  •  The statute is definitely a problem. (0+ / 0-)

    The applicability of the statute to this case is a gender issue.

    •  The gender is not the issue (0+ / 0-)

      The problem is that the Statute was used inappropriately.  The victim could have been male or female.   You are assuming that the male dominated the female, but it could have easily been a homosexual encounter gone wrong.  

      •  oh good grief (0+ / 0-)

        I am assuming no such thing; I am talking about the well-documented phenomenon of people in this culture, both men and women, assuming that women owe men sex under certain circumstances and absolving men of anything they do when they are cruelly denied the sex they are owed.
