One striking reversal of course that nobody noticed was that the left has now abandoned the concept of spousal rape and date rape and did so with alarming ease. Michelle Goldberg in the NYTimes informed us recently that the rape of a teenage girl in a school bathroom in Virginia isn’t rape but “relationship violence,” since the girl allegedly had relations with the rapist previously.
So remember, if you consented to sex with somebody in the past, he can’t rape you. Consent is apparently granted for life. At least, if the rapist is pleasing to the left and has some fashionable identity. We’ve been #MeTooed straight back to the middle ages.
