A McDonald's in Shepherdsville, Kentucky recieved a prank call, the caller saying he was a police officer and asking the assistant maganer to strip search a woman whom the caller said had stolen from a customer.
The assistant manager then handed the phone to her fiancee for him to perform the strip-search. The prank-caller then told the fiancee to perform sexual acts upon the woman, which he did.
The whole thing was caught on surveillence video.
The prank-caller was aquitted of the charges brought against him. The assistant manager was fired and was convicted of a misdemeanor. Her fiancee is now serving 5 1/2 years in prison for the incident. The "victim" sued McDonals'd for $200m and recieved a victory and $6.1m.
Did she run out of the room screaming rape? No, she went along with the whole thing, it's on the video. Did the thought ever cross her mind that a perfect stranger is not allowed to strip-search her? I guess not. How about the absurdity of a cop telling said stranger to have sex with her? Nope. Is she mentally retarded or handicapped in any way? No, the article would have said so. Is she a young impressionable girl? No, she's 21 years old, fully responsible for her actions.
Now, I'm not saying that the prank-call, nor the actions of the guy who strip searched her was an upright moral decision; The guy was obviously taking advantage of the situation.
But the fact of the matter is, there is basically two kinds of sex as far as the law is concerned; consentual and rape. This woman was definitely not raped, she went along with the whole thing. And it's hard to say she's not smart enough to see the absurdity in the whole thing.
Here's what it boils down to: an opportunistic pig of a man had consensual sex with a willing woman. The media gets a hold of it, embarasses the crap out of her, she feels stupid and wants to get back at people. She doesn't sue the guy who she had sex with, she doesn't sue the assistant manager, nor does she sue the prank-caller. No, she sues the person with the deepest pockets; McDonald's.
A pervert gets 5 1/2 years in prison and the 21yo woman he had consensual sex with skips away with $6.1m paid to her by a company who had no fault in the incident. All because she felt stupid. That's obviously sexist. I won't defend what he did, but having consensual sex and one person getting 5 1/2 years in prison with the other walking away with $6.1m is rediculous and sexist of the worst kind.
