No offence, no defence, just jest pure & simple
On rape comment, CBI Director caught on the wrong foot
Whether it was a slip of tongue or unintentional, CBI Director Ranjit Sinha seemed to have been found on the wrong foot when he stated: "If you can't prevent a rape, enjoy it". That comment may not be deliberate. It could be a slip of tongue even. Whatever it is, he has since apologized and the matter should end.
Not long ago, a cine actor had defined rape as an "accidental sex".
It is life. People will continue to see things in their own way and use different language to describe the same situations.
I am reminded of an incident a friend of mine narrated to me as a joke. And a joke is a joke. It should invite no offence, no protest.
He said that a woman who had charged a person with rape was being cross-examined by the defence lawyer in a court. Putting a question to the woman, the defence lawyer asked, "Is it not a fact that after putting some resistance in the beginning, you submitted yourself to him?"
The village woman in a crude language retorted, "Vakil Sahb, tell me. If a person puts something sweet in your mouth forcibly, does it taste sour?" ***
