Great day for your club Jim. Congrats to the lads themselves and all the men who played a part in their development.

Oh here we go  :o

You can say nothing in this space without inferences being drawn  :-\

Im simply saying be careful out there BECAUSE people of dubious character exist in the world and the more awareness of the world around us help us make better choices (although risk still exists). No harm in that I don't think is there?

I have a problem with three big strong lads taking advantage of a young girl. They were acquitted of rape but it stinks.
The message is that young women should put a bad experience behind them and zip it. Women are encouraged to report stuff like this but when they do, they are subjected to a procedure that is devastating. That's the way it is and I understand why the process is the way it is.
If that girl was my daughter, I would be mad as hell but wouldn't let her go through that. I don't have a daughter but if my sons were accused of something like that, I would expect their lawyers to do everything they could to keep them out of goal. That's how polarised this kind of thing gets.

None of us has the right info to judge whether it stinks or not in fairness. You may be right and initial non verbal consent to 'get busy' got out of hand but what the hell do you or I know what went or what was in the hearts and minds of the individuals. She may have been complicit up to the point she was seen in compromising state by the woman she didn't know and felt frightened about her reputation at that point. I don't have a clue. All I know is I don't know ... how come so many are certain without holding the facts? Just like child abuse.... young people need to be educated about their responsibilities when it comes to physical relationships because its fraught with risk and very prone to error judgements.

Truly baffling but all too common now in this internet age. Social justice warriors have zero interest in nuance. They form an opinion that fits their ideology and then they saturate the airwaves with their hard edged version of the truth. How can anyone of good conscience say what they are saying with such certainty and with such venom? These people don't give a fook about the truth or the impact on the lives of those who they disagree with.
Anybody who uses the words "social justice warriors" sort of destroys their own argument.

And why would that be sid? Typical of the style you see on twitter I have to say.  ::)

I'd be fairly certain plenty of wild and crazy goings on have happened between multiple adults in the wee hours after a night out on the drink. I'd still define such frivolity as extreme even if everyone was happy with the arrangement (i.e they woke up the next day and accepted their willingness at the time to take part in the proceedings) . Just my definition though

Generally speaking ..... theres not enough acceptance (certainly on social media) that both parties need to take ownership of risk when it comes to their engagement with the opposite sex. Every normal physical relationship involves nudging things along with non verbal cues. You try to read the signals rather than kill the vibe with constant explicit requests to move to the next base so to speak. With copius amounts of drink, I'd say its very easy for non verbal signals to be misread and confusion to reign. Such a wooly area when verbal communication isn't used. This case was the very extreme end of this it would seem.
