Sex Nannies and Social Engineers: Law professors Stephen J. Schulhofer and Erin Murphy

The Left is probing deeper into the American bedroom, apparently with their every SJW breath. Sexual freedom has become "rape culture", with men in the crosshairs of Leftist activists who are pursuing lesbian feminist agendas:
Has the federal government ever had sex?

"The act of sex is not illegal. But if two members of the American Law Institute have their way, it will be — unless you follow their rules.

Law professors Stephen J. Schulhofer and Erin Murphy are trying to update the criminal code when it comes to sex offenses, believing current definitions of rape and sexual assault are antiquated. The focus of their draft is on what constitutes consent. It adopts the "yes means yes," or "affirmative consent" model that was passed in California last year.

The California law applies only to college campuses, however. Schulhofer and Murphy aim to take that definition of consent — which says that before every escalation of a sexual encounter, clear and convincing consent must be given — to the state or federal level. No one actually has sex this way, requesting permission and having it granted perhaps a dozen times in a single encounter.

But the theory that millions of Americans are having sex wrongly has gained currency among campus activists. This new attempt to alter the American Law Institute's Model Penal Code, a highly influential document that has been adopted in whole or in part by many states' legislatures, is part of a push to bring authoritarianism into the bedroom."

[Emphasis added]
Social Justice is always - always - authoritarian/totalitarian. Social Justice never addresses individual justice (traditional justice); it always addresses class issues, and pits one class against another, favoring one class over the other. The SJW crowd will dictate your behaviors in every venue where it has ingress and enough freedom to operate; law is highly vulnerable, and the pursuit of classist social justice will attack personal freedom wherever it is allowed to exist without challenge. The fascination with rape, in a culture where rape has decreased and especially on-campus rape, is a mental disorder: irrational and uncontrollable. It is demonstrably anti-logical. But the term "rape" has cachet; it resonates in the fevered SJW cranium, likely due to the utility of the term in demonizing men. That's highly valued by the lesbian feminist storm troopers and their SJW adjuncts.
