The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Can You Prove She Said Yes?

For John, BLUFEither the Courts are going to fix this or we will see massive social upheaval.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

The new thing is "Yes means Yes" laws popping up around the nation, with California in the lead.

Now comes a Washington Examiner reporter, Ashe Schow, asking "How can those accused of sexual assault prove consent under 'yes means yes'?"

Your response is to say the accused are innocent until proven guilty, but that is not the trend with regard to the pronouncements from the US Department of Education and the procedures on campuses across the country.

There is even a book, on the topic, from 2008, Yes Means Yes.

Our only hope is in Love itself.  Not in promiscuity.  I reference I Corinthians, 13:4-8a.

Hat tip to the Instapundit.

While I agree with your Biblical reference, I am not certain that the Bible and the nature of these liaisons should be spoken of in the same breath. Sadly, there is always a form of sexual "buyer's remorse" and even more sadly, our legal system has all but abandoned rational ADULT thinking. The presence of semen in a vagina by itself alone hardly constitutes "rape" or non-consensual sexual contact. Rape is a violent act in which the person being raped must surely put up some sort of resistance.....or evidence of being compelled to submit, chemically or otherwise. Instead, a woman has sex, doesn't like it for some reason, cries rape either to the police or some other shoddy journalistic means, and some guy's life is reduced to ruins. Does anybody believe that the NC lacrosse players have not had their lives irrevocably altered by a lie?
