Swedish police dismiss case of the revenge fart
Officers find no whiff of intent after woman claims rejected suitor left malodorous memento in her apartment
Swedish police have dismissed a case in which a woman alleged that a rejected and vindictive suitor intentionally broke wind as he stormed out of her apartment.
The woman, a resident of the Laholm municipality in southern Sweden, told the online edition of daily Hallandsposten that she had invited the man into her home to have sex.
Once inside she had a change of heart and turned him down. But before leaving, she alleged the disgruntled man left her a malodorous memento.
“It smelled awful,” she wrote in her police complaint, asking for a harassment charge to be pressed against the man, which would carry a fine or prison sentence of up to one year.
However, Swedish police decided to drop the case. “It’s impossible to prove that he wanted to pass particularly smelly wind on purpose,” said a spokesman for the local police, Kenneth Persson.
When will society begin to take fart rape seriously?
“By farting louder the man is using passive aggressive violence to position himself as dominant, this intimidates the woman to subconsciously not release as much flatulence and thus the woman fearing for her safety doesn’t fart as loud as a sign of submissiveness, this in turn contributes to rape culture and women being oppressed.”
The struggle is real!
