In a deeply irresponsible Wall Street Journal editorial, columnist James Taranto championed the perceived plight of college men who are (or could be) accused of sexually assaulting an intoxicated female, particularly when the men are themselves intoxicated. Alcohol consumption and sexual assault are realities on college campuses nationwide, and it’s an important conversation to have. In having the conversation, however, it’s important to be armed with facts.
Fact 1: Men who rape use alcohol and intoxication to commit their crimes.
Fact 2: Men who rape are often “good guys” in the community’s eyes.
Fact 3: Rape is not a reaction to regret or miscommunication. It’s a crime.
Fact 4: Being raped while intoxicated is traumatic.
Fact 5: Ending rape is not about being male or female. It’s about being human.
