    Look I kind of get what they are saying...but not all crimes require intent. Does the "I was too drunk" defense pertain to negligence and recklessness as well? Those dont require you to have criminal thoughts.

    I think that is setting a really bad precedent but maybe uno can define it better for us?

    It's great fodder for philosophy, but I also see rich frat boys raping with impun-- oh, wait. They did before.
    I'm thinking the most common situation that will happen, is say, a Tinder thing, or similar. All are sober when the night begins, the individuals basically state that there will be sex that night, then they get all *ed up on whatever, and one individual changes their mind before the act occurs.

    I always back off in situations like this. Every scenario has a negative expected value for responding:

    1. Drunk, having a bad day, or crazy: will make them physically violent
    2. Conservative: will make them afraid and they'll use their pew pew d-ck enhancer
    3. Liberal: is clueless and/or fresh from college and will become more annoying

    Head down, back off. Let the f-ck die in a traffic accident someday.

    This could get messy in the future. Too drunk/high/etc is a legit defense in rape/assault cases. Yes, there are many strings attached, but...

    No just some biker guy. That is why I put it here not in the cop thread.

    Either way, I still have to jump through hoops and sacrifice a goat AND a few other farm animals to compete. Happens to trans girls of all ages.

    And what I've seen from conservatives and more is they ignore the 98.7% of the times a trans girl loses (we are inept at sports), but act like the rare events we win are a typical thing.

    The IOC guidelines won't matter as long as they aren't state or federal law, and as long as Goopers can pack the courts with far-right judges.

    That's the rub though. When the trans athlete is running sub 5:00 in the 1600m you are gonna have to answer questions. Would that athlete still be sub 5:00 with a more feminine bone/muscle structure? Again, there is solid, biological evidence in play here (and although it's a main driver, Testosterone is not the only factor). Conversely, if a trans track athlete is running a 7:00 1600m, no one says anything. They can compete in the JV meets all they want. Same thing with a 3rd string shortstop on the softball team or the 5th line defenseman on the hockey team. So by your description, a majority of trans girls will be left alone to enjoy their sports. It's when they compete at elite levels the questions get asked, and as I said earlier, there aren't exactly easy answers there.

    From the article:

    "The dispute, already the subject of a federal lawsuit, centers on two transgender sprinters, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, who have frequently outperformed their competitors, winning a combined 15 girls state indoor or outdoor championship races since 2017, according to the lawsuit"

    Winning 15 state level races over 3 years between two individuals is not exactly indicative of getting beat "time and time again". The girl who is cited in the article for beating the two in question won twice in that span.
