I have a salaried job with paid vacation and no wife/kids to oblige; I'll take off whenever and for whatever I want. Some of you guys really need to pull those outrageously large sticks out of your asses.
That said, I have no plans to take off for a game in the immediate future, nor have I really done so in the past. In high school I played hooky for Halo 2, and last year I took off for the PS4 launch, but that happened to fall on the anniversary of my mother's death, and I always take off for that anyways.
Having sex with a woman who is drunk won't get you charged with rape. You can be drunk and be an active willing participant.
In order to consent you must have the capacity to do so; in many states (maybe even most, but that would be a lot of research) being intoxicated is considered a diminished capacity, thus someone cannot legally consent. I never said it is frequently used as the basis for accusation, just that it could be in principal.
And I agree in regard to being an active participant, which is why I'm curious if the same standard is applied to the other person in cases where both are drunk (though I just said it is probably infrequently cited, I'm sure it has been).
Well this law just made nearly every college aged male a rapist because who the fuck hasn't given a girl a little weed or booze to spread her legs. College males now have basically zero defense against false rape accusations. The drunk part, shit what defines drunk? Give a girl a couple beers so she's buzzed, she claims rape the next day, you're fucked. Give her some weed, you're fucked. As already mentioned, good fucking luck proving she said yes or gave you a non verbal affirmation. Unless you have a text like hey come over lets fuck and she says Yes be there tonight you're completely fucked.
So yeah we're united, this board is 99% males, and this law completely bones males. We've completely removed sexual agency from women and blame the man for everything. If she regrets it, it's rape. If she gets pregnant, even though there is literally a pill you can take to not get pregnant, a pill you can take after, over a dozen types of birth control available, and abortion is legal we don't tell her tough shit. We tell the man tough shit shouldn't have slept with her you owe 18+ years of child support that is it's own fucked up system.
1.) 'Giving' a girl booze or weed to get laid sounds incredibly sad and pathetic. It's one thing to party together and hope you get laid, but the way you phrased it makes it sound like training a dog or something.
2.) If a guy is inebriated, he can't legally consent either; I would be interested to see if there is a legal precedent for that kind of defense (as there should be). And if the guy isn't drunk, that's just flat out skeevy.
