Well, if it's a legitimate rape, the State legal code has a way of knowing that, and shutting itsself down to the victim, you know.

RobSeace: JackieRabbit: There is forceable and non-forceable rape and they must have statues to cover both.

I'm curious what rape statues would look like, but I'm afraid to Google it...

His sexual life, for example, was entirely regulated by the two Newspeak words sexcrime (sexual immorality) and goodsex (chastity). Sexcrime covered all sexual misdeeds whatever. It covered fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and other perversions, and, in addition, normal intercourse practised for its own sake. There was no need to enumerate them separately, since they were all equally culpable, and, in principle, all punishable by death. In the C vocabulary, which consisted of scientific and technical words, it might be necessary to give specialized names to certain sexual aberrations, but the ordinary citizen had no need of them. He knew what was meant by goodsex - that is to say, normal intercourse between man and wife, for the sole purpose of begetting children, and without physical pleasure on the part of the woman: all else was sexcrime. In Newspeak it was seldom possible to follow a heretical thought further than the perception that it was heretical: beyond that point the necessary words were nonexistent.

Bhruic: Ugh. Why do some people seem to want to insist on using words to defy reality? There's a reason we have terms like "forcible rape", and it's to differentiate them from the other types. Of which, yes, there are some. Statutory rape, for example. There could be no force involved there, both parties could be consenting, one party just lacks (under the law) the ability to give consent. Or, as another example, date rape, where one party might be intoxicated or drugged. Again, no force required because the other party isn't in a position to resist.

"Rape is rape" is fine if you are talking about it casually, but from a legal perspective, well, sorry, that's not really accurate.


Stop that.

There is no place for your understanding and rationality here.
