Consent is Sexy4Affirmative Consent policies classify 99% of all sexual encounters as rape. But they don’t do anything to deter sexual assault. Here’s why.

Campaign to Distort the Truth and Trivialize Rape

I Live in a Rape CultureRelying on a series of myths that serve to preclude open debate and engender “rape frenzy,” activists are working to revamp how sexual assault is defined and adjudicated. These changes include:

  1. Watering down legal definitions of sexual assault, thus minimizing the horror of rape.
  2. Removing the presumption of innocence and key due process protections for the accused.
  3. Vastly increasing governmental oversight of citizens’ private sexual lives.

These changes are being promoted by Department of Education policies that mandate felony-level crimes be handled by campus committees; Affirmative Consent policies which classify 99% of sex acts as rape; and a controversial proposal to establish a new Model Penal Code on Sexual Assault and Related Offenses.
