    Implied consent in marriage

    The question before you is, is there an implied consent to sex when a couple enters into marriage. This is intended to be in both directions, so anyone who only takes it in the direct of the woman is trolling, especially since this question also applies to same sex marriages. Now with this...

    Is fraud sufficient for rape?

    Based upon a discussion on different forum: Is the use of fraud to obtain sex a sufficient basis for the crime of rape? Now with this, there is no claim that the use of fraud to obtain sex is not wrong, nor that it is not worthy of being a crime. The question at hand is whether or not it falls...

    Biological sex is determined by....

    So may times in the debates people are putting forth what they claim is what determines what a male or female is, per the factors above. There really is no agreement here, despite claims to the contrary. I want to find out what the actual spread is. Please keep in mind, that this is not a poll...

    What is the woman's real right?

    What is the woman's actual right when it comes to pregnancy and her body? Does she actually have a right to an abortion, or is it that an abortion is currently the only method that will satisfy her actual right? One of the main argument in support of abortion is the woman's right of bodily...

    Who to prosecute?

    Thought experiment: Given the premise that a person cannot provide informed consent when drunk, and thus having sex with a drunk person constitutes rape: A man and a woman meet at a bar, and both get drunk. They agree to have sex while they are still drunk. Both wake up not remembering the...

    Cultural Appropriation

    What exactly is cultural appropriation? How does it differ from cultural absorption? Is there any culture that has not engaged in either of the two? Does the culture itself get to deny something as cultural appropriation? These questions have come up many times, and I don't recall if I have...

    Trademark law and common usage

    So a post in another section about Pop Tarts led me to an article on popular brands that have become common generic words. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/24/smarter-living/how-a-brand-name-becomes-generic.html For those not reading the article, did you know that escalator, trampoline and...

    Who would you support?

    I have often said that if you are voting for or against a person simply because there is an R or D next to their name, you are an idiot. I always vote people not party. And being rather libertarian (but not always agreeing with the LP) the following question really won't apply to me, as it will...

    Viability point

    SO this will be mostly for the pro-choice side, although I am putting some choices for the pro-life because you know that they will chime in regardless. If you are prochoice, do you feel that abortion should be available on demand at any point, or only before the viability point of development...

    Math as a universal language.

    I ran across this recently. So first I am going to ask that if you want to debate any of the other points, start your own thread for that. I want to center on the "math is the universal language." I'm going to disagree that math is a universal language. When sticking to single operands. This...

    Restroom use: how would you do it?

    I wanted to focus in on this more than what some of the other threads are doing. I am placing this in Law and Order since we are going to be discussing what the law should be as the main focus, although no doubt there will be much about sexuality in it as well. So Mods, move if you see fit...

    Necro threads

    So I just saw where a thread got necro'ed and then shut down. Is there an actual rule somewhere about how long it needs to be since the last post before a thread would be considered necro'ed?

    Alan Dean Foster vs Disney

    https://nypost.com/2020/11/20/star-wars-writer-alan-dean-foster-says-disney-owes-him-royalties/ This is just one of the articles, but I am not finding much variety among them. What I want to know is what are the various rules and laws governing copyrights, licensing, and royalties? I would...

    Sovereignty of a deity

    I decided to post this here instead of possibly creating a thread jack. Now while I do not follow the mind set of a lot of the uber Christians here, being a Christians myself, this argument strikes me as an incorrect one, maybe even a fallacy, although I can't think of which one at the moment...

    Why is this still an issue?

    I saw the above on FB, and I have to wonder how such laws are still in effect given RvW. The ruling in RvW did not limit itself to abortion (and hence why this is not in the abortion section), but stated that all medical decisions were between a person and their doctor. Now I understand that...

    reply location

    I know I saw something related before, but for the life of me I can't find it now. Is placing the reply at the bottom of the page an option or a hard feature? While I will get what the poster said as a quote in my reply, I don't see what they quoted. And sometimes that helps to remember the...

    A different take on transgenderism (book spoiler alert)

    If you find the title misleading, I apologize. However, I can't think of a better way to put it. I have recently discovered the book I Will Fear No Evil by Robert A. Heinlein. Spoiler Alert, but it is essential to the topic that I wish to bring up. Also keep in mind that I have not finished the...
