    And too-drunk-to-consent does not, at all, mean, unconscious. Far from it. A whole hell of a lot less drunk than unconcious [sic] is still too drunk to consent.
    This is simply not true. Lots of people might want it to be true, but it isn't.

    If someone asks a person in words "do you want to have sex?" and the response is "yes", that's consent. Also, other than threats of violence, there cannot be any rape when one party convinces the other one to have sex using words alone.

    It is not incumbent on any party to analyze how drunk the other party is and there is no practical way for that to happen in any case. It is completely unreasonable in any manner to convict someone for "should have known how drunk the other party was". Otherwise virtually everyone everywhere who has ever had sex with someone after two drinks is a rapist.

    "Yes" = consent. Period.
