Though I won’t argue that there are girls who cry wolf, as there are people who cry wolf on other types of heinous crimes, I will say that the main reason why they do so is partially because of slut shaming! Slut shaming makes girls feel as if it’s not alright for them to have drunken sex; also girls who were raped while drunk also get slut shamed. It’s a very delicate situation that one has to be careful with.

Yeah you’re definitely right — it’s delicate and there are so many shades of grey. I’m definitely bias on the issue because I have a guy friend who went through hell after being drunk and hooking up with this girl we knew pretty well who was also drunk at the time, then tried to call rape because she had a boyfriend. I also used to hang around with this girl who sort of decided she was raped after having drunken sex that she seemed okay with until days later when she just kept talking about how she shouldn’t have done it. Now, maybe she was raped and was convincing herself she was okay with it at first, but it goes the other way too and I could never tell with her because she was sort of all over the place in general. At school we’re told over and over not to have any sex but sober sex and I definitely think that’s important for college kids to live by.
