This is an excellent summation. And I think it pretty much nails what we've been debating here. Rape culture normalizes rape into something that isn't rape. Rape is bad, we all "know" that, so it has to be refined in order to be accepted. Otherwise decent people who commit rape are going to use these standards to protect themselves. It's a massive, society-sized case of cognitive dissonance. 

That, and naturally if someone isn't 'mentally challenged or irrational' clearly whatever they do isn't rape. Only really creepy fuckheads rape other people. Star swimmers aren't rapists, everyone knows that. Football players aren't rapists, because they can get pussy any time they want.
