In a long interview on rape culture on University campuses, former Vice President Joe Biden spoke with Teen Vogue on his work with the “It’s On Us” campaign, which wants people who think they witness a sexual assault on campus to step up and speak up.
But Biden is also spreading untruths and that will likely cause causes confusion about sex and consent among students.
In his interview, he stated if a woman has consumed a bit too much booze and then decides to have sex, the other party is committing rape. “If a young woman is drunk, she cannot consent. She cannot consent, and it’s rape. It’s rape, it’s rape, it’s rape,” he emphasized.
The U.S. Department of Justice does not agree however. It says alcohol is a factor in rape only if a person is incapacitated, so one may not be able to drive, but can still consent to sexual activity.
I am a very proud Citizen of the United States. That took place in early 2008 after a seven year legal journey. As you can imagine, I have some views on immigration which you will find in these pages from time to time.
I was born in London, England and have been American in my attitudes for as long as I can remember. The Constitution should be regarded as a sacred document. Unfortunately as each year passes it seems to be less important. We have a President who told the American People BEFORE he was elected that the Constitution was a "flawed document". That would have been electoral suicide just a few short years ago. I remember when we were trying to help Iraq write it's constitution I said on the radio "we should give them ours! After all, we stopped using it years ago".
I started work as a journalist in 1976 when at the tender age of 16 I got a job on the Jerusalem Post. Recently I have been guest hosting talk radio around the country. Prior to that, you could have heard The Simon Conway Radio Experience.
I am a radio talk show host whose conservative outlook was forged in my native UK, where I experienced the considerable downsides of European-style socialism. I have a unique insight into health care and all the other trappings of a socialist society because I've already lived through where we are headed.
