In wake of the Me-Too movement and acknowledging rape culture, people are trying to become more consciously aware of their decisions. On one hand, it has people scared to fraternize with each other because they don’t want to look like a predator. It’s been all over the media where people have lost their livelihoods over accusations, and where actual abusers aren’t being prosecuted properly.
Rape culture isn’t something that most people aren’t that well versed on. If you asked the average person to define rape, you’ll get an array of answers which shouldn’t be the case. It’s very simple on what this word means, and I’ve included the Webster definition as well. Rape is an unlawful act sexual activity and usually, sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against a person’s will or with a person’s will or incapable of valid consent.
Now that rape has been defined this brings me to the next two things that I wanted to discuss because these topics weren’t discussed in media to a great degree. Can women give proper consent while intoxicated? Charlamagne Tha God found himself in hot water this week describing his first sexual encounter with his wife. He stated that the first time that they had sex it was a drunken encounter. Personally, this is too much information to be disclosing with the public, but I digress. Whenever alcohol is involved this can go one or two ways. If a person is too incoherent to make decisions, then it’s not a good idea to pursue the encounter. Or the two parties are lightly inebriated, but each party is aware of what’s going on some feel that’s ok.
The question that needs to be asked is can you give consent while intoxicated? While some say not a chance, others say they know their limits. Royals, sound off!
