Irish senator wants laws to stop fraping (Facebook rape)

FRAPE

EVER been fraped? Galway Senator Fidelma Healy Eames has been highlighting the perils of fraping to the Oireachtas communications committee. She says:

“Take for example the form of fraping – where you’re raped on Facebook, where a youngster has their status open and another person puts a message on there as if they wrote it.”

FRAPE! (Not to be confused with Frappé, which is a big deal on the Continent.)

“That message could be for example sexual, and that goes out into the world as if they said it – this type of thing has to stop.”

If being fraped results in a new embryonic Facebook page will the Irish elite let you abort it?
