had been and a petition to oust her from office got 10,000 signatures, Judge Hatch issued an apology to the victim. I am sure it was completely sincere and written after realizing she was a misogynist (yes, women can be misogynists too) twatwaffle who had verbally assaulted the victim, as opposed to an attempt to get her ass out of the hellfire the public was raining down on her head.
I am also sure that the monkeys flying out of my butt all agree with me.
