At a legal literacy seminar for women held in Sabah, a Politikus was heard saying :: “If you cannot fight rape, better lie down and enjoy it”. And he attributed this remark to Confucius. At a grave site, in Qufu, somewhere in China, Confucius was heard saying :: "Please don't misquote me." "For my quotations please click here, here and here."
For Politikus concerned, Confucius has this to say :: "A man who does not plan long ahead what he wants to say and does not say clearly what he wants to, will find trouble right at his door." [And please don't blame poor reporters for misquoting, misconstruing and misinterpreting.]
The report in the Star, apart from having said the above, also quoted Sabah Muslim Women Lawyers Association president Fatimah Wattie Abu Bakar as saying that the politikus concerned had also suggested rape victims should be psychologically assessed as to whether they enjoyed the incident. [4th world thinking.] Malaysiakini reports today that the politikus concerned has apologised and made the usual claim that his remark was misconstrued and misinterpreted. At the seminar, several women staged a walkout after he had made the remark. It is also reported that certain quarters also called for his resignation as they felt his conduct was unbecoming of a leader.
Meanwhile, somewhere in China, Confucius has this to say :: "I am awaiting for his humble apology for attributing that remark to me."
