@ap00rv Having read many laws I have come to the conclusion that defining laws is an extremely complex exercise.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Vasant Vihar, New Delhi

@ap00rv That’s naive, I am sorry. Read the exact law, and do this exercise and it would make no sense. Try it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Ramakrishna Puram, New Delhi

@ap00rv So, as for your question, this is cruelty & not rape. But my opinion is that the law should change to acknowledge this act as rape.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Moti Bagh, New Delhi

@ap00rv I acknowledge that the law is skewed and want a gender parity. But I don’t have a better suggestion for how the law can be changed.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Subroto Park, New Delhi

@ap00rv Blind eye? Did I ever defend the woman/accuse the man? Also, I borrow my definitions from the law (instead of concocting my own).

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Subroto Park, New Delhi

@ap00rv Also, there is a difference between saying gay sex is acceptable vs the law is unacceptable. 1st one doesn’t stand, 2nd one does.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi

@ap00rv Arre baba look at the context. You’re saying it’s rape and not cruelty. Whereas the article mentions the legal accusation here.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from New Delhi, Delhi

@ap00rv If the allegations are true, I’m with you on principle. The laws have to change first, and if they do it could lead to high abuse.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi

@ap00rv Well then that’s exactly what the wife has done here. Don’t think the allegation “forced onto him” is use of physical force.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Palam, New Delhi

@ap00rv There you go, you can at best accuse the wife of cruelty there. So don’t force your definition of rape in this context.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Palam, New Delhi

@ap00rv Undoubtedly it is some form of cruelty or forceful consensus. Also, is there any legal definition for rape (of men)? @sorcerical

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ap00rv from Mahavir Enclave, New Delhi

@ap00rv Undoubtedly it is some form of cruelty or forceful consensus. Also, is there any legal definition of rape (for guys)? @sorcerical
