Surprise: Young People Are Really Confused Over Consent Signals

Let’s think about this. Over the years, the far left has worked hard to destroy the mores of society. When it comes to sexual relations, they have been pushing notions that it is A-OK for young people (including teens and pre-teens) to be not just sexy, but be sexual. The Leftists and their Feminist subset have pushed for these young folks to not only show themselves being sexy, but to not worry about having sex. They teach this in schools, on the Internet, in movies and on TV, in person. They have no problem with casual, meaningless sex, consistently pushing the boundaries further and further, including for teens, who generally do not have the emotional makeup to deal with that. They say they like kids to be sexual, especially young women. Show it! Flaunt it! Be it! They push women to be hyper-sexual.

Yet, this has all come back to bite them in the posterior, in terms of the supposed culture of rape, especially on college campuses, which tend to be very liberal. Kids pushing the boundaries of sex, as they’ve been taught, and then liberals get upset that they achieved what they wished for

Deeply divided over consent signals

Many embrace “no means no.” They have grown familiar with another three-word standard, “yes means yes.” But America’s college students are deeply divided on how to read the unspoken language of sex.

What if someone undresses? Or gets a condom? Or nods in agreement?

In each of those scenarios, a Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll found, at least 40 percent of current and recent college students said the action established consent for more sexual activity. And at least 40 percent said it did not.

Conflict and confusion about consent pose enormous challenges for colleges scrambling to prevent sexual assault. Many have discovered they need a new curriculum just to teach incoming students about the do’s and don’ts of intimate communication.

One of the biggest problems: Men sometimes see a green light when women are signaling yellow or red.

I don’t really find Dave Chapelle that funny, but, he makes a good point.

The rest of the article exposes just how muddled the situation has become. No means no, yes means yes, no means maybe, yes means no, etc. Sexual assault is never OK, but, if you teach kids to be sexual creatures, to think that casual sex anytime is A-OK, if you teach kids without the emotional makeup to always want sex, and tell them there is nothing wrong with it, what, exactly, do you think will happen?

    The real problem isn’t sex, but alcohol. In the vast majority of these “confusing” cases, one or both — almost always both — of the partners has been drinking. We tell women that they are just as tough as men, but the 120 lb coed who is matching the 180 lb guy drink-for-drink is going to get a lot drunker; that’s simple chemistry.

    Alcohol impairs judgement, and the “yes” decision while drunk can look like an awfully bad one the next morning, and at least a few of these cases have been claimed to be sexual assault.

    But the biggest problem is the attempts by the left to take rape and sexual assault cases on campus out of the hands of proper law enforcement, where the standard of proof is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and give it to college administrators, with a preponderance of the evidence standard. Those administrators have neither the time nor the training nor the inclination for law enforcement investigations, but they do face government pressure to “do something” about alleged sexual assaults; there is no way administrators cab take unbiased decisions under those circumstances.

    There is only one logical course for colleges: they should take the position that all reported sexual assaults will be turned over to the police, because only the police and law enforcement are properly trained to handle such cases.

    Teach the highest rates of teen pregnancy are usually found in red states 3 of the top 13
    and 9 out of 10 of the states with the lowest teen pregnancy rates are blue.Are you suggesting that liberals are forcing red state teens to have sex?
    Was it liberals who somehow made the longest serving GOP Speaker of the House (and 3rd in line to be POTUS) be a serial pedophile when he was a high school teacher and boy scout leader?

    Was it conservatives who made Clinton a sexual predator and liar?

    (And I could be wrong, but I seem to remember Clinton having a slightly higher position in the government.)

    John-“nine out of the ten states with the lowest teen pregnancy rates are blue.” And I highly suspect that the states with the highest total Number of teen pregnancies are in blue states, as those for the most part have the cites with large populations-New York, Chicago, Los Angeles.

    I have a kid that is in his twenties. He thinks that his female peers are nuts and basically trash. I agree.
