And there you go, there's the big BUT.
Less than 10% of sexual assault victims report their assualt, of those less than 10% of those reports end up in charges being laid and of that less than 10% of those end up in a conviction and of that less than 10% do time in prison.
I expect that along this ardous process any person who cries false rape gets found out very quickly and would be in the exeme minority.
But go ahead, continue to blame victims and suggest you've been offended somehow.
"I believe the word Rape is thrown around all too often to suit covering up for bad decisions these days".
Do you REALLY think that's being respectful of rape victims?
Oh and I would appreciate it if you didn't roll your eyes at me. It's childish and unnecessary.
And yeah you are being really disrespectful to rape victims, especially when you said a man continuing to have sex with a woman when she doesn't want to anymore ISNT RAPE. Seriously.
Obviously I don't know the specifics oc the trial in question, nor do ANY of us. But the comments made in regards to a woman who has consensual sex then wakes to find the man having sex with her again- and this NOT being rape, are revolting.
You stated that she didn't want the act to continue which is not the case.
Thats what I was referring to.
I don't blame victims. I just don't believe these women where victims and I have a right to say that without being afraid of having my words twisted or being attacked.
Im saying we shouldn't use this case as an example.
I get that people admire him because of his wiki leaks stuff, but that doesn't change the general principle that when a woman has withdrawn consent or hasn't given it in the first place it is rape.

Oh lordy! I am NOT, I repeat NOT saying ALL rape victims are lying and making it up. I am saying however that there are silly people out there who DO make it up to suit their own agenda or because they feel they have been wronged by the man and want to get him back. To deny that there are people out there capable of this is naive.
But go ahead and read what ever it is you want from my posts to suit your particular agenda.....
However at the moment there are so many rumours flying around none of us really know what happened. So it's possible they are lying, but it's possible Assange assaulted them too.
As for thinking it's not rape if a one night stand sticks his penis into your vagina while you're asleep (because you let him sleep in the bed after consensual sex)... I think that's absurd. I know you said you dont mind if your husband wakes you up that way (not just fondling, sticking it in). But i believe you are in the minority .
Regardless the law says its rape.
