Italian rape law

CNN reports:
ROME, Italy (Reuters) -- Sexually abusing a teenager is less serious a crime if the girl is not a virgin, Italy's higher court said on Friday in a controversial ruling that immediately drew a barrage of criticism. ...

The supreme court is no stranger to controversial judgments.

In recent years it has ruled that "an isolated and impulsive" pat on a woman's buttocks at work did not constitute sexual harassment, and returned a verdict that a woman could not have been raped because she was wearing skin-tight jeans.
Feminist dogma says that all rape is the same, but I don't agree. I say that raping a virgin is a worse crime than raping a slut, and stranger rape is worse than date rape, and almost any rape is worse than marital rape.
