Drunk sex or date rape: can you tell the difference?

I just wanted to let everyone know about an event on campus from 8-9pm tomorrow (Wednesday April 8th) in McCosh 10:

In today’s “hook-up culture” sexual encounters are too often fueled by alcohol. But, just because some students are getting drunk and hooking-up doesn't make it right…or legal. When does a hook-up cross the line? What do the terms “consent” “incapacitated” or “blackout” actually mean? The audience “hears” a trial based on the real-life sexual assault case of Todd and Amy, two college students involved in a drunken sexual interaction after a party. After learning the facts of the case, the audience votes as to whether or not Todd is guilty of sexually assaulting Amy. Brett Sokolow, a higher education attorney who specializes in sexual misconduct, will present this case. Sokolow is currently the President of the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management. Cosponsored with SHARE, SpeakOut, Office of Religious Life, Women & Gender Studies, Inter-Club Council, University Health Services, Women's Center.

I've seen Brett Sokolow's presentation before, and it's really worth attending!
