Canadian University Student Convicted of Rape, But Was the Judge Biased Against Men?

Article here. Excerpt:

'The judge repeatedly stated that various facts alleged by Ururyar "never happened." He declared that it was "incomprehensible" to paint Gray as a "seductive party animal," notwithstanding her seductive text messages (which she had deleted from her phone and never mentioned to the police). He asserted—incomprehensibly—that "we don't even know what the phrase 'hot sex' means." He mocked Ururyar's claim that he was embarrassed when Gray groped him at the bar, despite her admission that he asked her to stop touching him. He claimed to know for a fact that Ururyar's apology was for a sexual assault, not a bad breakup.

Moreover, Justice Zuker used his judgment to deliver a sermon that, in the words of National Post columnist Christie Blatchford, sounded "borrowed from a college course on feminist thinking." (As Canadian court reformer Lise LaSalle has documented on her blog, he is a veteran advocate for feminist jurisprudence.) He denounced "rape myths," spoke of "the interplay of power, gender, and sexuality," and cited several feminist texts such as Susan Brownmiller's 1975 book, Against Our Will: Men, Women and Rape.'
