Some things are too shameful for even Massachusetts, it seems

Well, it took a bit of heat from the press and the people (I wish I could claim a smidgen of the credit, but realistically I can’t), but a couple of Massachusetts legislators are working on fixing the law covering rape in the Bay State. As I noted yesterday, current law requires that force be an element to constitute rape, and sometimes that doesn’t quite happen.

I’m still a little concerned, though, as this is still Massachusetts, and they could end up with some insanely draconian law that would criminalize such things as “of course I’m not married” and “I’ll respect you in the morning” and other such typical actions in the war of the sexes or end up with both (or more) parties having to get notarized statements before adjourning to the boudoir, but this looks like a step in the right direction.
