It could soon be a crime to take off a condom during sex.Likw for real for real, the government needs to get out of Americans bedrooms, it used to be the uber Christians, now the uber woke fanatics are at it.

No, rape has been illegal since likw forever.

"Golden State legislators moved closer to making California the first to outlaw the act of removing a condom without permission during sex."

This is getting to chappelle show levels of wierd sex contracts.

Without permission and against ones will are different.

I know times Ive started with one on the bed and by the time I'm in the hallway closet Ive said fuck it I want it raw dog.No malicious intent.

Tricking someone into pregnancy or an std in any form should be illegal.

But should we make it illegal to not get permission to switch positions? Like who the fuck does that?

you only face lawsuit by the woman, not jail so it only applies when the woman has a problem with it, suggesting against their will

although I imagine women would always want to know if you are removing it... especially Texans

TW, When being the operative word.

I mean should they agree ahead of time that no matter what the condom stays on? Or situation depending?

This all sounds absurd.

Is it still a crime if she takes off the condom?

Or how about I had a girl pleading for me to cum inside her, only to panic afterwards realizing she skipped her pill, so I bought her the morning after pill, no big deal.

And let's be frank on what the real world use will be, angry exes and regretfull morning afters.

And TW hit the nail on the head, assuming rightfully this will only be against men.

Again, different positions increase the likelihood of pregnancy, so should all positions be agreed upon ahead of time? You realize how silly that sounds, yes?

"Is it still a crime if she takes off the condom? "

no... she's the only one that can sue so she's the one who has to be unhappy

& a woman can already sue for child support if she has a baby so the only 'danger' of this law is a woman faking you out to try to get pregnant, have an abortion & try to screw you on the emotional damages... seems unlikely to be a big draw... (& obviously they also have to win the lawsuit to work)

from what i understand, women don't tend to enjoy their visits to abortion clinics... seems like there would be better ways to try to scam money out there

Right then don’t, but positions (which you brought up) is not normally something you decide before hand unlike the use if protection. So if before fucking you have agreed to use protection and you remove that protection without informing the other person, you have changed the agreed uppbg conditions to engage in the activity to begin with.

This is really really stupid and I think you know that, but have decided to keep digging.

This government overreach is not an argument, this is a clarification of the law, you can’t remove the protection without informing the other person. You should derive from that, laws that will protect a man from being snared by a woman who lies about being on the pill or inseminating herself with the contents of a condom. Highly problematic things that should be against the law if it isn’t already. You think that would be government interfering with your sex life?

You have two choices, this futile fight against the zeitgeist or working towards securing equality for yourself and your brothers.

Nimatzo, I really and truly think this insane.

Intentionally misleading someone about contraception should be a crime.Thats not what this is. This is a push by california to try and punish men and literally makes sex contracts a thing.

This is way more an invasion into private lives than a vaccine or a mask, which Im fine with.

How often does "stealthing" happen? I cant imagine too many men want to sneakily impregnate chicks, like it happens but what? 3 times a year? so now we need extra controls over how we conduct our sex lives? That's crazy.

Honestly in Cali, Id rather just not use condoms at all. The last thing is stressing over if I decide to pull the condom off, which in the past I have done, lets face it, they don't feel as good.

Now in my experience I was generally the one who would insist on wearing them when I deemed it necessary.

I get that IF someone actually planned and intended malicious intent, that's a horrible thing and honestly it probably happens in the reverse WAY more with women claiming they are on the pill or whatever and are not to trap a man with a kid, more common with celebrities and the wealthy Is imagine.

If the other person has already agreed to unprotected sex, it is a complete non starter, a non issue all together.

You are too wrapped up in the whose who of policy making and not what is being said. It is the exact same thing is lying about being on the pill. It is very strange you don’t see this and keep making even worse arguments. Like how often this happens, well often enough that you do it yourself and completely irrelevant. You don’t get to decide on your own that you want to have protected sex suddenly without informing the other party and getting the ok. Common sense, I thought, but apparently it needs to be legislated.

