"I was raped" - "No, we had sex"
I was at an interesting presentation on sexual assault yesterday, and a case was brought up about a date rape situation.
The girl messages the guy she's been on a couple dates with to come over. He brings some beers. They play video games, order a pizza. They're making out, wrestling, end up on the bed.
She says stop and he stops immediately and sits on the edge of the bed, and then she tickles him. They're tickling each other, she says stop again, and again, he stops and backs off. This happens a few times.
So, they've just started and she lets out a week little stop, but she's said it like 5 times just playing right? So he doesn't stop and she doesn't say it again.
And then she told her friend that he raped her.
To me, I'm thinking, she's established 'stop' as being meaningless. If she wanted him to stop, saying 'no, really, get off me' would be a logical follow up, not just using the same word you've used 5 times while playing around and only once and dropping it.
What do you think? Does it sound like rape? like she just felt guilty about the drunk hook up? Or maybe she's right to feel that way, but he didn't really do anything wrong?
