Should "date rape" be a lower offense than rape: Is the severity of rape greater than that of date rape?

  • Some cases of rape are worse than others.

    We have to understand whether both individuals gave consent. If there are two drunk partners, it isn't right to say one is more responsible than the other.

    Date rape amongst couples should not be treated the same as rape amongst sexual predators and helpless victims.

    If a partner chooses to intoxicate themselves than they need to know that they are putting themselves at risk.

  • Rape is rape

    There shouldn't be lower offense. Rape is rape. No means no. There should be no such thing as a lower offense of rape, if anything some cases of rape should have higher offenses. No matter what, date rape is rape, there shouldn't be considered different. RAPE IS RAPE NO MATTER WHAT.

  • Rape is rape.

    Any way a rape is done, it still remains a rape. No matter what the circumstances, even if being drugged and not feeling pain, it doesn't mean the severity of the rape isn't the same. If you don't have the consent of the other person (male or female), you have no right to do anything sexual to them.

  • Rape is rape.

    If someone, man or female, is raped... It's rape. There should be no "mercy" for the "poor male/female who raped their date" because "well they were on a date". No consent, it's rape and whoever committed the crime should pay.
    Rape is rape and date rape may even be worse, since the victim knew the offender.

  • Rape is rape.

    Date rape and rape are the same exact thing. If the male/female didn't give full, 100% consent then it is always rape. Date rape and rape mean different things but the offense is still as bad as it would be if it was just "rape". They're both the same exact things.

  • A Misleading Name

    Rape and date rape are the same thing. This question should be "should date rape be charged as forcible rape?" Date rape means that the person was an acquaintance, and in some cases, a trusted friend. Date rape is not only rape but also a betrayal of trust. Of course they should be charged the same.

  • Date rape is still rape

    The severity of date rape is the same as severity of rape. Just because a rape occurs on a date, does not make the rape less severe. If anything it adds to the injury, because it is inflicted by a person you knew and trusted enough to go on a date with.
