It seems the United States is finally getting on board with the idea that anyone can be a victim of sexual abuse and violence and the original defintion of rape as "carnal knowledge of a woman forcibly and against her will" has been tossed on its outdated and woefully discriminatory ass.
And part of the new definition is this: The revised FBI definition says that rape is "the penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object," without the consent of the victim. Also constituting rape under the new definition is "oral penetration by a sex organ of another person" without consent.
A step in the right direction, indeed. But, is it enough?
