So although Brooke an alcoholic was drunk she knowingly and willingly partied with Deacon and invited him to spend the night? I’m confused because that next morning Brooke expressed shock to see Deacon there. I’m also remembering the Ridge-Shauna story. Is the show now saying that Ridge willingly went upstairs with Shauna, allowed her to take off his clothes and slipped under the covers with him? Brooke learned about what happened from the bartender. I’m confused about these alcohol stories. Under what circumstances are characters in control? In real life, there many young college men serving jail time because young college coed can’t remember inviting them to the room because they all were drunk.

I agree...and I also remember the story where Caroline had taken pills (which Tom didn´t know) and then drank alcohol with Tom....she wasc crying like crazy because Ridge had left her.
She certainly was in no condition to consent to what happened then but still slept with Tom.
The next morning, when she woke up and saw what they had done, she was crying and screaming.
In my country, Tom would have problems to explain why this shouldn´t be called rape.
But in this show they told us this was a love story and they even had Caroline say later that she "wanted it too".
Not a very good message to young people at least...
(And I don´t want to start a discussion if it was rape, I am sure we had it here when it happened...just wanted to point out that the show doesn´t do alcohol and kissing/lovemaking in a pc way).

I’m very uncomfortable with every BB story involving alcohol and sex or flirting or making out. I know it happens but if they insist on breaking up Bridge and exploring Breacon, why do it this way? Everyone knows I hate Breacon, Bridge, and Brill but there’s got to be a better way. I’m sick of it all.

Deacon was always a bad boy...not only with Bridget but also with Amber or Becky or whoever he was with.
Not as criminal as Sheila or Quinn but criminal enough...not a psychopath though, just a scoundrel.

That is how I see him too. Deacon is a character that you can like but not like some of his actions. He is a scoundrel but he really loved Brooke, Amber and Bridget.

I liked the scene with Deacon, Brooke and Hope yesterday. Deacon is playful and relaxed. I have no idea why they have him pushing a broom at the restaurant. When he was first on this show, he owned a nightclub, did karate, wore a lot of leather and was a badass fringe gangster type. He was basically a loan shark with some humor. His character was similar to Chili Palmer in Get Shorty. They should get him back to that role, and he would be the lead male on this show. I could see a Steffy/Deacon hook-up if they put him back to his beginnings.

I loved that scene. Deacon just sitting and talking with Brooke and Hope was great. I don't want them to make him a badass again, though. It's time for him to grow up. And I sure don't want to see him wasted on Steffy.

What makes you think he ever truly loved Bridget? He targeted her to get back at the Forresters for destroying his relationship with Amber. He let her family listen to their wedding night behind her back. And then it took him just a few months after getting married to her to cheat on her with her own mother. Doesn't sound like love to me at all...

Brooke may be the only woman he’s ever been with who speaks to him because she had his only child. Maybe that’s why he loves her. He made other women feel creepy and ashamed. Even Brooke says she was ashamed.

I am a little confused, but Hope is not Deacon's only child.. He has a son by Becky that he snatched away from Rick and Amber. . The trust fund that came with the boy was a factor... It is sad, he spent the boys money and dumped him with Becky's parents to raise when Macy died. Who knows what happened to him after that. When Amber left YR, I think she went there to be with him, but she shortly after she came back to BB and then gave birth to Rosie. Maybe she went back home to be with the boy and raise her daughter,

Anyway, I do not believe that he really cares about his children. He has been an absent father for most of their lives and it was 100% his choice. He should have left Lil D or E with Rick and Amber, because they loved him and wanted him.

I should have said Hope is the only child he has a relationship with. CJ raised Becky’s son with Deacon. He would be older than Hope.

I think the fact that Tom was drunk too, changes it. Why would the man be the only one at fault, if both are drunk? Tom did not get her drunk, he did not know she took the pills. I think Deacon got drunk too. I am not sure. If so, he did not know Brooke was not drinking willingly, when she drank the cider. As a person who had not had alcohol in years, she would have gotten drunk much quicker from the cider. At that point, she may not have even known what she was doing when she picked up the Vodka. But still, Deacon would not have been aware that she was not doing this of her own choice. Addition to alcohol the way Brooke experienced it could be a physical allergy to alcohol. It produces a phenomenal craving. If it were this allergy, than she could not have stopped herself from drinking more, after she drank the spiked cider. They can never safely have any form of alcohol. Then there is the fact that women react to alcohol different than men. Women have less body water than man, so they absorb more alcohol into the blood than men. Both Tom and Deacon were getting drunk WITH the women.

