    They also noted that many men who thought themselves innocent of rape (e.g. 'I saw her and immediately knew I had to get her totally drunk and then have sex with her, because I absolutely knew that she wouldn't have sex with me sober, so I gave her extra-strong drinks and kept refilling them for her. What? No, I'm not a rapist.') and considered themselves falsely accused were, well, rapists.
    That isn't rape. If you say "yes", that's consent no matter how drunk you are. (Being unconscious or incapable of speech obviously doesn't count).

    You are legally responsible for decisions you make when drunk. To think otherwise is to infantile people and assume they are incapable of controlling their own behavior.

    Don't conflate "drinking too much" with the horrible events of this diary. They are not remotely the same thing.
