Are men to remain responsible for their actions after drinking but women are not be held responsible?

What if a drunk man slept with a sober woman and then regretted it in the morning? Can he then accuse her of 'rape'?

This is all about driving a wedge between men and women so that men become afraid to even approach women. The terror events also have a similar effect in making people too afraid to gather together in public. It really seems that the el-ite are trying to atomise and split society apart so that people become alone, isolated and afraid to live their lives

Men should avoid having sex with women who have drunk any amount of alcohol, says barrister

A criminal barrister says men should not sleep with women who've drank any alcohol - because consent laws are misunderstood by some men.

Cathy McCulloch, who has 34 years of legal experience in sexual assault, advises men not to have sex with women if they’ve had a single drink in a Mail Online article, as this may compromise their capacity to consent.

She wrote: "The law is simple. If a woman has had a drink, and says after sex she did not have the choice, freedom and capacity to consent, the man can be accused of rape. A man being drunk is no defence in law.The real issue is there is no legal definition of what is ‘too drunk’.

"The test is whether the drink affected a woman’s ability to make a free choice to have sex. Men don’t seem to realise this."

It's an issue that frequently crops up in rape cases, explained Sarah King, a solicitor at Stuart Miller, to The Independent.

“If I could offer any advice to young men and woman regarding drunk sex and consent, I would suggest that a man proceed with extreme caution if there is a disparity between the level of drunkenness between him and the female, particularly if they have never had sex before and they are not in a relationship.”
I believe the public should have a say in their own fate and that is why i support free speech. Any media talking heads who argue that free speech must be curbed are arguing that the public should not be allowed a say in their own fate
