41, it's different if it's your long time girlfriend, fiancé, wife or domestic partner. It sounds more like OP is having more promiscuous, randomized hook ups than that, and with him being a sober guy having sex with drunk people, he could get into some serious legal shit. People that are drunk can not legally consent, that is how the legal system views it.
#115 you are partly right but it's not the real reason. It's because of the intermediate-scrutiny standard, for the US anyway. Which says laws based on gender must substantialy be related to the achievment of a important governmental objective. there is a governmental interest in preventing teen pregnancies involved in those circumstances, so the law is upheld.I know it sounds crazy, but I'm looking in my college political text book and it uses those laws as examples.
Jumber, I have no words for how stupid that comment was, especially coming from a male. Rape is under-reported in women, because they're too ashamed to come forward for fear of judgement, right? Try being a male who gets raped by a woman, and tell me you would have no issue reporting it. How many men would be willing to acknowledge that a woman took advantage of them? Not fucking many. Most would assume that because they are male it is wrong of them to not want it in the first place, and on top of that, theres simply male bravado. On top of this, I think it is worth pointing out, NOBODY should be a victim to something that is considered a crime against other groups of people in the same population group. NOBODY should have to just suck it up and deal with a situation just because they have a penis rather than a vagina. Nothing pisses me off more than the carefree attitude we have when it comes to mens issues these days.
Its moronic to say its acceptable for men to be raped in a situation that it is illegal for women. You can argue it however you want, you aren't making any logical sense. Shall we also just ignore cases of breast cancer in men because the rates are lower? Fuck them, they aren't female, they can just go die somewhere else. We only care about applying things where the statistics are significant, right? Or hey, maybe equality should be a universal concept. I dunno, maybe that's just me.
Better than saying, "Today, I realised I've never had sex with someone who was willing at the time."
Most drunk people know exactly what they're doing, so I certainly hope they only accept a certain blood alcohol concentration that lends itself to such loss of consciousness. But how is the situation any different to any of the other stupid shit you pull when drunk? Shall we also start charging businesses who accept the money of drunks? And how exactly does this eliminate the obvious issue of people drinking to a point of making such decisions unconsciously? People who get to that state of drunkeness are the most obnoxious assholes on the planet. Maybe the fear of what could happen to them might prevent some of this stupid behaviour from occurring in the first place...
