Wait…What’s Not Consent?

 In Uncategorized

Amen to Bumble and Planned Parenthood:  
• flirting is not consent
• alcohol is not consent
• sexting is not consent
• dating is not consent
• nudity is not consent
• silence is not consent
And I’ll add:
• a committed relationship/marriage is not consent
• wearing a certain type of clothing
being asleep is not consent
• having done it before is not consent
• having done it before with you is not consent
• saying “okay” after indicating “no” is not consent
• someone wanting to stop after you’ve already begun is not consent
etc. etc. etc.

I could go on and on. Would you add any other ways someone has not given consent that we need hammered into our cultural understanding of what it actually means for there to be a thoroughly consensual sexual experience?
