Sexual Assault On Campus

Sexual Assault On Campus

While one has to have a great deal of
sympathy for Ms. Bobs-Waksberg (“On Campus, An Assault On The Status Quo,” Feb. 6), one

drugs and alcohol has an awful lot to
deal with the situation that created
date rape [or other forms of sexual assault]. Often both parties are
so high or intoxicated that making out
a case of non-consensual sex is

The answer is for
the university to take some
responsibility regarding excessive
intoxication and drug use. (Many states
have a legal drinking age of 21 that should
be enforced). This will cut the rate
of date rape, not unenforceable rules
on what constitutes consent in highly
ambiguous situations.
