I'm no expert when it comes to laws, but I do know in most of the sufficiently civilized countries today, the woman will always have the upper hand unless the man can provide medical proof that it was not rape. I hear in Canada, a woman can literally offer herself, then call the cops and act the victim of a sexual assault and thus get the male 'subdued' with taser guns and she doesn't have to have proof.
That being said, it is an epic failure of law, humanity and logic that such a defense would even be considered. I'm not happy that law is prone to finding men guilty in sexual assault cases and thus prone to abuse by women, but it's either semi-legalize rape or protect women... And representatives of such law listening to this BS is a legendary level of idiotic fail.
You might want to recheck your sources, Leo. Your assessment of the situation is pretty much backwards. By and large, women
have an awfully hard time proving that it was rape unless they
have medical proof. Hell, even medical proof isn't always enough to convict the bastards. In the case of leftover semen, the male could claim it was consensual (the "if I was raping her, wouldn't I have worn a condom to prevent leaving sperm behind?" defense). Even if he bruises her or leaves other signs of damage, there's the "she likes it rough" defense.
Rape is a huge problem for women even in "civilized" countries, and the amount of actual rapes FAR
outweighs the occasional contrived sexual assault for the sake of fucking over some unsuspecting guy.
