Vice President Joe Biden coupled his unveiling of this ad yesterday with a speech introducing new guidelines meant to curb instances of sexual assault on college campuses. “We almost always ask the wrong questions when it comes to sexual assault,” explained Biden. “We continue to ask questions like ‘What were you wearing? What did you say?’… The real question is what made him think that he had the right to do what he did?”
If you’re curious, one of the new guidelines is that colleges and universities that receive federal funding will be required to investigate sexual assault claims or be found in violation of the Title IX equal rights law. I wish I could be surprised that that wasn’t the case already.
