A Bronx school teacher, attacked at gunpoint by an off-duty police officer last year, wants the state to change its rape laws.

What a mess. It's not rape if it's anal penetration? The violence against women will continue.

Teacher Assaulted By Off-Duty Cop Wants Albany To Change Rape Laws
Lydia Cuomo Speaking Out After Being Attacked By Michael Pena Last Year

February 11, 2013 11:16 PM

Lydia Cuomo, who was attacked at gunpoint by an off-duty police officer last year, is headed to Albany to talk to lawmakers about changing the meaning of the word “rape.” 

Allowing her name to be used for the first time, Lydia Cuomo, 26, is headed to Albany to talk to lawmakers about changing the meaning of the word “rape.”

Lydia Cuomo — no relation to Gov. Andrew Cuomo — wants forced anal and oral sex to be classified as rape under the law.

“Right is right,” Lydia Cuomo told CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider. “And he raped me at the end of the day, and he’s not being called a rapist. He is a rapist, and you need to call rape, rape.”

Cuomo said those two acts right now fall under the umbrella words of “sexual assault” and she said that is erroneous because it makes it sound like the attack wasn’t so bad.

“Sexual assault sounds so vague and I don’t think the word ‘sexual’ should be involved in it at all. There’s nothing sexual about it — detest, disgusting violation of someone,” Cuomo told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria.

Michael Pena, a former New York City cop, was convicted of forcing anal and oral sex on Cuomo at gunpoint, but he was not convicted of rape — though he admitted to rape months after a jury deadlocked on the charge.
