  •  Eh, I disagree. (4+ / 0-)

    Mugging somebody is theft.
    Diverting bank funds is theft.
    Shoplifting food is theft.

    All very different crimes, but as value has been taken without consent, it's all theft.

    Sex without consent is rape.

    Any sex without consent.

    But that's how I see it. Rape is an inclusive term, much like theft.

    •  How about someone giving you a gift card? (0+ / 0-)

      Is that theft?  

      That would seem to be a more appropriate analogy.  

      Maybe the question I should ask is, should a 15-year old be allowed to go to the store and buy a carton of milk, or a candy bar?  Or should those be considered invaled transactions since he is not old enough to make a legally binding contract?
