[紹介]カナダの「進んだ」セクハラ事情

スウェーデンでも「明白な合意のない性行為は犯罪」とする法律が施行されましたが、自称フェミニストが首相のリベラル先進国・カナダでは、同意の有無に関する「進んだ」事件が起こっていたので紹介します。

これまでに男の政治家の性的不適切行為を告発・追及してきた女の議員が、自分が「力をバックにした不適切行為」を告発されて調査の対象となっています。

Moore told Trudeau that she went to Pacetti’s Ottawa hotel room in March 2014 at 2 a.m. to have another drink. She admits she never said “no” to his sexual advances and never attempted to leave the room. And here’s the rub: she provided the condom for the sex they had.

So, according to Moore, the above-mentioned, close-talking Weir should have been able to pick up on “non-verbal cues”; but when she pulled a condom out of her handbag during foreplay at 2 a.m. in a man’s hotel room, that “non-verbal cue” should have been ignored. *1

Men must now be able to read women’s “non-verbal cues” while simultaneously only accepting “explicit verbal consent.” It’s heads I win, tails you lose, for the likes of Moore.

女は「愛し合っていた」と主張し、

We were lovers,” she said, adding they had discussed long-term plans, of which the plane ticket was evidence.

“Maybe he lied to me and never loved me, but at the time I was sure we were lovers.”

Kirkland, when reached by phone in Manitoba, maintained he had never been in a relationship with Moore.

“God no! Relationships mean both parties have to be involved,” he said. 

男は「力の不均衡」を主張しています。

"Look, I'm not crying rape," Kirkland said. "I don't like to think of myself as a survivor. I prefer 'thriver.' But what she did was inappropriate. Was I a willing participant? I guess it depends on your definition of willing. There was a power imbalance. There was a level of authority there."

おまけ 

カナダのこちらの事件では判事が暴走したようです。