Ridge actually did sexually molest Brooke in her bed. Brooke and Ridge had a conversation in her living room, standing up, about how he wanted her back, and she told him no, and told him to go home. She did not feel well and went up the stairs to her bedroom thinking he was leaving the house. She got undressed, took sleeping pills, got in her bed and fell asleep unknowing that Ridge was still downstairs having a hallucinational conversation with Massimo. Hallucination Massimo told Ridge to go upstairs and take what was his, and Ridge did. He went upstairs, took off his clothes, crawled into Brooke's bed, and started having sex with her. She was a little responsive in her unconscious state, so he took that as a green flag. The next day she was horrified he was in her bed, she was hysterical, she told him to leave. That is termed an acquaintance rape.

Quinn actually raped Liam by having sex repeatedly with a mentally impaired person. (no pun intended)

Unfortunately, these type of storylines go all the way to the beginning of the show. I have been watching the first few seasons. During I think 1989, when Thorne was married to the first Caroline, she had drank too much and had went to bed. Ridge was going to play a prank on her and sneaked into her bed. They ended up having sex. The next morning she was not sure of what happened and she said that she thought that he was Thorne. Later on, when she wanted to divorce Thorne and marry Ridge, she told Ridge that she knew it was him and consented. I think the writers changed it later on to keep it from looking like rape. It was always referred to as a joke or trick on the show.

Eric raped Brooke when she was drunk or drugged on cold tablets. They were separated but living in the same apartment on the self serving advice of the Quack Taylor. I could be wrong (it was many years ago) but I thought Brooke was drunk because Ridge had dumped her. Eric knew that Brooke was out of it when he jumped into bed with her and raped her. He later said he wanted her and because he wanted her he took her. She was in absolutely no condition to consent. Same as when Nick raped Brooke who was totally out of it with grief hallucinating Ridge and almost suicidal.Prick had never had sex with Brooke before and she'd never given any indication that she had ever wanted it but he decided that having sex with her was the cure to her overwhelming grief.
Eric even had to remind Brooke when she found out she was pregnant with Ridge's child that he had sex with her. I do remember Brooke and Ridge having a conversation about Eric's actions.
When Brooke was raped after Stephanie set her up to be raped, telling Andy where her spare key was and her No was not No. In other words when Brooke says No she actually means Yes. When a woman, any woman, even a prostitute says NO she means NO Hell NO. Ridge was all about finding Andy's accomplice and having them prosecuted. Andy died and when Ridge found out it was his own mother who set Brooke up to be raped he was mad at her for 2 seconds and then a few weeks later went and celebrated Christmas with them with Brooke later joining them as if nothing had happened. And Stephanie all apologetic and a week or so later calling her a slu* from the valley. What made this storyline worse is that it was a woman who set up another woman to get raped and got away with it. A woman who told a stranger where another woman's spare key was. A woman who said not to take no for an answer. And there was no justice.
To recap:
So we have Ridge raping a drunk Caroline in her husbands bed while he's downstairs and they change it to Caroline knew who it was and wanted it. Then they turned it into a romance, they got married and Caroline died.
Eric raped a drunk/drugged Brooke who was so out of it she didn't even know it happened until weeks later when she found out she was pregnant and Eric reminded her what happened. Eric was rewarded by Bridget turning out to be his.
Quinn repeatedly raped an amnesiac Liam who had not idea he was not her husband. And again no consequences for her actitons.
Ridge rapes Brooke when she is drugged. She told him she didn't want him and to go home but he snuck upstairs, stripped off and got into bed and had sex with her. At least he was remorseful then.
Nick raped Brooke at the foundry when she was drunk on grief. They'd never had sex before but Nick got turned on by a grieving Brooke and had his way with her. No consequences. Brooke got pregnant and had to endure leaving her husband and family to be with her baby's rapist father. Thankfully RJ turned out to be Ridges but I'm still sickened to this day that Brooke had to force herself to have sex while pregnant with Ridge's child with the man who raped he and gave her that sexy nightie to wear. She even had to ring Ridge to prepare herself to suck it up and Think of England with Nick.
Stephanie sets Brooke up to be raped by a stranger. Telling him where her spare key is and not to take no for an answer because she doesn't mean no.
Caroline JR gets drunk because Ridge dumped her (I'm sensing a theme here) and Thomas who was also drunk had sex with her. Very shady storyline.
It's very obvious that this show is written by misogynists who have a complete lack of respect for women. Rape is not a joke and should never be treated as such. Real women suffer real rapes and they don't get over it in a month or a year and never think about it again. The writing about rape on this show is sick.

