Target: Mary Fallin, Governor of Oklahoma
Goal: Change legislation that decriminalizes oral sex with an unconscious intoxicated person.
Oral sex with an unconscious intoxicated person is not considered rape in the eyes of the law, states an Oklahoma statute. This shocking ruling emerged after charges of unwanted oral sodomy were dismissed because the victim had been drinking. Criminalize oral rape and put an end to victim blaming.
A 16-year-old girl was brought to the hospital unconscious and with indications of forced oral sex. She claimed to not have any memories of the night. Her blood alcohol level tested above .34, indicating excessive drinking. The court dismissed the case, claiming that Oklahoma law does not criminalize oral rape in cases of alcohol intoxication.
A separate statue criminalizes forced intercourse in an intoxicated person but oral sex is not covered, leaving a frightening legal loophole. Sign below and demand that legislators reevaluate this outrageous statute.
Dear Governor Fallin,
Oklahoma law states that forced oral sodomy is not a crime when the victim is intoxicated. This archaic statute promotes victim blaming and leaves a frightening legal loophole. We demand that you criminalize oral rape of an unconscious intoxicated person.
By law, a person cannot consent to intercourse in a state of unconsciousness. However, oral rape is not a crime if the victim is unconscious due to alcohol intoxication. This loophole not only leaves the public vulnerable but also sets a dangerous precedent regarding the definition of rape.
Absence of consent to any sex act is rape. Blaming a rape victim for his or her own assault is unacceptable. We demand that you change this dangerous statute immediately.
