   Hey cool, I like the way the glass changes color in this drink you bought me. My drinks never do that normally, I wonder how it works?

I think some people will get over confident and won't realize that these cups can't possibly detect all the nasty stuff out there. But I suppose anyone who is cautious enough to use one of these is already smart enough to figure that out.

I'm thinking it's a bit overblown. The guy looking to sell his rape cups estimates this happens a million times a year without providing any evidence. I know plenty of people that swear up and down they were drugged, but they were just drunk off their ass. Yes, anecdote.

They then said this:
"Abramson estimates that more than a million people every year are drugged and sexually assaulted"

I'm not sure what to say to that as its either an outrageous number even fro someone who has attended waay to many sexual assault seminars (white athlete during college, they figure that means I'm going to rape someone), or someone is just pulling numbers out of his ass.

Young, attractive people often spend time at these places called "clubs" which, with their dress codes, hygiene standards, and cover charges, are out of reach for most of the basement-dwelling and acne-encrusted obese like your typical Farker.

For some reason I don't see this being as much of an issue at your standard dive bar with shiatty can beer.

It's alot more prevalent than alot of people realize. As a normal guy, I was shocked once I became aware of it. I know of a couple female friends who have had it happen, and those are just the ones that said it in random conversation. An Ex of mind actually had it happen when we were out together. She had one drink (bought by a random guy, but somebody who was in our "large" circle of friends, maybe an aquantance) and started stumbling around, took her home thinking she was sick, and started getting irate. I looked it up the next morning and found out that she literally went through all of the symptoms, like clockwork or the stages of depression. If I polled more of my friends, I am sure I would hear more stories like this. Think of all the sick minded guys out there, the pscyhopaths and the PUA's. Guy's go to disgusting extremes to get girls.

I've found that oftentimes when somebody claims to have been drugged they weren't and that people who were don't really like to talk about it much. I hate to say it but a lot of really stupid women have used it to excuse the fact that they drank too goddamned much.

I suppose this could protect the alleged rapists too. How many guys have been arrested on false rape claims cause some chick got farked up, banged some random guy then claimed rape so her friends won't think she's a whore.

My favorite is the next day when they say "I don't remember doing that." And that doesn't pertain to rape as that isn't what I'm talking about. Nearly anything that is slightly embarrassing is assumed to be excused upon that remark. Drugging is an actual problem and I can't imagine having to fear it as I'm a) a dude and b) only drink bottled beer, drafts that don't leave my hand, and shots. But seriously, there is no way its an epidemic which 1,000,000 experience annually as stated in the article.

I read a scientific paper a few years ago that looked at the results of all the patients admitted to one particular Australian hospital who claimed to have had their drinks spiked with "date rape" drugs over the course of a year. There were 101 people admitted, and not a single case of drink spiking was confirmed. Now obviously I'm not saying it NEVER happens, but it's a hell of a lot less common than you'd think. 99% of the time, people who think their drink was spiked just drank more than they thought, blacked out and woke up in bed with some creepy asshole they don't remember going home with.

That said; taking advantage of a drunk girl is morally just as reprehensible as taking advantage as a drugged girl, so I'm not about to let the creepy assholes off the hook either.

It's not really a problem that widespread. It's just that we're out of real problems to tackle, or out of people willing to tackle them, so they focus on shiat like this.

The number of rophynol doses each year is tiny compared to heart disease deaths, but no one's out there playing basketball with kids when they could be in the lab fearmongering for the few shekles to be had from the paranoid people who would buy a glass like this because they saw the date rape on the TV. The selfsame people will likely then get the drug just to try their new glasses, drink it themselves while showing off their glass at their next party.

So maybe go to different clubs? The ones where you don't get frequently drugged. They're out there, believe it.

I'm really really surprised at the amount of ignorance at how many people are scoffing at the idea of women being drugged. This is the kind of ignorance that needs to be educated.

Most of us drink.
But then again most of you don't leave your parents basements.
I guess that's where it comes from.

One guy can do it to multiple women.
Especially if it's a bar tender doing it for his friends.
That one guy could be doing it every night, to multiple women. Sometimes it's the bartender you trust that's the dirt bag.

As a guy, I've been taken advantage of while drunk by girls I didn't want to have sex with; I blame myself for getting blitzed to the point where I could no longer make rational decisions.
Had I been drugged, I would not have felt as responsible for what occurred.

I was drugged at a bar once by someone I had just met. Fortunately nothing bad happened because I was with others who realized people don't normally pass out after a beer and a gin and tonic. It happens more often than you would think, especially in college, at parties, at places where you can slip away with less notice than you might at a bar. At houses and things, it's easy to drug someone, tell everyone "oh, X is drunk, I'm going to help them" and then take them to a bedroom and close the door behind you.

And the fact that there are so many people here saying "women lie about this stuff all the time in order to excuse their drunken whorishness" is exactly what enables these predators to do what they're doing. They know the social aspects of it are already in their favor-- the girl was at party, drinking alcohol, and probably dressed up for the party as well-- who are they going to believe? The football star golden boy or the drunken slut?

The odds are already stacked against her, and you can see how and why right here. The predator knows he can get away with it again and again because if the girl tells anyone, people's first assumption is that she's probably lying about it because she regrets drinking too much and sleeping with someone. They'll ask her, "Are you sure it wasn't consensual? Are you sure you want to ruin this good boy's life because you made a mistake? Are you sure you weren't just drunk? Are you sure?" Rape is a hard thing to prove, and most people are much more willing to believe the woman lied. So why bother?
