It’s not CA, fwiw, it’s a red state.October 9, 2017 at 5:20 pm #722842RonGuest
Yeah, I just checked the wording and the CA law applies only to college campuses, where yes-means-yes is now state law, making for an interesting confrontation with the Devos education department.October 9, 2017 at 7:34 pm #722848RedRoverRedRoverGuest
Well, in Canada this is sexual assault. Yes, even in a club. That’s why I called it that, because in my world, that’s what it is. Sucks for her that where she lives, random guys can stick their tongues down her throat and it’s perfectly legal. I didn’t realize there was anywhere that that was still the case.
And regardless, yet again, my point was that she was not the one to blame here, and people on this site were blaming her. This was her first kiss. A guy pulled her onto the dance floor, so she danced. Then she says he “turned her around” and made out with her. Like she wasn’t even facing him! He physically turned her to him and just went to town. That’s not OK. You guys think that’s just hunky-dory, then fine, that’s how it’ll stay if everyone supports it. Enjoy, I guess.October 9, 2017 at 7:42 pm #722849juliecatharineMember
Red you are incredibly off base here. If you actually think your definition of assault is the code the rest of the world lives up to you shouldn’t leave your house. Like, ever. People have a hard enough time being believed when they ARE assaulted without watering down the definition the way you are. Seriously, have you never been to a club or college party?October 9, 2017 at 7:49 pm #722851KateGuest
People have explained multiple times that guys dance behind you at clubs. If you’re dancing with a guy, you could easily not be facing him. You’re still dancing with him. This is what happens at clubs. People are there to dance, meet, hook up. It’s totally a choice to go there or not go, but that’s the atmosphere. Like several people have already explained, you shut down attention from guys you don’t want to engage with. This is all normal.October 9, 2017 at 7:50 pm #722852RedRoverRedRoverGuest
I’m flattered if you think I’m the one writing the criminal code of Canada, but I’m not. It was created entirely independent of my opinion. It just happens to align with it, thankfully for me.
