Texas may be the next state to replace "no means no" with "yes means yes."
State Sen. Kirk Watson became the latest lawmaker to introduce legislation that would require universities to change their sexual assault policies to reflect the standard of "affirmative consent." If Senate Bill 970 is passed, Texas will join California, New York, and a handful of other states with similar laws, as well as hundreds of individual universities across the country.

The Crown is appealing the March 1 sexual assault acquittal of Bassam Al Rawi, a Halifax taxi driver.
Mr. Al Rawi was charged with sexual assault stemming from a late-night, May 23, 2015, incident in his taxi involving a female passenger. Following a trial in Halifax Provincial Court, Judge Gregory Lenehan acquitted Mr. Al Rawi citing the Crown’s failure to prove the complainant’s lack of consent.

A bill that would have added domestic violence to the list of legal reasons a person can get a divorce in Mississippi died in a House committee on Tuesday after its chairman, state Rep. Andy Gipson (R), said it could open “the floodgates” to more divorces.
“If there’s a case of abuse, that person needs to have change of behavior and a serious change of heart,” he was quoted as saying. “Hopefully even in those cases restoration can happen.”
Every year, people in Japan gather to celebrate Hinamatsuri (also known as Girls' Day), the traditional festival dedicated to young girls. Across the country, families mark the day by displaying dolls in their houses and praying for the good health and happiness of their daughters.
But March 3 will also go down in Japanese history this year for another reason.
Can the state ban sex offenders from social media? That’s the question at the heart of Packingham v. North Carolina, a case argued before the U.S. Supreme Court last week. In 2002, then–21-year-old Lester Gerard Packingham Jr. was indicted for having consensual sex with an underage girl he was dating. After serving a sentence of two years probation, he was required to register as a sex offender.
