[Thanks to] violent pornography, lap dancing bars and a culture that treats sex as a commodity and perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that rape, far from being the crime of the deranged, is going mainstream.
But there is a slight intimation that she knows what's really going on.
What is particularly concerning is that a tolerance of rape as recreation is entrenched in the attitudes of certain, marginalised groups of men - and some who are not so marginalised.
Oooh, "marginalised". Is that a hint that she knows the rapists aren't actually, you know, Scottish? That they are immigrants from less-developed countries who are disproportionately Muslim and disproportionately asylum-seekers? Of course as a candidate for the Muslim-infiltrated SNP, she's not going to say that outright. Perhaps "marginalised" is as close as we're going to get to an admission of the truth.
Meanwhile, two teenagers, aged 14 and 16, appeared in court yesterday charged with one of the recent rapes. The name of the 14-year-old has not been disclosed but the 16-year old is called Emanuel Risti. What kind of name is Emanuel Risti? Roma? Albanian? I don't know, and no further details of their background have yet been disclosed, but I think we can safely conclude that his ancestors were not fighting at Bannockburn alongside Robert the Bruce.
