How vaginas work, according to Superior Court Judge Derek Johnson.

This makes me so. angry. I’d like to know just what these magical defenses against rape that women are supposed to have are. I’d like to know what these asshats making idiot proclamations like this think actually happens during a rape. Do they think our vaginas are barbed? Equipped with bear traps? Do they shoot missiles, and no one told me?

Superior Court Judge Derek Johnson should be removed from the bench, period. No one this ignorant should be in charge of anything to do with the justice system.

LA Times: Judge who said rape victim should have ‘put up a fight’ is rebuked.

“I’m not a gynecologist, but I can tell you something,” the judge said, according to documents released Thursday. “If someone doesn’t want to have sexual intercourse, the body shuts down. The body will not permit that to happen unless a lot of damage in inflicted, and we heard nothing about that in this case.

“That tells me that the victim in this case, although she wasn’t necessarily willing, she didn’t put up a fight.”

The judge, who has been on the Orange County Superior Court since 2000, also declared the rape “technical,” and not “a real, live criminal case.”
