THE largest proposed reform of sexual offences laws in Scotland is unveiled today, raising hope that the country's historically low rate of rape convictions can be improved.
For the first time in Scots law, the concept of consent in rape cases will be clearly defined in statute. It will also be spelled out to judges and juries that a woman cannot be held responsible for an attack on her if she was so drunk that she was incapable of agreeing to sex.
If the woman is so drunk she can't be held responsible for her actions, as we all know women are delicate flowers who aren't actually real grown up people, what about the man? Can he use the excuse he was so drunk he didn't realise the coyote ugly slapper wasn't actually Katie Price begging for it? No?
We are not talking about women who have been drugged or forced to have sex, we are saying that women who make the free choice to get drunk are given a free pass? Does that include if they decide to go for a drive rather than have a knee trembler in the alley? It is sexist dangerous nonsense and women are insulted by it.
