Senate Seals No-Contact Sex Assault Loophole

Ok, so as I read this article, lots of thoughts ran through my head. Like how sad it is that we need to have a law to tell people not to shoot a load in someone else's face without permission, why on earth would someone do this, anyway even when drunk, what does Kobe Bryant think of this law, things like that. But nothing I felt compelled to post about, until I saw this part:

The three men, according to the affidavit, watched a pornographic video on a computer and took turns ejaculating on the student's face and body. When the woman woke up, she thought she had drooled on herself, the affivadit says. The next day, the affidavit says, Skvirsky sent the woman an instant message that stated that they "were really drunk" and had ejaculated on her.

Ok, first of all, if it's on your face AND body, just what kind of drooling problem do you have, anyway? And if you can't tell your saliva from semen, then there is either something wrong with you, or something wrong with those guys. Whichever it is, someone needs to go see a doctor. But finally, of course, I have to wonder, if you got drunk and did something so incredibly stupid, then you somehow get away with it, why do you confess to it the next day? If the victim can somehow think she drooled on herself, just leave it at that, she's better off without knowing this happened to her. This is the kind of thing you should be ashamed of for the rest of your life, never tell anyone about, and never again speak to the other two guys who know what you did.

Because the whole point of doing something like that is to humiliate the victim. If she doesn't realize what's happened, there can be so joy at her dismay.

Apparently so, but then it kind of throws the "I was drunk and didn't know what I was doing" excuse out the window.

You're not actually expecting these people to be intellectually consistent, are you? ;-)

Actually, I just expect people not to go ejaculating on other people without permission in the first place. Call me old fashioned that way.
