    Depends on the situation.
    Yes, the guy is a rapist.
    Yes, the girl is a rapist.

    Men are taught that rape is bad.  But what are they taught is the definition of rape?  That is the real question of importance.

      agree.  But women must be taught the same.

      Only when understandings and expectations are equal and co-ordinate can you say for sure that rape did not occur.

      I recall an event a month or two back.  Moderate size party (25-30 people).  Drunk girl hitting on a guy all night (designated driver) who is clearly not interested right now. Goes on all night.

      Finally he "gives up" and they leave together.  My girlfriend goes "wow, who is raping who right now?"  My reply "No-one.  They are married".

      Before we can tech the definition of rape we need to work out what that definition is.

      I've had--TMI alert--some wonderful experiences when both I and the other party were tipsy. I wouldn't, on the other hand, want someone taking advantage of me when I was too sloshed to think. And one can't always tell by looking.
