I Believe that many men are wrongly prosecuted for rape for sleeping with a woman while both were drunk so "the consent does not count". My opponent will argue that if two people sleep together consensually under the influence of alcohol, the man should be charged with rape.

Round 1 is for acceptance only. Rounds 2-4 are for arguments and rebuttals and round 5 is for summing up arguments.

I will accept, but I want to clarify my position first: I am not arguing that the charge of rape be exclusive to males, but rather that someone knowingly having sex with someone that is obviously impaired by alcohol be considered rape, regardless of the gender of the offender (wordsmith).

I do not believe the man should be blamed if both he and the women were both as equally drunk. However, if the man is more drunk than the woman, the woman could be held accountable. But it all depends on the level of drunkeness. It is absolutely sexist to always blame the man no matter what.

Yet don't dare say drunk sex isn't rape. When you are very drunk, you don't know what's happening. Your judgment is impaired. If you don't know what's happening, how can you consent? How is that NOT rape?

Consent cannot be given by someone with mental disabilities, due to their incapability to give consent (similar to a child). Sex without consent is rape, therefore, having sex with a mentally disabled person is rape.

Here are some definitions, and as you can see they include force. http://dictionary.reference.com...
Having sex with mentally ill person can be regarded as a bad thing,but it not nearly as bad as rape.

In the same way that having sex with a mentally disabled person is rape due to their diminished capacity to understand a situation and give consent, it can be argued that someone coerced through threats to have sex is a victim of rape because fear has impaired their judgement.

@YengPu I have to disagree on that one. If he blackmailed her, her own fear forced her to have sex, not him.
In this case, she can sue him for blackmailing, but not for rape.

@Cold-Mind: There are more ways to rape a person than through physical force alone, such as blackmail, or just straight up mental abuse.

How much alcohol people who had sex had in blood is completely irrelevant. If they have no signs of physical fight on their bodies, it wasn't rape. It doesn't matter if she was able to defend, only thing that matters is did she defend.

The point of saying really drunk sex/blacked out sex is rape is that there is no consent therefore it is rape. No one will argue that sleeping together consensually, even if drunk, is rape because you have assumed that there is consent. That is a pretty big assumption.
