    You're not guilty of rape: Those skinny jeans were too tight to remove by yourself, jury rules | Mail Online

    Seems rather spurious to me.

    Like a would be rapist couldn't just threaten to beat the shit out of his victim if she doesn't let him pull off her pants.

    I guess if the woman opts to be raped, rather than beaten and raped, she consented. :rolleyes:

    If you are going to claim rape, you should have some bruises to show you at least resisted. She got drunk, went home with the guy & then up to his bedroom. Now she sobers up & claims rape. I need a little more proof than a drunk persons word.

    Can't a woman run faster with her dress up than a man can with his pants down?

    So saying no isn't enough for it to be rape huh? She has to take a beating too.

    I'm not aware of that particular statute, can you provide a link please?

    Assuming we're getting the entire story (which I doubt) this is outragous.

    I am a size 6 and own a pair of skinny jeans. They are not as tight as they look and the waist is average for most jeans, except the leg part is a little snugger. It does not take me any more effort to take my skinny jeans off than it takes me to take regular jeans off. The judge should have used another argument!

    She could have taken her jeans off willingingly and it still be rape.

    If she did not consent to sex and he had sex with her anyway its rape.

    this is a really stupid Jury

    I seriously hope you are kidding about the bruises.

    The article says nothing about her being drunk.

    Seriously, Kiss, your response is nothing short of moronic.
