Changes To British Rape Laws

Ace submitted this link to a UK Times article outlining changes to UK rape laws. The most disturbing change is that by default any woman who is intoxicated would not be able to give consent. I think there is a big difference between forcing a person to have sex and having a few drinks with someone and then mutually deciding to have sex. In fact, the latter is quite a popular past time among both men and women! But here's a thought: if both parties are intoxicated and the woman files a rape charge, why shouldn't the man be able to as well?