It's very obvious that this show is written by misogynists who have a complete lack of respect for women. Rape is not a joke and should never be treated as such. Real women suffer real rapes and they don't get over it in a month or a year and never think about it again. The writing about rape on this show is sick.

Wel said, I totally agree.

I can't understand , specially from Taylor. She literally killed someone because she drove drunk with a suspended licence, and covered it up. She almost set herself on fire because of alcohol. She lost custody of her son because of alcohol. She is the last person who should judge alcoholics. Ridge also had issues with alcohol, but at least he never killed anyone because of it. But I agree, his "mistakes" with Shauna should be acknowledged. Nobody spiked his drink when he spent the night with Shauna or when he '''married''' her in Vegas.

It is just the same old BS on this show. If one of the Tridge idiots does it, it is all just a mistake. If a Logan does it, they should be made to wear a giant A on their clothing, before they are burned at the stake. I am really sick and tired of all the Tridgesters getting away with murder, attempted murder, drunken antics, lying, cheating, stealing, blackmailing, etc. You name it, one of them have done it. Even making out with dolls, and hallucinating that a baby is mocking them. These people are freaking criminal loons. Taylor and Tom should be locked up with Sheila.

So although Brooke an alcoholic was drunk she knowingly and willingly partied with Deacon and invited him to spend the night? I’m confused because that next morning Brooke expressed shock to see Deacon there. I’m also remembering the Ridge-Shauna story. Is the show now saying that Ridge willingly went upstairs with Shauna, allowed her to take off his clothes and slipped under the covers with him? Brooke learned about what happened from the bartender. I’m confused about these alcohol stories. Under what circumstances are characters in control? In real life, there many young college men serving jail time because young college coed can’t remember inviting them to the room because they all were drunk.

It's a good question considering the number of comments on this board about Brooke wanting to kiss Deacon even though she was drunk. Comments like drunk Brook wouldn't do something she didn't want. That's a very uncomfortable and scary observation considering what you mention above and the number of assaults that occur on drunk woman.

Most men or boys do not want, and never would assault a woman/girl. We think these things because those are the cases you hear about in the news. To be fair here, Quinn raped Liam. Sheila raped James. Brooke was going to have sex with a very drunk Ridge, but stopped it because she came to her senses. Taylor did have sex with a drugged up Ridge, but to be fair, she mistook his submissiveness as him just desiring her. Morgan kidnapped an amnesiac Ridge, but I do not remember if she raped him or not.

Maybe Bell needs to stop this type of abusive, distasteful SL telling. All I can say, he is fair about it He has the boys sexually assaulting the girls, and the girls sexually assaulting the boys.

Yes, same with drunk men. When Ridge was drunk at the bar and ended up in bed with Shauna I would never have considered Ridge doing that because he wanted to be with Shauna. Brooke was blitzed that night. Kissing Deacon was the result of being drugged and not by choice. Being carried upstairs by Deacon and lying beside him in bed was also not her choice. I also don't fault her for not telling Ridge until she processed the whole situation. For me, the shock for Brooke was the drinking and not the kiss.

I’m with you. I do not believe all these young men who end up in jail for rape are rapists. But the law says if when the young woman is sober she says she didn’t give anyone permission to have sex with her, it is rape. Soaps need to leave alcohol and drinking alone unless they are committed to doing it with responsibility. Anyone who drinks excessively and god forbid add drugs to it are at high risk.

But look at the contrast of the two households. On one side you have Brooke’s household with Brooke, Hope, and Deacon having a normal conversation vs Crazy Cliffhouse chaos. Tridge is the epitome of hypocrisy and the the chickens coming home to roost. They cannot sweep things under the rug anymore there isn’t enough room.

I thought the same thing. Deacon, Brooke and Hope have such normal conversations compared to the ones that have place in the cliff house... And I don't talk about confronting Sheila, but what happened before that. They do nothing, but hate on Brooke or Hope, judging others while doing the same or worse... :roll

What counts for me when it comes to classifying situations like these as rape or not is if the culprits were aware that the other person was likely too intoxicated or impaired to say no and if there's a valid reason to believe a simple no would have been enough to make them back off. If both of those criteria are in favor of the culprit, I would never call that person a rapist.

