Yes, let’s blame all “men” after a group of “foreign” marauders attack up to three dozen women at recent musical events.
We’re just sure these “foreign” men will behave now.
Sweden is set to hold its first ‘man-only’ music festival next year after three events this summer were marred with dozens of allegations of rape and sexual assault.
Comedian Emma Knyckare proposed the idea of an event for ‘non-men’ on Twitter on Sunday, and after it gained support she pledged to hold the festival in 2018.
Writing on Instagram, she said: ‘Sweden’s first man-free rock festival will see the light next summer.
‘In the coming days I’ll bring together a solid group of talented organizers and project leaders to form the festival organizers, then you’ll hear from everyone again when it’s time to move forward.’
The festival will run ‘until ALL men have learned how to behave themselves’, according to her initial tweet.
She is now recruiting staff via her social media accounts.
Knyckare’s comments came after women at Bråvalla Festival, Peace & Love Festival, and Party in the Park festival reported being attacked by gangs of ‘foreign youths.’
Hmm, wonder where these “foreigners” could have possibly come from? Nobody seems to be providing any clues.
Party in the Park was the first to be hit with the allegations after 35 girls between the ages of 12 and 17 reported being sexually assaulted.
Alexandra Larsson, 17, waived her right to anonymity to speak about her terrifying ordeal, saying her backside and genitals were groped during a packed performance towards the end of Friday night.
While she did not see the culprit, Miss Larsson said she was surrounded by a group of men ‘who were not from a Swedish background’ at the time.
Elsewhere, an 18-year-old had to be taken to hospital after allegedly being raped during the Peace and Love Festival.
Dozens of reports of sexual assault were also received, with Swedish media saying the attackers were described as ‘foreign men’.
Must be the recent influx of Lutherans to Sweden. Otherwise, we’re baffled.
