Real talk time, I sometimes look back and regret using the word "rape" here if only because I fear someone will interpret it to mean that I or my comic promotes the rhetoric that any regretted sex or sex involving mutual alcohol (or other mind altering substances) consumption is automatically rape. This is a comic that deals in and acknowledges grays and I've been adamant in never divulging what did indeed happen that night because for me to say is for me to color the past event with my interpretation and I'd rather it be up to each individual reader.

However, I also think that in terms of Adam's character, his using the word 'rape' is a way, his way, of acknowledging that he did, in some way, hurt Daniel -- an acknowledgment he initially refused to give altogether. Whether that word is the correct word for what really happened or not, well, that's up to the reader.

After all, even here, the monsignor's words are very vague: he could just as easily (and correctly) be referring to the fact that neither Adam or Daniel should be having sex in any way in general, let alone with each other. How that happened or what it entailed, I believe, should be up to you and who or what you want to believe.

Anyway, Ninety-Nine Righteous Men won for Drama in the 2016 Excellence in Webcomics Awards! Fitting, given this topic. You can also VOTE for 99RM in EIW People's Choice award, which would mean a lot to me!
