Reaction storm in Ireland

The acquittal of a 27-year-old man accused of raping a 17-year-old girl in Ireland has sparked a storm of reactions. But what infuriated even more was the defensive line of the 27-year-old and his lawyer.

According to reports in the Irish press, the young man's lawyer asked the jurors to take into account that the teenage girl was provocatively dressed, claiming that she was wearing a lace thong as underwear.

The court eventually acquitted him of the charges of "lack of witnesses".

Citizens and organizations are protesting in the country against the ruling and what was heard in court, which according to the representative of the Center for the Judgment of Rape in Dublin belong to the category of "stereotypes about rape".

Twitter, however, was not unaffected as a women's movement was created with the hashtag: #ThisIsNotConsent taking photos of their underwear.

"A piece of cloth is not an invitation to rape, no matter how small. "Even if the young woman was not wearing underwear: It means nothing!", Writes a female user on Twitter.
