The Icky Amendment

On today’s #TWiBRadio, Rick Ross wants women to know that they misunderstood him. He didn’t mean rape, he just meant drugging a woman and having sex with her without her consent. Which is rape.

Then we’re joined by Olivia St. Clair, resident TWiB ‘Ratchet-Ass’ lawyer who bent our brains into logic pretzels while explaining the legal rationale behind DOMA, Prop 8, and the potential outcome of the SCOTUS decisions.

    To Republicans, there’s no such thing as rape — just unexpected sex. Which, to them, is a good thing…

    Yeah, I wasn’t really convinced by Roze’s explanation there. Try again buddy.

    So, I wait and wait until the 5 minute mark, and finally hear his response, which is that he didn’t use the word “rape” and using that word is really bad and he is not down with that, hip hop is not down with that word.

    What the motherfucking fucked up fuck?

    Oh, and props to the interviewer who instead of taking him up on that stupid comment, says Don’t rap lyrics get misunderstood all the time? waaah

    @mclaren: Republicans don’t understand the concept of consent in most areas of life. Well, not unless it’s *their* consent, but not the consent of others. This is why I say cats are Republicans.

    Maybe it’s because of being female and all, but I really don’t get this assumption by (some) men that if I’m unconscious, it’s A-OK to do whatever they want with my body because, hey, I’m not using it. And it totally wouldn’t be traumatic for me to wake up and find out someone had been sexually assaulting me while I was unconscious because it’s not like I’ll remember it, amirite?

    How the fuck would a woman “not know” she’s on Molly? It’s not going to make her pass out, FFS.

    Sidestepping the obvious issue of consent, she’s going to know that some shit is up. I’m not excusing the douchebag, but he needs to stop namechecking drugs if he doesn’t know what they are.

    @Mnemosyne: Good point… I wonder, would this chump be good with it if he were to pass out and be sodomized or otherwise molested by some guy? I’m guessing not….
