A Hampden County [Massachusetts] man who allegedly tricked his brother’s girlfriend into having sex with him by impersonating his sibling in the middle of the night cannot be convicted of rape, the state’s highest court ruled yesterday in a controversial decision that affirms the court’s long-held view that sex obtained through fraud is no crime.
That’s right. Dude pretends to be sleeping woman’s boyfriend, thus tricking her into servicing him, but because she didn’t say no, it’s not rape.
Well, what the fuck is it then? As victim’s advocate Wendy J Murphy opines in the Boston Globe article, the ruling merely reiterates that in the eyes of the law, a dude’s right to pork supersedes a woman’s right to personal bodily sovereignty.
21st century America: where fraud is a crime, and rape is a crime, unless you do’em both at the same time; then the Manly Rapist Protection Society throws a gala ball in your honor, you go on the talk show circuit, star in a porn film, and some famous celebrity deli names a wiener after you.
Once again: if a woman says it’s rape, it’s rape. End of story.
