Some states, e.g. "pregnant", are all-or-none, no intermediates. But sexual abuse has shades of grey, from violent buggery to mild touching.

What would u call consensual sex plus breakfast followed by hanging out consensually later, then split-up + rape allegation?

from a physical standpoint.. Hard to measure mental/emotional affect? Different from 1 victim to the next, still a violation

Why have you decided to start opining on the minefield that is sexual abuse? What's the goal here?

'Mild touching' as you quaintly call it, still leaves victims traumatised for many years. Come on man, educate yourself.

agreed. trouble is a lot of people can't deal with grey - they only see black or white (not unlike newspaper headlines)

Sexual assault is sexual assault, period. There's no need to categorize it. You just piss off/hurt survivors.

what do you call it when the plaintiff withdraws the rape charges but the state wishes to pursue them? Conspiracy.

My old headmaster served 3 years for "inappropriate touching" but the local papers called him a "rapist".

Substantively probably true, but not sure "mild" is a good word to use in this context - somewhat inflammatory!

But the trauma sufferedby thevictim doesn't necessarily correlate with the 'shade' of abuse.Pls dnt put a scale on suffering

research suggests that long term emotional abuse (of whatever hue) is more damaging than sporadic physical or sexual abuse

"Mild touching" might be better phrased as "Offensive touching".
