ARE AMERICAN MEN ALLOWED TO REFUSE GAY SEX? That question will be answered in the "Minnesota v. Mark Bowles" case. We will see if prison investors in Minnesota will incarcerate a U.S. veteran for having a mental health crisis after suffering a brain injury he received resisting jailhouse RAPE. This happened during Mark's jail sentence in Anoka County Jail when he should have been an inpatient or outpatient for epilepsy. Our GLBTQ friends of justice also object to rapes of heterosexuals. Mark faces imprisonment for frightening a nurse in his room during an epileptic seizure caused by the head injury after recovering from a coma. Why didn't the state prosecute the inmate who attacked Mark and gave him the traumatic brain injury? See Lewis (the alleged attacker on the right) and Mark Bowles in a coma in the photograph above.

UPDATE June 26, 2014: sent me a message: "He slit his throat!" Her son, Mark Bowles, is on his way now to the hospital. He was convicted by a jury yesterday that was denied hearing any defense Mark could have given for allegedly assaulting a nurse in his hospital room. Actually, he frightened the nurse who fell and bumped her own head. Mark did not touch her. The veteran had an epileptic crisis after coming out of a coma caused by a traumatic brain injury he suffered while fighting off a jail inmate who wanted to rape him. The jury was allowed to know none of this. All defenses related to Mark's diminished capacity were reportedly squashed by Judge Frank Kundrat. The jury reportedly sent questions to the court, including: 1) Was Mark Bowles mentally ill? 2) Was Mark Bowles on medication that may have contributed to his offenses? The judge refused answers to the jury questions.
America presently has more than 1.25 million mentally ill inmates. The wrongful conviction of Mark Bowles, a U.S. veteran and epileptic patient, helps explain how it happened.
OUR ANSWER: NO, AMERICAN MEN HAVE NO PROTECTED RIGHT TO REFUSE GAY SEX.
