British MP: Sex with Sleeping Women Isn't Rape
British MP George Galloway has never been far from controversy: in fact, controversy seems to be his favorite means of drawing attention to himself. However, his recent comments about what does and doesn't constitute the rape of a woman, may bring him a bit more attention that even he cares to experience.
During a recent guest spot on a British radio program, Galloway revealed his belief that a woman who has sex with a man after a night out, really has no grounds to complain if he takes sex from her again the next morning: with or without her consent.
Using WikiLeaks mastermind Julian Assange as an example, Galloway said: "Let's take woman A. Woman A met Julian Assange, invited him back to her apartment, gave him dinner, went to bed with him, had consensual sex with him. Claims that she awoke to him having sex with her again. This is something which can happen, you know. I mean not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion."
Perhaps this was the defense Assange has been waiting for, but it's certainly not the kind of attention Galloway's fledgling Respect party in Bradford West was looking for.
In fact, many now believe Galloway's past anti-U.S. and pro-Palestinian rants have been eclipsed by this anti-feminine rhetoric.
