The court of protection has ruled that a man who cannot understand the issue of consent must be allowed to pursue sexual relationships.
Mrs Justice Roberts ruled that the man, who has autism with impaired cognition and lives in a supported residential placement, has a fundamental right to sex.
The court considers issues relating to people who might lack the mental capacity to make decisions.
A clinical psychologist submitted a report saying that the 36-year-old man, referred to as JB, represents a moderate risk of sexual offending to women, particularly to those who are vulnerable, and that JB cannot understand that a womans consent is relevant in sexual situations, nor that attempting sex without consent is likely to be a criminal offense.
However, the judge said that insisting that JB understands the issue of consent before being allowed to pursue sexual relationships would be discrimination because it would impose on him a burden which a capacitous individual may not share.

A woman who is raped by someone like him,will also have a right to protect herself to the point of killing her attacker. Then, what will the judge say?
There is a RIGHT TO SEX????
Sure sounds like another win for is-salami.
In the favor of the one individual this judge has basically removed the rights of others.
Whenever I think things are bad here, I read about another insane British court decision.
In Britain? The judge will say she should lie back and think of England rather than use force to protect herself.
In the UK, if you are autistic, and low functioning, (IE retarded.).
There seems to be a rush to create an Idiocracy. A eugenic attempt to breed more Stupid.
Brawndo. What you drink because you can't drink your car battery.
Sure, it’s there just below the right to choose your own pronouns.
Right. No Muslim can understand "consent". Besides, you would be violating his religious freedom.
I wish I knew that when I was in high school...
Two words in the English language...I forgot. I forgot armed robbery was illegal.
What happens when someone who doesn’t understand consent runs into someone who doesn’t comprehend the rules of deadly force?
So who does he have a fundamental right to have sex with?
This sounds just like caveman days.
