Ah, but it's not the same situation.  Mr. in a Spacesuit is being forced to move by the speeder, yes, but e's the one that caused the speeder to move.  E did in fact push a button or whatever to cause the speeder, with em in it, to move.  And the whole premise of being caught by a siren is that the victim doesn't want to move away from her.  If e doesn't want to move away from her, e doesn't want to cause eir speeder to take em away from her either.

Were someone else to somehow cause eir speeder to move, or cause em against eir will to cause eir speeder to move, that would be a different matter.  But e's allegedly causing eir speeder to move with em in it, and presumably this is something e voluntarily would not do.
