Swedish Left Party politician Barbro Sörman has suggested that it's "worse" when Swedish men rape women, than when immigrants do so.
"The Swedish men who rape do it despite the growing gender equality. They make an active choice. It's worse imo [in my opinion]," Sörman tweeted.
Sörman, a self-described socialist and a feminist, made the observation in response to what she claimed was excessive media focus on the fact that most of the rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants.
She explained that Swedish men are brought up in a society that believes in gender equality and therefore should be held to higher standards than migrants, who come from cultures where women are treated as second-rate citizens.
