Apparently juries have a problem convicting men of rape when their alleged victims are wearing skinny jeans. The pants are so narrow and hard to get on or off that reasonable minds believe “collaboration” is necessary for their removal.
An Australian man was acquitted of rape Friday when a jury ruled there had to be “collaboration” to remove the woman’s tight size 6 skinny jeans.
Nicholas Gonzales, 23, admitted to having sex with the 24-year-old accuser, but insisted it was consensual.
The woman said Gonzales pushed her on his bed and held her down against her will, the Daily Mail reported.
“I struggled to try to get up for a while and then he undid my jeans and he pulled them off,” she testified.
Gonzales’ lawyer pressed her, saying it would be “difficult for skinny jeans to be taken off by someone else unless the wearer’s assisting, collaborating, consenting.”
The “skinny jeans defense” has become more common in rape trials all over the world. (Source.)
