Rape Issue

Dan Arkoff says in his letter of Aug. 25 that getting your date drunk to get sex is not rape. He suggests that if your date voluntarily gets so drunk that she "fails to resist" then you have "the right to assume that she has consented." I suppose this means that if Dan is so drunk that when some big guy in a bar suggests that he hand over his wallet and Dan "fails to resist," that's not robbery. Say Dan, how 'bout a beer?
