The ‘feminist’ author has been increasingly at odds with the women’s movement over the past few years due to strong opposition of trans rights, but now she has gone even further. At the Hay Festival she said that to her mind rape did not exist that way as it is represented in society. To her mind rape does not cause any injury, she does not believe it to be physically or mentally traumatic, thinking that it is just bad sex. “Most rape is just lazy, just careless, just insensitive. Every time a man rolls over on his exhausted wife and insists on enjoying his conjugal right, he is raping her. It will never end up in a court of law,” she says, adding that there still are violent rapes but they are in minority. “At this point you think, what the hell are you saying? That something that leaves no sign, no injury, nothing, is more damaging to women than seeing your best friend blown up by an IED is to a veteran? We haven’t been destroyed, we’ve been bloody annoyed, is what we’ve been. I reckon 200 hours of community service will do — would do me. I suggested a long time ago that maybe a little tattoo would be a good thing. Maybe an ‘R’ on your hand. I’d prefer it on your cheek,” she said and admitted that her head might be torn off for such an attitude.
