birds of a feather

If anyone says they don't want sex with you and then you force them to have sex with you - that is rape. It doesn't matter if you had sex with them 5 minutes ago, it doesn't matter if you are in the middle of sex - if they say no, that means no. There are some people who do not agree with that view even though it is the law here in this country. George Galloway has said

In a video podcast which sparked outrage, the Bradford MP and notorious polemicist suggested sex without consent should not always be thought of as rape, if a woman has previously consented to what he called "the sex game". He added that Assange was merely guilty of "bad sexual etiquette".
This attitude seems to infect men of a certain age. On The Standard many debates have raged around this issue and posters such as RedLogix, Colonial Viper, Morrissey, vicky32 and others have added their views and they are similar to galloways, and IMO they all support rape culture with their comments and attitudes.

They are no better than Todd Akin and his sicko comments about legitimate rape.
Then on Sunday, he was asked by local news station KTVI-TV about his no-exceptions view on abortion. The 65-year-old lawmaker replied: "It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that is really rare.
"If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has said Mr Akin's claim "contradicts basic biological truths".
Galloway and the assangefanboys are guilty of failing equality 101 - it is very basic stuff but the truth is easily hidden when privilege is being protected.
