Flirting: now consent to sex

But he admitted to raping her because he said sorry like that's enough.

So what if she French kissed someone sent suggestive texts that isn't consent for sex.

I despair I really do.

I know, right? Not even that far from me. By Canadian standards of distance, anyway.

Flirting is not consent for sex.

The only consent for sex is "Do you want to have sex with me?" "Yes"

Not being unconcious or too drunk to say no, or giving 5 no's and an "Oh, okay then"

It doesnt matter whether youve never met before, whether you know they like you or have flirted with you, or whether youre in a relationship or married, its still rape if you didnt ask, or they said no.

I willing to bet that the verdict will be appealed, and that the Crown will win on appeal. (Acquittals can be appealed in Canada)

I'd like to know what instructions the judge gave to the jury. While "mistake of fact" is a defense, "mistake of law" is not. In plain English, "I honestly believed that she consented" can be reason for acquittal IF the belief was actually reasonable. "I didn't realize that flirting is not legal consent" or "I didn't realize that people who are so drunk that they have passed out cannot give consent" is not a defense. The Supreme Court of Canada has really been VERY clear that someone who is not conscious cannot consent to sex. The leading sex involves kinky sex play where the couple was engaging in consensual sex and even consensual choking to the point of losing consciousness, but the accused did some new anal stuff while she was unconscious and that was considered to be sexual assault. So, this flirting = consent idea won't fly with the appeal court.

Thank fuck. Thanks for clearing that up, 2xx.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
