Well, here’s something. A new law up for consideration in the UK would deem a drunk woman incapable of giving consent for sex. You see where this is going? You grasp the cunning plot?
Predictably, there is mucho pained outcry from British subjects who are loath to see an important source of pussy evaporate. Witness the comments on the Daily Mail story, where men voice their concern by way of the venerable false accusation scenario:
“What if the woman, the next morning and thinking better of it, decides that she has made a silly mistake, and to salve her conscience reports the sex act. As a fib, she adds that she was drunk. Who’s word would be believed? We have seen enough cases of lying evil women shouting rape in the last 12 months, I think that this new law will make it far too easy for a malicious self-serving woman to destroy some innocent mans life; possibly even open up a new avenue for blackmail.”
Not to mention the irrational fear that such a law is sure to result in “a lot of rape cases being brought to court” which preposterous contingency “can only lead to injustice.” Imagine, clogging up the courts with a lot of stupid rape cases.
Self-policing women, who know after a lifetime as sex objects that male arousal is always a woman’s responsibility, admonish “Women must start showing more respect for themselves by not becoming so drunk and disgusting that they are putting themselves at serious risk.” And my personal favorite, Mrs C of Surrey: “When, oh WHEN will women be MADE to start taking responsibility for their own actions?” Because right now they’re just runnin’ wild o’er the countryside, rapin’ n’ pillagin’ n’ slappin’ the missus around.
As is always the case in these internet “discussions”, a lone woman tries to make the case for the notion that maybe men ought not to go around raping people, and is summarily shouted down.
“Jeez what ever happened to equality” muses Frank of Hertfordshire, sadly letting go of a date-rape dream.
