The Rape Discount in Palimony: American Judge Orders Woman to Pay Rapist Ex-Husband

November 4, 2011

In a shockingly disgusting move, a woman filed for divorce from her husband, after he assaulted her and forcibly made her put her mouth over his penis, with a California judge then forcing the woman to pay her ex $1,000/month in “spousal support,” which the woman says is the “rape discount”:

Crystal Harris of Carlsbad, Calif., had been financially supporting her unemployed, abusive husband Shawn Harris for years. But after he sexually assaulted her in 2008, she took him to court.

The jury heard a damning audiotape of the attack secretly recorded by Crystal Harris, and her husband was convicted of forced oral copulation.

Even so, in 2010, the year their divorce became finalized, he requested spousal support. The judge awarded him $1,000 a month, and also asked Crystal Harris to pay $47,000 of her ex-husband’s legal fees from the divorce proceedings.

“It stunned me and I think it’s shocking,” said San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, who is fighting to close a loophole in the law that allows judges to exercise this kind of judicial discretion. “It’s a priority for our office.”…

Under normal circumstances, Harris would have been required to pay $3,000 a month in spousal support after the divorce, but because of the domestic violence she endured, the judge said he would lower that amount to $1,000.

“I call that the rape discount,” Harris said.

Of course, Yahoo writers, once again, refuse to call a rape a rape, instead opening the article with a vulgar line about how she was “forced to have sex with him and pay his bills.”

The man raped this woman multiple times over the years, and even with recorded evidence and a guilty verdict, because he was her husband, she is required to pay for her rapist.  How sick is this, America?

    Yup, the woman gets raped again by the law after being raped by a man —- especially if he is her husband/etc. I’m a woman — any wonder why i refuse to marry or be with a man in any way —- especially after my own experiences with raping and abusing men. Yup. But what happens when the woman takes justice into her own hands and does something like SuperGlue-ing her husband’s _____ or performing surgery or the like?; she gets thrown into prison. Here in Orlando Florida, a young mother has been missing for two weeks and the violently abusive father who is the only suspect has been given custody of her children instead of her family … judge says there isn’t enough evidence to show that the children are in danger ……. ———- Have you heard the saying “rule of thumb”? … it came from a law that allowed a husband to beat his wife as long as whatever he beat her with was no thicker than the thickness of his thumb (ever seen the thickness of a man’s thumb in comparison to a woman’s). The hate of women by men —- the only hate that is in all cultures almost without exception ………. tell me why i want nothing to do with men, at least on a personal level.
