Shocking opinions

First published in Letters by

MY PARTNER just finished reading me the letter of February 18 from Heather Causnett regarding the complaint re: Dave Lee Travis and Heather’s suggestions for women who are touched against their will.

I’m furious, shocked and disgusted. She seems to think that women who are sexually molested against their will should deal with it using violence. She is also disgusted with her sex.

It’s always a sign of huge stupidity when someone suggests righting one crime by committing another. If someone, anyone, touches you against your wishes you can ensure they are punished however you wish, as long as it’s legal obviously.

Why Heather thinks she has the right to tell women who have been abused how they should have the matter dealt with is beyond me. Also she’s disgusted with her sex! Trust me, Heather, the feeling is 100 per cent mutual.

Laura Cooper, Bootham, York.

Who knows what the majority view is? One can only guess but what comes over clearly is that Mrs C is not fond of the loose woman, the kind that will claim unwanted attention, sometimes decades after the event without addressing it t the time.
She has her standards and I'll bet she's never had a partner as Laura calls it.

Agree with the letter, well said.
HC's views are outdated, narrow and hideous.
She doesn't do herself any favours.

There was a letter in here once from Mr Causnett.
