This is rape culture.

When a major newspaper conflates rape with sex, asking "why someone who has seemingly easy access to sex resorts to drugging."

Emphasis mine, because holy fucking shit, what even is this bullshit assumption that it is a normal thing for men to rape someone in order to be sexually satisfied.

RAPE.
IS.
NOT.
SEX.

The idea that sexual celibacy is "a reason" to drug partners - that normal folks who don't have consent from the people they want to sleep with will find it fucking reasonable to drug and rape those people - is fucking toxic and it needs to fucking stop.
