Daphne is 21.
I will always remain confused how Simon's decision not to immediately disclose years of psychological abuse to her became equivalent to lying. He always made it clear that he couldn't have children. If he had promised Daphne the opposite or at least given her the impression that their "conjugal efforts" would lead to childbirth, then this would be a lie. Not explaining the details of not having the children is just that - not giving her all the information. Lying means giving her false information.
This insistence always feels like victim-blaming to me. A way to frame what Daphne did as "justified" because Simon "deserved it."
If anything, we don't have enough of instances of rape being actually called rape in the world. From Whoopi Goldberg declaring that statutory rape is not "rape rape" to people arguing that women can't technically rape men, to #metoo showing that systematic, institutional sexual assault was overlooked for decades because it was just part of showbusiness. I mean, the statistics alone of rape convictions are there.
To me, it's as simple as this - rape is sex without consent. Regardless of Daphne's age or rage, there was a point in that act where her sexual partner withdrew his consent - she knew he withdrew his consent - and she refused to stop.
I dunno. I try not to opine too much on this topic, because it's one of those things I don't like arguing about, you know? Discussing it makes it seem like non-consensual sex being rape is a subjective judgment based on scenarios.
