South Africa: Broadening the Scope of Rape

"With a new broader definition of rape, men will for the first time be able to lay a charge for being raped. Also forcing people to have sex, having sex as a result of abuse of authority and sex under false pretences will constitute rape."

Sex under false pretenses? False pretenses like saying, "I don't have HIV" when you know you do, or like saying, "I love you" when you don't?

Yeesh, every guy in the world would be guilty . . .

"Your new hairstyle is stunning."

"This rose pales in comparison to you."

"I promise we can cuddle and talk after."

We're doomed!
