The new UK legislation on the prevention of partner violence will be supplemented with an article that will deprive the abuser of the opportunity to defend himself with the consent of the victim to violent sexual practices. Writes about this "BBC" with reference to the words of the Minister of Justice Alex Chok.
The adoption of this decision was preceded by the campaign "We cannot agree with this." She first declared herself in 1972, when activists spoke about 60 women killed during sex.
Social activists noted that the sexual behavior of modern city dwellers is becoming more aggressive. Pornographic culture normalizes violent practices.
Until now, the concept of consent has allowed people to defend themselves in courts when there have been cases of murder or mutilation during sexual activity. The argument that the victim was willing to take part in sadomasochistic activities sometimes allowed the defendants to go under the manslaughter article.
Supporters of the amendments to the law argue that in 45% of cases of proceedings in such cases, the defendants received "reduced" sentences.
