Hello Friends,

Here we go with more craziness around preventing sexual assault on campus.

The Dept. of Education (DED) wants college students to follow Affirmative Consent requirements, which they describe as persons’ “affirmative, unambiguous, and voluntary agreement” for any sexual encounter.

And, lawmakers in California claim that Affirmative Consent mandates that both partners give their explicit, verbal consent on a repeated basis throughout the process of having sex.

Now you can’t ask, “Do you want me now?” to be sexy, you have to ask and get an answer, over and over again. And if anti-rape policies keep getting crazier, you better get it on audio tape, with a date and time stamp.

Let’s ask DED Secy. Arne Duncan if his lovemaking sessions include this type of ongoing verbal exchange. Ask him, “The last time you had sex, did you follow Affirmative Consent requirements?”

Here’s Arne Duncan’s email: arne.duncan@ed.gov

And here’s the info on Affirmative Consent. Check it out: http://www.saveservices.org/camp/affirmative-consent/

Thank you!
