    ummm...when you put you hands on a woman and force your genitals in her mouth that is called rape.

    Unless the official definition has changed apparently not. I'm certainly not saying it's ok but unless they've changed the law he's technically not being accused of rape.

    had to google it but apparently that's correct in Texas, they define rape and sexual assault to be the same thing.

    This came up in the Harvey Weinstein case and believe it or not LOTS of states still don't define it as rape, but it looks like Texas does so he would in fact be charged with Sexual assault which is the same as rape in texas.

    To clarify yes it is in Texas apparently. Had to google it to find out. Lots of states, Georgia for example it's not.

    The FBI apparently made the change years ago but many states have not adopted the FBI standard.

    So if that's true, then Watson is in serious trouble because several of the allegations include that claim

    Yeah that whole innocent until proven guilty and beyond a reasonable doubt does not matter on message boards or the media.

    But with that being said, looking at it from what is being reported it is becoming harder and harder to think that there isn't something going to the accusations.

    State laws can be absolutely mind blowing.

    I seem to recall it also coming up in the Brock Turner case at Stanford not sure though.
    Seems nuts that the FBI can change the laws, but states don't have to follow the FBI changes

    If the last year has taught us anything is that there is a great failure between Fed and States on many issues.
