...if you're a virgin or perhaps have debilitating autism
like, there's people out there raping people, y'know? right now, even.
it's pretty much as you expect
it's just funny because it's extraordinarily over the top
it's fine though i knew at least one person would have a go at me for not taking the subject seriously
completely justifiable on the grounds of making survivors feel welcome and sad losers who don't care about consent be alone forever.
i was just gonna say something about dapper laughs and how he's an absolute human turd yet somehow has a tv show
...now my blood is boiling.
is it not kinda abundantly obvious that most people (especially boys and men) are in desperate need of education about the meaning, and necessity, of consent? where have you been?
this is a pretty dreadful thing to troll about mate.
If it makes a couple of people rethink their behaviour then it's worth it existing.
The alternative is pretty bleak.
CONSENT IS FUN
I LOVE CONSENT
CONSENT IS SEXY etc. slogans
We don't need to provide sweeteners to make something that should be absolutely integral and a very basic requirement of all sexual activity, seem good. If you don't think consent is "fun" then tough shit but your thoughts on that are completely irrelevant.
I think the actual video is a really vital message though - provide someone with the opportunity to give active consent and they may say no at certain points. If he'd just started taking her clothes off before she was ready then he would be putting pressure on her consent to do other things too. I can see why they go with the "look it's fun" angle because so many twats are like nah who actually does that it would interrupt it! cause it shows people can actually enjoy themselves even when they're asking for active consent (don't think that means "consent" is itself "fun" tho).
