Alex Marlow, the 31-year-old editor-in-chief of far right website Breitbart News said women – in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal – are using the term 'rape' to refer to sex they simply regret. Breitbart's current executive chairman is former Trump special counselor and campaign manager Steve Bannon, who has been associated with the so-called "alt-right" movement.

“Rape used to have a narrow definition. Rape used to have a definition where it was - it was brutality, it was forced sexual attack and penetration," Marlow, who grew up in a Jewish home, said. 

“Now it’s become, really, any sex that the woman ends up regretting that she had,” he said on SiriusXM Patriot's Breitbart News Daily.

“And that leaves us without a lot of clarity, because when words lose their meaning, then they can be manipulated.” 

“We have distorted the definition of the word rape. Now it seems to be the claims are losing some credibility because there are so many of them, which is a shame because there are many legitimate victims of brutal attacks and predatory behaviour by powerful men," concluded Marlow.
