Rape as defined WA State Law 

Nowhere is gender indicated in these laws!!!

pastedGraphic.pnghttps://statelaws.findlaw.com/washington-law/washington-rape-and-se...

In Washington, rape is defined as forcible sexual intercourse without the other person's consent. The force used can be physical or emotional (threat, intimidation, pressure, coercion). The law recognizes three different degrees of rape (First, Second and Third) involving forced sexual intercourse

Chris B. Great news that Luca has surgery scheduled. September isn't very far away. The Spring was far too short and Summer is racing along at breakneck speed. The path you walked looks lovely and refreshing.
