    Non consentual sex is not rape

    So according to Yale university non consensual sex is not always rape. I guess I'm old fashioned but I kinda thought non consensual sex was the definition of rape.

    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.

    They're all a bunch of sneaky, dirty lawyer people. So of course they'll weasel themselves into one definion or another.

    Sex misconduct report spurs criticism of disciplinary procedures | Yale Daily News

    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 may be wrong.

    I think the word games at Yale are designed to get rich kids with parents that contribute to Yale off the hook but it's just a theory. On the other hand it could be some entirely new "progressive" way of defining rape that escapes me.

    CRAP! 61 complaints from Jan-June?! That's really bad! Oh and I guess they are called ''complaints'' now and not allegations or accusations.
