Re: Paris + B'Elanna scene, absolute cop-out

It's true that Torres was not capable of giving consent in that state but that's not why the writers had Paris refuse.

The writers had Paris refuse because it's a TV show and thus must be held to our double standards where we pretend to be forward thinking and progressive while we're actually super-conservative and want all relationships to be 1950s-idyllic. Two people must not make love without being deeply in love and signing the appropriate liability waivers.
