So CeeLo (aptly named if you ask me) denies that rape can happen when someone is unconscious. First, he is apparently drawing a distinction between sex and rape. He is not asserting that sex can’t happen; rather that rape can’t happen if someone is unconscious. Or, more precisely, that the degradation of rape can’t happen is someone is unconscious. Not to get into legal distinctions here, my couch never passed the California Bar exam. But I do believe there is a simple thought experiment worthy of the moment.
I challenge CeeLo: imagine waking up and finding yourself naked in a bed with a naked man or two who were obviously recently sexually satisfied by having sex with you while you were unconscious. Were you Raped, Mr. Green?
