  • The Venereal Doctrine: Compulsory Examinations, Sexually Transmitted
           Infections, and the Rape/Prostitution Divide

    • Authors: Scott W. Stern
      Abstract: This Article uncovers a blatantly sexist dynamic that has persisted, largely unnoticed, in American common law for more than a century: courts are far more willing to accept invasive examinations for sexually transmitted infections in women than in men. Remarkably, this disparity has been justified by the same assumption throughout the twentieth century: women with STIs are viewed as a threat to the health of the general public, while men with STIs are viewed as a threat only to individuals, not the public at large. By examining cases involving men accused of rape and women accused of prostitution, this Article documents starkly disparate treatment. For decades, judges across the country have consistently relied on the stereotype that prostitutes with STIs represent such an alarming threat to public health that few measures go too far to stop them from promiscuously spreading these infections. On the other hand, rapists with STIs are a threat only to individual victims, not to the broader public, and thus health measures to hinder their transmission of infection must be far more limited. Together, these opinions comprise a cognizable legal doctrine—the “venereal doctrine.” This doctrine emerged in the early 1900s, as scientific advancements made relatively reliable STI testing a reality, and it evolved throughout the twentieth century. Even following the rights revolution of the Warren Court, this doctrine persisted; remarkably, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the assumptions underlying the doctrine were actually written into law for the first time. These years marked the heyday of hysteria surrounding the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and authorities across the country called for compulsory HIV testing statutes for both men accused of rape and women accused of prostitution. After considerable struggle, legislatures enacted these laws in dozens of states—and they remain on the books today. Yet these laws were firmly grounded in the gendered assumptions of decades past: male rapists were a threat only to their victims, while prostitutes were a threat to the public at large. These laws openly reflect their underlying assumptions—some testing statutes for accused rapists explicitly declare that their purpose is to provide peace of mind to individual victims, and many of these statutes allow testing only at the request of the alleged victim. Compulsory testing statutes for prostitutes, on the other hand, largely remain grounded in general public health powers. When these laws were challenged, courts across the country unanimously upheld them, and once again they openly relied upon gendered assumptions. Significantly, the venereal doctrine flies in the face of scientific data. Modern studies show that female prostitutes very rarely transmit STIs to their customers, while male rapists are relatively likely to transmit STIs to their victims. Therefore, this Article concludes that compulsory pre-conviction STI examinations of accused prostitutes are unconstitutional. The same may be (but is not necessarily) true for examinations of accused rapists.

  • Trans*+ and Intersex Representation and Pathologization: An
           Interdisciplinary Argument for Increased Medical Privacy

    • Authors: Jaydi Funk et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACT As other countries continue to expand cultural, medical, and legal distinctions of gender, practices of the United States often reify the gender binary. Subsequently, this Article underscores the need for a critical interdisciplinary examination of the gender binary and its effects on the (re)production of gender stereotypes in media, within the medical sciences, and in law. By exploring the cultural, medical, and legal reification of the gender binary, we argue that the United States healthcare system should begin to acknowledge the spectrum of gender and to broaden patients’ legal protections regarding non-disclosure and privacy.

  • Standard of Consent in Rape Law in India: Towards an Affirmative Standard

    • Authors: Anupriya Dhonchak
      Abstract: This Article examines how rape law’s conceptualization of consent provides an objective standard to define the subjective experiences of rape survivors. It argues that because “consent” as currently conceptualized by the Indian legal system is often not a potent enough instrument to articulate the free choice of women in patriarchal societies, at the very least the standard of consent must be victim friendly to better preserve women’s sexual autonomy. The Article first provides a brief descriptive survey of the existing standard of consent in Indian rape law and its evolution from previous standards. It then contextualizes consent within Indian law and culture to argue that the current standard especially burdens victims and exonerates perpetrators of responsibility in sexual interactions. To provide such context, the Article analyzes a series of judgments, mythology, politics, penal statutes, and media representation to establish the prevalence of rape culture in India. It highlights a continuing system of misogyny where the same patriarchal institutions that make it acceptable for perpetrators to deprive women of choice during sexual intercourse further deprive them of agency during rape trials. Specifically, this Article reveals how rape adjudication, alleged rapists’ defense tactics during trial, and conversations surrounding rape in Indian courtrooms are replete with cultural rape myths and stereotypes. Having explained this context, the Article examines recent reforms in rape law to prove their inadequacy in realizing the rights of the victim. It concludes that the affirmative standard is a much-needed normative change to reduce legal ambiguity (almost always used to the detriment of the oppressed) with a more specific standard that discourages the implication, rationalization, and generalization of consent into existence when absent. Finally, the Article places this proposed reform within the context of a series of statutory reforms in rape law so far and concludes that it will further the feminist movement by extending rights to a target group of victims that the existing standard within Indian law excludes.

  • Struggle and Resistance: Using International Bodies to Advance Sexual and
           Reproductive Rights in Peru

    • Authors: Camila Gianella et al.
      Abstract: Peru is often highlighted as an example of the internationalization of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) norms, through supra-national litigation. Yet, the impact to petitioners and other similarly situated women in Peruvian society has fallen far short of expectations. This Article argues that the reasons underlying the need to use international SRHR litigation in the first place are indeed the same as those that give rise to poor implementation. Through an analysis of four cases—two that relate to indigenous women’s rights to be protected from abuses of SRHR and two that relate to women’s rights to access abortion under circumstances when it is legal—this Article traces the drivers, origins, and effects of these cases, on both litigants and broader population groups and institutions. In particular, we analyze the impact and limitations of these cases on SRHR norms in Peru.
