Please don't masturbate to Saturn. It's already got a ring on it.
That's no moon
Now I feel like a pervert for looking at Saturn through my telescope a couple nights ago
Completely unrelated, and I know this is probably going to start a flame war. But I got into an interesting debate with some friends and they're all likeminded in opinions, so I'm looking for people with deferring opinions. For the sake of staying neutral I will not state my opinion in the matter. But the question is, if a trans person does not properly identify their anatomical sex prior to consensual sex with a partner, can the partner claim some type of sexual assault? The argument for is that their consent is not valid due to the "deception" by the trans person (consider a person who is blindfolded and the partner swapped with someone else, though willing to engage in sex they did not consent to sex with that other person). The argument against is obviously privacy concerns for the trans person as well as the precedent for retaliatory lawsuits this could create. So FunnyPics Community. Thoughts/Opinions?
@Totrollornottotroll, no, they cannot. They have reason to be upset, and ample reason to leave that person and/or end the relationship, but it is not sexual assault.
That is actually the largest stressor (socially) in a trans person's life. The idea that if the truth comes out it can ruin their life is a scary one that isn't an unreasonable fear. The situation you describe (which can kind of boil down to "surprise! I have a penis"), has in the past very frequently ended in homicide.
It comes from a trans person wanting to be treated like the gender they are on the inside, and even post SRS, they can be left feeling like an imposter by people who treat them that way when informed of the birth gender.
It's a problem without an easy solution. Trust is important, but it needs to be earned.
@Totrollornottotroll, besides, if you do fully clothed anal with a woman only to find out that it was a drunk man in drag the whole time, you have no legal standing to press charges then, either.
@I Are Lebo, so this came up after reading about something like this happening in the U.K. The trans person was convicted because the woman believed the trans person was a man. Turns out all of their sexual encounters were a bit grey (50 shades reference) and she was blindfolded during their acts. After multiple encounters she finally took off the blindfold to find out it was a genetically female person using a fake prosthetic.
@Totrollornottotroll, that's an extreme case. That's more like fraud than actual sexual assault.
