You all are crazy.


Say that once more with feeling. Because I value your opinion on this.

No. thanks for bringing it to my attention though

the drake effect works like this: First you hear talk of him on the radio. You dont know better so you assume its the dude from the nickelodean television series drake and josh. This is funny. Then you realize that all these horrible songs you were incorrectly attributing to lil wayne are actually drake tracks and you begin to feel a deep sense of disapointment because thats definately not the dude from nickelodeans drake and josh. then one day you see the video and it turns out drake is actually the crippled kid from degrassi. This is super funny. way better than the drake and josh drake. and it only gets better as he goes on talking about square roots, reading freestyles off his cell phone while funkmaster flex yells about it, and getting best new release from a pitchfork review

Let this be a lesson to you all, make sure you tell your friends every single detail of your encounters with woman, otherwise they're free to assume you just raped her (and if she was drunk its also fair to assume you were spiking her drinks)...

the facts:

op invited the forums opinion on his situation by posting on a public forum.
op made a post that sounded sketchy
op spoke about the woman in a way that made me feel uncomfortable
op disappeared for a few days after someone flat out asked if her raped the woman - a question he didn't directly answer in his reply
op has now clarified(?) the situation by alluding to his drinking problem

i still have no idea what is supposed to have happened.

exactly what i wrote right there.


op invited the forums opinion on his situation by posting on a public forum
so people speculating was always going to happen

op made a post that sounded sketchy
it did.

op spoke about the woman in a way that made me feel uncomfortable
again, it did/does.

op disappeared for a few days after someone flat out asked if her raped the woman - a question he didn't directly answer in his reply
he could have nipped these allegations in the bud there and then.

op has now clarified(?) the situation by alluding to his drinking problem
i still have no idea what is supposed to have happened.
i don't feel like things were clarified at all really. i am not saying op is still holding back - but if op doesn't get what happened it makes sense that the rest of us wouldn't either.

Now I'm wondering about Limbs. Maybe he was quick to assume rape because that is something he has experience with. A "we can smell our own," sort of thing.

Is there anything you'd like to come clean about, Limbs?


I don't know about limbs, but i assumed THE POSSIBILITY of rape (please note the difference between the assumption of possibility and the conclusion that it actually happened) because it is something that I have experience with. My experience was that I sat on jury duty during a rape case where the victim was intoxicated at the time of the incident. From this, I learned the legal definiton of rape, which is something to the effect of :

261. (a) Rape is an act of sexual intercourse accomplished with a
person not the spouse of the perpetrator, under any of the following
circumstances:

3) Where a person is prevented from resisting by any intoxicating
or anesthetic substance, or any controlled substance, and this
condition was known, or reasonably should have been known by the
accused.
(4) Where a person is at the time unconscious of the nature of the
act, and this is known to the accused. As used in this paragraph,
"unconscious of the nature of the act" means incapable of resisting
because the victim meets one of the following conditions:
(A) Was unconscious or asleep.
(B) Was not aware, knowing, perceiving, or cognizant that the act
occurred.

My other relevant experience is working and knowing a women's resource center and thus learning how common it is and how similar the circumstances of rapes are to the circumstances of OM3N's story. Thus, for me, given the information, it was completely possible that a rape occurred. Though I guess this made me guilty of "flashing my feminist credentials" or however it was said earlier.

If you are shocked that the question of rape was brought up, then you might be unaware of the reality of rape, or were being disingenuous. We were lead to believe that OM3N and the girl were intoxicated, that they had sex, and that she flipped out in the morning. Read the above partial definition of rape and explain to me how this was completely out of the realm of possibility given the information we had.

In any case, my point, which seems to be getting lost in the righteous indignation, is that there is a difference between the following two statements:

"Rape is one of the possible things that may have happened"

And

"OM3N definitely raped her"

Please note the difference in the two statements. I insist that while the former statement was justifiably made, it was incorrectly interpreted as the second statement.

I believe that "backpedaling" happening is not really backpedaling, but rather attempts to clarify this point.


Apperently logic has no place here.

I think the lesson is, even if someone talks about a girl in a way that makes you uncomfortable, rape or sexual assault shouldn't be your go to assumption unless you know that someone has claimed that a rape went down.

The word "rape" has been so depreciated in value on this forum that it might as well be JeMarcus Russell.

Lants may or may not be smoking meth, but she has a point. There has not been one single shred of legitimate evidence presented to prove that OM3N hasn't been raping his way across Thailand for as long as he's been there.

I mean, are we really going to let an accused rapist transcribe a text message from his "alleged" victim and just call it good!?

You're on point, Lants. Also, you're a woman (memo to desert penguin).
