Mammas, don’t let your boys grow up to attend California universities and colleges [Darleen Click]
California Democrats have passed a so-called “affirmative consent law” that covers the sexual activity of students who attend California’s public universities and colleges.
The bill’s language clarifies the definition of consent by stating what it is not. “Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent,” it reads. “Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time. The existence of a dating relationship between the persons involved, or the fact of past sexual relations between them, should never by itself be assumed to be an indicator of consent.”
The bill’s language does not require verbal consent, said Claire Conlon, a spokeswoman for [State Senator Kevin] de Leon [Democrat and the bill’s author], adding that it would allow for “verbal and non-verbal” consent. Conlon said the intent of the bill was to change the way school administrators approach their definition of sexual assault. Instead of asking: “Did she say no?” We are having them ask, did she consent?,” Conlon said. The bill does not require specific punishments for students found in violation of the policy.
The vast majority of college students are adults. So if this is the new standard of how we are to define rape and sexual assaults (which are already covered by criminal statutes) why is this law limited only to college students? Why not all adults?
Because it really has little to do with “rape culture” — Conlon giving the clue above by using “she” in her remarks about consent.
Last March we covered how California Seeks to Redefine Consensual Campus Sex as Rape, and we asked the question: “How does classifying most consensual sex as rape help rape victims?”
It doesn’t, of course. The California affirmative consent legislation was not about preventing rapes or other sexual assaults, which already are crimes, but about redefining inter-personal relationships in accordance with radical feminist demands which always view the female as victim of the male patriarchy. […]
Campus relationship regulation now is about the predominance of “rape culture” theory which ensnares men into kangaroo campus courts, and even opposes objective preventative measures, like “Undercover Colors” nail polish that reacts to date-rape drugs.
The normal sequence of romantic interaction now is a violation of law unless there is something more than objectively willing conduct. It’s no longer “against our will,” but rather, a matter of procedural steps imposed on willing, consensual participants in order to avoid creating a crime where none exists.
William Jacobson states the follow parody may soon be California law ….
However, even a signed consent form will mean nothing since the law specifically says consent can be “revoked at any time.”
