University of Michigan Declares ‘WITHHOLDING SEX’ Is ‘Sexual Violence’

Last week, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden stood side by side to announce a new administration initiative to combat sexual assault on college campuses.

Meanwhile, the University of Michigan boasts a set of webpages dedicated to its “Abuse Hurts Initiative”.” The page entitled “Definitions” defines “sexual violence” as “withholding sex and affection” and “discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex.”

But wait. There’s more. A third definition of “sexual violence,” according to the taxpayer-funded school, is “to have sex with other people.”

The College Fix first spotted the University of Michigan’s remarkably strange descriptions of “sexual violence.”

The Obama administration’s anti-sexual assault campaign, dubbed “It’s On Us,” is being conducted in collaboration with over 200 universities around the country, as well as groups such as the NCAA and even the video game company Electronic Arts.

Students who take an “It’s On Us” pledge are asked to change their profile pictures on social media outlets to the campaign’s logo and to supply their emails and ZIP codes to the campaign. Those who participate will have their information forwarded to the Center for American Progress, a leftwing think tank with significant ties to the Obama administration.
