Or maybe it's the first one to wake up and scream rape?  

How do you tell who the perpetrator is if both were drunk?

 
Unfortunately, different states have different laws about rape, and have different ways about determining that, so there is no hard and fast answer as the laws currently stand. Even more unfortunately, many states' laws directly contribute to rape culture and work hard to blame the victim and defend the perpetrator.

Only if she was the perpetrator. The issue here isn't if both are drunk. It's if one person (even drunk) approaches another person unable to consent - for whatever reason, including alcohol.

It's not a perfect system, clearly. But people are wrongly charged of other crimes - also not good. This is a step in the right direction, towards minimizing rape culture.

That's so sad =/ For all of them. The one positive thing - if it can be called that - about this story was that they said "we thought it would be funny but it wasn't". Maybe an indication that they knew the culture was wrong.

Thank you for posting this, Brina. I just watched them, and I have to say I think it's a fantastic start. I think I'm going to send them to my high-school aged cousin- even if they do mention resources available specifically at the university, and reference Montana law, the overall message is very positive and informative.

 
Thank you for this! Watched them all. Nicely done they were. I think I will be sending them along to a few folks myself. They very nicely kept the university specific information in one video. (Not counting the opening and closing - I think those can be very powerful for other school leaders to see.) These would be easy to open and close with other schools' information should they be permitted to use the rest. Very helpful!
