That's not rape

A man was convicted for rape even though he didn't commit that crime.

He'll be branded a rapist for the rest of his life and that's a long time.

When this man slept with a woman, he promised to wear a condom but he did not.

He didn't deserve a rape conviction but that's what he got.

Rape is making a person have sex by force.

Not by neglecting to wear a condom during intercourse.

I'll be the first to admit that what that man did was wrong.

And he probably does deserve his jail sentence that is long.

But he shouldn't be called a rapist; that's not fair.

Such injustices might not happen if people were more aware.
