    You are 100% correct that rape is a crime of violence and without evidence of the violence no conviction for the crime of rape is possible ...  

    And I didn't explicitly state that because of her sheltered upbringing, inexperience and poor social skills, the Ingenue (perhaps incorrectly) assumed that ANY aggressive male was potentially dangerous and therefore threatening.  Stupid. Bad. Stupid Me.

    So ...

    YOU WIN

    YOU ARE BETTER

    YOU ARE WISER

    I AM DEFEATED

    (Have you cum yet)

    I AM INFERIOR

    YOU ARE VICTORIOUS

    ( Now?  Now?)

    Time's up, John ... zip it up and get out of here !

      Don't be so dramatic.

      In very few of my sexual encounters was the question expressly asked, "Do you want to have sex?"

      It's usually an escalation of kissing and physical touching that later leads to sex. Your notion that it's rape without a verbally spoken "yes" is absurd.

      Are you actually trying to argue that rape is not defined by the act itself, but rather, how one of the participants feels about it the next day?

      Please proceed, Governor.

        there was a diary here a while ago with lots of Recs about someone that didn't understand what she went through was rape until a few years after the fact... and after someone convinced her that it was raped..

        It's all very subjective.. next time you're anywhere near a sexual encounter get a lawyer quickly and have the terms of the deal witnessed before signing.
