Thank you, Lawrence Lanoff, for including this video in your FB newsfeed.
Consent is simple. Somehow and for some reason we make it seem difficult. But when you break it down - like how we go about making someone a cup of tea - it all falls away and things are so straightforward.
The real reason consent is so hard to understand in our culture is because women aren't seen as independent or equal. If women aren't paid dollar for dollar with men, then why would you need their consent for sex? And if they can't choose when to become mothers then why would they choose when to have a penis inside their vagina?
It really is a slippery slope. Consent is about equality. I love this video.
