Brian Greene, Asshole of the Day for February 4, 2015

How long will it take before people understand that consent is required to have sex and that it is not enough that “they didn’t say no”? And to that end, unconscious people can never, ever consent. A few months back it was CeeLo who didn’t get this, and now it’s a Utah state legislator.

Rep. Brian Greene is trying keep a law in Utah from defining sex with an unconscious person as being rape:

If an individual has sex with their wife while she is unconscious … a prosecutor could then charge that spouse with rape, theoretically,“ said Rep. Brian Greene, R-Pleasant Grove. "That makes sense in a first date scenario, but to me, not where people have a history of years of sexual activity.”

Green later made clear that while he did not support having sex with unconscious people, he questions whether sex with an unconscious person was “rape in every instance — dependent only upon the actor’s knowledge that the individual is unconscious. That’s the question. That’s what I struggle with.”

Frankly I don’t even know how it matters whether the rapist is aware of whether the person is unconscious– if the person you’re having sex with is unconscious and you can’t be bothered to notice, then that’s rape too in my book.

But back to his main assertion that in a marriage that it could be OK to have sex with an unconscious person and therefore not be rape. How could it possibly matter? So what if you’re married? It’s not like the marriage vows include a line about allowing sex while unconscious. Getting married doesn’t mean a lifetime of rape.

But Rep. Greene, I guess he doesn’t care about wives consenting to sex. He’s more worried that some husband might get charged with rape for forcing himself on an unconscious wife. And for that, he is the Asshole of the Day.


It is Brian Greene’s first time as Asshole of the Day, but one of many for saying horrible things about rape.
