Is it rape? No answer came the stern reply.

It's deeply disturbing to read the Washington Examiner's effort to get someone to answer the law's question:  How can a man prove consent before engaging in sex?  No one answered.  Ms. Schow approached sponsors of seven different "Yes mean Yes" bills around the country, including Cuomo and Brown.  She approached more than two dozen universities involved in implementing a "Yes means Yes" policy. "No answer" was the stern reply.

The only on-record comment she found was this:
Asked how an accused person could prove consent was obtained before sex, California Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune in June that “your guess is as good as mine.”  “I think it’s a legal issue,” she added. “Like any legal issue, that goes to court.”  

Accusation IS the evidence.  That's shabby law.  Legislators surge in a crowd to create fashionably solemn statements.   Without a tool to measure by, it is fraudulent and undermines the rule of law.

In the same vein, read this.  If you didn't have your camera filming at the time, do you think you wouldn't be in for a world of trouble?   Your guess is as good as mine.