Have I been there myself not digging the condome sensation, yes. One time I got the ok, another time I didn’t. The end.

And there are crazy femnazis who intentionally have abortions if it's a male, they actually have online communities.

If a man gets charged to pay child support can he claim she said she was on the pill and then sue her for harassment?

You brought of frequency, as some how relevant for something in the law being clarified. I don't know how frequent or infrequent it is, nor do I think it is relevant. I didn't need a law to tell me that this was a fucked up behavior to engage in, in the first place.

"I was saying how often does someone sneakily try to get a chick prego?"

You are adding intention, I don't have to intend to kill you for my actions to be illegal. You intentionally remove the condom and intentionally do not seek consent for this significant change of the initial agreement. And clearly you do not understand that it _is_ a significant change and this is why you compared it to "different sex positions". This is why I gave you the straightest analogous thing, lying about the pill. You understand why that is problematic, you should understand why this is problematic.

And I do understand where I'm coming from, I dont want the government regulating how I have sex.

Plus this will what, help 3 women and be used nefariously many more times, like protections from abuse laws which like 80%+ are made up.

If she decides to keep the stealth Child, he has to pay child support anyway or stay with her. If she aborts it he should pay his share, period.

"government regulating how I have sex."

You can have whatever kind of sex you want, as long as you find someone who is willing. In this case they are regulating what you can do to another person without their consent. It isn't your personal business, even the way you keep talking about this, "how I have sex", seems to disregard the fact that you are not fucking blow up dolls, but another human being. This "my sex life" is coming of as narcissisticly out of touch with common human decency.

We are not talking about some asinine idea to write a contract detailing every aspect of the act, but the removal of the agreed upon protection towards STDs and pregnancy. It's like I sell you a car and then when you drive away, you notice the breaks do not work. Oh yea I took away the breaks after you signed the deal.

The problem is in case they getn
pregos or a disease, right?

I mean that is the supposed reason for this.The simple fix is that if you give someone an STD or or force them to either have an abortion or give birth you should be financially responsible, period.

You claim this isnt asking for a formal sex contract, but it is, its exactly that.

Certain states in the US have deer populations that have something called CWD (chronic wasting disease) where the deer grow scrawny and snot alot.

So its now illegal to hunt with deer tribes, presumably as the CWD can spread through bodily fluids.

"So after you slipped out you intentionally slipped it off and just spit on it?"

It doesnt matter if the condom fell off or was taken off, it happened and the consequences of pregnancy or disease should be handled. Accordingly regardless.

If she isnt pregnant or diseased, then there is no problem.

Oh seb..."

In my defense that was 5 months ago and while I don't think BTC is going anywhere because boomers have a lot of fiat, I don't really care even less about BTC today, sentiments I conveyed in the original thread:

"I am not married to bitcoin, but I am married to my vision for the future and that future needs something like Bitcoin or Monero or Dogecoin. "

This I can not defend though, that I mentioned Doge and Monero. These are arguably the worst instantiations. Shame on me. However this was ages ago in crypto years and I know better now, in context while the examples are poor, I am talking about the principle ideas and technology.

You NEVER ackowledge instead double down:

"So, your stunning argument for the success of crypto ecosystem is how a firm creates an interface that requires you to give over your crypto coins to them, and have a conventional debit card linked to an amount of fiat currency based on a notional unregulated debt they owe to you denominated in cryptocoins."


Which I have addressed again in this thread. I don't give a shit to present any "stunning" argument about crypto to you or anyone. *I* believe in it. And even this response oozes the inability to look beyond the current instantiations.

"Obviously this law"

But I was not responding to this specific law, but your words about not wanting the government to judge you. In this abstract form, that is advocating for lawlessness. It is the government (technically the judiciary) job to judge people according to laws.

In addition I said, your bedroom or wherever you choose to have sex is not a sovereign nation and the people you have sex with have rights and their integrity is protected by laws. If you violate them, you can rightly be judged. These are the pillars of all civilizations and certainly modern western countries. They can not be negotiated and have nothing to do with wokism.

