There is no end to the Greaseballery in Italian courts. I’m Italian, I can say that. In many ways, I know some of these guys. When I was a child, I remember the family holding extended family picnics in secret just to keep some of the Old Country guys away. If there wasn’t a drunken male pride fight, or an insult a minute to women, or some loudmouth scaring the crap out of his wife and kids, there was the need to protect some shirt-tail relative’s 16 year-old from their drunken gropes. Many of their sons didn’t grow up much better either, to be honest, but nevermind. Suffice it to say I saw enough to make it so Italian men weren’t my idea of the ideal date.
I’m sure it’s changed now, so I hear, but apparently this is not so in Italy’s courts, because it just doesn’t get more convoluted than this:
If you want to be charged with a criminal offense in Italy, just tell a guy he has no balls. This is a criminal offense now.
It seems that two cousins had a fight and one of them told the other one he had no balls, so, since they had nothing else to do with their lives, the argument went to Italy’s highest court, where it was ruled illegal to tell a man he has no balls because……..because.
……because it hurts male pride. No kidding. You can’t make this stupid shit up.
‘It refers not only to the target’s lack of virility, but also to his weakness of character, lack of determination, competence and coherence — virtues that, rightly or wrongly, are still identified as pertaining to the male gender.’
The court also found that because the insult was uttered at the workplace with third parties present it could be seen as damaging Vittorio’s reputation.
Can you even believe this insecure macho bullshit? I’m rolling my eyes here.
That’s not all.
On the other hand, should a bunch of perverts decide to prove they do have balls by raping a woman or a minor in Italy, also known as “Gang Rape,” the courts have now ruled that the pieces of shit who did this do not have to spend any time in jail awaiting trial. That way they can further prove they do have balls and rape a few more women and children during their trial wait. There’s the added bonus of plenty of time to terrorize their victim into changing her testimony. It’s a Win-Win!
This ruling came down with respect to two 19 year-old swine who gang raped a 16 year-old. Let me repeat that: Two 19 year-old pieces of shit raped a 16 year old — and they do not have to strain their balls in a jail cell while awaiting trial. Boy I’ll just bet their victim feels really safe now.
The Italian supreme court has caused outrage after ruling that those remanded for trial for gang rape do not have to be kept in jail.
Late on Thursday the court upheld a constitutional court decision to annul the jail sentence of two 19-year-old men found guilty of gang raping a 16-year-old near Rome. A lower court had ruled that jail was the only custody option, but the supreme court disagreed, saying judges could apply alternatives.
I ask you. Would you want your 16 year-old daughter alone in a room with a judge who made a ruling like this? Seriously, may guys like this all shoot blanks (see story above) so that they might not continually reproduce themselves.
Well, at least there is a substantial group of people in Italy who prefer living in the 21st Century, even if it took them till the 90s to recognize rape as a criminal offense. Yes, folks, that’s right, the 1990s. Before that, it was just a Bad Boy thang:
In Italy, sexual assault was changed from a moral offence to a criminal felony in the 1990s. The former interior minister Roberto Maroni, who helped push through the 2009 decree, urged the government to make the law enforceable by the courts. “This sentence is not just a bad sentence. It is worse – it is dangerous,” Maroni told the Corriere della Sera newspaper. “If we don't propose another law we are going to end up with Cain winning over Abel.”
So you see, Italian men aren’t all bad…..just the ones who are sitting on the highest courts. They worry about if men feel bad about being accused of having no balls, but a raped 16 year-old? Not so much.
No offense, but no wonder a guy like Berlusconi got to be President. Everybody knew HE had balls. He used them enough on young girls and didn’t see a thing wrong with it.
