This piece makes the Brock Turner episode far more complicated than is necessary. The situation was created by alcohol. He didn’t know how to handle it like most freshmen. And Jane Doe should have known better being older with the college experience behind her. He was seduced by inebriation and a women who failed to take responsibility for her actions. This is not blaming the victim; this is blaming someone who allowed herself to become a victim. Consent becomes irrelevant when you drink yourself senseless. Empowerment and vulnerability are difficult to reconcile.
