California Is About To Pass A
Bizarre Law Making Sex A Legalistic
Nightmare For College Males

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/14/2014 5:44:51 AM

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define

Honestly, in a day and age where every college student has a phone with video, all a guy has to do is tape her saying she is doing this of her own accord. And if she says no, take a shower.

Sloppy reporting. Leaves out the fact that Democrats control every bit of California state government. Ergo, this is Lefty control madness that we´ve grown so accustomed to.
Remember when Lefties abhorred the notion of the government in the bedroom. No more, they barge into every aspect of life, with impunity, leaving a mess of bad policy and unintended consequences in their wake.

Only the Obama administration would think that it could micromanage sex among college students and thereby determine what is or is not assault. What hubris!

And out Dem "lawmakers" are such patsies for whatever O wants.s

Unfortunately the House has a Dem majority - most recently 69% according to Wikipedia. But perhaps there are some sane Democrats there?

Seriously though, college men will need to have their lawyers execute binding contracts prior to sex. How romantic is that?

This "bizarre" law should apply to both hetero- and homo- conduct. Otherwise, it would be discriminatory.

Who knows - maybe some aggressive females will be charged with assault on males. /s

OK..so my fellow dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago. But my question is "What are young people, the primary purpose of whose presence in an institution of learning is getting an education, doing having sex out of wedlock in the first place?" And why is society/government giving official recognition to such an activity?

Clearly what is needed here is a legal form entitled "Consent to have sex with me" that would have to be signed by both parties before they do the nasty. In most cases that would cover whatever poped up later on.

Sorry to burst your bubble but unbeknownst to virtually all, sex is currently a legalistic nightmare for young teens. Neither party is technically able to consent. If the age difference is 2 years, the older teen is liable for statutory rape. If the girl invites the boy over, shows him to the bed, strips, helps him strip, but decides at the end of foreplay that this is a bad idea, she can say stop and he must obey. If he doesn´t stop, her claim that she said stop is sufficient to bring assault charges. In the juvenile system that first step is a custody hearing to determine whether the boy can remain in parental custody until psychiatric evaluation and eventual trial. Next comes juvenile probation and alternative school. After 2 months of juvenile probation, the DA finally allowed a grand jury to hear the case (not the procedure in a juvenile case) and they reported back that they didn´t believe either the girl or my son, but recommended against prosecution.

California is merely clarifying the rules. The claim of rape is presumed to be true by those investigating and prosecuting the case. If it is made, the guy is in serious trouble.

Stupid Cali Legislature. Excuse the redundancy. Laws like this have the effect of stifling good law abiding men, because the real offenders don´t pay attention to such laws. Furthermore, pity the poor Cali college women who now majorly outnumber the men in those schools. Now with this law they´ll get even less forthcoming, forthright male attention. WTG, Cali Legislature and leftist obama regime ideologues!

Attorneys send letter to senators
opposing campus sexual assault bill
Washington Examiner [DC], by Ashe Schow    Original Article

A group of 20 attorneys from across the country with experience handling sexual assault cases sent a letter on Thursday to the co-sponsors of the Senate’s campus sexual assault bill. The attorneys, who have all represented students accused of sexual assault who are now suing their universities for lack of due process, wrote that while sexual assault needs to be addressed, rights of the accused need to be preserved. “We are concerned that the complexity of the problem and the momentum to find a solution to the manner in which colleges handle these matters will overwhelm any effort to ensure fair treatment

Dear Reader (including those of you under quarantine), Well, this “news”letter usually begins one of two ways: serious or jocular. How about, just for a change of pace, we start off scary and see how that works out? If I were in charge of overseas contingency operations at the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, I would send as many suicide-bomber types back to America (and France and Britain) with a new weapon: Ebola. Airport scanners don’t pick it up. The incubation period is long enough to get the human biological weapons past screeners without detection. I’d tell them: Take as many connections as

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a bio-ethicist and influential health adviser to President Barack Obama, stirred the pot in an article in the October issue of, “The Atlantic” under the headline, “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” “The mayor personally disagrees with his brother’s view on dying at 75, but he also believes it’s important to look at what Zeke was really exploring, which is how to live a full life –

So the three Afghan Army deserters who fled Camp Edwards and, after a short sojourn at a local strip club, took off for Canada, are now begging for political “asylum.” And we all know what political asylum means — instant welfare, forever. Instead of going in front of a firing squad, or at least being sent back to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban, the deserters are likely to score EBT cards, MassHealth, WIC vouchers, Section 8 housing, free translators — the full Tsarnaev, in

The classic cat and mouse cartoons, some made more than 70 years ago, carry a warning for subscribers to Amazon Prime Instant Video. There have been claims of racist stereotyping in the depiction of a black maid in the cartoon series. Amazon´s warning says such prejudice was once "commonplace" in US society. Tom and Jerry, once a staple of children´s television on British television, is being presented with a cautionary note about "ethnic and racial prejudices".

Americans love animals, even cats. Eight million stray dogs and cats find their way into animal shelters every year, and the lucky ones are adopted into a warm home with a loving family. Shelters are operated by small charities usually called “humane societies,” whose good deeds are funded by private generosity. The Humane Society of the United States trades on the good of others to finance a radical agenda. In May, the Humane Society and a handful of other radical animal-rights groups had to write a $15.8 million check to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for damages done. The

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate.
