I wouldn't assume sexual assault as a first port of call for anyone!
Perhaps JKR would tell us more in the Encyclopaedia when (if) it ever
appears, but I doubt it. There are some things we don't really need to
I agree, although I must admit, I did wonder about that with Ariana - it
would explain the magnitude of the response.
But it didn't occur to me with Umbridge - I don't think so in her case.
Drowning was considered a good means of determining if a woman was a
witch or not which is why I thought they may have tried that... or
maybe even trying to burn her!!
Thing with rape is you'd expect to have to restrain the subject of the
attack and if you are using as a means of forcing them to *do*
something... in this case demonstrate how they could do magic... then
restraining them would be a pretty silly way of doing it!!
They could have been stoning her... who knows.
News and views... for people like youse!!
Not as strange as it looks!
