I'm totally stealing this topic from PZ Myers and his blog post regarding a bill
in the Bahamas that would outlaw marital rape. Of course the religious folks are all besides themselves about it, equating women to property and likening it to stealing one's own property, which would not be stealing and therefore charges of theft are ludicrous.
It's a no brainer for me, but I do wonder how the law would be written and my worry is this: women can be very, very mean and vindictive. A husband would have a hard time proving that he didn't
rape his wife in some cases. Basically, I believe that a man can rape his wife and that it should be illegal but I worry that these laws could easily be abused.
What say you all?
