Joe Biden Tells Students: ‘You’ve Got To Speak Up’ About Sexual Assault

Former Vice President Joe Biden, railing against sexual assault on college campuses, gave a sharply worded speech in which he lectured college students on the definition of rape, the Daily Mail reported.

“Guys, a woman who’s dead drunk cannot consent. You are raping her,” Biden declared at George Mason University during the school’s “On Us” campaign to stop sexual attacks. “We’ve got to talk about this. I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms. I don’t know where in locker rooms it is acceptable to talk about, ‘Man I was out this weekend and boy I got a piece of her and I did this and I did that.’ The guys who say that are usually the ugliest sons of bi-guns in the room.”

He continued: “Here’s the deal, guys, you’ve got to speak up. You cannot let that kind of talk be bred on a college campus. When you see something, if you’re a fraternity brother and you see a young freshman co-ed in the second week dead drunk, and him walking her up the stairs, you’ve got to go up to him and say, ‘Hey, not in my house, Jack.’ Because if you don’t, you are an accomplice. … I say to you guys, please, please act like men.”

It was not the first time the former vice president has ridiculed the excuse of “locker room talk.” He also dismissed the term last year, in response to the release of an audio recording in which Donald Trump bragged about having inappropriately kissed and groped women.

Joining Biden at George Mason University was Alisha Boe, an actress on “13 Reasons Why.” The television show depicts her character, Jessica, dealing with having been raped. “We want the survivors in the room today to know that your voice matters, your story is important and your truth is real,” Boe told the crowd, according to The Huffington Post. “You are never, ever, ever alone.” She encouraged men as well as women to lend support to victims “in any way they can.”
