“Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission by the victim resulting from the use of force or threat of force by the accused shall not constitute consent.”  -Illionois State Law

“The manner of dress of the victim at the time of the offense shall not constitute consent.”

The laws that define consent vary from state to state, but in every case, the definition is black and white.
