Re: "No" has not effect on "implied consent" court rules.

This is absolutely shocking. The sad next step for this is "Well, this chick was at a party where a bunch of other chicks were having sex, so I just assumed she consented by being at a party where other girls were having sex". Just another scary indication of where this culture is going.
