The comments on r/sex give me hope that the world hasn't gone completely mad- most of them rightfully chewed him out. The comments on r/asktransgender confirm that it's mostly males, because playing fast and loose with consent is such male behavior.

And the sad thing is the men on /r/sex talking about the importance of consent are mostly just repulsed at the thought of hooking up with a TIM. If the victim were a woman, I bet there'd be a lot more justification for his actions.

I actually think their would have been more pushback if it was a woman who was assaulted. If instead, for example, some man wrote that he convinced a drunk girl he was her boyfriend in a dark bar and did something sexual with her, people would rightfully calling it out for what it was: sexual assault. I think I only saw one person come out and say this was sexual assault.
