Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
That is a dangerous standard. What constitutes emotional manipulation? Saying "you won't have sex with me, you don't love me, I'm leaving"? That could be considered emotional manipulation. If it causes her to consent to sex when she really didn't want to, are you calling that criminal sexual assault??
If so, there's one hell of a lot of people ought to be in jail I guess, including quite a lot of women....

Especially within the bounds of a relationship. There is a default assumption in most relationships is that the partners will be monogamous. The flip side of that is the assumption that they'll be having sex with each other. If a woman refuses to have sex with her boyfriend, but expects him not to have sex with anyone else either, I think it's perfectly acceptable to say "If we don't start having sex, I'm leaving you". That's not emotional blackmail, it's simply a statement of fact because she's not holding up her end of the bargain.

If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
This wasn't rape at all....
So, this man was "abusive" in this woman's mind, but yet she stayed for three years?Yes, he was her boyfriend. No, he hadn't pinned her down, or threatened violence. But Espinosa insists that he coerced her, psychologically and physically, into having sex against her will for most of their three-year relationship. She resisted, told him no, pushed him away. More often than not, he persisted and she gave in "just to get it over with," she says.
So the authorities that she reported it to investigated, and concluded that her complaint was unsubstantiated...Now, CNN thinks this is rape? This is ridiculous....She had a boyfriend that she didn't want to have sex with, and rather than let him go, she stuck with the relationship, and then cries 'rape'.... This was a poor example chosen by CNN.It took five months for school administrators to reach the conclusion that Espinosa's complaint was "unsubstantiated."
I was raped by 3 girls when I as about 16 - that was weird.
If they had asked I would have been willing..... lol
It's odd how females and males mentally process the alleged rape.
Not that rape is a serious issue but... From an Anthropological perspective its extremely objective.
Um, yeah....Dream on....College campi have always been run by admin that is heavily liberal leaning, you know the "live and let live" mentality....These kids go off to college as their first experience away from mom and dad, and in some cases get a little carried away. If there is something to prosecute then by all means go after it, but you will never see college campi run like military training camps.
