California's Yes Means Yes Law Lands Some Universities In The Courtroom

How many drinks is too many? Get ready for a lesson on alcohol use and consent to sex.

Only yes means yes, no always means no, and sometimes yes means no when it comes to consenting to sexual activity on college campuses. That's because drunk people are legally incapable of consenting to sex. Criminal courts and school hearings handle the issue of sexual misconduct differently, and sometimes schools end up discriminating against the accused in the process.
