FixedIt: Cosby isn’t on trial for sex, he’s on trial for sexual assault

Cosby has not been charged with having sex, he’s charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault.

Sex and sexual assault are not the same thing. When the media confuse the terms in headlines, they confuse the meaning of them in public perception.

Sex is consenting activity between adults.

Sexual assault, rape and indecent assault are all criminal acts where the victim did not or could not give consent.
