  2. A 16-year-old female gang-rape victim "may well have been glad of the attention," according to one of her attacker's defence lawyer. The lawyer suggested that the victim was asking for it because of her "provocative" clothing and the fact that she was overweight at the time of the assault. Incidentally, this happened in London, not Saudi Arabia. (Via Magic Bellybutton.)
