You Need Consent. Period. Joe Biden
Vice President Joe Biden won’t stand down when it comes to consent— a must before sexual contact.
JOE BIDEN: Nothing justifies a man laying a hand on a woman without her consent. Look, you need consent. If the woman is totally drunk and inebriated, she can't give consent, it's rape. It's rape if you cannot give consent. It is assault. A woman could get up and walk down the street here stark naked, no man has a right to lay a hand on her.
There is no justification. She can be arrested for indecent exposure, but no man has a right to lay their hand on. And until we get to the point where no person who has been victimized says, "What did I do? " We'll succeed when we change the culture enough that no woman says, "What did I do?"
And we'll have succeeded when no young man says, "Well it was my right," or "I was entitled" or "she asked for it." It is never, never, never, never justified.
