FROM THIS EPISODE

Under California’s proposed new standard for sexual consent, an accused aggressor can no longer defend himself by saying, “she didn’t resist.” He can’t blame the victim for being drunk, either. Will the change constrain sexual violence on college and university campuses? Is it too much government intrusion into the bedroom?

Also, straight people are moving into enclaves for gays and lesbians, creating an identity crisis for residents.

Changing the Way a Campus Sexual Assault Is Defined? 15 MIN, 33 SEC

Governor Brown has until the end of this month to sign or veto a new bill passed unanimously in the Senate and in the Assembly by a vote of 52 to 16. It would require all public and private colleges that take state funding for student aid to change their standards for sexual assault on campus. Briefly stated, it means going from “no means no” to “yes means yes.”
