I worry this issue is not being treated seriously in court and men who murder should not get off for manslaughter just because there is an implication of consent- not enough justice is being done

These perverted, potentially dangerous men use this excuse to basically sexually assault & sexually abuse women & likely without their consent, so there needs to be consequences

This should not be a defense for taking a life, men need to be accountable for their actions.

Ridiculous to say it went wrong! Next we’ll be saying they wanted to see if he/she could land on their feet like a cat after jumping out of a window. No no… a push? It was voluntary!!

NO ONE CONSENTS TO BE KILLED!! Thus "rough sex" + "death" is always murder. Murder because he did not stop! Murder because she did not consent to die!
Any other legal response to this is complete and utter bullshit, legal misogyny against women that the law must protect...
