Right now, if you care about consent, things are rough out there.
We had a proud sexual assaulter in charge of our country just last year. People are debating whether slipping a condom off during sex is rape or just a “sex trend”. Videos show toddlers can understand consent, yet college campuses can’t define it or protect it.
We need things to change, and we need them to change fast.
Consent culture is a challenge to and push against rape culture. It asks, “what would the world be like if we centered consent instead of entitlement and crossing boundaries?” It challenges us to believe that the white supremacist capitalist patriarchy that coerces all of us can be and must be dismantled.
Curious? Check out my intersectional anthology “Ask: Building Consent Culture” from Thorntree Press. Or read some of the writing I’m curating over on Medium (and feel free to submit your own pieces!) Or follow me on social media and join the conversation.
Will you join me?
