    This one sounds, if you'll pardon the expression, like a no-brainer. Generally, the law defines rape as "penetration, however slight," and there's no reason to go any further than that just because the sex of the victim is different. Gotta love FL's Supreme Ct.; this one's right up - or is it down? - there with "prowling by auto."

    Boy, towleroad screwed up with that title for the article.

    Gay sex does not automatically = anal intercourse.

    This is pretty stupid and the fact that that case mentioned got acquitted for those reasons is dumb... no wonder people have no faith in those in charge of justice of the law.

    As an ethical matter, disclosure is important, but failure to disclose certainly shouldn't be a felony. Bravo to the assistant public defender(!) for hoisting Florida's sexual conservatism on its own petard, if he succeeds. If what he says about Florida's legal precedent is true, he may have a chance. The case sure exposes Florida's archaic sex codes, though.
