"Every now and then, some lunatic in the group proposes to change the rule to allow women to be raped," he added. "But they never were able to get six votes for it. There were always the four women voting against it and they always found two guys."

"Well, the guy that kept proposing that women be raped finally got tired of it, and he was in the majority and he was one that [said], 'You know what? We're going to change the rule. Now all we need is five,'" he continued. "And well, 'you can't do that.' 'Yes we are. We're the majority. We're changing the rule.' And then they vote.

"Can the women be raped? Well, all it would take then is half of the room. You can change the rule to say three," he said. "You can change the rule to say three people want it, it's going to happen. There's no rule. When the majority can change the rules there aren't any."
