Well if what you say is true that men are liable for rape even if they're intoxicated then I say they deserve it. Men throughout history were abusive to their wives and children. Men have ruled with impunity and people are tired of it. Even men are tired of it. It's payback. Take it like a man.
They're stronger. More aggressive. Superiority complex stemming from persistent patriarchal rule. It's not just payback. The rules need to discriminate men to be fair to others. For example, a woman slaps a man and he's only briefly stunned. A man slaps a woman and she's knocked to the floor. Society has to make rules to counter this.
