Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow says the way rape is defined has changed.
 

“Rape used to have a narrow definition. Rape used to have a definition where it was — it was brutality, it was forced sexual attack and penetration,” Marlow said on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, according to Media Matters.

 
“Now it’s become, really, any sex that the woman ends up regretting that she had.”
 
Marlow said that “leaves us without a lot of clarity.”
 
{mosads}”Because when words lose their meaning, then they can be manipulated,” he said. “Rape used to mean something. We used to all know what it meant. And now we don’t know what it means. And then we don’t know what’s credible and what’s not.”
 
His comments come as a growing number of people have come forward in recent weeks alleging sexual misconduct.
 
GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore is facing growing calls to step aside in the Alabama Senate race amid allegations by multiple women.
 
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) is facing allegations from two women, including one who accused Franken of kissing and groping her without her consent.
 
Multiple media figures are also facing allegations of sexual misconduct. CBS’s Charlie Rose was fired Tuesday after being accused by eight women of unwanted sexual advances.
