These Swedish girls...

I guess that's why your mother warned you against going alone to bars. In a controversial trial involving three men charged with rape for having taken advantage of a drunk woman, Sweden's Supreme Court ruled that "the mere fact that a person's judgement is impaired due to alcohol or drugs is not enough to conclude that a person may have been helpless" and found that "because she was able to respond when spoken to and was able to move about", she was "therefore not so drunk that she could not say no" to the men's advances.
