Imagine a sensitive guy like me. I was like this in TF, it is my nature. This guy would stop if being told to stop by the womam who is about to have sexual intercourse. But the woman does not give any indication of unwillingness. There may be coertion, as there was in TF, but how can it be rape if there is no indication of resistence?

My intention is not to minimize the devasting effects of rape and the horrible consequences raped victims have to live with. I am splitting hairs because just as rape is devastating for women, I imagine it is also as devastating for a man to be accused of rape.
