This is a new one for me. Since when is a shove with a baton an incident of "rape"? When I first saw this report I had visions of evil gay French police pulling down citizen's trousers and sexually assaulting him by the usual definition of "rape".
What is this new definition? Is it not plain assault? Is it not "police brutality"? How did "rape" get in on the act? Why are hordes of enraged lefties going ballistic over this? And why are they referring to it as "rape"? If any sort of prodding with any sort of object is going to be defined this way, how are genuine rape cases to be assessed?
