Kathleen Parker, of the Orlando Sentinel, writes in her editorial today of a recent rape conviction, upheld by the California Supreme Court. She writes of a 17 year old boy in California, who was entered into consensual sex with a girl. During the act of intercourse she stated “I really need to go home”, and testified this was intended as a withdrawal of consent. Defendants own withdrawal followed about 90 seconds later. She confirmed she entered into the act consensually. Kay concludes “I hate to be the one to break it to you, fellas, but the gelding of the american male is nearly complete and the message is clear: You can do nothing right. As a friend’s world weary 15 year old son correctly summarized the Zeitgeist: “Women good, men bad”. John Z. wasn’t guilty of rape, he was guilty of being a male. If I were a guy, I’d find another country.”
Take that and run with it guys, if you want.
