Given two adults, can an adult female rape an adult male? There might be a category issue with this one. I think adult female rape on adult men is categorized as unwanted sexual encounter or something like that but it’s not usually categorized as rape. So dissecting whether it’s possible is tricky because of how things are currently categorized. So, I’d have to say “I don’t know” at present.

Ah, I forgot about this thread. Thought I saw it turned off.
Chris Hucik Nothing is a blank slate though. In Philosophy 101 perhaps it’s normal behavior to start from 0. If we’re doing philosophy, that’s possible. But if discussing real world issues rather than fictions, context matters.

You’d be correct if this was a philosophy class though.

Skyler Hart As you’re dragging people not into this conversation at the moment into my Yes/No scenario I can’t answer because I don’t have confirmation that that’s what Jaime believes.

You say “according to you” but you see, that’s not enough to answer because then you’re looking for subjective validation of your personal opinion about another’s beliefs that aren’t participating and asking for my agreement.

Give me a better “yes” possibility and I might be able to give you a yes/no answer.

It’s a tough call. I think it’s designed to be parsed: “The penetration…. without consent of the victim” seems to show the victim must be penetrated.

“Another person” seems to imply the one doing the penetrating.

Yet, you’re also right: It’s possible to also read it where “another person” can be “victim”.

Where the sciences shine is in their pragmatism. But the concept of “scientific fact” as in “It’s a scientific fact that…” is a social construct, often misused, especially in statistics.
