Ar Diem Posted January 4, 2013 Posted January 4, 2013 Pomita; fyi this is the California law: a rape is committed (among other circumstances) when "a person is prevented from resisting (sex) by any intoxicating, narcotic or anesthetic substance. . It doesn't say how much either, it is oh so grey. Given a certain amount of sexism this law will be applied 9 times out of ten to men who have sex with drunk women. So yeah Raj would know about this for sure, he's at a university and this coming week the episode is about sexual harassment. So the writers have made Raj both stupid and guilty. http://www.scu.edu/wellness/topics/sexualassault/What-is-the-Ca-law-regarding-rape.cfm I never re-watch this episode. Do you think it meant the burden for attempted rape or do you think it left it vague enough to sell us that it was legally consensual? I am sure they never intended to have him rape her but even if they did it accidentally it is even less cool. My brain didn't jump to rape because I would never ever do anything like that with an intoxicated female even if I had her consent beforehand. You just don't do that.
