New York Judge Dismisses Kesha’s Case With Appalling Comment About Rape
Kesha has officially lost her case against Sony, TMZ reports. After having already been denied an emergency order to get out of her contract, a New York judge has officially rejected her claim that the company made her a “slave” with Dr. Luke as her “master.” The judge stated that this was not true, as the company did not require her to work with him exclusively.
Kesha’s claim that being raped and abused by Dr. Luke made her the victim of a hate crime was also rejected, with the judge stating “Although [Luke’s] alleged actions were directed to Kesha, who is female, [her claims] do no allege that [Luke] harbored animus toward women or was motivated by gender animus when he allegedly behaved violently toward Kesha.”
The judge then topped that bullshit off by saying “Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime.”
Oh really? Then what is it? Is it an end table? A percolator? A slip-and-fall accident? I think it’s pretty fair to say that someone who does not hate women would not rape any woman. If you abuse women, if you rape women, I think it is pretty safe to say that you hate women. What? Does this judge think that there are rapists and abusers out there who like or feel neutrally about women, but just happen to really enjoy assaulting them?
