Did you know?Alcoholis the drug most commonly used to facilitate sexual assault. Using alcohol to take advantage or incapacitate someone is a form of committing sexual assault. Don't do it. If your partner is enthusiastically and voluntarily saying "yes!" that is a green light. However, if your partner is barely coherent, muttering, non-communicative, half-passed out, or asleep... STOP. Red-light! That means "no."
What isConsent?Consent (kən-sent): noun 1. An enthusiastic, voluntary, “Yes!” 2. not implied 3. not the absence of a "no.” 4. can be revoked at any time.
Asking for consent should be an expected and continuously occurring step in any relationship whether the relationship lasts for a few minutes or for a lifetime. Accepting a culture that does not value consent is very dangerous and often leads to perpetuating different forms of sexual violence. We need to encourage dialogue about asking for consent because it will promote an understanding that each person knows what is best for themselves. This will empower children and adults alike to respect one another even if the end result is not what they had hoped. We must all recognize that we are not entitled to anyone else's body under any circumstances. An easy way to spread the word about consent is by rocking one of our T-shirts to help educate others while you’re at school, on the subway, at the farmers market, or anywhere else you enjoy spending your time!
