a situation we've seen compared to rape in numerous other episodes.
Yeah, the "mind rape" again. It's an absolutely inept analogy.

They were looking for information, they were not attempting to sexually dominate him.
It is not an "absolutely inept analogy" at all. It is still "absolutely" an invasion, whether there is a sexual element or not. There's a reason Bashir had to procure highly illegal devices to pull it off in the first place.
In a universe where telepaths exists, reading someone's mind isn't an invasion.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
