Anyway, main point is just that I want Dosed to know that some of what is being said about her and her situation has more to do with entrenched positions than anything she's actually said here.
You don't read very well, do you Bill.
And, what you do read, you clearly don't comprehend!
Dosed wrote:You guys are very quick to assume that it was my drinking, and not a drug that was slipped into my drink, that caused me to be in a very hazy mindset and to blackout.
Ockham's Razor. The simplest explanation is usually the correct one.
And who prescribed the morning-after pill if no doctor was consulted until the gynecology appointment, a whole week after the original incident?
Your gynecologist also delays appointments to patients who wonder if they've been raped for a whole week? A bit unusual, to say the least.

She is the one who desire to use the term rape because of after the fact she is unhappy with the sexual encounter and by the way label some young man a rapist at the same time.
All this to shift all the responsibility for the sex onto the young man to made her feel better.
Smart, now a 21-year-old college student, said Mitchell took her to a mountain camp....."After that, he proceeded to rape me," she said, poised and composed throughout her nearly two-hour testimony. She said he raped her three or four times a day and threatened to kill her if she ever yelled out or tried to escape.
I agree with you - and find it extremely ill-advised to throw around terms like "rape" (a criminal act, as Dosed doesn't seem to realize) not least because indiscriminate use of such a term lessens its impact in cases where truly horrific crimes have been committed
Most states are consistent with a definition of rape. In Indiana, rape occurs when a person knowingly or intentionally has sexual intercourse, defined as an act that includes any penetration of the female sex organ by the male sex organ, when the other person is compelled by force or imminent threat of force, is unaware that the sexual intercourse is occurring, or is so mentally disabled or deficient that consent to intercourse cannot be given. (Being unaware due to intoxication and being mentally disabled or deficient includes intoxication by alcohol or any other drug)
.....Dosed isn't "throwing around" terms like "rape". ....Because she was extremely intoxicated, what Dosed described could be considered rape under Indiana law ....
Well, gee, I could have sworn the title here reads "Did I get raped?", but then I'm not in Indiana, so what do I know
Because she was extremely intoxicated, what Dosed described could be considered rape under Indiana law, and it would be considered a crime.
That explanation would make sense were it not for the "date rape drug" possibility Dosed keeps bringing up
I don't want to accuse him of rape, because I know that I was all over him.
First of all I'd like to say that my intent in asking this question is not for the purpose of reporting the incident. I do not wish to get him in any kind of trouble at all and I don't want to cause him any social issues because of this.
By asking if I was raped, I think it's important to understand that I didn't want to do anything and I was unable to say I didn't want to do anything and I was really really scared. It has nothing to do with blaming him.
Considering this new information, I realize now that if this is all true, I really can't call this rape. And I may even have to call it consensual, albeit under the strong influence of alcohol.
I'm removing the context of rape from the situation due to the fact that I didn't say no. Also, because it's unlikely sex occurred due to what my doctor said.
