Just found out about this today, but apparently, back on March 24, an appeals court in Oklahoma ruled that forced oral sex is not rape if the victim is unconscious from drinking.
You got drunk, it’s cool to rape you.
No problem, bro.
The decision stated that “Forcible sodomy cannot occur where a victim is so intoxicated as to be completely unconscious at the time of the sexual act of oral copulation.”
The court decided, in its wisdom, that since the statute listed several circumstances that constituted force but did not include a mention of incapacitation due to the victim drinking alcohol.
Jennifer Gentile Long, leader of a group that helps to prosecute sexual and domestic violence cases, pointed out that “Oklahoma has a separate rape statute that protects victims who were too intoxicated to consent to vaginal or anal intercourse.”
Since those laws do not include oral sex, however, it’s obviously cool to go ahead and shove your dick in an unconscious woman’s mouth.
I just. I can’t. There is no way in hell that this should be an issue.
Why do we need separate legislation for each body part? Why can a woman not be protected? Are we seriously a group of orifices, some of which do not deserve protection?
The best part of this situation? “Other defendants are nevertheless making the same argument in other parts of Oklahoma to avoid charges.”
Yup. You heard that right.
And the defendant’s lawyer appears to be okay with that. She thinks he should have only be charged with “unwanted touching” because “There was absolutely no evidence of force or him doing anything to make this girl give him oral sex, other than she was too intoxicated to consent.”
Double-think and alternative facts at their finest.
It’s not force because she couldn’t say no.
And, yeah, maybe he touched her when she didn’t want it, but, hey, that doesn’t mean it was against her will.
Because, I don’t know about you, but when I am unable to consent, I’m cool with a guy shoving his dick into my mouth and leaving traces of semen around my mouth (yeah, read the article – he didn’t even have the common decency of wiping it off her face).
So, to recap – Oklahoma is totally cool with guys mouth-fucking women who are unconscious from alcohol.
I don’t know about you, but I am *not* cool with that.
