I feel like only the most wilfully obtuse reading of "keep the government out of the bedroom" would imply that rape within the bedroom is fine.

Only the most obtuse person would selectively edit my reply and then attempt to characterize it as me saying folks condoned rape in the bedroom. JFC.

Let's look at the entire paragraph:

There's been no lack of pundits explaining rulings from the Canadian Supreme Court on this topic. Apparently one cannot give consent to bodily harm that is more than minimal or momentary. I guess a lightly applied nipple clamp is fine but if it left marks you've crossed the line? A light smack in the face that only leaves a momentary redness is acceptable but one that blackens an eye is not? Part of the hypocrisy of this is that folks who were always about, "Keep the government out of my bedroom" are now suddenly all about defining boundaries within the bedroom. The preceding is based on consent and Jian obviously has accusers stating he did not get consent.

Are you just trying to start a fight?

Well, Jian has beaten the counts that went to trial, and as of today, has no further charges against him:
