Honest Interest In A Response

Over at LGM, there's a post highlighting something written by right-wing blogger Robert Stacy McCain (who defended the lynching of Emmett Till, so we know what kind of . . . "person" . . . he is).
Date rape is an apparently common campus crime that usually involves two drunk young people, one of whom has an erect penis, and the other of whom is unable to avert what the erect penis typically does.
Now my question is simple: Is this describing rape?  Is it describing bad communication between a man and a woman (she calls it rape; he says he was aroused and couldn't help himself?)?  Is McCain's claim that erect penises take over the mind and body of men a valid defense?

I ask these questions for reasons of clarification.  I really would like to know whether the two gentlemen who seem to believe there are such things as "sluts" that are identifiable by their dress and/or behavior would take the next step and insist there is more than a grain of truth in this notion that date rape is just two drunk people caught up in the moment, only one of whom seems to have regrets.
