BigLundi video response "Addendum to Drunk Sex and Rape. "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddqSfN-hQG0
IMPORTANT NOTE :Mike Booth (somegreybloke) has, since recording and uploading this, accepted the points I have made and retracted his position (makes me wonder whether I would be a big enough person to accept I was wrong quite so quickly, kudos to Mike) but the issues and arguments here are still very relevant and so I am setting this to release.
This video follows some comments on Mike Booths blog http://somegreybloke.blogspot.co.uk/
Specifically this entry http://somegreybloke.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/wha-can-we-learn-from-thunderf00t-about.html and amounts to my videographic embellishment of some comments I made there.
This video is also a response to Big Lundi's video "Is Drunk Sex Rape?"
I also make mention (at 2:10) of a scene from a comedy which, I am led to believe, Rebecca Watson flagged as potentially showing behaviour we ought to regard as rape which was the catalyst for her 'drunk sex = rape' tweet a year ago. If anyone can confirm whether that link is genuine or not I'd be grateful. Anyway, here is the scene: rape or not rape (*also see note below)?

Lastly, in case you need getting back up to speed on this whole shitstorm:
Rebecca Watson's video on Thunderf00t (I thought her wasp joke was pretty funny, tbh)

*On the video (mentioned at 2:10) I framed my description of the video 'rape' clip deliberately in a gender neutral way. I think if we consider a drunken man turning up at a female friends residence, giving a drunken rant in the doorway, then entering uninvited, grabbing her by the hand, and marching her to the bedroom instructing her that he was going to have sex with her, most reasonable people would have concerns with his behaviour, not hers.
Now, whilst I DO think it is understandable that we may view the situation slightly differently when the situation is reversed (there is less of a physical threat, generally speaking, from a drunken woman than a drunken man, after all), that anyone should now think that drunkenness and issues of capacity should be the focus (instead of the overbearing sexually entitled behaviour) I find breathtaking and depressing in equal measure.
..... or we could just stop making sociological discourse on comedy sketches?
