Any sexual force, in any amount, against any person, is an abomination. My only question is why it took so long to make that reality official.

We should not need an FBI agent to change the definition of rape! What is so difficult you stupid humans to understand? Rape is rape period. Rape happens mostly to women but it also happens to young boys and men.
Human animals are inherntly stupid and selfserving!

@Rosemary, you're right, we shouldn't, but we DID!
And now all those that somehow managed to get away with it in the past are history..they nor anyone else will have that same loophole, thank god.
Without going into details, I was involved in a test case here in WA. 30 YEARS AGO WHEN WE TRIED TO GET THIS CHANGED!!!
So please do not look upon this lightly, it is HUGE step
forward, one that was desperately needed.
Thanks Cal.
