Dawkins Brews Twitter Storm over 'Mild Rape' Remarks Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jul 29, 2014, 10:21 PM

Cambridge University Professor Richard Dawkins, an atheist evangelical, stirred a teapot of Twitter controversy by talking about 'mild rape.'

According to the Daily Telegraph of London, "Professor Richard Dawkins has drawn an angry response from women’s campaigners after he referred to “mild date rape” and stated that date rape is not as bad as being raped by a stranger."

Dawkins is quoted as saying that, “Date rape is bad. Stranger rape at knifepoint is worse. If you think that’s an endorsement of date rape, go away and learn how to think."

As reported by the Telegraph, "The academic and author also differentiated between “mild pedophilia” [sic] and “violent pedophilia” in a Twitter row about language and logic."

Numerous women's rights groups have condemned Dawkins' 'mild rape' remarks.
