BBC describes a woman reporting rape as making a “confession”
On BBC iplayer the caption for an Eastenders episode when Linda tells the police she has been raped, and gives a video statement as "Linda makes a brave confession". Confessing to the crime of being raped? I made a complaint but what has that ever changed? Anyone else got to the point they feel like it could be time for a licence fee boycott?

Does this mean every time a male/males report they have been burgled/robbed/physically assaulted by another male – the male victims are ‘confessing to the crime of having been burgled/robbed/physically assaulted?’
Women hating BBC writers enacting male supremacist reversals wherein the female victim becomes the perpetrator.
Agree about this and for many other reasons.
They’ve changed the iplayer caption to “Brave Linda reports her rape to the police”, which still sounds sort of odd – “her rape”? It’s a verb. It wasn’t her action. She reported having been raped.
No reply yet to the complaint.
