Indonesian Judge Suggests Women Might Like Rape

During hearings to consider him for nation's Supreme Court


A boneheaded Indonesia judge sparked fury when he suggested women might "enjoy" being raped as much as their attackers.

The crass comments came as Daming Sunusi, running for the Indonesian Supreme Court, was being questioned by a parliamentary panel Monday.

Sunusi was asked if the country should consider the death penalty in rape cases.
