Knox Thoughts - A place for open discussion

The Theory and Performance Class has decided to research the issues of sexual assault and responsibility on the Knox Campus with the intention of filtering the anonymous research through a creative lens. Part of that process involves gathering perspectives and opinions from the students and faculty at Knox that have been generated about these issues. The goal is to get an idea of what the college is feeling and thinking about sexual assault and responsibility and to respond to that through a theatrical production.

To this end, we are inviting anyone on campus to respond to a few questions provided in this forum. We encourage you to add your own topics for discussion. To do this simply select click on the "Click Here for All Questions" link and then "Add new thread."

This forum is completely anonymous (you need not "log in"). Please respect the opinions and feelings of others in responding to comments.

Sexual assault is unwanted sexual touching that falls short of intercourse. If someone touches your genitals, breasts, butt, lips, in a sexual way without your consent, that is sexual assault.

Sexual assault includes rape (as I defined it, any situation in which boundaries are clearly broken or a participant says "no" or something similar) but also includes "grey areas"—situations in which one participant never says "no" or "stop" but is also unresponsive, doesn't explicitly consent, and/or is coerced or feels obligated to perform some kind of sexual act. This can include intercourse or just inappropriate contact.
