There are a lot of things wrong with this article in the English-language Shanghai Daily, beginning with the headline: “College junior raped by HIV-infected gays“, which sounds like the kind of headline intended to whip-up a lynch mob.
The article also goes in for some pretty heavy victim-blaming, emphasising several times that the young man who was raped had been drinking. Most appalling however isn’t the reporting itself but the final sentence:
A Jiangxi judge said no laws have been made to punish a man who rapes another man, but the virus carrier might be fined.
What. The. Fuck?
