“I am not minimizing the facts (…), I try to make sense of things: a slap is never acceptable but a slap is not equal to a man who beats his wife every day and a slap is not “is not equal to a person who is accused of rape after having drugged the people who accuse him”, declared on Cnews this very close to Jean-Luc Mélenchon, questioned on the Adrien Quatennens affair. “We have to manage on these subjects to have nuance, to have principles that we must respect, and we must take into account the words of those who speak on this type of subject”, he said. he continued.
“Abject remarks that trivialize violence. Words that damage the fight against violence against women. Words that completely discredit you on this subject, ”reacted on Twitter a few hours later the Minister Delegate for Gender Equality, Isabelle Rome. “Shut up now! That’s enough!!”, added Marlène Schiappa, who also held this portfolio before that of Secretary of State for the Social and Solidarity Economy in a tweet, judging that these remarks “do considerable harm to the fight for the protection of women in the face of violence. “How dare you? “, pestered the leader of the renaissance group in the Assembly, Aurore Bergé.
Shut up now! That’s enough !!
It is up to the courts to judge this case.
Your words do considerable harm to the fight for the protection of women against violence.
We’re really going to come back to debating whether hitting a woman is acceptable?!

“Stop hurting us”
” BUT IT’S NOT POSSIBLE ! “, was also indignant the feminist activist and EELV adviser from Paris, Raphaëlle Remy-Leleu, on the social network. “What you’ve been talking about with the rebellious comrades for a week is unbearable. Stop talking about the violence. At least stop hurting us. Find the courage to talk about it with a feminist and cash in on both your lack of knowledge of the subject, your political complacency, and the pain and anger you generate,” she insisted.
On LCI, the EELV deputy Sandrine Rousseau also recalled that “a slap in the face to one’s spouse is a crime”. “That’s what we have to move because all these words, these are words that minimize the acts,” she said.
I shouldn’t even come to this thought as there’s so much anger above, but @mbompard what you say about the slap is also filthy political stupidity. Claiming to be left and “forgetting” the system of domination. Go on. Shut up and think.
