In response to his activity on the social media website, Sexual Assault Support Service chief Liz Little, along with Tasmania’s Anti-Discrimination Commissioner, has decided to file a representative class action suit against the man, Facebook and the state’s Parole Board. Little argued that the act prohibited people from doing things that may be hurtful or shameful for a victim of sexual abuse, adding that it could also amount to victimisation under the anti-discrimination act. She said his comments were “demeaning and vilified the girl.” Little said that the action was being lodged on behalf of young victims of sexual abuse.
