What constitutes a yes?

One thing about women college students... apparently when they go off to college all they want to do is get drunk...and if sex happens...well, it wasn't their fault, they were drunk, the guy shouldn't have taken advantage of them.

I remember - this was decades ago - visiting my sister who was in her first year in the Air Force, back when she had to live in a dorm with another woman - her roommate got drunk every Saturday and spent every Sunday throwing up in the toilet.

So now out of California we get this "Defining when yes means yes" law, to help universities prosecute rape.

And I'm just thinking - if women wouldn't get so stinking drunk that they wouldn't be unconscious while someone was violating them, or so drunk that they lose their inhibiitions (which is why most people get drunk) they wouldn't place themselves in a position where they'd need this stupid "Yes means yes" legislation.

(And no I'm not saying a woman who is drunk out of her mind deserves to be raped. I'm just saying that she really has no one to blame but herself if she can't fight the drunk college kid on top of her off or is unconscious while it's happening.

(I'm not talking about women who are victims of a date rape drug, mind you, taking a drink from a guy they trusted. I'm talking about women who get so drunk that they don't even know what day it is...and then wonder why no one respects them enough to ask permission...
