Consent is a consistent freely given, clearly stated “yes.”
‘The jury deliberated for 45 minutes. They ruled that Man #2, indeed, could have given consent for the blowjob while suffering a drunken blackout, thus letting Man #1 off the hook.’
Yeah? Or otherwise what would have happened? This story is complete bullshit. Every gay person on the face of this planet should be angry as Hell that someone could actually go on trial for something that stupid in the first fucking place. The Alcohol Induced Amnesia argument? How about the fucking Heterosexual Panic Defense argument? Man #1 is lucky he escaped this homophobe with his life intact. So how about you put Man #2 on trial for speculation that Man #1 was actually in the car with a madman who didn’t confess beforehand to being a potential lunatic spree killer? The audacity of these straight people assuming that any gay man would purposefully put themselves that far in harm’s way.
You can’t rape the willing.
@MacDonald: That idea is new in the last 6 months – frankly. If someone asks for a blowjob – they have consented. Furthermore, NZ laws are different from America’s — just to point that out.
Sorry to say but something similar happened to me in my 20s where I was orally raped. A “friend of a friend” insisted he take me home then brought me back to his house put me on the couch to sleep. I was way too groggy for the number of drinks I had and pieced it together afterwards that he put the “date rape” drug in my drink when I went to the bathroom. Over the course of the night I woke up to a bj and when I got my wits told him to go, but he kept coming back. In the morning I wanted to leave but his family woke up so I embarassingly accepted some coffee and a shower. Even though I locked the bathroom door he came in naked and tried to blow me in the shower. I was too embarassed to tell anyone. Get your heads out of your asses. This happens!
