Canada misses real point of sex consent debate: is she lying?

27 May

Canadians are talking about sex today, which still sounds like your grandparents describing how oral sex was in the fifties, but whatever:

OTTAWA — The Supreme Court has ruled that an unconscious woman can’t give consent to sex.

In a 6-3 decision Friday, the court restored the sexual-assault conviction of a man who performed an unwanted sex act on his female partner in 2007.

Right right right. I mean, this pretty much stands to reason, no? Amateurs. Here in AMERICA, we know what the far more salient question is: how likely is it that she’s totally lying about how unconscious she was?
