That’s how critics dismiss lawmakers’ attempt to combat alarmingly common sexual assaults on women at California’s colleges and universities. But it’s nonsense. When you look at the problem in search of an actual solution rather than a libertarian cliche, the point of the legislation — “yes means yes” — makes a lot more sense as a consent standard...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

These concepts form the basis of the arguments our lawyers intend to raise should the Supreme Court decide to review two lower court’s findings that Utah’s ban on same sex marriage is unconstitutional (“Utah’s gay marriage case is on the way to high court,” Tribune, Aug. 6). But what, gentlemen of the bar, do these phrases mean? I, like authors Burke, Tolman and Mackay (“Supreme Court must affirm right for all to marry,” Aug. 10), concluded that “se...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

In an article that appeared Wednesday on Cosmopolitan’s website, Keli Byers argues that BYU’s Honor Code codifies harmful beliefs that sexual women are ruined, and, with its rules about sexual behavior and modesty, effectively shames women. “The truth is, I’m not a virgin. I’m a sexual woman and a proud feminist, and I don’t feel bad about it.
