Definition Argument- haveanelephasticday

The ongoing question the courts are struggling with is, “What constitutes rape?” Victims are coming forward and then being pushed aside because society’s view on rape is askew. Women are accusing men and the justice system is accusing women of crying wolf. Too often men claim women consent but the woman is not in a proper state of mind. According to federal law rape includes forms of sexual assault, other genders, and instances where the victim is incapable of giving consent because of temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity, including due to the influence of drugs or alcohol or because of age.” That means that if someone doesn’t consent or they consent while impaired, it is rape.

    According to your own paragraph, the courts are not grappling with the question of “what is rape?” Instead, victims and the accused (meaning also their lawyers) disagree on what constitutes consent. The rest of the conditions rape has to meet are not in much dispute, but consent certainly is.

    Please begin with an illustration. Tell me a story from the news in just one brief paragraph about a victim whose mental state is disputable, who was nonetheless unable to prevail in her complaint against the accused(s). We need a reason to want to solve this problem with you. Until we do, we’re not engaged in your topic.

    In my newer works, I have included illustration. I found multiple articles on rape cases and what the victims went through.
