This is what every red-blooded man would think! Or say! Or maybe do! Come on people, it’s way past time to be puritanical in the age of porn. The grownups are not keeping up with the kids if they really think this statement is so outrageous.

Alice Brine Breaks Down Consent = Brilliance

This is motherfucking brilliant.  Thank you, Alice Brine, for this amazing analogy (and Rebekah for the link).  Sometimes you have to flip the tables to make a point.

For me, it all comes down to personal liberty.  Either we all have the right to be safe - our bodies and our property - or its a free for all.

Consent It's Simple as Tea

Thank you, Lawrence Lanoff, for including this video in your FB newsfeed.

Consent is simple.  Somehow and for some reason we make it seem difficult.  But when you break it down - like how we go about making someone a cup of tea - it all falls away and things are so straightforward. 

The real reason consent is so hard to understand in our culture is because women aren't seen as independent or equal.  If women aren't paid dollar for dollar with men, then why would you need their consent for sex?  And if they can't choose when to become mothers then why would they choose when to have a penis inside their vagina? 

It really is a slippery slope.  Consent is about equality. I love this video.

Why is Consent More Focused on Men?

Dr, Betty this question is about consent, a friend showed me this video and I'm not sure I quite agree with everything. Laci green consent 101:

I understand consent and asking permission to enter another persons ''personal space'', but there is such a thing as body language. When someone I like is about to kiss me, we are in that moment I don't expect them to ask me if they can. And many times in our lives we will be kissing and being kissed without wanting, just ask monogamous couples. And of course there is the aspect of taking into account that something that you want today you may not want tomorrow.
