Joe Biden Condemns Violence In Powerful Speech On Campus Sexual Assault


I don't know what it's like to worry about being sexually assaulted. Sure, that doesn't mean I haven't been groped or grabbed or cornered, but I'm a 6'1, 220 pound man and if anyone's trying to put me in danger, then they're gonna have to work pretty hard to do anything to me.

I'm not saying my size and sex make me some kind of unstoppable force that's immune to abuse. I'm just saying that I worry about it a whole let less than, let's say, my wife does when she's walking by herself somewhere at night. And that sucks.

But just because I don't worry about being sexually assaulted while out partying, doesn't mean I can't be an advocate for women who are at risk.
