Joe Biden had stern words for college students on sexual assault

During a Wednesday speech at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, former Vice President Joe Biden gave an abundantly clear definition of sexual assault, reports BuzzFeed News.

Directing his comments toward the male students in the room, Biden said, "A woman who's dead drunk cannot consent. You are raping her. You are raping her if she cannot say 'it's okay.'"

He later touched upon what constitutes being complicit in an assault, saying, "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 gotta go up to him and say, 'Hey, not in my house, Jack. Not in my house.' Because if you don't, you are an accomplice. "

Biden took on 'locker room' talk as well.

He told the crowd, "I've been in a lot of locker rooms. I don't know where in locker rooms where 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.'"

Biden continued, "Here's the deal guys, you gotta speak up. You cannot let that kind of talk be bred on a college campus."

The former vice president's visit to the university was made on behalf of 'It's On Us,' an initiative he started with Barack Obama.

According to the organization's website, its goal is to, "create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable."
