In Ireland, a 27-year-old man was found not guilty of raping a 17-year-old girl. In the defense’s closing argument, his lawyer asked the jury to consider the teenage girl’s underwear. “You have to look at the way she was dressed,” the defense lawyer said. She added that the alleged victim was “wearing a thong with a lace front.” A female lawmaker stood in Irish parliament on Tuesday and pulled a pair of lacy thong underwear from her sleeve, showing how do a rape victim or a woman feels at her underwear being shown in a court.
