Sex without consent IS rape. Doesn't matter if you are drunk or helpless by your own actions or just helpless and unable to resist.
What if a rock fell on your head, you passed out, and someone seized the opportunity to have sex with you. Is that rape? YES!
What if you had a seizure and someone decided that'd be a great time to have sex with you? Is that rape? YES!
What if you were paralyzed and could not speak? Just because you didn't say "no", is it rape when someone forces themself on you? YES!
What if you are a child...to take it to extremes, what if you are a child, someone plies you with alcohol and has sex with you? Is it rape. OF COURSE!
Sex without mutual consent is rape. I can't imagine believing there are degrees of this crime. You either take advantage sexually or you don't.
