Moore told Trudeau that she went to Pacetti’s Ottawa hotel room in March 2014 at 2 a.m. to have another drink. She admits she never said “no” to his sexual advances and never attempted to leave the room. And here’s the rub: she provided the condom for the sex they had.
So, according to Moore, the above-mentioned, close-talking Weir should have been able to pick up on “non-verbal cues”; but when she pulled a condom out of her handbag during foreplay at 2 a.m. in a man’s hotel room, that “non-verbal cue” should have been ignored. *1
Men must now be able to read women’s “non-verbal cues” while simultaneously only accepting “explicit verbal consent.” It’s heads I win, tails you lose, for the likes of Moore.
“We were lovers,” she said, adding they had discussed long-term plans, of which the plane ticket was evidence.
“Maybe he lied to me and never loved me, but at the time I was sure we were lovers.”
Kirkland, when reached by phone in Manitoba, maintained he had never been in a relationship with Moore.
“God no! Relationships mean both parties have to be involved,” he said.

"Look, I'm not crying rape," Kirkland said. "I don't like to think of myself as a survivor. I prefer 'thriver.' But what she did was inappropriate. Was I a willing participant? I guess it depends on your definition of willing. There was a power imbalance. There was a level of authority there."
