Implications of the Ched Evan`s retrial for sexual offences in the future

So what implications now for rape victims following the Ched Evans retrial and aquital? I have sat with the victims of Rape and Sexual assaukt for about 25 years now and I have real concerns that the invistigation into the complainants sexual life will deter and make sure that make cases are not brought and many victims will be ignotred.The simple truth is that any one who has been through this is now vulnerable to this type investigation. It is irrelevant how many partners a person has had or indeed what she chose to do. Consent and choice are the key terms here. No must always mean no. A woman with a poly amorous sexual life still chooses who her partners will be. It means that she has the final choice and not that she is available to any man who wants her. This is a crucial and important distinction that must be recognised.The responsibility of how men treat women is a subject of massive importance. It is the responsibility of fathers , of grandfathers and all me to get this idea and principle across to other men and to their male children/ No man's promiscuity or sexual manipulation of women would be reviewed in a rape trial. it is alleged that Ched Evans paid for the room and the Guardian on Saturday claimed that another member of the group around Ched Evans planned to film the young women while having sex. Many men who had the role that Ched Evans had in football have a massive responsibility to promote respect for women. The act of paying for a room implies ownership and sexual access. It goes further and makes women into sexual commodities.Our sexual morality must be something we learn carefully and gradually, we cannot judge anothers sexual morality as long as that morality exploits no one and uses no one. Men who would find a women as sexual partner while drunk or under the effects of drugs are not men but rather pathetic individuals. The erotic impulse and love making is a wonderful thing and should celebrated. It is a I Thou relationship rather than the exploitive I it relationships of Ched Evans and his mates. …......The Jimmy Saville case shows how vulnerable yoig women are to sexual expoitation, and the denial of its reality. While Ched Evans is nothing like Saville the attitude to women as objects is not a discrete difference it is a continous one amd men still have much to learn and have a great deal of responsibility to get these ideas across to other men and particularly for women.
