This man is a rape denier who commits war on women!

This man is a rape denier who commits war on women!

Atticus Finch, controversial rape-denying lawyer in the town of Maycomb Alabama, has come under increasing fire from the National Organization of Woman for his defense of Tom Robinson and his denial that Mayella Ewell was ever raped.

“Rape is an epidemic in America” said NOW’s president, Terry O’Neill.

Every day on our college campuses, in the workplace, in nightclubs, in the homes of NFL stars, women are raped.  Brutally, savagely raped by men perpetuating the patriarchy. Atticus Finch defended a rapist.  Not only did he defend this rapist but he denied that the rape had actually happened. Denied it! He spat on the moral authority of young Mayella Ewell and raped her again with his defense. I call upon all women across our land to stand up to rape deniers like Atticus Finch and show him that there will be economic consequences for his actions.

Since the controversy first erupted over Finch’s defense tactics the local NOW chapter has picketed his office in Maycomb every day.  With chants of “Hey ho rape deniers have got to go” Finch has seen a precipitous drop in clients.

The controversial rape denier Finch for his part claims he was just doing his job.

Every man is entitled to a defense. Even the guilty. And Tom Robinson was not guilty. To begin with, this case should never have come to trial. The state did not produce one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place. Now, there is circumstantial evidence to indicate that Mayella Ewell was beaten – savagely.  Something traumatic obviously happened to her. I have nothing but pity in my heart for the chief witness for the State. She is the victim of cruel poverty, ignorance and the Republican war on woman.  But my sympathy does not extend to imagining a crime and putting away an innocent man. I stand behind my defense of Tom Robinson and ask the National Organization of Women to respect the privacy of my family and I.

The rape victim, Mayella Ewell, a smart, attractive young women who wants to attend college and study feminist literature is demanding an apology from Mr. Finch.

I got somethin’ to say. And then I ain’t gonna say no more. He took advantage of me. An’ if you fine, fancy gentlemen ain’t gonna do nothin’ about it, then you’re just a bunch of lousy, yella, stinkin’ cowards, the – the whole bunch of ya, and your fancy airs don’t come to nothin’.  This is about class.  Finch and the patriarchy look down upon me.  Well I was raped!  Sure I don’t have evidence of it but I was raped nonetheless!  By Tom Robinson and his fraternity pals!

With the small town of Maycomb now the focus of national news many have asked Finch to leave town.

“We only have 8,000 residents” said the mayor.

But now the press has doubled the population. I keep having microphones shoved in my face asking me how many men in town are rapists. I’m not a rapist.  The majority of men in the town aren’t rapists. Does rape happen?  Yes, unfortunately. And until we change the laws that favor the patriarchy it will continue to happen. But I am not a rape denier. So please, Atticus.  Do us all a favor and leave town. Go far away. Let peace be restored.

Finch remains defiant and vows not to leave the only town he has ever called home.

This is my home. I am a defense lawyer. I defended a client. And the National Organization of Woman will not run me out of town.

NOW for its part promises more protests and disruptions until Finch is disbarred.

“There is no defense for rape” said O’Neill. “Real or imaginary.”

    We all know rape is impossible since a woman with her skirt up can run faster than a man with his pants down.
