Consent Video from Brown University

This is a pretty awesome, clear, informative video on “What is Consent”?

Some Highlights:
“Consent IS:
Active, not Passive.  
Fully engaged, and not just going along with it, 
Positively & clearly communicating intent. 

Consent is NOT:
Silence, 
“I don’t know if I want to”
If my partner is intoxicated or under the influence
If there is an absence of yes. 

How do you ask for consent?
Can I kiss you?
Is this okay?
Are you comfortable with this?
What do you like?

Its ALWAYS better to know you have consent and know what the person you are with likes and doesn’t like, then to run the risk of hurting, disrespecting, or triggering the person you are with. 
Educate yourself and your friends on the intricacies of CONSENT.