Quinn absolutely knew that Liam was mentally impaired and she consciously took advantage of his condition, so I'd definitely call that rape.
But when Thomas slept with Caroline he had no idea that she had taken pills in addition to her drinking. From his point of view, after what he had witnessed, she wasn't any more intoxicated than he was himself, so he had no reason to believe she was incapable of stopping him if she didn't want him in her bed. If he had been sober, he might have realized that something more was wrong with her than just being a little drunk, but due to his own drinking he was even less sensitive to her real condition. When she didn't push him away he took that as consent based on what he knew about her condition. So to me that wasn't rape.

Same with the Ridge/Brooke situation. Of course it was a bad idea and very egoistical of him to go upstairs at all after Brooke had already told him to leave a few minutes before. He also didn't have the excuse of being drunk himself like Thomas. But just like Thomas, Ridge had no idea that Brooke had taken any pills and was too intoxicated to tell him yet again to leave her alone if that was what she really wanted. When she didn't, he truly thought she had changed her mind. I have no doubt he would have respected her wishes if she had told him to get out of her bed. He clearly believed that saying no was something she was still capable of, because his reaction the next morning when he realized that he had misinterpreted the situation spoke volumes. He was literally beating himself up for hurting her. And even Brooke herself almost instantly forgave him because she knew he would never intentionally do anything like that to her. So once again no rape in my opinion.

Actually, situations like a totally sober and unimpaired Nick taking advantage of Brooke at the foundry, when it took nothing but common sense to realize that she was in no condition to consent after she had just tried to kill herself out of grief over her husband, or like a totally sober and unimpaired Shauna taking advantage of a clearly passed out Ridge by kissing and snuggling up to a man she was fangirling over, who had never given her any signals that he was interested in her, were much more questionable acts to me than the two situations above. Shauna even had the audacity to call those moments "romantic" when she told Flo about the night. If Ridge or any other man had ever done the same to a passed out woman who had never been interested in him at all, all hell would have broken loose.

As for Brooke and Deacon on NYE, the original topic of this thread, it's hard to say how much of the blame for the kiss is solely on Deacon. But what he can absolutely be blamed for is that he didn't really do anything to stop a recovered alcoholic from downing the vodka like water. Because when they started drinking together he was clearly still sober enough to realize what this meant for her health, he just didn't care. When she opened the bottle he uttered a half-hearted warning, and then he quickly shut up because he knew this was his chance to finally have a little fun with Brooke and get closer to her after all those times she had rejected him before when she was sober.
Also, he can't have been nearly as drunk as Brooke even by the time they kissed, because how would he still have been able to help her upstairs and put her into bed when she passed out if he had been more than tipsy himself? How would he still have remembered everything that happened after the kiss while she didn't, and how would he still have been able to make the conscious decision to sleep in the same bed but on top of the covers? If he had been as drunk as she was, they both would have passed out together on the couch in the living room shortly after the kiss.
I still wouldn't put all the blame for the kiss on him, because he probably didn’t realize that Brooke was already so drunk that she was about to pass out. But the way the show is now making it sound like Brooke invited Deacon to sleep on her bed even though she was already passed out and that she might have kissed him even without the alcohol, only to make Deacon look less sleazy, is just infuriating. Exactly the same way when what Shauna did to a completely incapacitated Ridge at Bikini or what Nick did to a suicidal Brooke at the foundry was brushed off as no big deal and quickly swept under the rug just to make them a viable part of a triangle with Bridge.

Yes, the situations were pretty similar, but still different, because Ridge was already passed out when Shauna kissed him, it was like Thomas kissing a sleeping Brooke on the plane. If Ridge had been awake, I can't imagine he would have allowed that kiss to happen, no matter how drunk he was. He only started actively kissing Shauna after Brooke had taken off her wedding ring and thrown him out.
Brooke however kissed Deacon back. She only passed out after that, the only thing she had no idea about was that he was sleeping on her bed. I totally agree that she would never have kissed him if she hadn't been drunk and that her part of the blame is actually on Sheila, but she was still an active participant. So it looked totally different to Ridge than what Shauna did to him at Bikini.

I have one more example. Brooke never recalled sleeping with Eric and making Bridget. They were separated. He slipped into her bed while she was knocked out on flu or cold meds. Old fashion affairs are much more interesting than tricks and alcohol fueled sex. I wish show would leave it alone. Have they not noticed that Quinn and Carter and Donna and Eric generated more shock and awe than the rehashed triangles from hell.
