So my friend had sex with this guy not too long ago, because she was really drunk, and she wished she hadn’t, and when she told my I was horrified. The first thing that popped into my mind was “holy shit, did my friend get raped?” and I mentioned it and she told me that he was drunk too and that she’s the one who initiated it and, honestly because of Tumblr and the mindset this website has given me, I still thought, “That doesn’t matter, you were still drunk and he had no right, that’s still rape because you were drunk so you couldn’t consent.
What I didn’t consider was the fact that he was drunk too.
So wasn’t she technically raping him as well?
I feel like people are so quick to jump and make the woman the victim that they don’t even consider the fact that the man may not have consented if he’d been sober, either.
Why is the man the only one who’s expected to have self control?
That doesn’t seem right to me.
I don’t know.
