You’ve probably all heard that some no-goodnick in New Jersey has introduced a bill to make the definition of “rape” include any form of lying or subterfuge designed to get into a woman’s pants. We should all thank Troy Singleton, a Democratic Assemblyman representing Burlington, NJ.
Read the article in Slate for more information but here is the original announcement from nj.com:
Earlier this month, state Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-Burlington) introduced the bill (A3908), which would create the crime of “sexual assault by fraud,” which it defines as “an act of sexual penetration to which a person has given consent because the actor has misrepresented the purpose of the act or has represented he is someone he is not.”
Oh Dear: that’s going to seriously cut down on the number of professed movie producers and directors in this country. But let’s zero in on that idea of misrepresentation.
