Definitions

Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse, which is initiated by one or more persons against another person without that person's consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority or against a person who is incapable of valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, or below the legal age of consent.[1][2][3][4] The term rape is sometimes used interchangeably with the term sexual assault.[5]

A decent legal[6] definition of Consent is Voluntary Acquiescence to the proposal of another; the act or result of reaching an accord; a concurrence of minds; actual willingness that an act or an infringement of an interest shall occur.

Contentions

"The way you grab me, Must wanna get nasty."

"She" consents it. In fact, she initiates it. Therefore, according to the decent legal[4] definition of "rape", it wouldn't be considered "rape".

Sex is sexual intercourse, love making.

Contentions:

Rape, as opposed to sexual intercourse, is sex initiated by one person against another without that person's consent.

"The way you grab me, must wanna get nasty"
Isn't it assumptions that rapists sometimes go off of in the first place? He is assuming that she wants to "get nasty" with him because she someone grabs him. If he were to act from these assumptions it could be a product of rape.

1. Yes.
2. Touching =/= consent to sex.
3. Flirting =/= consent to sex.
4. He uses fairly common language described by rape victims - http://jezebel.com...

5. Education about consent:

Because frankly, the more males are educated about consent, the better.
