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).

How could one argue that it's rape if it's consensual?

Sometimes people are convicted of a rape charge when the act was both consensual and illegal, but there's nothing illegal just for sleeping together when you're both drunk so I don't see how any consensual sex could be considered rape.
