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...
Lets just get this out of the way, then:
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.
