Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke with Teen Vogue on his work with the “It’s On Us” campaign, which is aimed at encouraging witnesses to intervene when they see or suspect rape on college campuses. While its mission is noble, Biden’s spreading of misinformation causes confusion about sex and consent among students.
In his interview, he stated that if a woman has consumed a bit too much alcohol and then decides to have sex, the other party is committing rape. “If a young woman is drunk, she cannot consent. She cannot consent, and it's rape. It’s rape, it’s rape, it’s rape,” he emphasized.
The U.S. Department of Justice says alcohol is a factor in rape only if a person is incapacitated, so one may not be able to drive, but can still consent to sexual activity.
