SS, would you be kind enough to translate this for the majority of us who don't understand...

And yes, in Australia, the inability to comprehend ones own actions, through mental health, intoxication, drug use, be that illegal or over the counter drugs etc is not an invitation for others to take advantage as they see fit...

Just use Google translator.

Google translate says: "It is available in other languages?"

Anyway, whatever... this wasn't and shouldn't be a dig at any particular ethnic groups.

Just a general word of caution

In case you find yourself in a moral dilemma, remember this:
"NSW law says consent is not possible while a person is substantially intoxicated."

"But your Honour, I have no experience of an intoxicated woman. There is no alcohol where I'm from, women don't go out half-dressed alone, and besides if you prod a woman and she grunts, isn't that a sign to keep going?"

Strange how you cannot give consent when substantially intoxicated but you are held legally responsible for all your actions when intoxicated.
That is how they justify the withdraw of consent after they have been granted, more commonly known as regret rape.

Not applicable to this case though.

"But your Honour, I have no experience of an intoxicated woman. There is no alcohol where I'm from, women don't go out half-dressed alone, and besides if you prod a woman and she grunts, isn't that a sign to keep going?"
This sounds like the uncovered meat defence.

You dumb enough to try this on , you deserve everything the law dishes out to you
Some people just couldn't help it. Or more likely, some people have no real understanding of the culture / situation and believe it is a free for all.

Thanks, I tried google and other translation sites, but could not copy the text in.
You're welcome.

That person must have been having a bad day, as they've been relentlessly s--- stirring in another thread.

Didn't notice it till a pattern emerged.

How is a "drunk, sleepy, disoriented" 22 year old girl fair game?
Some people come from places where 1 or more women are handed to them on a plate (arranged marriage) and men are forbidden / discouraged from personal interactions with females. After they arrive, they continue on their old ways and don't interact with the wider community. So all the info they have is from their friends and TV. And if all the info you have on women are from TV, you get some pretty weird idea about them.

Not saying this is the case here.

I don't know about anyone else here, But when I have a person in my car, they fall under my protection.
My contract is jot to just deliver them to their destination, but safely and securely.
I'm the same, my riders are my friends by default and my natural instinct is to watch out for their welfare.

However, on one instance in Greystanes back in December I had a rider who told me on arrival that her boyfriend (whose house she was being dropped at) looked smashed (as he was walking toward my car) and she said that he gets aggressive and violent when he is in this state.

I asked her if she wanted me to take her somewhere else, and she said it's too late for that.

I felt so sad to drop her and go.

It's also our duty to follow rider instructions/ orders and not take matters into our own hands.

I remember my taxi induction training in Sydney, and they were going over the issues of rape and sexual assault. There were thirty people in the class, and I was one of only two white guys there, the rest a pretty evenly balanced mix of Asian, South Asian and Middle Eastern — all men. One of the things the instructor said was, "Women here are more open with you than you may be used to in your own country — doesn't mean you can touch them."

Pity Uber doesn't give out training like this to new drivers...

Pornography is another major reason for men thinking they can do as they please with women.

It is illegal in Singapore and what do you know, their rape count is barely anything at all...

Crime is generally low in Singapore because they know how to punish people. Flogging, severe sentences for drug possession, etc.

BTW some people come from places where police will throw women in jail for not protecting their chastity (sex outside of marriage) when they report rape. There is a different planet out there.
