Let’s talkk about consent……
People are taught that consent is a “yes”. But clearly there is a lot of confusion about this topic. I was initially going to make this more of a facetious post geared towards the individuals who disregard boundaries , but number one, that is not who my audience is, and number two, the intent of my blog is to be helpful. ..so I ditched that part of my idea.
Still, people act as if consent is grey when it is really black and white. I will use me for an example. I know that I didn’t give consent. I verbally told him no and that it was never going to happen. He raped me when I was passed out and I woke up to it. However, that day and the next, being raped really messes with your mind and makes you question everything. Not only did I not want to believe that I was raped, I never thought that it would happen to me. Knowing that I didn’t give consent wasn’t enough, it was like I need proof of some sort for my mind.
So I came up with an idea to post what consent is not. So if sex occurs from any of the below, there is no need to doubt or second guess, it is rape.
