There was a case in California where a couple were having consensual sex. During the act, she said "I should be going now" and "I need to go home." She never said "stop". He finished and was convicted of ****. Issue on appeal was whether her statement was sufficient to withdraw consent. The court ruled it was. Most people wouldn't lump him in with the typical rapist, but he should have stopped. So the law is pretty clear that anyone can withdraw consent at any time and consensual acts can become unconsentual ones.
With regard to this forum, I don't think most of the posters here are saying it's the woman's fault. I think most of us are putting aside political correctness and just applying common sense to the information we have. Maybe it's not the full story. But the version of events being attributed to her is simply implausible.
