A type of rape that is considered to be unlawful in a court of law. Not all "rapes" are unlawful, for instance between spouses, between adults who consented at the time of the sexual activity in question and later recanted, or between consenting adults who were mutually engaged in role-playing.
"If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.” -- Rep. Todd Akin
