Obviously anything that brings more awareness is a good thing. Having heard on the radio that they are saying that going out and getting drunk and having sex with somebody constitutes to rape. How will that actually work. If both parties are drunk who would be the rapist? It would be different if somebody deliberately got somebody else drunk to take advantage but then is that not already an offence.
I think they should concentrate on enforcing the laws they already have rather than making up more laws that they cant enforce.
It is currently illegal in England and Wales to have sex with someone who is too incapacitated to consent, whether through drink, drugs, illness, whatever. I imagine similar applied in Scotland and NI as well but am not as familiar with their laws.
So everyone whose ever had sex with a drunk person is a rapist then? Everyone whose ever had sex while drunk a rape victim? That would make about 90-95% of the population both rapist and victim and they never even knew it
There's a huge difference between a rapist taking advantage of someone who is barely concious and one horny drunk person having sex with another horny drunk person.
