Dangerous Instrumentalities

Ladies, Gentleman, Transgender People, and Those Who Choose Not to Self Identify,

Gretchen Weiner proudly presents the studying-for-exams-only-by-reading-hornbooks quote of the day, courtesy of the man of the semester, Joshua Dressler:

"A male physician is guilty of rape if he obtains consent to 'insert an instrument' in his patient's vagina while she is under anaesthesia, if the 'instrument' used is his penis."

Apparently this came from a real case, although one that happened in 1883. Not for nothing, but I have heard that the medical profession isn't as warm and friendly as they used to be . . . .

This is Gretchen Weiner, signing out. Remember: my hair is so big because it's full of secrets!
