New York assembly passes bill to classify anal and oral contact as rape, not just criminal sex act
from New York Daily News
At the urging of a brave Bronx, New York, teacher brutally raped by a city cop, the state Assembly unanimously passed a bill to toughen the state’s rape laws. The so-called “rape is rape” bill would classify vaginal, anal and oral contact as rape. The latter two, under current state law, are considered criminal sexual conduct, not rape — a distinction some victims say lessens the perceived severity of the crime even though it carries the same criminal penalties.
