Oh please, even I don't believe that, and I take the same stance on their relationship as Sheldon. Leonard didn't force anything onto Penny, obviously she had at least some desire, if only subconsciously, and most importantly, she was the one to initiate the encounter. If Penny had ZERO desire towards the action while she was still thinking straight, she wouldn't have done so even while inebriated, likely suggesting she still hasn't come to terms with her true feelings for Leonard. Besides, based on the implied, Penny was dominant anyway, if you know what I mean. That's not rape, that's bad judgment on *her* part.

Well, I think no one raped or got raped.

Penny was drunk but also the one to suggest the event. And Leonerd agreed to have sex with her. I don't see anyone against his/her will.

I looked up rape laws in California. It can be considered rape when the women is intoxicated which prevents her from resisting. However, in this situation it was Penny who was the aggressor and the initiator of the sexual contact. So even from a legal standpoint no rape occurred.

Well, everyone said it already but: Absolutely ridiculous, dottygray. SHE asked HIM for intercourse. And it's not even him who got her drunk. Basically, she just shows up at his door and ask for sex, on her own.

Sure, she didn't think things throught, but that's nothing like rape. It just a mistake she did.

But you're either being ridiculous or misandric for suggesting that. Maybe both.

Lol, wasn't Penny the one leading leonard to the room BY the hand? hahahaha "she is leading the rapist towards the rape" C'mon! Anyway, as ridiculous as this thread might be, I do appreciate the effort in creating some sort of misunderstood discussion in the forum it was funny.

It was just one of those "drunken mistakes" but that was all and even quite a rodeo ride for leonard ("yeeehaaaw") lol that was some funny writing. At least leonard can't complain too much from besides being used by the girl he loves and also at least he got some sex that's why he said: "oh okay" but we all have to wait till next season to see how both of them react though I don't think there will be any grave nor serious consequences, afterall, the show is a comedy not a soap opera.

It's not rape. It's only rape if one part of the party is non-willing. Penny pulled him into the apartment saying they were going to have sex.

Leonard replied. "Okay." He did not refuss, stop it, or not want it. He was 100% willing. No rape happened in this show.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Billy Madison says hi.

I'm not generally one to say this sort of thing, but since this topic is pretty much complete crap as a premise, would it be possible to have the whole thread deleted?

I don't see any productive discussion coming out of this at this point.

JMHO.

No, it's not. There's nothing to discuss.

The law in most common law countries is pretty clear on what constitutes a sexual assault - it is the failure to gain and acknowledge consent.

Not seeing where the lack of consent by either party occurred. So far the law in most common law countries has not found extreme intoxication to void the ability to consent. However, even if consent is giving at the beginning of any sexual act, once the consent is removed (iow, please stop - I've changed my mind) any continuation of a sexual act is without consent and therefore falls under the blanket law of an assault. Last time I looked, in a common law country, No still means No.

I just realized this thread was opened over 2 years ago right after the Season 3 finale. We should just let it die and fade away.

Rubbish.

Since the show is set in California, CA criminal code would apply. Read here;

One post only eh? Trolling for a response perhaps. The question may indicate some underlying issues. Where's Leonard's mum when she's needed.

The scenario doesn't meet the criteria. Case closed. dismissed. Lets move on
