What is worse than rape that could be used as intimidation??
I’ll kill you if you say no”?
That would still be rape lol..
By anyone’s definition...
Consent is only an issue in questionable circumstances...
I see no way to intimidate someone where rape is still questionable
Here's what I reject about many consent laws. Inability to give consent while intoxicated isn't based on physical strength, it's ostensibly based on mental ability to give consent due to impairment. If that's true, a woman should be guilty of rape too in these situations because men can be severely intoxicated. However, these laws are not often implemented equally, and usually it's some woman claiming the intoxication rape argument, and courts or college campuses agreeing. It's quite the double standard.

If getting drunk and screwing is rape...I've been raped many times.
Yeah...you may regret it in the morning, but nobody twisted my arm and it is what it is.
