"I just wanted to be recognised as a victim" by Jay Knott (10/21/11) ⇌ (Feminism)
Don't we all, dear?
"I just wanted to be recognised as a victim. I wanted someone to say officially that I was not a liar. And here it was... I felt relieved, soothed, blessed. I would have liked them to believe that there had been an attempted rape, because I felt sure we had a chance to win."
Tristane Banon, who claims to be a victim of sexual assualt by Dominique Strauss-Kahn, feels 'relieved, soothed, blessed'. Maybe it loses something in translation, but in any case about someone accused of a major crime, talk of how the alleged victim 'feels' makes me throw up...
