Yeah, I just tried to type two comments but ended up looking like that.

I need the Taiwanese animators on this one: STAT!

Yeah, I just read the articles and stared at the comment box for at least a full minute.

Wow. Just…wow.

I’m looking forward to the MythBusters re-creation of this particular event.

That’s my reaction to this as well.

At least it’s a welcome change from “she’s a lying slut”, which is the usual go-to in rape cases.

Yeah, no, still shaking my head.

Can I volunteer?

We tested condoms at the FDA. Alas I was not part of that project.

I was hoping after the initial reading the ‘…wat…’ reaction would go away and allow me coherent thought, but I still can’t… even…

That’s… like some kind of halfassed excuse a teenager would make if their parents caught them or something.

Just… Wat?

“he tripped and accidentally penetrated her”

It’s this scenario covered in Leviticus?

I read part of the first paragraph, but then there was an autoplay video ad, so I clicked away.

The villagers of London are supposed to stone her to death, and the guy gets to keep all her father’s sheep as compensation.

I had this problem all the time in college, except the rape part.
