The Ronaldo article is absolutely fucking brutal, read it on the train home yesterday and wasn’t at all prepared for it. The two bits that really stood out for me (which I’ve blurred, content warning for rape, sexual assault etc)
I’m of the mindset that I’ll always try and believe women in such circumstances, but what shocked me about this is that it’s not even a X’s word against Y’s situation, but stuff that Ronaldo/his team have fully admitted to in official documents, showing a ludicrously out of touch understanding of consent that would be borderline comical if it wasn’t about such a horrible issue. It’s the sort of understanding of consent I’d expect a 13 year old to have.
100% fuck him, basically. Will be very disappointing if this is allowed to dip under the radar.
