It's not even comparable in scale. The only similarity is "sex without consent."

Apart from that, hardly anything. In actual rape, a woman is stripped of her chastity, something far more important than consent.
Non-consensual sex in marriage is grossly immoral and condemned by the shastras. Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not saying it's fine.

Just that it's not comparable to actual rape, and it's not an issue of *legal* concern.
The notion that it's "literally rape" stems from an American worldview that places consent as the most important determiner of morality (not just in sexual matters, but in everything). This is why they see no wrong in all manner of sexual degeneracy, so long as it's consensual.
Furthermore, the state has no right to interfere between members of a family. Allowing this only leads to the weakening of family ties and disincentivization of marriage itself.

Lol, why can't these people ever have the forethought to at least qualify such statements to the issue at hand?

Instead, they choose to universally apply the Liberal logic even at the expense of our own dharma.
This is the precise line of thought that leads them to disown our own Hindus whenever our dharma comes into conflict with Liberal ideals. Take the examples of issues like gaurakshaks, lgtv, or ritual priesthoods.
At the end of it, due to these repeated attempts to gain the validation of Liberalism, these organisations end up serving Liberal values first, relegating Hinduism to a mere aesthetic flair of their activism.