None of that is going to change if men don't secure their rights, that is the only way to fight the intrusion and stupid wokism.

There is a fairly straight legal line here from this law to what I am imploring you to do. Derive from it the laws to secure rights for yourself and your brothers. If it is illegal to pull off a condom without consent, which I think should be, that it is FUCKING illegal to lie about the pill or using your sperm without consent.

lawsuits only require 51% belief of ‘guilt’ (so would be much easier than rape) then jury decides the $ amount by weighing what you claim are the damages (like medical bills and what treatment the plaintiff experts testify you will need in future vs what smaller amount defense experts claim)

and if it’s like car accidents, the jury can say the person was X% responsible so must pay just X% of the damages (so not necessarily all)

Thanks, it's rare that we agree on something. This is a "Believe Women" law, designed to be another way for men to be screwed over by the legal system.

Nim

I am taking context into account. This law is in the same vein as other stuff like campus rape tribunals and MeToo witchhunts.

In theory, I don't have a problem with punishing anyone stupid enough to dump a condom without their partner's consent. In practice, I consider this to be another avenue for screwing over men in the legal system by making it easier for a jilted ex-partner to shake them down for money based on unproveable allegations.

Then the criticism is that this was put under the civilian code and not the criminal code. I would be inclined to agree. But it does not change my general advice to men, especially the younger generation. Claim your rights and protect your sperm and wallets. The sooner men understand this the better. Women as a group are not your friends, they are just as vile and opportunistic as men. Real fucking cunts some of them. Keep that in mind when you are about to put your dick into one of them.

Remember that manhood, excels in challenging and risky environments. The truth is we got complacent when we conquered the world. Naturally the woman saw their opportunity and swooped in to take our marbles. Nicely played women, you sneaky cunts! No time for whining and bitching, adapt and move on to new highs.

And FYI, this falls under the criminal code in Sweden. There is nothing specific about removing condoms, but this would be sexual harassment since you are violating the sexual integrity of another person. If an STD was transmitted it could be assault. It is unclear what happens if it results in pregnancy, I read some speculation off a legal advice site, it could possibly fall under the new definition of rape (consent based) if it results in an abortion. If not and a baby is born, then there likely is no recourse other than those that governing the legal responsibility of a child.

Swedish laws around equality are gender neutral, which is a good thing.

That is true, suing people isn't a huge thing here and the settlements are not the kind where you can retire.

On the other hand suing the state for wrongful convictions is really easy, you barely have to sue them, it follows a process. From my understanding it is a bit sketchy in the US and varies from state to state. I remember some story about this black guy that was in prison for I don't remember the details but he was a teeanger when he went in and and old man when his sentence was overturned. I remember the details being that, he could only get a really measly compensation from the state (like 20-30 years in prison) in the order hundred or thousands of dollar. Rough. There was a highly publicized case like that in Sweden, this guy was put in prison sentenced for killing an old lady. He was in prison for 8 years, the state paid him over 1 million USD in reparations after he was found not guilty in the supreme court. That was the largest such reparation that state has paid.

Nimatzo, The confusing part is the US legal system can vary drastically from county to county.

The same shit in Montgomery County PA can get you 6 years will earn you a verbal warning across the street in philladelhia.

Does Sweden have it where if you lose a civil case you have to pay for the other persons expenses? Ive heard its more common in Europe, which may help lessen the lawsuit culture.

Coincidentally Colorado city just paid a lady 3 million for breaking her arm during the arrest.

Now the cops were overzealous assholes who luaghed at tackling a 73 year old lady with dementia, but the 3 million was a reference for the size of even a small police department.

Yes, if you lose a civil law suit, you will ordinarily have to pay the legal expenses of the other party. And that applies even if you are the one being sued and lose. It's a bit nuances though, you may be ordered to only pay some of the other parties costs. But that is the general rule and it is there precisely to disincentives frivolous lawsuits.

That heavily favors the wealthy.

Not really no. You can't get a lot of money suing people and wealth is the primary factor that favors wealth regardless. At least if the rich person tries to bully someone and loses in Sweden, they have to pay for everything.
