can women committ rape?

Postby TerraFrost » Tue Sep 07, 2004 9:47 am

(inspired by this thread)

well... can women committ rape?

in a legal sense, i believe they can (ie. if a teacher and an underage student get together), but practically speaking, can they?

(if other admins / appropriate mods feel this topic would be better suited in another forum, feel free to move it)

Nicole Bass definitely could. Although it's debatable as to whether she's actually a woman or not. :wink:

Anyway, on a more serious note, yes, I do believe it is possible for women to to commit rape. I know I remember several cases where women were convicted of rape.

cases that didn't involve a woman having sex with an underage boy? if so, i don't think those really count. i mean, if its consential, what should age matter?

Yes, I think that they can. I haven't heard any news stories about it, though...

Que? You sentence there doesn't really make any sense. Perhaps you meant "cases that involved a woman having sex with an underage boy?"

Heh, I changed what I said. I did that at first because I was lazy and it was the easiest thing to change. Then I realized the double negative, so I changed it (right before you made your post there).

Just telling people that since what you're saying now doesn't make any sense in conjunction to what I'm saying.

Of course women can commit rape.

If the man says no, doesn't want to have sex, and the woman forces herself on him, thats rape. Plain and simple.
Vive le titre de deux.
In an ironic twist, the only trait I find completely appaling is intolerance.

ever heard of date rape

although, there is a thing involving the male anatomy that must be activated in order for penetrative action to occur. although, i guess fondling the male and/or penetrating him with foreign objects could constitute rape.
