    Based on the article you posted it would seem that many of the "complaintants" are female Yale students.

    I guess female students' parents don't contribute to the university?

    Yale University has found six students guilty of 'non-consensual sex' in the past six months and not one of them has been expelled from the prestigious Ivy League college, according to an official report.
    Four of the perpetrators were given written reprimands after the victims reported the sexual assaults to staff, one student received probation and another was suspended for two semesters but will be free to return next year to graduate - with an Ivy League diploma.

    Yale, which is based in New Haven, Connecticut, said it responded to a total of eight reports of sexual assault in the first half of 2013. The other two students were found not guilty of rape allegations, the school said.

    The only thing that makes any sense is maybe the university to trying to cleverly avoid building a negative statistical paper-trail by leaving out "the r word." What I also don't get was why the slap on the wrist punishments. I thought rapists were supposed to go to prison for years.

    Peart admits the descriptions of cases in the report 'do not fully capture the diversity and complexity of the circumstances associated with the complaints or the factors that determined the outcomes and sanctions' due to confidentiality.

    Maybe it wasn't what we think of when we think rape. For example, I have a friend who was charged with "indecent assault" under the UCMJ. Sounds like it might be rape but it might have been slapping someone on the butt. ???

    it employs the term “non-consensual sex” rather than “rape” or more explicit language to allow the University to impose sanctions for behaviors that may not meet a criminal standard.
    .
    So if they call it rape then they're using a legal term and then have a higher burden of proof to meet.
    And, likely, unless the perpetrators are convicted, they run into the possibility of defamation lawsuits.

    I edited my post if you didnt notice. But none the less it would have been better to use a better site. (Like the one quoted above)

    I'm really old fashioned and grew up with rape being when you forcibly have sex with someone against their stated will.

    I'm honestly not even sure why younger generations bother with sex these days.

    Jerking off is almost as good without having to worry that someone will have buyers remorse in the morning and it will become rape.

    Re: Non consentual sex is not rape

    If a girl that would never say "yes" to sex with some random dude gets pretty damn drunk, like to the point where she doesn't remember a few hours from the previous night, and says "yes" to sex during that drunken night, then wakes up the next morning with a naked guy she doesn't know from Adam, was she raped?

    Suppose there's nobody around to confirm or deny that she said "yes" to sex but the guy, who was also quite drunk at the time?

    Plenty of people saw them making out and grinding each other on the dance floor, and plenty saw them leave together, and then enter the girls dorm.
    But nobody knows what happened once they entered the girl's room and closed the door.

    She just woke up and found a naked guy lying next to her, and she states emphatically that she did NOT consent to sex.

    The guy swears not only did she say "yes", but she initiated the sex.

    He said/she said.

    Rape?

    One of the things that make rape rape is the fact it is non-consensual sex. I think the school is trying to hide crimes in order to protect its image.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Non consentual sex is not rape

    What are they saying? "Yes, we had sex and no, I didn't agree. It was good though." Or is it rape? C'mon. Rape is rape. If you've been raped and you go to the New Haven police, it's going to be a rape they're investigating and not "non-consensual" sex. Yale is just redefining yet another term to maintain an image.
