The FBI currently defines rape as “the carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will”, which, as Vanessa explained back in April, excludes statutory rape, same-sex rape, forced anal or oral sex, rape with an object and victims who are male or transgender or have disabilities, not to mention those who have taken drugs or alcohol and therefore had their ability to consent
The Uniform Crime Report Subcommittee voted unanimously to change the definition of rape, which had not been changed for 80 years (!) and rape will now be defined as, “penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”
VERY GOOD NEWS
The Majority of Americans Believe That “Geek
is a Compliment | The Mary Sue
Now that we’ve reclaimed “geek” however, there are still some issues to be ironed out. ”Nerd,” for example, is apparently still derogative. 87% of self-identified geeks would rather be called a “geek” than a “nerd.” Oh, and 50% of the respondents still equate geekdom with being socially awkward.
Blah blah blah labels are stupid blah blah blah, but still, this is kinda cool. I think these results are probably moreso because of a broadening definition of the word “geek” than they are the result some sort of mass acceptance of geek culture.
That being said, mark me down as taking it as a compliment. Geek pride!
