Rape. Or, ‘Having Sex’ With An Unconscious Person Isn’t Actually Sex. It’s Fucking Rape.

I’m not a lawyer, I don’t play one on TV, and I am not here to argue the finer points of law or legal language. But I’m seeing too many people arguing on the interwebs that lying #BrockTurner — and he is a garbage human who will forever be a hashtag — wasn’t convicted of rape. So therefore, he’s not a rapist.

I am not making this up. There are those (mostly men) who say that lying #BrockTurner’s convictions of assault with the intent to commit rape of an unconscious person; sexual penetration of an unconscious person; and sexual penetration of an intoxicated person are not the same as being convicted of rape. Therefore, it wasn’t rape.

The lily-white lightweight from Ohio will do only six months in a California county jail for dragging an UNCONSCIOUS woman behind a Dumpster — a fucking GIANT GARBAGE CAN. In an alley. — and putting himself and objects into her vagina. The guilty piece of filth knew what he was doing was wrong because he fled when he was spotted, by a couple of passerby, raping Jane Doe.

Now, I don’t know if he inserted objects into this unconscious woman’s body before or after he put some part of his body inside her, but that the fact that he would put objects into an unconscious woman’s body pretty much tells me everything I need to know about lying #BrockTurner.

Lying #BrockTurner is a monster.

Lying #BrockTurner is a fucking rapist.

Lying #BrockTurner is every woman’s worst nightmare.

And yet lying #BrockTurner has plenty of support. I am not talking only about his garbage-human father, who called his son’s rape of an unconscious woman “20 minutes of action,” or the judge who could have sentenced the entitled dudebro to 14 YEARS in prison but instead settled on 1/28th of that sentence. Or the mother who spawned this little shitstain and is so distraught that she can’t decorate her house. Or the rapist’s female friend who wrote a letter to the court pleading for leniency because it wasn’t lying #BrockTurner’s fault that he raped and assaulted an unconscious woman, it was the alcohol and political correctness run amok. (And JFC. That girl. I can’t even with her.)

I am talking about the casual excuses that you see on Twitter and on websites — and no, not talking about Reddit, because I would sooner stuff wasps up my arse than EVER go on Reddit — dedicated to the law in which commentors say, Well, technically, little dudebro wasn’t convicted of rape, so….

Like this clown:

And this great intellect:

Well, no, fuckwits: You’re not right. You’re factually incorrect. You’re literally arguing semantics here: Lying #BrockTurner wasn’t convicted of THE WORD RAPE. He WAS convicted of sexual assault and SEXUAL PENETRATION.

What part of inserting any portion of your body into another’s without their consent is rape, don’t you get? Let’s see what the FBI says, shall we?

There. Are we clear? No? Then I will say it again:

Rape is: “Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”

(And kudos to the feds for doing away with the archaic language that excluded men from the definition of being a victim of rape.)

I have to wonder if these same people clinging to semantics would argue that young males who are raped with objects by other young males, often in hazing or bullying incidents, aren’t actual victims of rape, because it didn’t involve penile penetration? Or when boys are raped by much older woman — and what the fuck is up with the growing numbers of female teachers preying on their students? Assholes everywhere, it seems— do they think that these students aren’t really victims, because you, wink, wink, every boy wants some action?

Wake the fuck up. Rape is not “having sex.” It is the assault of the most intimate parts of another person’s body, against her or his will, without his or her permission.

And lying #BrockTurner is a convicted rapist.
