    In the spin room after last night's debate, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), one of Donald Trump's staunchest supporters, responded to the question, "But beyond the language, would you characterize the behavior described in that as sexual assault if that behavior actually took place?"
    It's not that hard to figure out Jeff. You reach out with your hand, and grab it.

    Talk about an out-of-touch politician. :rolleyes:

    What did trump say?

    " if you are a star, they just let you"

    If the good digger in question is just letting him grab her as he saw fit. Is that not consensual?

    I suppose you have to look at it through their lens. If you are delusional enough to believe that every woman in the world is lusting after you, I can see how you would not characterize grabbing a woman's vagina as sexual assault.

    Missouri is the home of legitimate rape. Alabama the home of marrying your sister.

    Everyone who tries to defend Trump ends up looking like rape apologists on TV, they won't be able to sustain it for long.

    Did he grab them by the ***** without their consent or did they allow it?

    Ah the "every woman wants it argument."

    So out-of-touch. So Jeff Sessions.

    That would explain his confusion.

    I'm just trying to wrap my head around the idea that people who support Clinton are in an uproar about some comments Trump made (idiotic and stupid) about women when the person they support had sought to destroy any woman who dared to try and bring down their empire because her husband, who likes to sodomize women with cigars, can't keep his own schmeckle in his pants. Hello pot, meet kettle.

    No, it's not. Just because a person doesn't immediately scream, cry, or fight doesn't mean they gave consent.

    "Allow" doesn't mean consent. A person does not consent through silence.

    The fact that you can't wrap your head around the difference is the problem.

    You're trying to confuse the issue. Clinton's guilt does not make Trump innocent.

    Instead, it's possible that Clinton committed consensual sexual acts with his intern and Trump is a serial sexual abuser.

    And, it's possible that Clinton rapaciously abused his power and Trump is just a braggart.

    It's also possible that they're both sexual predators protected by power and influence, or they're both idiots.

    Not just feminists. Wikipedia too ;)

    Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration perpetrated against a person without that person's consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority or against a person who is incapable of giving valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, has an intellectual disability or is below the legal age of consent. The term rape is sometimes used interchangeably with the term sexual assault.

    Are there no non-verbal means of consent?
