*laughs* I agree. All this degrees stuff is inane. It`s either rape or it`s not like it`s either unique or it`s not.
I also suspect she`s done it before.
They can definitely act oddly at times.
On the other hand, it wouldn`t unfathomable to take advantage of someone in that condition.
Why wouldn`t the nurse have backed away to cover himself immediately instead of lingering around for others to see?
Oh and also on moral grounds, something is either rape or it isn`t. There aren`t any degrees of rape, they either said Yes or they didn`t.
I`d like that to be true, but it isn`t. Being medically trained doesn`t make it impossible to abuse people.
[quote]I doubt he is guilty of anything. [/quote]
I don`t know. The bias against him predisposes me to think he`s innocent, but that`s just me rooting for the underdog. I haven`t really seen any reliable information, so I can`t fairly judge the case.
One of the degrees is rape. The others are not rape.
Some people want to inflate rape figures for their own political reasons, so they mislabel other things as rape in order to inflate the figures.
Some people want to create rage that they can use to gain more power, so they take something already reviled and falsely apply the same label to other things, partly in order to create a degree of rage that would not exist if they were labelled honestly and partly to silence dissent.
In all cases, only the worst extreme is referred to and everything else is treated as if it was that. Disagreeing with that dishonesty can then be treated as support for that worst extreme.
I swear it`s just called "indecent exposure" here rather than a certain degree of rape.
Would you be fine if a male nurse working @ the home your grandmother is living in exposed himself to her on purpose?
this is america kid :P its always been guilty until proven innocent if you can afford it
"Wouldn`t that just suck if she really did unbutton his pants?"
Yes, it would very VERY much suck. Because (even though he probably did do it) peoples natural reaction to prejudice will have already convicted him. I haven`t read the comments here yet, but I`m almost 100% positive that nearly all of them will be something along the lines of; "drat THAT LIAR! ELECTRIC CHAIR HIS ASS!"
This is Rape in the second degree according to Washington. I think they charged him with rape because she was not mentally capable of giving consent, he is a health care provider, and the fact that he was over top of her implies that he had been more actively pursuing intercourse rather than just exposing himself. That combined with the ladies hand being in the vicinity of his crotch implies that he perhaps had forced her to touch him.
naw at that point shes a jaguar dude :P
and while his story is plausible its highly unlikely. and exposing yourself is NOT rape at worst he shoulda gotten attempted rape or indecent exposure.... and if genders were reversed no legal action would have been taken. I LOVE IT WHEN DOUBLE STANDARDS AGAINST MEN ARE OVERLOOKED. and yes i felt i needed to yell that haha
ack!! Sorry, I didn`t mean that last statement. My cat jumped on my keyboard and it just so happened that her little paws hit these keys exactly to spell that out. I know, I know... possible, but unlikely.
Sexual assault or indecent exposure maybe...
