I wish I was making this up:
Two Argentine judges face mounting calls for their impeachment after reducing a child abuser's sentence on grounds that the victim was a homosexual who had previously been abused by his father.

"We're in the hands of morons," said President Cristina Kirchner's cabinet chief Anibal Fernandez of the ruling, which triggered outrage when it was disclosed Monday.

The judges who signed it, Horacio Piombo and Benjamin Sal Llargues, should be "hauled before an impeachment hearing," Fernandez said, calling it "one of the biggest disgraces we've ever seen in this country."

The president of the Argentine Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Trans, Esteban Paulon, called the ruling "incomprehensible."

"It re-victimizes the victim. Next thing you know they'll be saying the boy enjoyed it," he said.

The judges reduced convicted child abuser Mario Tolosa's sentence from six years to three years and two months, ruling that because the six-year-old victim had previously been sexually abused by his father, he could not be a victim of aggravated sexual abuse a second time.

They added that "it is clear that the minor's choice of sexual orientation... would already have been made," as shown by his "transvestism," which they said had to be taken into account in judging the severity of Tolosa's crime.

Tolosa, the vice president of a neighborhood soccer club in Buenos Aires, was convicted of abusing the boy in the club's bathrooms in 2011.

Numerous lawmakers, judges and activists have condemned the decision to reduce his sentence, and a petition calling for the judges' impeachment is circulating on social media networks.

"It is a reprehensible ruling from both a human and a legal point of view," said the head of the government's anti-discrimination institute, Pedro Mouratian.

Under Argentine law, "simple abuse" with no penetration is punishable by three to 20 years in prison.

Harsher sentences can be imposed for aggravated abuse ("ultraje"), of which Tolosa was originally convicted.

So, the boy was previously abused and apparently wears girls clothes sometimes and that makes him a homosexual and equates to the molester as being less guilty? These judges are idiots.

Things I've said here:

I only have a filter for people who do not consistently beg to be belittled, ridiculed, insulted, and demeaned.

I may believe people, as a whole, should be treated fairly but I also believe those same people are idiots.

Someone should tell the judge his own homosexuality is not due to having dressed up like a pretty pink princess for daddy.[1]

You can't be that stupid and not have the stupidity driven by some religious insanity.

Honestly, I'm trying to imagine what a couple of truly stupid secular judges could have come up with that is even in the same league.
