How to Not Be a Rapist 
Tuesday, October 8th, 2013 | 06:18 am (UTC) - Priceless!
One for the ages steve!
This video had all the parody McCarthyism Documentary vibe (Duck and Cover!), and the camera angles... what a laugh!
Much like your shutdown videos (and debt ceiling ones you might have to make later, when the fiat currencies collapse) its sad that in this day and age, an infotainment video on rape has to be made. Rape (domestic violence more generally) has a higher prevalence and incidence rate than we'd care to admit: and from a constructivist perspective, its more a social problem (as it seems to effect all different social strata) than a purely individual/psychological one as some 'experts' would have people believe.
Its probably a very under-reported phenomena thats for sure...

The hypotheticals were interesting, especially: during what time frame does rape occur? (is it definable by a single moment, or a string of events) , what is the statute of limitations on bringing a case against rape?
Can a person consent in a given calendar year, and then a decade after... decide that particular sex act was rape, and combined with the statute of limitations (in some jurisdictions, there are no statutes of limitations and/or an inquisitorial system), not to mention inherent in the judi-cial system, actually sue the person/get criminal state sanctions a decade on?

Great video!

I came across your vids on YouTube. I just want to say thanks for your smarts, your courage, your common sense, your eloquence, and for the all round defence of what you'd think wouldn't need defending: rationalism and the empiricist heuristic way. Ontology. Ontogeny. Onwards...

Stay with it dude.
