New York bill finally expands legal definition of ‘rape’ to include any forced sexual contact  February 14, 2013 – 07:00 pm

Advocates are praising a newly revised version of New York’s “Rape is Rape” bill that classifies any vaginal contact as “rape, ” bringing the legal definition of that form of sexual assault in line with the standards for forced anal and oral contact.

The change came shortly after Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) endorsed the bill on Tuesday, when Republican state Sen. Catharine Young (pictured) introduced a second version that removes the legal requirement of “penetration” for forced vaginal penetration to be considered “rape, ” and expands the conduct covered by the term to include forced oral and anal sex.

A New York Daily News story noted that the confusion about the last-minute changes surprised even rape survivor Lydia Cuomo, whose brutal sexual assault by an NYPD officer didn’t result in his conviction of first degree rape charges because the prior definitions required prosecutors to prove a specific kind of penetration. Cuomo, who is not related to the governor, wants the definition of rape changed to include vaginal, oral or anal contact — which the bill now does.

An aide to Sen. Young confirmed to Raw Story that characterization is correct. “It changes the standard for vaginal rape from penetration to contact, ” the aide said. “It makes it easier to convict. [Prosecutors] just need to prove contact and not penetration, which was the problem that existed in Lydia Cuomo’s case. They had a lot of evidence but couldn’t prove penetration. That’s the problem our bill addresses.”

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
