Here's a question for ya
Imagine. A young girl of 15, alone in the city, working a low-paid job, trying to earn enough money to get back home. A customer, a man of twenty, comes into the shop offering friendly smiles. He is always with his girlfriend, but he flirts with the 15 year old girl. She is flattered.
The night of her 16 th birthday, she is working again when the young flirtatious man comes back in the shop. He gives her a flower, a wish of happy birthday, and asks when she gets off work. The girl is happy that someone gave her something for her birthday, and the young man says he has another gift for her. So she meets with him after work. The man's girlfriend isn't around. The "gift" is a bottle of Jack Daniels. The girl gets in his truck, holding the flower he gave her, and begins drinking with him.
It didn't take long. The girl was heavily drunk.
It didn't take long. The young man led the young girl beneath a bridge where he raped and sodomized her.
Was this really rape? The girl had flirted with the man. She was flattered by his attentions. She accepted his gifts on her birthday. She must have known, right? Yeah, she knew a few things. This girl was not innocent, but she was surprised by the pain of being flipped and violently entered. Afterward, he drove her to her street and dumped her out. She never saw the man again.
Was it rape? Is being drunk "no excuse"?
Does anyone know?
