Bendigo Councillor Elise Chapman’s Bigotry

@Elise_Chapman #auspol #ausnews

Councillor Elise Chapman claims that her opposition to a mosque in Bendigo isn’t on bigoted grounds, yet her comments on Twitter on 18th and 19th of June 2014 suggest that much of that opposition comes from a belief that Muslims are generally rapists and that the building of a mosque is a ‘concern’ because it may increase the likelihood of rape. Chapman’s comments also seem to suggest that Australians don’t rape women.

This is despite Australian statistics on rape stating that 87.7% of women who are raped know the perpetrator. Note: Muslims make up less than 3% of Australia’s population.

Rape is wrong. Suggesting that an entire culture of people are rapists is wrong. Suggesting that a person’s ethnicity dictates whether they will or will not rape is wrong.

Here’s some more about rape:
