A fantastic read here about the role of consent: http://queerguesscode.wordpress.com/2013/03/22/un-memorizing-the-silence-is-sexy-date-script/
How many times have we tried to teach each other things like “say no if you’re uncomfortable”, “understand and respect your partner’s limits and feelings”, “no means no”, and so on? We keep reminding each other to pay attention to negative signs. And all of this is really good, and really essential, but…
Why aren’t we encouraging each other to ask for positive signs? It is the age of communication, of information, after all.
This is a great piece of writing. Please share it if you find it as nod-worthy as I do!
