  •  I have a question about your scenario (2+ / 0-)

    A man and a woman are drinking alcohol. Both have lowered inhibitions.

    The man and the woman begin kissing, one thing leads to another and they ended up having sex.

    Neither the man, nor the woman, actually asked "Do you want to have sex?"

    Did they both rape each other? How is that substantively different from your scenario?

    Please proceed, Governor.

    •  I've had ONE "gotcha" already, today ... so (0+ / 0-)

      you tell me.

      In your set-up: The next morning one of them has Sexual Buyer's Remorse and files a criminal complaint.

      What do you think happens in the real world?

      What do you think ought to happen ?

      •  It's not a "gotcha" (2+ / 0-)

        It's YOUR scenario.

        If one of them has sexual buyer's remorse the next day, too bad. Rape is defined by the act itself, not whether not one of the participants later decides he or she regrets it.

        In the real world, if a rape accusation is made the accused will be investigated, as should all allegations of rape.

        Please proceed, Governor.
