Yale Considers 'Nonconsensual Sex' as Sexual Assault But It's Not Rape?
Aug 28, 2013 01:19
After a sexual assault complaint two years ago sparked a federal investigation, Yale University still can't talk about sexual assault like adults.
The university's semi-annual report used the benign, confusing term of "nonconcensual sex" instead of "rape" to describe the incident, and said in some cases it was only punished with a written reprimand. So some angry Yale students and alumni wrote petitions and letters of their own.
A group of 229 Yale alumni published an open letter last week demanding their alma mater make reforms to its policies on sexual assault on campus, raising concerns similar to those addressed earlier in August by "Students Against Sexual Assault at Yale," a group of current students.
In response to the open letter, Yale's Title IX Coordinator Stephanie Spangler said that "nonconsensual sex" refers to "one of the behaviors that we consider sexual assault," and that the school issues "as harsh a punishment as is warranted."
In the coming weeks, the university plans to release a series of hypothetical situations to explain how it categorizes types of sexual violence and the corresponding punishments. Spangler said this is an attempt to resolve concerns that the university does not remove assailants from campus.
Erm.. Shouldn't the students who were found guilty of "nonconsensual sex" be dealt with more harshly than just a written reprimand?
