In Oklahoma, you can do anything you want to your date if you can get her drunk enough

Well, Oklahoma has once again proven itself even more Neanderthal than Texas.  This week an Oklahoma court threw out a rape case where a 17-year-old boy had sex with an unconcious 16-year-old girl.  Basically they said “She didn’t say no…”

The ruling, a unanimous decision by the state’s criminal appeals court, is sparking outrage among critics who say the judicial system was engaged in victim-blaming and buying outdated notions about rape.

But legal experts and victims’ advocates said they viewed the ruling as a sign of something larger: the troubling gaps that still exist between the nation’s patchwork of laws and evolving ideas about rape and consent.

The case involved allegations that a 17-year-old boy assaulted a girl, 16, after volunteering to give her a ride home. The two had been drinking in a Tulsa park with a group of friends when it became clear that the girl was badly intoxicated. Witnesses recalled that she had to be carried into the defendant’s car. Another boy, who briefly rode in the car, recalled her coming in and out of consciousness.

The young lady was immediately taken to an emergency room.  She awoke while undergoing a rape-kit exam and said she had no knowledge of the past couple of hours. Because she didn’t “resist”, the court ruled that “forcible rape” didn’t happen.  The young man’s attorney, Shannon McMurray agreed with the ruling.

“There was absolutely no evidence of force or him doing anything to make this girl give him oral sex,” McMurray said, “other than she was too intoxicated to consent.”

And that’s what passes for logic here in the Village.
