WTF????????? – ‘Utah Republican wonders if it’s OK to rape an unconscious woman as long as that unconscious woman is your wife’


  • Is there some part of ‘unconscious’ or ‘not able to consent’ that is unclear??????

Obama's Response
‘Utah is currently considering a measure that would clarify the definition of consent to tighten legal protections for people who are assaulted while unconscious or otherwise incapacitated’.

“This is something that’s been a long time coming,” state Rep. Angela Romero, a Democrat from Salt Lake City who is also the sponsor of the bill, told the Salt Lake Tribune’.

“At the end of the day, if someone’s unconscious or they’re a vulnerable adult, then the logical answer is: Don’t try to have a sexual relationship with them.”

But state Rep. Brian Greene, a Republican from Pleasant Grove, isn’t so sure it’s that simple. During a debate on the measure, Greene offered the following hypothetical’:

“It looks to me now like sex with an unconscious person is, by definition, rape”.

“I hope this wouldn’t happen, but this opens the door to it: an individual has sex with their wife while she is unconscious — or he, the only other way around, if that’s possible, I don’t know. But a prosecutor could then charge that spouse with rape”.
