In 2016, the two Peruvian men were convicted of raping a woman in the Italian city of Ancona in 2015.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was 20 years old at the time of the alleged attack and is also of Peruvian origin.
The ruling was subsequently thrown out by the Ancona appeals court, with the judges -- three women -- claiming that the woman's report was not credible, despite doctors confirming that her injuries were consistent with rape.
Molinaro said the judges overturned the initial ruling with a 22-page reasoning, claiming that the woman's account of the incident was not reliable as the men "didn't find her attractive, she was too masculine."
My understanding is that appeals court ruling has, itself, been tossed and a new trial has been ordered. The above ruling was handed down in 2017, but has only now become public.
Anyone can say they're not attracted to someone, and therefore they didn't rape them. Rape, while it has a sexual aspect to it, is often more about power and control than attraction as most would understand it Men CAN be raped, so why would a woman who is too masculine somehow be immune.
