Danish MPs have passed a new law which makes sex without explicit consent illegal, with all parliamentary parties voting in favor of the motion. Women’s rights activists have labeled it “a great day for women.”
Sex without explicit consent has been outlawed in Denmark following the passing of a new **** law by MPs on Thursday.
It broadens the conditions under which intercourse could constitute ****. Previously, prosecutors had to demonstrate that an alleged rapist had used violence or attacked an individual who was unable to repel.
“Now it will be clear, that if both parties do no consent to sex, then it’s ****,” justice minister Nick Haekkerup said in a statement.
The law, which will come into effect on January 1, was passed with the support of all political parties in the Folketing.
Women’s rights activists rejoiced on hearing the news.
“This is a great day for women in Denmark as it consigns outdated and dangerous **** laws to the dustbin of history and helps to end pervasive stigma and endemic impunity for this crime,” said Anna Blus of Amnesty International.
The group claims Denmark is now the 12th country to recognize non-consensual sex as ****.
Sweden introduced a similar law in 2018 which saw a 75 percent rise in **** convictions.

In most sexual encounters there isn't verbal consent, most of the time it's non-verbal. Does this law mean all consent has to be verbal? If so it's stupid.
If this law just means non consensual sex is ra-pe, then they're about 40 years behind the likes of the UK & US...

"Previously, prosecutors had to demonstrate that an alleged rapist had used violence or attacked an individual who was unable to repel."

Basically extending the boundaries of what would constitute ra-pe. If one party doesn't agree, that's sufficient grounds.

Good stuff. By the way, ra-pe is censored here
Kind of like banning books. It attracts attention to what they were trying to suppress.

No idea who at MTF made this ridiculous decision. But the initial PC wave of fearing triggering and making everything so sterile that nobody might be offended has passed. Maybe there will be no second wave.
Maybe time to go back to being adults again.

I wonder if anyone has complained that they do not feel safe seeing the word r-a-p-e in print in the forum. But with dashes between the letters all the bad feelings go away and it no longer triggers. Sure!

it's not an MTF decision. Algorithm thingo regarding "non grata" words. Some argue there are trigger words and doing it this way minimises potential trauma in a psychological sense. I dunno.

That question is tricky and nuanced. The extent to which violence is used with vary. There are obviously some who are really aggressive and hurt the person physically. Others may do it by way of being physically intimidating without the same degree of violence, noting females are generally weaker. In some cases, the female may struggle but not fight back. This can be aided by way of drugs/alcohol or certain restraints.

There are also cases where a couple might do this. The man expects sex with his wife or partner, who may refuse but he has his way with her anyway. I've heard of a really awkward scenario where a woman had a serious accident and was hospital bed bound for 2 months. Her boyfriend did not see her but when he did after that period, all he wanted was sex. The woman could not really resist considering her condition but it was indecent, and the guy was a real douche. She broke up with him naturally.
