Okay, so I need to ask something to the tumblr community, but it deals with consent and rape, so here’s your warnings. Scroll past if you don’t want to see that kind of stuff.
Alright, so consent is important when it comes to sexual activity. And it’s pretty much agreed (or at least reasonable people will agree) that if a woman is intoxicated, she cannot give consent. So if a man propositions her for sex, being drunk she cannot give consent. I’m fine with that.
However, I want to propose a hypothetical situation: Take a situation with a man and a woman. The woman is intoxicated and the man is sober. The woman propositions the man for sex. Can that be considered rape?
Same situation as above, but now the man is also intoxicated. As before, it is the woman would propositions the man. Can that be considered rape?
I am not trying to argue the first situation, for the record. These are merely hypothetical questions to see what kind of opinions exist. Because in my experience, these situations are not typically brought up, but should still be considered.
